63 THE MEN THEY COULDN'T HANG, The Company, Bristol Bierkeller, Thursday 20 November 1986

My hopes were high for this one after the Men had produced my favourite LP of 1986 in "How Green Is The Valley", a much more consistent album than their predecessor, whilst still full of their catchy, singalong folky rock. We were not to be disappointed; their set, following a dull support, was excellent, opening with the chiming "Gold Rush" and culminating in a raucous, singalong "Green Fields Of France" and a blast through the Undertones' "Teenage Kicks". A drunken, beery and brilliantly bawdy night!
