GIG 015: Dawn After Dark / Victims of Pestilence / Creaming Jesus - Marquee 24/05/89
I'd seen Dawn After Dark a few months previously supporting Rose of Avalanche and they had obviously impressed enough to head over to the Marquee to catch them again. I'm very glad I did as the gig introduced me to a band which I ended up seeing a load of times and who always put n a blinding performance - Creaming Jesus.

Creaming Jesus were the first band on the stage (I think this was the only time I saw them supporting as they soon became a headline act in their own right) and were fantastic. A blend of goth and thrash in many ways, but they didn't take themselves seriously (they have great covers of The Cures 'The Forest' and The Sisters of Mercys 'Temple of Love') and had some really great tracks.

In contrast the middle band, Victims of Pestilence, were less than unremarkable, and Dawn After Dark whilst still playing an excellent set still came second best on the night.

Price: £4.50
