Gigography of Paul Clarke for 1998

PaulyGigography ≫ 1998

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!]...

Steve Coogan @ The Lyceum Theatre

Fairly bland sets of Tony Ferrino + possibly Alan Partridge, so warm up came from newcomer Simon Pegg. Whatever happened to him?…

Mon Oct 05 1998

The Beta Band @ Electric Ballroom

Tonight's venue is crammed with indie's brightest and best, all happily expectantaccording to the review in the Independent, that's me in particular to which they were referring...Part of a rescheduled UK tour. I'm sure I saw The Beta Band before this at the Water Rats with Gaz, + that it was their first show, so that is the year before.…

Wed Jun 24 1998

Jack @ The Borderline

Players Theatre, Charing Cross.My first time of seeing Jack? Think we got these tickets "on return", ie the gig was sold out so the venue called me back when some where returned. Or I kept calling the venue... Had met "the band" before this at Midweeker, an indie clubnight at The Borderline in Soho with Clare. Two suspicious fellows were chatting up my wife to be and her friend and I felt obliged to intervene. They turned out to be the singer + guitarist of Jack, one of my favourite bands of the time + all ideas of chivalry went out the window.…

Primal Scream @ Brixton Academy

Some sort of all nighter, we didn't stay the pace. Was this the first gig with Kevin Shields?

The Dandy Warhols @ The Garage

Is this their first UK gig? I think this is the last time the keyboardist took her top off on stage.

Thu Feb 12 1998

Lilys @ The Garage

They did a Levi ad I think, we went for the support Hooverdam. Not sure why I've put this as Highbury Garage I think the gig was in Hoxton, so can find no reference online...…

NME Brats Spiritualized @ Astoria

Spiritualized, Crystal Method, Jonathan Fire Eater, Dawn Of The Replicants. Not my sort of lineup at all, + I don't remember the gig. I do remember waiting in Spiritualized's hotel for their main man to come out and be interviewed for NME. I was doing some sort of web support, think I'd a laptop and it would be uploaded to right away. I supose we went on to the gig after this, though quite late.…

Wed Jan 21 1998

I was at a lot more than this this year I'm sure. These are prime "get in free" years in [London](/wiki/#london), we were out several nights of the week.
