76 THE WEATHER PROPHETS, Happy Mondays, Bristol Bierkeller, Monday 18 May 1987

Drove a couple of Thompsons - no relations to each other - down for this one. The Bierkeller is good for my pool game, as I played 6 games and won all 6!

Support The Happy Mondays were atrocious, but the Weather Prophets more than made up for it with a deliciously laid-back set of Byrds-like jangly, slightly countrified rock. Mainly promoting new LP "Mayflower" but strangely omitting current single "She Comes From The Rain", this was however a fine slice of thoughtful guitar pop.
