GIG 082: Vision (something - possibly Visionfield?) - The Dandy Lion, Barnet 07/05/91

GIG 082: Vision (something - possibly Visionfield?) - The Dandy Lion, Barnet 07/05/91

This was another of The Dandy Lion's student/indie nights in Barnet. Attracting a mix of local college kids and the alternative, metal, indie crowd which often dominated The Green Man and Moon & Sixpence at the far end of the high street away from the more mainstream pubs.

I have absolutely no idea what the band was like - apart from having them as 'ok' and didn't sadly even get their full name. All I've got written down is Vision (something pos. field), so I'll call them Visionfield for lack of actually knowing.

GIG 083: King's X / Mindfunk - Town & County Club 10/05/91

GIG 083: King's X / Mindfunk - Town & County Club 10/05/91

I remember Fabio taking me down to see King's X on the back on his bike... and anyone who knows Fabio knows the really nice machines he used to own :p

King's X were a mixture of rock and funk - there were a few bands dabbling with the sound around then with Living Color being another fairly big name at the time.

The support band was called Mindfunk who were pretty decent and were on tour promoting their debut album. Mindfunk were a curious band as they had members from bands such as Ministry, Celtic Frost, Nirvana and Soundgarden in it - but didn't sound anything like any of them - preferring more of a straight forward rock approach.

King's X were good fun. The lead singer was charismatic and carried the audience with him. Fun evening :)

Price: £8.00

GIG 084: Zeister - The Dandy Lion, Barnet - 13/05/91

GIG 084: Zeister - The Dandy Lion, Barnet - 13/05/91

...and back once more to our little Monday night taste of alternative music in the high street. Another student/indie night, another band, and lots more dancing to Jane's Addiction, Mudhoney, Faith No More, etc :p

No idea what the band were like, but from my brief notes the seemed better than many of the others that graced the Dandy Lions stage on Monday nights.
