STRAIGHTEN OUT 2014

Post by Bag Lady » 28 Jan 2014, 11:26

Last Friday night in a social club in Ruislip these guys were fantastic. A good turnout with a few familiar faces in the audience. It was definitely worth the rainy drive for some excellent renditions of Mk1 classics and plenty of wacky dancing. Big Al’s t-shirt stayed on until Sleazy when Ravenette intervened.

:twisted: It had to be done, he looked like he needed all the help he could get...

Was an extremely enjoyable night.

It was announced as a "greatest hits" set at the start and included GB, EF, SLG, ATS, 96 Tears, Shut Up, Grip, Thrown Away, Who Wants the World, Sewer, Genetix, Peaches, NMH, Straighten Out, Curfew, Duchess, Peasant, Raven, 5 Minutes. Probably missed something out apart from Sleazy.

Toiler was definitely played too. And I want to say Princess of the Street or is that a false memory?

Nope I think you are right about Princess, have a vague recollection about that one.... Also remember a joke being made about it being a Shadows gig with the moves being made on the dance floor...?

An added bonus for those of you going to Hammersmith. Straighten Out will be playing a set at the Hope and Anchor beforehand from 3-3.30 and will finish by 5. Tickets a fiver! I'm in!

Looks like it's going to be a pretty damn good day! :smt023
