Well, no I wasn't actually. Had lost interest by then. But now, as I gaze through the haze at the silhouettes on my Wake DVD and wonder ... where are they now?

A Tuesday in June in 1985? I was probably supposed to be revising for my 'O'-levels. (I took Maths and RE a year early in '85.)

What I was actually doing? Anyone's guess Laughing Although it may have involved a ZX Spectrum.

Yeah? I was a little worse for wear, too much drink and traveling by overnight bus from Glasgow didn't exactly help...but I always thought the RAH was amazing...altho I couldn't see much, and dry ice dehydrates me...I guess it was the friends I was with who also traveled down from Edinburgh via Glasgow that made it more memorable

to be honest, i'd rather have seen them early/mid 84 (with the full line up) than the 85 RHA gig (much as i love the wake vid Cool).

i've read a few comments on here where people have said by the RHA they were a pale (!) shadow of their former selves...

i seem to remember ramone in particular saying they had lost a lot of the bite they had during the 83/84 tours Neutral

I'll Shut. The. Fuck. Up. then...

You don't really need to know that I first saw them in 83 in Glasgow at Nightmoves...and you can just about make me out in the audience, during Lights, being rather drunk.

I didn't really notice much difference with the overall general sound from the early UK tour in 85 to the RAH gig probably because I don't travel well on buses, and speed and alcohol kinda numbs the senses some what

So it's like the age old answer to what the 1960's were like? If you can remember it, you weren't really there! Wink Mr. Green

I woulda been 14 exactly (the gig was on my birthday) but I had no idea who the Sisters were at the time. Anyway I was probably too busy lusting after that blonde girl on the schoolbus to care.

Hmmm... May (?) 84, Leeds wasn't all that according to my mates who saw it. I was in France at the time, kicking myself. When I finally got to see them in October of the same year, said mates didn't feel inclined to join me. Sad Have to say I unsderstood why afterwards. Emma was by far the best surprise. Still is.

Good evening to you all. I've lurked about here for a while and whilst some of you try to be as aloof as Our fearless leader! I can tell you all like kittens and horlicks... all the same, please be gentle with me, it's my first time.
I was at the Albert Hall and my colleagues and I had a wonderful time. We were sat soaking up some rays and cider on the Albert Memorial when someone shouted from across the road "Oi! They're going on now!" or words to that effect so we hoofed it across the road. We made it just in time to hear the opening bars of FALAA and for me, being a fat bastard, to have someone clamber onto my shoulders. My overbearing memory of this gig is of the smell of a drycleaners caused by someone, who might or might not have been the Jo immortalised in the "Jo's So Mean To Josephine" song, spilling a medicine bottle of poppers onto the floor. The ticker tape was nice too. We knew beforehand that the band weren't getting on with each other but that didn't seem to dampen our spirits too much...... I think Killing Joke were playing soon as well as The Chameleons...... which was nice. I'm glad I went as this was the last time I saw The Sisters (until 090409 which lasted about three songs for me) and to think I nearly blew this gig out to go fishing. Top day out.
