|The Shock Of the Nouveux|
the band's bassist, looking
suitably androgynous (as did most of
the blokes who were there that evening).
The Toyah-alike did Nico-esque vocals....
the band's guitarist gives a
icy-cool pose (as is required, when you're
found to be on that New Romantic tip).
Mo' pouting from the Toyah-alike.
the first act had departed, the headliners
came on and did their stuff. This is their keyboard
player (and club night promoter - Gary Numan
was obviously a major role model when he
was at a most impressionable age, it seems).
vocalist snapped during a
rare moment that he was still (according to
Michelle, he worked in a greengrocers round
the corner from where she lives. Oh well,
Will & Gareth had to start somewhere)....
giving it some soul later on (he also
did an impromptu cover of The Sisters
Of Mercy's 'Lucretia [My Reflection]', with
just the bassist for musical accompaniment).
last pic features the band's guitarist going
into shoegazer mode (and enjoying
from how long he
held this pose during a cover
of The Velvet Underground's 'Waiting
Man'). When they came off stage, the house d.j. playing futurist classics aplenty, although Kylie's 'Can't Get You Outta My Head' had various Nouveux-types doing moves on the dancefloor I'm sure would bring a tear to Tik & Tok's eyes (remember them,
if you dare admit it?). Oh well, that's 'nuff nostalgia from me, trigger any latent memories for you, then?
