The Macc Lads

Recommended Posts

Sad I wasn't there, but in the end I decided to watch Half Man Half Biscuit in Exeter instead, so not all bad.

Possibly the only group to include a reference to Gerry Gow in one of their songs*

If you have a two pence piece, you could go and phone someone who cares.

Bit dirtier than HMHB. Nigel Blackwell mainly deals in humorous whimsy and pathos.

HMHB definitely one to tick-off at some point.

I've seen some great gigs there, From Martha Reeves to the Damned , from the Strypes to the Icicle Works and the Buzzcocks , and I've never liked it as a venue.

Ian McNabb still tours with the Icicle Works set, saw him year or so ago. Brilliant and plays about 2 hours or more, very worth catching if you get a chance.

Loudest gig I ever saw was at the Bierkeller. The Blues Band with Paul Jones on vocals. I couldn`t hear for a week.

Saw some cracking stuff there. All About Eve and The Men They Couldn`t Hang were particularly memorable.

Made me think of some of the Bierkeller gigs I attended: Dr and The Medics when there was a live broadcast by Whistle Test, The Chameleons, KRS-1/Boogie Down Productions, Fuzz Box/Ted Chippington. Sure there must be others.

The Macc Lads were the soundtrack to numerous away games, during the 89-90 promotion season.

Made me think of some of our away trips. A mate used to drive a lot, every trip started with "that's life" album by Sham.

Some good tapes and loads of booze!

Stopping under motorway bridges, for a piss. Couldn't do that now.

For any youth that might be wondering what the dickens this thread is all about, the band in question reformed.

This is a gig from last year.

WARNING. They do use words your mother wouldn't want you to use.

I have a lot of respect for any lyricist who comes up with rhymes like "Vauxhall Viva" and "beaver" or "George Michael" and "menstrual cycle".
