Just collected me thoughts after a mini break part of which took in Hugh at Louth.
Subject to change at any moment a dose of manflu allows me to indulge in the following during a fit of boredom. Which brings us nicely onto the first entry…
Sure some of the original members may be missing in action The Vibrators being the worse hit with only their drummer standing. So I was intrigued as to whether they’d come across as a tribute band. I was also looking forward to seeing them as the last time I checked them out was at the 1996 “Holidays In The Sun” punk fest in Blackpool. The classics were given a new lease of life and original drummer “Eddie” doing a sterling job of powerhouse drumming whilst having a stint on vocals on some of the tracks.
Jumped at the chance to see The Courtneys. It was disappointing really to see such a low turn out. There must have been about 30 of us in the crowd.
Sat in the pub opposite the venue before the gig we’re taking on a much needed cool beer in the 30+C heat. A quick visit to the cash machine for more Euros and we’re in the venue getting patted down by security and off we go.
