Toy Dolls are great fun live. Saw them at the Garage in Glasgow about 10 years ago. I'll need to catch them again some day.
Saw them in a place that was more like a private gig it was like a livingroom with a big fireplace .they played in the corner the place had three different levels to it oh those mushroom dinners dont half play havoc with the mind šŸ¤Ŗ

They say you always remember your first o er .the first concert I attended was ultravox at Grangemouth town hall who where supported by a young simple minds ,as a young sixteen year old a was blown away by the noise and excitement.
Seen the cure in Glasgow and missed the build up because of the fa cup final replay was on and I wanted to see the game Spurs v man city

Also seen the stranglers at the Apollo that was awesome great music and a few fights what's not to like šŸ˜€

Some good memories on this thread. I liked the Joshua Tree U2 at Murrayfield supported by the Pogues, Kansas at Hammersmith Odeon back in the late 70s, supported by Jim Capaldi and the Contenders. My fav was a surprise, by an old Proffessor who was near passing away, passionate CND campaigner, had an old radio in his room set on classic FM, hissing and cracking, I made the mistake of trying to get a better reception while Mario Lanza was singing, I'll walk with God, I said that was my dads favourite " mine too" he said and sang it to me word for word in the most beautiful voice I've heard. That is still my fav performance.

That first Specials gig in Glasgow when they reformed was unreal, New Order gigs always been great too, honourable mention to James Brown, Lou Reed, Roy Ayers, Marlena Shaw, Michael Marra and also the big dance acts in the 90s like Orbital, Leftfield, Chemical Bros, Prodigy etc.

I do miss going out to gigs, last one was Jon Hopkins at Usher Hall in March ( huns lost at home to Hamilton that night )

I enjoyed the Tarlair music festival mid nineties, set in a salty open air pool in a cove near Banff. Magnum, Fish, The Party Boys ( connected to the sensational Alex Harvey band I believe? Big G? Jethro Tull. Iain Anderson quoted as saying " I've never played a gig in such a beautiful setting. Froze in the tent later that night, nothing to do with drinking pales of cider. Teehee.

The Sensational Party Boys were the SAHB without Alex who died a decade earlier. The same guys before Alex were called Tear Gas, who I saw in a community centre in Dalkeith, 1970/71. The following year they joined Alex to form SAHB and by Christ they were.

Thanks G, new you would know. Alex Harvey was a showman, destined to burn out. These guys never got to rest.
