8th December 2002. Eastside supported by The Meanwells. Market Tavern. Birmingham. Free.

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.

Rate 7 out of 10.

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.
