GIG 302 : Altered States / Dream City Film Club – Borderline, 1st August 1996

Thursday night and a double Borderline bill of a gig and then the Borderline's Rockit Club. The gig was for goth band Altered States and one of my favourite bands Dream City Film Club.

GIG 293: Puressence / Feeder / Blue Max – The Garage, 19th June 1996

I'd previously seen Puressence at The 100 Club back in April (GIG 272) and they'd blown me away. The singles, EP and debut album (the latter of which was released just before the April gig) were stunning and I've always been amazed that the band never made a bigger splash on the live scene or … Continue reading GIG 293: Puressence / Feeder / Blue Max – The Garage, 19th June 1996
