I didn’t get to post this last night as it was pretty late by the time we got home. Dee and I had been to see The Stranglers, who were playing much of their album Black and White on this tour. Regular readers will know that I’m a big fan of JJ Burnel, bassist with The Stranglers, and he didn’t disappoint last night. I can honestly say that it’s the first time I’ve felt my nostrils close due to the bass vibrations! It was weird but awesome at the same time, and only for about 30 seconds during one song.
The support act was The Alarm, who I’d last seen back in the 80s. Mike Peters, their lead singer, was still flying the flag and going strong. I’d seen him sing with Big Country several years ago, but it was good to see him belting out his own tunes again.
By a weird coincidence, the last time I saw SLF in Glasgow before last week was in 1983: The Alarm were their support that night. Don’t you just love this circular world we live in? :O)
