With a new guitarist (supposedly), how likely will there be a warm up gig under a different moniker, like the previous incarnations of Speed Kings and Near Meth Experience? Does anyone remember how those warm-up gigs were announced?

I think it was very much reserved for the "inner circle" - the shaven-headed, sleeveless t-shirt brigade.
Oh, and possible a few of the bikers who "get rough with it" that Eldritch so likes.

Bitter, moi? Wink

Rumour and word of mouth, basically.
Though I guess you can check the local listings for a band whose name is a word play on amphetamines...

Well, both previous NME gigs have been 'announced' on the day on the Dominion list, so if it's going to happen, I guess we'll find out there. Unfortunately word-of-mouth is as likely. I 'found out' about the Fenton 96 gig the day after, ie. the day my ex listened to her answer-machine messages to hear a near-frantic friend telling her to ring me on the day of the gig to get my ass over to the Fenton 'as a matter of life and death'. Evil or Very Mad At the time I lived exactly 30 seconds walk from the Fenton. Rolling Eyes Evil or Very Mad

But yeah, theoretically they may choose to do 'something' to give Robogeezer a warm-up.

Keep your eye on the Brighton gig scene. I gather Tom Baker is there, which is as good a reason as any to visit the city.

Do you reckon such a gig might be anounced early enough for mainlanders to join the party?

Thanks. I figured that someone around here might offer some insight. It wasn't me...

So do we have to look out for a band playing in Brighton called something like "Doctor & The Jelly Babies" then?
And a Cramps cover version would definitely be interesting.

Will anybody of you who's keeping an eye on the Brighton live scene be so kind as to warn the mainland if anything suspicious is coming up?

No sign of anything yet, unless they're playing under the name of "Anal Beard" in a small grotty room above the Hobgoblin.
