Fat White Family @Boiler Shop

23rd November 2019


A fantastic show from the Fat White's but a tough night for the venue security, with Lias diving straight into the crowd from the first few bars of show opener 'Auto Neutron'
This was definitely my best gig of 2019 with my personal highlights being 'When I Leave' 'Feet' and 'Is it Raining in Your Mouth?'

Bizzaro 30

The Wedding Present
Newcastle Academy
 
I saw the original Bizarro tour at The Mayfair when the album was released in 1989. In 2010 I attended a 21st Anniversary tour  at the Academy and now in 2019, a 30 year tour at the same venue.
As always, a cracking set from the Weddoes which included the full album, some old favourites and a couple of new songs. My personal highlights were 'Don't Touch That Dial','Deer Caught in the Headlights' and 'Bewitched'
