15 PSYCHEDELIC FURS, The Armoury Show, London Hammersmith Odeon, Friday 13 July 1984

Took a day off and made a day of it, shopping for comics in London with mad Doug, then trying for ages to find his cousin's house in Shepherd's Bush as he'd bought the tickets!

The Armoury Show were an excellent if unexpected heroic rock support; former Skids vocalist Richard Jobson sported an unusual haircut and, as per his legend, was a great dervish dancer! As also was Psychedelic Furs vocalist Richard Butler; after a superb set of shiny, slightly sleazy Bowie-esque post punk rock based largely on current album "Mirror Moves", an awesome encore of "India" capped a splendid performance from a seriously proficient and mighty "live" band!
