On Saturday we had 3 bands all making their debut there. First up was Juratory, billed as “Hateful, load and angry” which was a pretty good description! I was (Just about) getting in to one or two tracks, but they were not really my thing. As I said to a friend "Not music to drive up Pool bank to!"
Next up were Gothzilla. At
first I was a bit worried about the hats, Top hats with welding goggles and an
army officer`s type flat cap. But 3 notes in and I loved them. They were brilliant
! This IS Goth music, how it should be, how it was, how may it long to be!
That left Chambers, two
sisters whose mother when carrying them must have listened to a lot of Deep Purple
and Lead Zeppelin! As throughout their show I had the feeling that they were
just about to break into “Smoke on the Water” or “Whole Lotta Love” but
not quite. So basically loud heavy riffs
and drums. Again not my cup of tea.
The songs that stood out to me were; Today Is A Good Day To Die, Falling Down and the excellent Temple Of Sound.

After the bands came the club night, and Howard stated by Playing Transmission so that`s me on the dance floor, and quickly followed it by Body Electric then I managed a bit of a sit down before The Cramps called and then The Clash, 2 more I forget and Killing Joke, which was one too many for my knee. Ouch it hurt, (and 3 days later it still does) But what a great night.
So will I manage another 4 years?
Will my knee more to the point
