|Snazzy wide angle HD.....didn't have that back in the day !|
|Someone please explain the pink boa to me !|
Next up on my list of to not only see, but pay attention to, were Chris, Clive & Bob, collectively known as The Hillmans....however it wasn't to be due to the combination of a malfunctioning pyrotecnics device and a bad case of the squits. The last minute stand-ins 'The Dukes of Bordello' doing a Sterling job (They actually took the opening slot).
|And the joint was a rockin'|
I probably should mention at this stage, that for the occasion, a ltd edition cd had been made and by ltd I mean very limited...like just fifty hand numbered copies (both singles, the mini LP and the John Peel sessions all gathered together) and the last remaining copies were launched into the audience midway through their set ! The gig was also filmed by a certain Mr Alan Gange (who has filmed the previous Pompey Rumbles too) but I don't have any contact details so you'll have to do the detective bit yourselves. Although if you trawl youtube I'm sure you'll find plenty of clips.
|The rather unfortunate 'Gonk' photo, it's just the light.|
Just a note, Debbie will be in Paris on the 16th Dec bashing the skins for Dutronc ! Allez les gars (Merci Mr Noone).
Cheers to Glyn & Grogsy for the photos.
