The Never Ending Jukebox Track Three

Probably my favourite 'local' venue ever.

Fantastic times for a young music fan prepared to give anything a go.

Punk just blew me away.

Within a few weeks of going to the Bowl regularly I had The Clash next to Crosby Stills Nash and Young and The Stranglers next to Steely Dan in my record collection.
My first ever gig was at the Village Bowl for the Stranglers in September '78.
The support was the Skids and so they were the first band proper I ever saw.
This was the song that got us all going Albert Tatlock.

 
I see radio 2 are now playing 'appropriate' music in 'tribute' to Phil the Greek all bloody weekend, here's some suggestions from me.

The Thin White Duke.

Sir Duke, if you're watching this Phil; that's what the inside of a tube train looks like.


and best of all, the Asbury Dukes.


Wonderful live, especially if you couldn't get Springsteen tickets. :grinning:
 
The Village Bowl the place to go to if you liked Punk Rock.
I went there twice a week.
Lost my early morning job because of it.

Southampton punk band (Stop Press?) as support band (The Jam?) bringing in "friends" got a bit leery!

Southside Johnny supporting Graham Parker at the Winter Garden got an encore!

Have seen SSJ a number of times. Was a great show, even as recently as 10 years ago, but last time he was not quite up to it. Still, a massive talent who got absolutely screwed over by management and the industry.
