We ended up at the Feet First club at Camden Palace as they were having "Album Preview Launch" for The Cure's "Wish" album - their first album since the stunning "Distintegration" back in 1989.
Camden Palace was a favourite of mine for many years as every Tuesday they'd have a massive alternate/indie club night with a band on stage at around midnight. The bands could be a bit hit or miss - from established acts playing a lowkey secret warm-up gig to acts which were getting a lot of buzz in the music papers as the 'next breakthrough act' - which some were but many others ended up not being.
On this evening it was the turn of a Californaian band called Redd Kross - who I thought were bloody awful.
A whole bunch of us went along to this (because of The Cure preview) so shout outs to Martin, Michelle, Emily and Kim amongst others.
