La's @ newcastle riverside 1995

Postby James » Tue May 13, 2003 11:43 pm

well i just came home delighted with a wonderful neon yellow picture poster from the La's last headline gig @ NEWCASTLE RIVERSIDE JAN 20TH 1995... the picture (strangely) is the 1988 lineup (sharrock/sutton) culled from an NME article... ''woodpecker cider and technic's audio equipment present...THE LA'S...no support on stage 10pm''... it's about A2 size portrait... a really nice find, and FREE!!!<br>
<br>
source i got it off works in the rehearsal rooms we use, he was a Riverside roadie for the gig (and, funnily enough, also lugged amp's and PA mixers for john power's early CAST when they gigged their debut Newcastle show a mere 4 days after the La's gig at the riverside!!!)... anyway, he remembers Lee was ''smashed'' on booze, and he almost fell out the door of the hired transit van the La's drove up in with their gear... heh heh<br>
<br>
he says the show was video'd on camcorder from side of stage, about 45mins worth in colour...so he's going to root about to see if he can find it for me... <!--EZCODE EMOTICON START :eek --><img src=http://www.ezboard.com/images/emoticons/eek.gif ALT=":eek"><!--EZCODE EMOTICON END--> <br>
<br>
fingers crossed...<br>

i don't know about australian; i was over here then, but yes it is the one you all seem to be describing. i was thinking of syl so he could put it up for everyone to see, but if he already has it then i don't mind who has it. i don't want money for it, skint as i am. (what did it go on ebay for?) perhaps someone can do a copy of something i haven't got that isn't available in the shops.

yeh im sure it's the aussie one, if i remember rightly it went for about £7 or something??? hmm... actually, bit cheeky of me asking for it, i'll wait to see if Syl DOES have it first before enquiring further!!! but if he doesn't need it, yeh i could arrange a trade or whatever... let me know what you decide to do...<br>

UK Tour 1991

Postby Anonymous » Thu May 15, 2003 8:32 am

I've got a little postcard for the UK tour of 1991. The first gig is the Belfast Limelight i think. They're all crouching down i think and Lee has his big mop head. Wouldn't mind tracking down more of these postcards for their tours, if they produced them.

well

james if anyone deserves the poster it's you. i look forward to visiting your la's rock cafe in the near future! <br>
<br>
email me your address and i'll send the zutons on xfm tape. <br>
<br>
it's only one track, and a crappy recording on a 10 minute free cassette i just found (i taped over one side of some group called don, where are they now?) but it's great to hear the zutons lovely scouse accents etc.

I got the '91 UK tour poster with Lee Mavers' huge hair do from http://www.pushposters.com about a year ago for a couple of quid...it's worth checking to see if they've still got some, if anyone wants one.
