31 THE WOODENTOPS, Bath Moles Club, Thursday 29 August 1985

My first time at Bath Moles, a very small and pokey little place that we drove past a couple of times without noticing! The Woodentops, who became the first band I'd seen supporting then headlining (not counting Spear Of Destiny, last time out, as technically they "guested" on the 6-band "The Longest Day" bill), played a fast, furious and frantic set of rollercoaster rockabilly. Vocalist Rolo McGinty, whom we down the front looked down on, on the tiny stage (!) sported a "Bilko" t-shirt which made me want to hunt one down. I eventually did!
