Gigography of Paul Clarke for 1990

Gigography 1990

Getting there with my gigography now, all the gigs I was at, from '87 up to about now. A natural progression 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, + a box of old concert tickets + stuff from Mum and Dad's loft. Also got lots of gaps regarding bands seen at festivals, they'll probably 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 and 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 the tickets now...

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…

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…

UKCAC 90 @ ULU

Was on for two days. Instead of getting a hotel overnight we went to all night cinema at The Scala (when it was still a cinema) and saw Akira, Heavy Metal, Fritz The Cat, Swamp Thing and probably more... I got lots of sketches of 2000ad characters from artists like Carlos Ezquerra and Ron Smith at this one + bought loads of rubbish…

Iron Maiden @ Mayflower Theatre

Snuck in, and 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…

Under Neath What @ Astoria

With Chunk + We Are Going To Eat You. I was in the queue for this gig + 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?…
