Michael 'Dik Mik' Davies.
Hawkwind ('69 - '73)

The 100 Club was excellent last night.

Only about 3/4 full but I always find that at this time of year. And no trains running in the East doesn't help. All the usual suspects in The Ship before hand. And a few people who came over 'cause of Arturo's Lurker's cancelling their gig at the New Cross Inn.

The Featherz are now a 5 piece and have a fuller sound but still have half a set of covers. They entertained. Mass sing-a-long top Bowie's 'Moonage Daydream'. And, incidentally, Danie is the guest vocalist on the new single by the 'other' Lurkers (Pete Stride, Nigel Moore & Esso). It's out on 'Human Punk' records and they were the promoters of tonight's gig.

On Trial were as punk as On Trial always are. Nice set. They're 4 albums in now and a 5th due.

London SS made the 100 Club feel like we'd been transported back to New York in 1973 or something. Surprisingly good especially 'Sick On You', and as guitarist Eunan Brady played on the original Hollywood Brats version a bit of a treat. Obviously none of the more famous original members but a good band nonetheless. I bought their EP of original songs and I'll be giving that a spin once I've woken up a bit.

The Members were really tight with 'new boy' Calle Engelmarc's guitar giving the old songs a new 'oomph' and his input bodes well for the new studio stuff to come. Nice new 'best off' CD/album which finally sees ALL their 7" singles for different labels on one release.

And a quick journey home saw us indoors by 12.30. And when the Elizabeth Line opens we'll be able to do 'door to door' in 37 minutes. That'll be nice. :)

Chuck Mosley.
Original singer for Faith No More and a couple of years in Bad Brains.

Watched all of 'Tin Star' in one day.
Started intriguing, got depressing and I had to fast-forward through the last three episodes just to get it over with.

Now half way through 'The Sinner' which is equally as 'dark' but I haven't felt the need to hit the fast-forward yet.

The Members, The London SS, The Featherz, On Trial UK and, erm, Gene Putney? Saturday at The 100 Club.

Then seeing The Men That Will Not Be Blamed For Nothing both on Sunday 26th and Monday 27th.

A gap until 23rd December when it's Ruts DC and Department S. Again At The 100 Club.

And another gap until 20th January when it's TV and Dr. Feelgood at The Borderline.

Knowing how it's gone in previous years I'll probably end up at 3 or 4 other gigs that I hadn't planned for over the period that I usually say I'm staying in for.
It never works out that I actually stay in.

Got tickets for Saturday 20th January at The Borderline.

Not sure I'll stick around for all of the current Dr. Feelgood...

Watched 'D.O.A' last night.
80% Pistols.

I thought it was a shit documentary.

Pretty good so far.

And seeing Anna Torv again reminded's time to re watch all of 'Fringe'...

Due to 'Pinkeye' had to give away my ticket for Tom Robinson tonight.
Especially as (hush hush) a certain Danny is supposed to be getting up on stage tonight.

Oh well, got a ticket for the 8th December show.

Currently listening to a jolly compilation CD called 'Punk Rock Halloween; Loud, Fast & Scary'.
Includes first new studio recording by 999 for 10 years, The Members doing Screaming Lord Sutch's 'Jack The Ripper', UK Subs, The Vibrators and lot's of other creepy stuff for the season...

Nice one! Did the current DMW line up also do "Kill the Pain"?

Was it a pleasing weekend overall?

They did a complete mix of old Ruts songs, old and new Ruts DC songs including 'Kill The Pain', 'Mighty Soldier' and 'Music Must Destroy'. 'In A Rut' had a Pink Floyd 'Lucifer Sam' tribute in the middle of it. An excellent set.

The whole weekend was brilliant and I'd say my highlights were Ruts DC, Department S, Skids, The Vapors, John Otway.....oh....basically everybody...

...except 'Hung Like Hanratty'. Just don't get why everyone raved over them.

But we booked for next year.
