Deserved obscurity. More to the point, whatever happened to Chou Pahrot?



The second single mentiones in the Simple Minds blurb would have been Chelsea Girl which was magnificent.

If only fate had been different and Chou pahrot made it massive and Simple Minds faded into obscurity...

Quite a famous moment from a Scottish gig.Did you know that Ballroom Blitz was written about the Grand Hall of the Palace Theatre in Kilmarnock,after the band were forced off stage by a barrage of bottles?!

Ta.

I like how it looks like they didn't bother switching on the mic for the backing vocals until halfway through.

Jack McLaughlin, a pirate DJ in the 1960s, meets some of the era's musical survivors to find out just how swinging Scotland was at the time. Jack talks to Graham Knight, who joined Dean Ford and The Gaylords in 1964, a popular group that gained international recognition after they changed their name to Marmalade.

I've seen a few cracking gigs in Glasgow - pre glam Mott The Hoople with Nazareth as support at the (then) newly refurbished Kelvin Hall. It was the first rock concert (1971?) at the venue and the staff didn't know what hit them. Naz brought about 5 coach loads from Dunfermline and most of them invaded the stage several times. Once Mott came on, there was the usual surge down to the mosh pit, and every time it happened the band had to stop playing and ask everyone to sit down or the hall management would cut of the power to the stage. This happened around 7 times 'til Ian Hunter said "fuck 'em, let 'em try". A wonderful night made better by The Evening Citizen's (my employer) music correspondent, Martin Peters, seeing me and my mate and getting us backstage to meet the band.

I graduated to being a regular at Burns' Howf and fondly remember Creed (check Eddie Houston's MySpace), Dinah Moe Hum, Foxy, Cava, Whisky Joe (with Maggie Reilly), Stiltz, who's singer Hammy used to do a wee cabaret stint at the Ivanhoe Hotel with Jimmy McCulloch on Sundays, and most of all, Gasoline Alley who were by far the best band I've ever seen in a pub. Gasoline's Jerry Eadie is still plying his trade in Chicago and his brother told me that John, the bass player went out for his recent wedding and that they played a few old G.A. songs after all those years.

Blue never get much of a mention but their début album was great and they were great fun live. I saw them at the Q. M. and at the Apollo supporting Sir Fat Reg.

I saw Horslips at the Q.M. - one of the best live bands I ever saw.

Frankie Miller - great live, I've seen him at The City Halls, The Apollo, and The Garage. At the Apollo, I was there with a bunch of guys from my dad's pub in Abercrombie St., all mates of Frankie's. He drank in the Treble quite a lot, but always during the day when I was at work, so I never met him. Anyway, he introduced Take You Down The Honky Tonk thus " I started writing this song in Beverly Hills and finished it in Abercrombie Street". What a lovely moment.

I'm sure I've seen more, but my memory's not what it was.

I've looked out this wee link - http://www.rockingscots.co.uk/ and of course, I've seen a lot of the bands mentioned here. Particularly Beggars Opera and the Dream Police, who were fantastic live.

I've seen someone taking a pop at Christian for doing pantomime, I saw The Chris McLure Section when they were a hot young band and they ROCKED. Chris does what he has to to earn a crust but he's still much more rock 'n' roll than the likes of Jagger, Macca etc., who accept knighthoods *spits in disgust*

'It was the only place I was ever booed on to the stage' - B.A. Robertson on The Apollo.
There was also the club upstairs at The Apollo - 'Satellite City', which Orange Juice wrote a song about.

Anyone remember Disco Harry who ran the Silver Thread in Paisley?
