Don't think there's any antipathy towards the band just maybe the self appointed keepers of a flame (war) that were nowhere near Leeds in 1985.

Re: Andrew Eldritch Biography....

From Quiff: ...My mate watched the NMA DVD of their Astoria show and at the end there's an interview with Justin which alludes to him living near Thornbury Gloucestershire. I haven't seen it but I'd find it hard to believe that Justin lives down south and leave his beloved Bradford. There is of cou...

Nah, I wouldn't have called it "dark". It's certainly got a good line in ghoulish good humour, and presses all the right buttons for that in a very deliberate (but enjoyable despite that) manner, but it ain't dark. Hard to imagine the Sabs (of that time point) doing anything deliberately. Just the ...

RAWK is also the Red and White Kop forum which professes undying love for the glorious institution that is Liverpool Football Club.

As Mr Eldritch is a follower of they who cannot be named in Salford, then maybe he would not approve.

Yeah 'Gimme' was groovy and probably a nod back to the early days of the Phono in Leeds. Loved the versions of 'Comfortably Numb' too, but that is maybe the old paisley shirt and bangle hippy in me coming out.

Have seen all phases of TSOM since 1982 and have loved gigs and been disappointed by gigs in equql measure.

In my more 'fueled' moments I have been known to comment that The m*****n became the live band that TSOM could have been as they very rarely disappoint in concert.

Renamed to "The Duchess of York" in 1986 to commemorate the wedding of Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson, I believe. Not quite mate. The place was known as the Robin Hood for many years and it was a pretty dodgy place to be honest. The name changed in 1985/6 to the Marquee. This name didn't last lon...
