I love this forum, purely for nostalgia value! :D

 

I can't believe people still remember slopdosh.. :loopy::gag::hihi: I still cringe when I hear the name (I guess certain experiences stick in my memory...) :P

 

I read your list Pete, there's loads of names on there I remember. Does anyone have any pics lying around from those days? I loved the old punk days but sadly most of it is committed to memory as I never carried a camera back then.

 

I often read these posts and wonder how many old friends are hiding behind these nicks...

 

Thanks for the memories ;)

i was in most of them for about three or four years, sometimes three at once, although ogi mcgrath of dig vis drill says i'm a "band slut"

i joined them end of 1988, did one gig at the lower refec with "slammer" (feb 89 i think) then i left as bassist ben moved to london and wanted us to rehearse there!

slbc i have a 12"

 

saw slbc play their final gig last week, they are still recording

i even unofficially played for the bland once too! their drummer fell off his stool at the maze bar...to p..ssed to drum, so it had been pre-arranged that i would take over on the night!
