A few for me too

Opening with Burning Up Time in Cardiff Top Rank 79. I thought my chest was gonna explode when the bass kicked in

Ringing my brother from school and 'begging' him to go and buy me Black & White with the free white EP. He said f off but it was there when i got home. Top bloke.

Meeting JJ, Dave, Paul & Baz at the Pontins convention. Baz was shit hot like i'd known him for years. Class
i want something good to die for, to make it beautiful to live

In 2000 the band did a CSE show for the military in NI.
I suitably thrashed myself about in what was an intimate gig so much that PR shoved the mic infront of my gob and let me sing the last line to Duchess.
An honour and life long memory.

Just for you then Gizzy....

2 that immediately spring to mind:

Birmingham Odeon 85 or 85 (can't remember)
The sheer rush of adrenalin when Toiler started. I stood up to get to the aisle and was promptly knocked flat on the floor in a rush of twenty or so other people trying to get to the front past the outer ring of bouncers.

Getting a card on my wedding day from Mk2. Mrs C was made up, I can tell you.

:lol:

1 Seeing HAC walk into my mums front room in Dublin with black guitar , walking up to me and saying , Happy 40th birthday , before launching into a 40 minute set which opened with my favorite track Duchess..he stayed in the house until 2.30 am , and I drove him to the Airport the following afternoon ...Thanks Mum and Sally Anne for a sureal surprise ...have it all on DVD ..PRICELESS.

2. Getting the original Peaches sleeve , Jap X certs ( its still the most amazing stranglers vinyl package) , Jap 12" s ...they aint rare but so exciting at the time
3. Golden Brown Tour - First gig.. Hammersmith .
4 Golden Brown going to No 4 and then No 2 ...the anticipation of a No 1.
5. Discovering Columbian Grip and SBC and obtaining them ..none of us knew they existed and in sleeves!
6.All my 50 trips to ENGERLAND to see all the MK 1 tours 1982-1990
7. Peterborugh Convention.
8. Hearing Raven/BandW/Nosferatu for the first time
9.Everytime I buy an Stranglers Acetate ..they are so beauuuutiful!
10.Having the original prints of the first professional band photoshoot by Guildford Photography 1974.

I could go on ..we all could.
wants to be left alone....
