Kraftwerk in the early 80's...I was blown away!!

I was there at that one. Spectacular.

Flock of Seagulls were on fire,

Saw them there supporting Simple Minds.

I think I saw Simple Minds at Nottm Uni,the first album was so fresh!!

Kraftwerk and Tangerine Dream educated me towards other music.

As I have said on other threads, Kraftwerk and Tangerine Dream along with Jean Michel Jarre gave me my life long love of electronic music. Everyone from ABC to Ultravox have been influenced by them.

I like both versions ian. I saw John Foxx a couple of years ago at the Royal Concert Hall when he was supporting OMD...still great in my eyes.

Half Man Half Biscuit...now they were Nottm regulars..from Norwich i think.

The only group to pay homage in a song to a snooker referee.

'The Len Ganley Stance'.

Pity the crystal set is playing up.

Good job I'm off today woke up with a banger, shouldn't drink on empty head. Not been to Rescue Rooms for a gig for a while, it was packed like sardines in a tin, bumped into loads I'd not seen for years, the crowd loved Max Splodge 30 years & he still can't play that trumpet, Buster Bloodvessel looked fit & well down to about 13/14 stone, had all the boneheads stomping.

 

Barmaid made me chuckle, it was my round some craft IPA on draft, she pre-warned me it was & £7 a pint! ....... How much?
