O R I G I N A L L I N E - U P!!!
Anyone else going?
They were acesome when I saw them back in the early 90s.
'cause i will talk, maybe you will listen...
I can't see that I'm likely to drag myself all the way up there.
No. I'm not. Although nostalgia is all well and good, let's not forget one important fact: they were shit.
Saw them several times 'back in the day' supporting The Wonder Stuff etc and they were always hoplessly punching well below their weight in terms of sound and general amateurish stage presence. Some loon of a promotor had them come on after Killing Joke at the Phoenix Festival back in '94, never has a field of people retreated to the bar so quickly. Embarrassing.
Great band. Muchly missed....
...it would be a bit rubbish without him! Nicest bloke in music I say.
and Happy is one of the ringtones on my phone.
Made the mistake of going to a Wonder Stuff show a few years back and it was absolutely the worst gig I have ever been to. A load of people who haven't listened to a record for 12 years, grinning like they were watching something brilliant, that is clearly shit (yes - according to me), makes me utterly depressed. Saw Jimbob from Carter solo too - had to leave minutes in.
Funny how those fraggle acts aged so very very badly.
