Blog: First Gig Of The Year

< previous next >
We gathered on Friday night in the ROCK CAPITAL OF BRITAIN: Sheffield! We were without Mr Frankie Machine (he's in New York, lucky blighter) but otherwise it was a full compliment of Validators who drank, argued about the tracklisting for the album, soundchecked, then... er... went for a meal in an Italian Restaurant. We are SO ROck and Roll.

We got back to find a whole lot of people had arrived - many of them there on purpose, to see US! I have a very nice time INDEED for the rest of the evening wandering around talking to all the various groups of people who'd made the effort to come out, some of whom had come from DISTANT PLACES even. When we played it was thus to an actual real-life CROWD of people, many of whom even knew the WORDS, and this is what we played:
  • Quality Of Life Enhancement Device
  • Hey Hey 16K
  • Leave My Brother Alone
  • Billy Jones Is Dead
  • Better Things To Do
  • The Fight For History
  • The Lesson Of The Smiths
  • Easily Impressed

  • Live debut for the full band version of "Leave My Brother Alone"! It all went rather well I must say, and afterwards we cavorted around chatting to people and drinking the really rather nice BEER they sell in The Grapes. It was a GOOD first gig of the year!
