The Meanwells were my old band Four Eyes minus me and probably all the better for it. Punky catchy tunes with a slight Pixies sensibility. A good live band even if their better gigs were still to come.

Eastside were / are a proper Brum Anarcho Crusty outfit that appear fuelled by cider and fun. The bass player had a broken leg in plaster but still soldiered on. One hilarious moment saw the mic fall and the broken legged bass player struggle to reach it. A choatic shambles… in a very good way.
