That's what happens when you loose half your band Jock.

Steve Grantley is probably my favourite ever drummer.

Yep, Damned gig was very very good! Don't remember too many details, but I enjoyed it immensely.
New stuff and old stuff was performed with a great deal of energy.

The Alarm were quite good as well (Fred, just skip this bit), even played songs I'd hoped for last time I saw them (e.g. Strength). I think it's still Craig Adams (ex Sisters, Mission etc.) on bass.

Oh, and as Mrs F said, I saw a stranger on the train, his t-shirt seemed to be the Ramones "Rockaway Beach" shirt (at least the cartoon looked like it), some guy from the Damned board had posted there he'd wear that one, so I went up to him and asked him if it was him. He was indeed, nice to have a short chat.  8)

It's hard to see, but it is Craig 'Luthor!' Adams on bass and it looks a bit like Steve Grantley on drums, so they are back to full STRENGTH!  8)

Apparently Duesseldorf gig at Zakk has been cancelled (they say the band postponed the whole tour to next year).  :(

Are they really only doing 3 songs from the latest album in thier sets? And not doing 'Shallow Diamonds'! I hope they're not doing it because of the bad reception the songs got at London Rebellion from a few idiots. Screw the nostalgists...play the new stuff.
