live music

This is a list of the best of the live music i have personally seen.

The Orb live at Brixton Academy. The first night was an alnighter.It was so good i went back the next night.

the Cocteau Twins at Brixton academy in 1994.

the Cocteau Twins at the Royal Albert Hall in about 1996.

The Smiths at the Corn Exchange in Brighton . the Meat is Murder tour.

Spiritualized at the event in Brighton. I cant remember the year.

The Sisters of Mercy at The Royal Albert Hall in 1985.

I saw My Bloody Valentine at a gig in London that was one of their last times they played live.

4AD records 13th birthday event at the ICA in london in 1993. It went on over 4 nights with a different line up every night playing.

I remember seeing a band in Brighton who were called Voodoo Child.They were inspired by the Jimi Hendrix experience but wrote their own material.I saw them 3 times in 1987 -1988.

I went to a one day event in Finsbury Park in London. It was one of the last times that Hawkwind played live with the original line up plus Dr And The Medics, Gaye bikers on acid and all those sort of bands that were around in 1987. The event was called "Acid Daze".

  1. The Hawkwind line-up at 'Acid Daze' wasn't even close to being the original line-up! On that day, it was Dave Brock, Alan Davey, Huw Lloyd-Langton, Harvey Bainbridge and Danny Thompson with Lemmy guesting on the 'Silver Machine' encore. Only Dave and Huw were in the original line-up (circa 1969-70).
