40 ECHO AND THE BUNNYMEN, THE WOODENTOPS, Gloucester Leisure Centre, Friday 13 December 1985

A potentially brilliant double-header turned out exactly as planned, with both bands excelling; The Woodentops played a superb set of their frantic and fast studenty strumalong rockabilly pop, with "Last Time" particularly memorable, and The Bunnymen, plugging slightly disappointing new eponymous album, were nevertheless their usual glacially cool selves. Great stuff; spoke briefly to Alice from the Woodentops on the way out of the gig.

  1. my second gig!

    but, as i remember it this was the "Songs To Learn And Sing" tour - the self titled lp wasn't released until '87
