I did a full circuit of the circle line as an opportunity for a sit down amid a day of comic shopping.
I did 21 gigs in 21 days around this period, so where are the others? Most of them were rubbish I'm sure but I remember seeing Tripping Daisy at least twice, in Southampton and Manchester, plus MN8, The Wurzels and I think Underworld at this time.
I went to this one, more from this year in my gig history for 1996. Part of a list of every gig I went to from 1987 to 2021. A natural step from my Best Gigs Ever blog post. Yeah I know it's a bit geeky, let's let that go though, I'm having fun remembering these things.
Other gigs at Mean Fiddler I have been to are Goldie Lookin' Chain ('04), Turbonegro (2003), David Devant + his Spirit Wife ('01), Ash ('01), Phoenix ('01), The Bluetones ('00), David Devant and his Spirit Wife (1999), David Devant + his Spirit Wife (1997), The Fall ('97), Placebo (1997), Placebo ('96), Presidents of the United States of America ('96), Tiger (1996), Super Furry Animals (1996), PJ Harvey ('96), The Wannadies ('96), 60ft Dolls ('96)
