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 236: Die Laughing / Midnight Configuration / All Living Fear – Borderline, 8th October 1995

I'd been to The Slimelight all night and hadn't woken up until 5pm, so this 'evening' gig almost felt like a mid-morning affair for me. To be honest I'm glad I managed to make it in time as I'd just pulled two all-nighters clubbing over the weekend and was feeling fairly shattered. I hadn't seen … Continue reading GIG 236: Die Laughing / Midnight Configuration / All Living Fear – Borderline, 8th October 1995

GIG 218: Sunshot / John Palmer / The Valley Of The Dolls – Borderline, 3rd July 1995

Saturday may have seen us at Wembley Arena seeing big pop acts, but come Monday evening Mike and myself were back at The Borderline for something much more our usual fare of music. Tonight was a chance to see Sunshot again. I hadn't seen them for over a year (GIG 169) and that was way … Continue reading GIG 218: Sunshot / John Palmer / The Valley Of The Dolls – Borderline, 3rd July 1995

GIG 216: Econoline Crush / Interact – The Borderline, 17th June 1995

Econoline Crush were a Canadian Alt-Rock band that I liked so seeing them play the relatively small Borderline was a real treat. A few of us met up for the gig, which was on a Saturday evening so we kind of treated it as a warm up before we went clubbing at Slimelight at the … Continue reading GIG 216: Econoline Crush / Interact – The Borderline, 17th June 1995

GIG 194: Judda / Andromeda Strain / Nylon – The Borderline, 5th January 1995

It only took my five days of 1995 to get to my first gig of the year, and it was to see an old favourite - Judda. For a Thursday night gig in the first week after the Christmas/New Years holidays it was pretty well attended with loads of people I knew at the show. … Continue reading GIG 194: Judda / Andromeda Strain / Nylon – The Borderline, 5th January 1995

GIG 118: Creaming Jesus / Judda / Death By Crimpers – The Borderline, 28th May 1993

This was a great gig, not least because I was managing to see Creaming Jesus again - who were always fun live - but I was also introduced to Judda. Well, I say 'introduced to' - I actually already knew of the band as someone I knew was in them, but I'd never heard them … Continue reading GIG 118: Creaming Jesus / Judda / Death By Crimpers – The Borderline, 28th May 1993

GIG 116: Fibrehead / Compulsion – The Borderline, 7th April 1993

I’d just started going out with a girl called Sue just over a week before this gig and it was the first one we went to together. We’d actually got tickets (before we started seeing each other) for Guns N’ Roses at Milton Keynes Bowl for the end of May (GIG 119) but hooking up … Continue reading GIG 116: Fibrehead / Compulsion – The Borderline, 7th April 1993

GIG 090: Creaming Jesus / Nutmeg / Working With Tomatoes – The Borderline, 20th July 1991

It was Saturday night and Creaming Jesus (then one of my favourite live bands) were playing the Borderline. Was there any doubt I'd be there? Creaming Jesus always had a fantastic energy around them, and the mosh pit (something many people don't equate to 'goth' bands all that often) had the right balance between physical-yet-friendly. … Continue reading GIG 090: Creaming Jesus / Nutmeg / Working With Tomatoes – The Borderline, 20th July 1991

GIG 068: King Swamp / Q Lazzarus – The Borderline, 26th October 1990

I'm pretty sure this was the last time I saw King Swamp. They were a great band live and, as I've said in previous gig write-ups, I still listen to their debut album a reasonable amount over three decades later. Every time I listen to it it certainly reminds me of a set of friends … Continue reading GIG 068: King Swamp / Q Lazzarus – The Borderline, 26th October 1990
