GIG 265: Life of Agony / Ruth Ruth / Bif Naked – LA2, 20th February 1996

Working at a record shop wasn't all about standing around listening to, and chattingg about, music all day. Sure, it was great being able to play what you wanted through the stores speaker system, buy discounted music, and chat industry gossip with the record company reps that came by - as well as meeting a … Continue reading GIG 265: Life of Agony / Ruth Ruth / Bif Naked – LA2, 20th February 1996

GIG 240: Die Krupps / Waltari / Leech Woman – LA2, 18th October 1995

Die Krupps rolled back into town, heading the LA2. I'd seen them twice before, both times back in 1994. The first time headlining their own gig at The Underworld in Camden (GIG 153), and then six months later supporting Paradise Lost at The Astoria (GIG 180). Despite being advertised Econoline Crush weren't supporting, which was … Continue reading GIG 240: Die Krupps / Waltari / Leech Woman – LA2, 18th October 1995

GIG 222: Sheep On Drugs / Cranium H.F. – LA2, 22nd July 1995

This was almost my last ever concert. It was a Saturday night and I did this gig at the LA2, headed to Slimelight all night, my parents for lunch and the afternoon on Sunday followed by seeing a load of friends on Sunday night. On Monday I was off to Manchester (well, Stockport) to stay … Continue reading GIG 222: Sheep On Drugs / Cranium H.F. – LA2, 22nd July 1995

GIG 199: Sheep On Drugs / Spank Organisation / Rancho Diablo – LA2, 8th March 1995

The last time I'd seen Sheep On Drugs they were playing The Astoria (GIG 175), LA2's big brother next door. I'd seen them at the LA2 before too, but that was back in October 1993 (GIG 136) which was also the first time I saw them live. But they'd completed the circle and were back … Continue reading GIG 199: Sheep On Drugs / Spank Organisation / Rancho Diablo – LA2, 8th March 1995

GIG 190: Cardiacs / Frog / Pop.A.Cat.A.Petal – LA2, 10th December 1994

I'd previously seen the Cardiacs at Feet First in Camden Palace earlier in the year (GIG 156) and really enjoyed them. They were also one of the favourite bands of one of my best friends, Alex, who was back for the weekend (or maybe Christmas) from Oxford Uni so I hooked up with her and … Continue reading GIG 190: Cardiacs / Frog / Pop.A.Cat.A.Petal – LA2, 10th December 1994
