After a relatively good nights sleep, we awoke totally over-excited with the prospect of the evening. A bit of rain in the afternoon, but luckily nowhere near the downpour we'd had the afternoon before during the tech spec meeting. I popped into town in circa 2pm to do one more flier run and then came home to get changed.

Upon arrival at the venue (5pm), checked out both DJ booths (after hunting down the key to release the isolator) distribute what few Coven/Thursday Fury fliers I had left and put up posters and wait for the bar to open!

Managed to chat to a few band members before heading ino the garden to greet other friends that had travelled the length of the country to attend. By the time the event got underway, we were too busy chatting to watch the punk film, but made sure we were first in queue for another great set from The Adenoids. We stayed upstairs for the first of DJ Bonzi's sets until Rogue boarded the stage. Certainly not one of my most favourite performances, with one guitarist missing as he'd mistakenly decided to go and see The Foo Fighters, but they just didn't do it for me this time around I'm afraid.

As soon as they'd finished, we ran downstairs for the first big band of the night - Click Click. I only really discovered them a few years back, but since then, I jsut can't get enough of them, and play them any chance I get when Djing other nights. As you can see on my first post, I managed to capture their first song of the night, then spent the rest of the gig dancing.

After the smallest half hour I've ever experienced, we shot back upstairs for S.W.A.N.K. Even after only 3 bands, the times were already over-running, and after a frantic dancing session, had to run downstairs for the main event - UK Decays first full gig for 25 years.

After a few minutes of technical problems, they roared onstage for some 40 minutes banging out their classics such as Sexual, Unexpected Guests, and surprisingly, Testament (dedicated to Steve Harle). Again I got some video footage, but wanted to enjoy the band so put it away after a couple of songs. The crowd went mad, the atmosphere amazing throughout. I really pity anybody that chose not to attend.

After that dramatic and sensational gig, most peoples nights were over. Regadless that Rubella Ballet were also playing a little later. Upon venturing back downstairs to check them out, there wasn't even half the crowd compared to UK Decay, and as I'm not much of a fan, I left them to it.

On a more personal note and bearing in mind that there was still my DJ set to play, and with RBs being the headliners, came the usual bullshit extra long soundchecks knocking the time onto 12.30am before they'd finished, which then meant I wasn't due on till 1.15am. Off course by this time, 99% of people were either outside making the most of warm weather and garden, or gone home, and I was stuck playing to around 10 people! After listening intently to the other Djs throughout the night to ensure I didn't repeat any previous tracks, what should have been one of my finest hours (like alst years performance) turned out to be a total loss. I did remark about closing the night after 5 songs, but was told to play a bit longer, until those that remained had also buggered off upstairs. I managed to play a few of my planned songs, but ended up with this selection...

Shadow Reichenstein - Wakin' The Dead
Killing Joke - Pssyche
Sex Pistols - Substitute
The Clash - 1977
The Expolited - Dead Cities
The Cramps - Can your Pussy Do The Dog
The Ruts - Staring At The Rude Boys
The Toys Dolls - Ernie Had A Hernia
Public Image Limited - Public Image ®
The Jam - Batman
Siouxsie & The Banshees - Metal Postcard
Gary Numan - We Are So Fragile
Joy Division - She's Lost Control

After one last pint, and a bit of a rant at a few people for not coming back downstairs, we found a cab right outside and left for home. I was hoping to catch the aftershow party, but after getting home, Loopy throwing up and the general come-down, we went to bed exhausted but very contented.

All in all, it was one fucking great experience, with I'm told over 400 in attendance, seeing bands I'd never thought I'd ever experience, catching up with people I hadn't seen since the last event, and the cheapest bar I'd encountered in a long time, combined with what added up to 9 solid drinking and having fun, really nothing else could ever come close, and I shall never forget it. Sorry for any band I missed, but it was just impossible to see everybody on the night.

So lastly, thanks to all that helped on the night, all the bands that put in 110%. Your efforts were definately appreciated and I expect will be required again in 2009 if not before.

One last little plug....for any local peeps wanting to hear more of the same, I not only run Bedforshires only goth night, The Coven, but Lutons only post-punk/new wave pub night Thursday Fury @ The Blackhorse in Hastings Street every month. (All details on the nights can be found on the news page. )

I missed the first two re unions due to work committments but made the 3rd. hats off to all that but it together the memories came flooding back as I met some old friends and enemies.
I thought DK were grand and looked as if they were enjoying playing as much as I enjoyed being there.
I would like to thank the music mistro for playing the soundtack of my life in between the acts downstairs a great selection well done.

The only thing missing was jumping on the train back from the music machine all those years ago, who remembers that ?

Mind you I felt like I wanted to do it all again.

Saturday night was definatly a night for celebration thank you all.
