Just been asked to support 999 in November, which makes up for my own huge disappointment at the Exploited cancelling their appearance with us at North East Calling in September. :mrgreen:

So what does Marconi playing the mamba mean? "Marconi" is referring to the radio itself. It plays a deadly snake. The snake - the mamba - is slithering from the speakers. Ready to kill greedy corporations. Ready to free the world of all that is evil, and to leave behind only the youthful idealism encompassed by the tenets of rock and roll.

I was surprised at only 2 line up changes in 40 years. Most bands of their ilk have had about 50 members.

Mark E. Smith can do that between Fall albums.

Cheers folks, and I've just remembered their drummer was in the Clash!

Ask him if Joe and Mick ever talked about how they were going to betray their fans.

Pablo! That's exciting.
Look, you have to establish context for these things. And I maintain that unless you appreciate the Fall of Constantinople, the Great Fire of London, and Mickey Mantle's fatalist alcoholism, live Freddy makes no sense. If you want to half-ass it, fine, go call Simon Schama to do the appendix.

I'll no doubt be pestering him.

999 are great 'bout time they put out a new studio album though. Nothing since 2007's Death in Soho. Enjoy Heston have a blast!

Here's their '98 album "Takeover" which is great.
