14 good years in the bathroom, baby

The last time I went to see The Wonder Stuff was at Preston Guild Hall in the summer of 1990. Me, my sister, her boyfriend and my girlfriend. Then we drove back to Manchester in a Mini. Going to see the Stuffies again tonight is probably why I dreamt about Adele last night……

Excellent concert. Miles Hunt still has the attitude. Best advice of the night was how to avoid encores at “Coldplay, Snowplough…. all those young fuckers pretending to be miserable old men” gigs- you just don’t get the foot stamping, hand clapping rhythm going. The material off the new album- Escape from Rubbish Island fit right in and, because there’s no-one else doing anything quite like Stuffy stuff, sounded fresh.
