GIG 251: Children On Stun / All Living Fear / Cathedral Lung – Borderline, 3rd December 1995

Sunday night - but not Goth night at The Marquee (which to be fair I'd not been to for a few months) but Goth night at The Borderline instead. The Borderline which was literally just around the corner from the Marquee so I'm not sure what was on at The Marquee that night but if … Continue reading GIG 251: Children On Stun / All Living Fear / Cathedral Lung – Borderline, 3rd December 1995

GIG 250: Mega City Four – Camden Palace, 21st November 1995

I'd just started a new part-time job at an off license in Finchley, only a few hours a day to bring in a little bit of money, and had headed to a friends house (Emily) in Kentish Town after work and hung out watching amovie until just before midnight. Being a Tuesday I headed down … Continue reading GIG 250: Mega City Four – Camden Palace, 21st November 1995

GIG 249: Longpigs / Lick – Camden Palace, 14th November 1995

The Longpigs were one of the many bands that rode the Britpop wave in the mid-90's. They released a couple fo singles in 1995 but it wasn't until the follolwing year, when Britpop was at full steam, that they managed to get majort chart success with four Top 40 singles, with two of those reaching … Continue reading GIG 249: Longpigs / Lick – Camden Palace, 14th November 1995

GIG 248: Incubus Succubus / Dream Disciples – The Underworld, 10th November 1995

Friday night in Camden was not unusual. I used to head to Camden most Fridays for The Electric Ballroom (mixing things up with the occasional Friday nights clubbing at Rockscene held at The Astoria). What we did before hand used to change around - sometimes drinking in Camden at The Dev or World's End, sometimes … Continue reading GIG 248: Incubus Succubus / Dream Disciples – The Underworld, 10th November 1995

GIG 247: EMF – Camden Palace, 7th November 1995

I find it amusing that I saw EMF twice. Not because of actually seeing them, I quite liked a few of their albums since 'Unbelievable' charted and seemingly took over the world, but because of the times I actually saw them. I'd first seen them supporting rock band Terrorvision (GIG 210) which seemed like an … Continue reading GIG 247: EMF – Camden Palace, 7th November 1995

GIG 246: Pete Tong / The Grid / N-Trance / Sunscreem – The Underworld, 3rd November 1995

Tonights Camden Live session was broadcast live on Radio 1 from The Underworld. Billed as 'Pete Tong featuring Special Guests' the ticket has confused me for some time as my notes never made mention of Pete Tong. But having looked into the night online to try and work it out it seems that the evening … Continue reading GIG 246: Pete Tong / The Grid / N-Trance / Sunscreem – The Underworld, 3rd November 1995

GIG 245: Sheep On Drugs – Camden Palace, 31st October 1995

The last day of October. Camden Palace. My third gig in as many days. My second Sheep On Drugs gig in three days. Halloween. All the ingredients you need for anotehr cracking night out at Feet First. This was my twelth gig of October (13 if you include the instore HMV set by The Chemical … Continue reading GIG 245: Sheep On Drugs – Camden Palace, 31st October 1995

GIG 244: Echobelly / Audioweb / Northern Uproar – The Underworld, 30th October 1995

It was The Camden Crawl - a week of gigs from both established, new, and up-and-coming artists playing a variety of venues in Camden Town. There were a lot of music venues in Camden so it was a pretty busy schedule. I'd picked up tickets for a couple of the gigs, plus was going to … Continue reading GIG 244: Echobelly / Audioweb / Northern Uproar – The Underworld, 30th October 1995

GIG 243: Front Line Assembly / Sheep on Drugs / Cubanate – Astoria, 29th October 1995

This was almost a dream line-up for me. Three of my favourite industrial bands all on the same bill - and finally my first time seeing Front Line Assembly live! To say I was in my element on this Sunday is probably a big understatement. I'd been out clubbing all night for a friends (Stacy) … Continue reading GIG 243: Front Line Assembly / Sheep on Drugs / Cubanate – Astoria, 29th October 1995
