Gigography of Paul Clarke for 1990

PaulyGigography ≫ 1990

Getting there with my gigography now, the list of all the gigs I was at, from 1987 up to about now. It's a natural step from my Best gigs of all time post. Well that's the theory, but there's A LOT missing. I have added details from the big bag of old gig tickets that I gathered while I was in London, and a box of old concert tickets and things from Mum + Dad's loft. Also got lots of gaps regarding bands seen at festivals, they'll prob'ly stay missing, it's so hard to remember. There's a lot missing where I've lost tickets or never had them, most of the guestlist actions during my NME + Popex years + that. Yeah I know very geeky, let's let that go though, I'm having fun remembering this stuff. At least I've not started scanning the tickets in yet Of course I have scanned in the tickets now[^But I've lost the bag of tickets before I scanned them all in!]...

Love / Hate @ The Marquee

Plus my first time (of many) of seeing Atom Seed. Happy new year! Pretty sure we slept at Waterloo station after this gig + got a train back in the morning. I think one of the other bands on the bill were New England, no-one of note afaik[^Just found a message on an AC/DC forum saying "Following week’s edition runs a small ad + a gig guide listing for the Marquee’s New Year’s Eve Party with Love/Hate headlining and a bill of Atom Seed, The Red Dogs, Dangerous, + LBH opening the event". LBH are Little Big Horn, the band the person who wrote the comment was interested in. Still not heard of any of the other bands apart from Atom Seed + Love/Hate. So no New England, unless the lineup changed later.].…

Iron Maiden @ Hammersmith Odeon

Was on a Nixdorf training course in Hounslow, turned up too late for support band Wolfsbane, + anyway we had no tickets, so got given some by someone outside, I am sure it was Tommy Vance. Apparently we saw Jonathon King there too.Pixies played this venue the following night, in the classic tradition of me being at the venue one day out from a really good gig.…

Thu Oct 18 1990


Some time about now, was on for two days again so this time (I also went the previous year) we got accomodation in student halls... I had a big pad somewhere of skect ecthes from a load of the artists, so where is it now? I had a Simon Bisley on my wall in a little frame, where's that? The only one I can still find is my Carlos Ezquerra Judge Dredd that I think he sent me in the post.I originally had it that I was here in 1990 and 1991, so on finding the Carlos Ezquerra sketch which is dated it reminds it must have been 1989 and 1990. found it:…

Iron Maiden @ Southampton Mayflower Theatre

Snuck in, + got thrown out again before the gig started. Tried to blag that we were writing it up for the student newspaper. Failed. Went home, having not seen the gig. Really wanted to see Wolfsbane who were supporting.Seems this was the first night of the tour. Saw them later at Hammersmith Odeon.…

Under Neath What @ Astoria

With Chunk + We Are Going To Eat You. I was in the queue for this gig and bought a fanzine off someone. Did I know Metallica were doing a secret gig just a few doors down at the Marquee club? Why on earth did I stay at the Astoria? Bah...…
