King Kurt! They are still going strong? Loved "Destination Zululand". I didn't know they attracted tall people. You're not in the Netherlands?
No mate Newcastle Under Lyme.
Honestly it was a tall convention.
Band were great fun.
Aha! I just couldn't resist it because Dutch men are the tallest in Europe and Dutch women are the third tallest. I can imagine that it was great fun - King Kurt was full throttle and a big party factor when I was young. Glad you enjoyed it! I will keep an eye open in case they visit my glacier.
Went to see Penelope Isles on Friday, at Rough Trade Bristol. Great new band. Ended up standing next to the guitarist's and his bass playing/keyboard playing sister's, parents! And after, we chatted to the band too. Which was nice...
The Chats supported by Bad//Dreams. Both ace. Brilliant crowd all the way through, especially for a Tuesday night
Really, really wanted to go to this ... hummed and hawed for ages over it because it clashed with the Luton game.
Ultimately chose the footy but wish I hadn't now, as i got a puncture on the A500 and didn't even make it to the match.
An hour earlier I was sooo close (flip of a coin) to getting the train to Manchester.
Feel like I proper missed out now ...
Flew solo for this one and was also in two minds whether or not to go. I was amazed they were in the Ritz in the first place, thought they'd be in somewhere like the Gorilla. Properly underestimated how popular they were. Really glad I went. Best crowd I've seen for long time and I think the Ritz is probably my favourite venue in Manchester. Right size, easy to get to and easy to get a beer.
Excellent mate. Two original members but no Vincent Crane of course. I thought they’d be a kind of turbo tribute act, but they were much more than that with an authentic continuation of the Rooster sound. Had a lovely chat with the band prior to the gig too.
