The first I heard of the band was at the Soho Roses penultimate gig in Stevenage in June 89 when Julian said he was joining Ginger's new band with CJ.

The first time they were a four-piece was at Rock CIty on Good Friday 91.


Just out of sheer curiousity, where did they play in Stevenage?

Judging by the visits I've had to make to Stevenage over the years, my educated guess is... on a roundabout, as the place is made of them.

I think it was called Bowes Lion House. It was kind of a community centre with a venue in one side and then another area with lots of pool tables.

Ha - is that place still there? It was one of the first gigs I ever played.

I have no idea. My one and only visit to Stevenage.

Many would say one visit to Stevenage is enough - although to be fair my gig there was a bit of a highlight for my first band.

Yeah - Bowes Lion is still there - it's more of a youth club than a venue. And Dark Lord, couldn't agree with you more - one visit is more than enough.....!

The band who supported Soho roses that night in Stevenage, and then by chance were on the same bill as The Wildhearts at that Rock City gig in '91 are themselves celebrating their 30th anniversary this year, funny old world!
