Riot In Cell Block No. 9

Ooh, how about some Dr Feelgood for Friday, with Wilko, Lee, Sparko and the Big Figure covering an old Lieber and Stoller song. Electric.

Riot In Cell Block No. 9

Friday Night Is… Wilko Johnson Is Playing In Sale Tonight Night

And I’m not going.

We’ve just stepped through the door fresh from barreling down the A19 and the A1(M) and the M62, with six washing machine loads to sort and all the rest. So while the guitarist from Dr Feelgood (song from way back in 1975 down below) is playing just a fifteen minute walk from my front door, I don’t think I’l be there. Probably sold out anyway.

Sale’s music venue is The Waterside, a small arts theatre. In the past I’ve either been away when there’s a rare appearance by anyone decent (The Earlies) or haven’t heard about it til the gig’s passed (Roddy Frame, Imelda May) due to their crap publicity department or couldn’t be arsed (Lloyd Cole). So… where’s my coat?
