The Stranglers–Leeds Carling Academy 21st March 2014

How many times have I seen this band now? First gig back in 1990 with original singer Hugh Cornwell and now on their 40th year I’m seeing them back at Leeds. This is fast becoming an annual event now. Must be the 6th year they’ve played here in March? read more

The Fall–Leeds Irish Centre 9th March 2005

Mr Smith keeps us waiting – after far too many drinks and a good while after support band The Fall appear at 22:30 hours! They seem to rush through the set but it’s a corker Touch Sensitive, White Lightning, Boxotocis, (some new stuff that sounds very cool).  Friend of ours jumps on stage and next thing we know he’s arms around Mark E Smith and singing away.  23:40 and it’s all over.  Up there with one of my best Fall gigs.
