So, let's have something from the unrivalled masters of the genre, Dr Feelgood:
I have always regretted never having seen this classic line up: Wilko Johnson, Lee Brilleaux, John B. Sparks and The Big Figure. I was therefore somewhat surprised when, at a university reunion last year, someone claimed that not only had we seen them (at Huddersfield Poly apparently), but that I had written a review of the gig for the student newspaper. Funny thing, memory.
Best gig I've ever been to was Dr Feelgood c.1983. Could have powered the National Grid.ReplyDelete
I am tempted to agree - saw them in 84, only Lee Brilleaux left from the original lineup, and in a small venue, but they were just fantastic, and Lee had quite some charisma - 'do not mess with this man' - and obligatory sharp and shiny mohair suit. Happy days.ReplyDelete
