Is this really the first BSP gig this year? Well it’s definitely my first time in “The Church”.
Let me take you on a pub crawl around Leeds in the late 90s…..
OK I’ll admit it, I’m not a massive Dears fan. I appreciate their work but I don’t listen to them much or have all their albums or anything. However, to have not seen them in Leeds at less than £20 a ticket would’ve been criminal.
I think this was 1998? Could’ve been the year before when they played here in May. My memory is hazy here. We saw them at Reading Festival 1997 and we were going to see them at Breeze Festival in Leeds in 1998 but we left before they came on as the festival was a shambles.
Playing town halls in small towns seems to be a thing in 2016. So when one of my favourite bands The Wedding Present announced they were playing my hometown then I’m there.
