Unfortunately I can't make it to the gig early enough to see the first two bands Riot In Paradise and Husband'n'Knives. After leaving my broken camera at home last time to try out the camera in my new phone (with less than good results) I managed to get a few pictures out of my knackered camera tonight before giving it up as a bad job.
Healthy Junkies have built up a following by gigging regularly and they always have people at their shows these days - going to show that hard work can start to pay off if you stick at it. It helps that they are also a good band of course. But changes are afoot in the Healthy Junkies camp and half the band seems to have changed since I last saw them a few weeks ago. That time they had a completely different rhythm section - now the whole rhythm section has changed again! The drummer at this gig is a full on metal drummer and he's really good. Enquiries later reveal he is actually the band's original drummer. New on bass for this gig is Dave Renegade - playing rhythm guitar in the Gasoline Queens until very recently.
Next up we have a band with a touch of star quality - some of whom may be familiar to you even if you aren't a regular reader of my blog. Fronted by Danny Fury - a man who has 'rock star' written all over him and has played with Lords Of The New Church and Dogs D'Amour among others - and last time I saw him he was playing drums with Healthy Junkies! Bassist Vera Wild can also be seen playing with Jelly while you may recognise rhythm guitarist Dave Tregunna from Sham 69, Lords Of The New Church, Dogs D'Amour or Cherry Bombz among others - although he is normally seen playing bass.
