I made a field trip into the world of 70s punk last night for a triple bill of Petesy Burns’ Hoakers (actually, a new power trio performing entirely new and fabulous repertoire), Henry Cluney’s XSLF (i.e. the guitar player from SLF’s first three albums plus some other guys – including a blistering drummer from the Defects on this occasion) with a guest appearance from a man from the Defects singing ‘Alternative Ulster’, and then the legendary 999.
It was good fun. Perhaps we need to help 999 get to that 50th anniversary (four years away) but seeing their shows and buying their t-shirts? One tip, though – have the right money at the merchandise stand. 😀 Nick Cash seemed to go into some fugue state when the matter of three quid change for a T shirt purchase came up. But maybe that’s why they call him ‘Nick Cash’… We got there in the end. 🙂
