Lovely hot summers night at the Barley Sheaf in Liskeard. We started with ‘Tommy Gun’ by The Clash ( video below )
After this initial burst of power we quickly ran out of energy and air, forcing Cooky to remove his precious leather jacket and proclaim Fxxx it’s hot here.
Normal service was resumed a few songs in. This was the first gig at which we played ‘Rat Trap’ by The Boomtown Rats. Funny how the lines “..get out of school, work in some factory..” sound strangely optimistic now. There’s no factories left. Should read “..get out of school, do nothing..”
