267 ADORABLE, Fin, Kinky Machine, Windsor Old Trout, Saturday 30 April 1994


Called in on this gig on the way home from London, after Swindon Town's splendid away win at QPR - indeed their only one in the Premiership - so we were in the mood to celebrate! Had some munchies in Windsor, then sat outside the Old Trout with the posse getting increasingly beered up!

Clive arrived at 8.30 and we went into the venue, in time for surprise support Kinky Machine! Clive and I had a jig to their shiny pop stuff, particularly enjoying older numbers "Shockaholic", "Swivelhead" and near hit single "Supernatural Giver", and tapped our feet to the newer, more thoughtful and considered material. A fine set. Fin were up next; they were a bit Suede-ish with their glam pop, and were, "a little inappropriate," according to Clive. Not sure what he meant by that, as by then I was sliding under the table thanks to the earlier over-celebrating! Whoops!

So headliners Adorable passed by in an alcoholic haze somewhat, as I was simply too drunk to enjoy them. D'oh! I recall a rather splendid "Sunshine Smile" and some good new numbers, but next time I'll make sure I stay sober!

(Of course, there wasn't to be a next time, as Adorable split up rather messily onstage in Europe shortly after this gig. Lesson learned. D'oh!)
