Well, the C-86 era was definitely with us now! We booked The June Brides again. They had first played the previous December and now this fledgling indie scene was gathering some momentum. My band Go! Service had supported The June Brides at Dan Treacy‘s Room at the Top club in Chalk Farm, North London and we’d taken a trip to see them in Brightonin Gary’s old Triumph Herald. We sat shivering on the stoney beach before heading over to see them play the Escape. We invited them back to The Buzz Club.
They had a new drummer and I seem to remember that the back drop behind the stage fell on his head mid -set. Sorry mate! He carried on but did look a little miffed (understandably so really).
We used to go to Guildford University on a Sunday night where they had cool free gigs in the students union. We got chatting to a guy who went there one night when my band Go! Service were playing. He handed us a demo by The Desert Wolves . I liked it, so booked them for The Buzz Club.
