Corrupted Morals (Strul #5)

When I was organising ‘Lethal Gospel’s 3rd European tour in 1989, I got in touch with Patrick Fredriksson who started organising shows in his hometown Gävle (Sweden). This was the first show he promoted. ‘No Means No’, ‘Fugazi’ and many … Continue reading

Generic (Kaboem #26)

I bet ‘Generic’ (from Newcastle/Leeds, UK) was the first of ‘Sned’s many bands I saw live (I don’t think ‘Blood Robots’ ever played outside the UK). My band played with them the first time they toured (with ‘Electro Hippies’; 87-06-28). … Continue reading
