Punk / metal bands from Sheff between 1986 - 1996

Recommended Posts

the longpigs bassist (simon i think) bought my bass amp from me when i lived on kelvin. he wheeled it along edith walk and was too scared to tell the kids not to take rides on it!

 

:hihi:

 

Ha ha, yeah, that doesn't surprise me! He had an old fridge freezer off me for nowt! Better not say any more, might reveal my identity! He sometimes doubles up as Santa at Meadowhell too.

me: "what you up to thesedays?"

 

crispin: "i'm packing in university. gonna form a band. we're gonna be famous."

 

me: "right."

the longpigs also supported U2 on a major stadium tour.

 

blammo became speedy and if i am right they appeared on the 1st national lottery show performing their 'almost' hit - boywonder

 

anyone remember a barnsley band called 'british racing green'? i used to see them regular in the late 90's. great band!

They were signed to their label "mother", i believe.

 

Alevans - you didn't used to live in Muswell Hill did you? Is This Morning the same as GMTV? I used to know someone who did the lights on GMTV is all.

that's just my point! :)

 

my other two failures in spotting pending fame:

 

scene: limit club 1987

 

me: "why do you have that tin foil stuff hanging around the stage?"

 

jarvis cocker: "'cos it looks better than nothing".

 

me (thinks): "you'll not get anywhere p...ing about like that!"

 

scene two: park hill flats 1997 watching "common people" video.

 

me (on own and not famous): "hmmmm i recognise that tin foil backdrop!"

 

:(

 

scene: surrey street 1993

 

dean honer (fan of my sampling work): "come round and record with me if you want, pete."

 

me: "yes okay."

 

scene two: studio somewhere, dean honer producing a britney spears track and buying a house in hathersage with the proceeds.

 

scene three: me living at parson cross wondering if i should've gone round dean's when i had the chance....

 

:hihi:
