Hi Mel,

Yes,That's us!

Feel free to upload it

Sorry it's taking so long to get that stuff to you, Dave did me some Durango 95,Cosa Nostra etc but didnt include any track listing info so its gone back to him for update. I will post a CD of Nearly Band stuff this week including the original(and better) version of "Four Vagrants". Didn't know anyone had a copy of Underground Resistance LP. Mine's in a box in the attic somewhere.

Mick

hi ya mel,
i also remember bedlam choir,and the p,dogs,at rebbles in sheff.they were the first bands to play there for years.an il tell ya what,it was kickin.could,nt get a better line up.they were the most kickin bands about at that time.
ive seen most of the bands you,ve mentioned, if not them all,an theres none to touch these 2 bands in that error mate,but thats only my opinion.also choir did 2 or 3 covers.but one that sticks to mind was,(phantom of the opra)
maiden.it was spot on note for note.i used to go an see choir as much as i cud an p,dogs,but i used to catch them at take 2 more than anything as they used to be there more than any other bands in sheff.and they used to support sum great bands there as well vamp,shy,horse london,lisa dom,an on one acassion they supported the farm,but the farm pulled the gig,so bedlam choir headlined the gig.saw them at the pal,a in sheff supporting acid rain.that was a awesome gig,but they were miss treated by bad management,think they were signed to some company in burton on trent,an went to sweden to record an album but relieased a single e.p instead.then after cityhall that was the last i herd of them.sad sad sad.come back p,dogs an bedlam choir.an livean the music scene up in sheff much missed.

i was there and i agree!

it came about i think because plague dogs had just signed to a manager who persuaded rebels to put on local bands. he also spent 150 on an advert in the star, little realising that no-one in the audience could read!
