Straighten out at the Ginglik, 2008

Post by Bubba » 01 Feb 2015, 23:05

Me in another life as lead singer/guitarist of Straighten Out - the Stranglers tribute band. I'm posting this as it's the only known footage of one of my favourite gigs, at the Ginglik in Shepherd's Bush. We played the afternoon session when the Stranglers were playing The Shepherd's Bush Empire in the evening and loads of the "familyinblack" turned up to watch.
The Ginglik is notable as it was once a public toilet in which the late, great Wilfrid Brambell (Dad Steptoe) was once arrested for "importuning in a public place".

It's not the Stranglers without Cornwell.

Nice one. I was there.
