Gigs in the West Country

 I have a fb group called Old Radstock and recently we were discussing gigs in the area who played where. Them with Van Morrison played Coleford British Legion as did Lulu and the Luvvers. Beatles played the Pavilion, Bath. John Lee Hooker played there too.

Brix & the Extricated at the Thekla Bristol

If you are an old Fall fan there is only one show in town these days the band made up of old stalwarts from the glory days of the Fall. We went as a family group - daughter Celia got at the front and took this photo and was given a pick by Brix for dancing. Sister Anne drove. The set was excellent - old Fall classics like New Prinz, Cruiser's Creek, Deadbeat Descendant - the years rolled away under the wheels of the Hanley brother's juggernaut-style rhythm section. Their own songs were good too - all in all a great package. Brix was a ball of energy and enthusiasm filling the old boat with warmth. A night out to remember.
