GIG 094: New Model Army / Joolz / Sunshot - Brixton Academy - 19/12/91

GIG 094: New Model Army / Joolz / Sunshot - Brixton Academy - 19/12/91

After seeing New Model Army for the first time in the open air supporting The Mission during the summer (GIG 087) this was my first chance to catch them headlining their own show.

The show had an absolutely fantastic line-up too - with Joolz and Sunshot making it a brilliant evening. NMA themselves were fantastic - in fact I think they are amongst the very short list of bands that I can honestly say have never been anything less than really enjoyable every time I've seen them. There was, and still is, something about their concerts that just picks me up and carries me effortlessly along for the night and keeps me buzzing for days afterwards.

Price: £8.50

GIG 095 : ? - The Dandy Lion 03/02/92
GIG 096: Rib - The Dandy Lion 10/02/92


Typical Monday 'students' night at The Dandy Lion on Barnet High Street. I haven;t got a clue who the band on the 3rd February was (so they must have made an impression!) and Rib on the 10th were pretty poor but atleast got a namecheck in my diary!

I do know that we had great company on both nights though with the likes of Dawn, Alex, Nick, Julie, Mark, Katrina, Lucy, Steve, etc all there.

The Dandy Lion's Monday nights were always more about the company, mucking around and dancing than the bands in anycase, so I'm really not surprised that I don't remember more of them and that most of the bands that played there were fairly poor.
