World Chat / Mark E. Smith

The singer announced 'little girl' in Newcastle but Cheetah said he hated it, so they did call on you instead.

Well that explains that then!

Cheetah was VERY happy last night.


During the encore section, during some chat between band and crowd, one young lad shouted - "I'm going to start a band because of you! Because of THIS gig! You're inspirational". It brought the house down and no fewer than three thumbs up's from Mr Chrome!

Just back from seeing the two still playing / surviving Dead Boys (surely that wins oxymoron of the week?!). Yep, a 40 minute set and a 15 minute encore - they've been working up extra songs at sound checks apparently. Great stuff, despite an unusually 'muddy' sound for The Rescue Rooms, delivered to a decent crowd for a Wednesday night.

Only moan: they didn't play "Little Girl". This seemed a natural choice for a live setting since most folk know the song from the plethora of versions of it out there.

They played in three gigs in three days in my part of world over the weekend, but I didn't bother going to any of them. Anyone seen this tour?

I loved them at Rebellion - but as JL said at the time, that set wasn't for the "greatest hits" fraternity!

I see that PiL have just been announced for Rebellion. This is a little surprising considering how 'divisive' they were on there last appearance there.

The Damned supporting the atrocious "Hollywood Vampires" on a UK arena tour.

Captain Sensible and Johnny Depp anyone?

Thought not...

Hopefully catching them in Nottingham on Wednesday - got my ticket the day it was announced.

Watch it without the sound and you would think it was for Hawkwind!

I've just seen on the BBC website that Mark E. Smith has died aged 60. No other details.
