GIG 054: Ugle As Sin / Ship of Fools - The Marquee 04/06/90
Ugly As Sin were actually one of my favourite bands around this time. I used to play the Pain 7" on repeat at home, and it remains one of my favourite songs today. I've no idea what happened to them as they seemed to vanish after producing their first album "The Good The Bad & The Ugly" and I don't believe they really achieved any success at all, which was a real shame.

This was definetly one of my favourite gigs of 1990. They completely blew me away live and I'm so pleased I managed to catch them this one time (but quite sad it was never to be repeated).

Support came in the form of Ship of Fools (whom I'd seen earlier in the year as the opening act for And The Generals Ran Forever - GIG 049) who were once again pretty good.

In addition to seeing Ugly As Sin Mike and myself spotted that The Marquee was selling tickets for a gig later that week for a new American band we'd heard quite a bit about in Kerrang called 'The Black Crows'. We'd never actually heard anything by them but the music press was apparently going mad over them and as the tickets were only something like £4 or £5 we decided to take a punt and brought a couple. That'll be covered in the next entry (GIG 055) in a few days time.

Price: £3.00
