The WaitForTheBlackout Zone say:
Should be a good gig (Dave Vanian & the lads)-- the same we saw at Toad's at the start of May =)

Demand that they do "Grimly Fiendish" and see what happpens...and no elbows in the pit. Meanwhile, IAFA waited till you were gone to sustain a thread on the Medieval and sf...

WFTB Zone rejoinders:

Nah, they didn't get anywhere near PHANTASMAGORIA-era stuff; mostly the new lp and '70s hits.

Cheryl at the front of the stage DID ask THE Captain Sensible to play "Happy Talk"

CS: "Dave won't let me!"

Sorry -- the film The Damned rather than the group, but I am seeing The Fall, The Buzzcocks and John Cooper Clarke on Wednesday!

And here I thought Kate would be moshing her little heart out!

You can still do it at the Movies...but people would look at you funny.

The Visconti Zone clicks heels und adds:

Oh *that* DAMNED--Dirk, Helmut & a bunch of Reichers sitting around MANY dinners kvetching *stylishly*

Saw that on a double bill w/DEATH IN VENICE--what a fast paced afternoon! ;D

I thought you meant the movie from the first...demanding that Macdonald Carey and Oliver Reed's images perform "Grimly Fiendish," while you swing arms up near the screen to clear a pit. CY has the right notion.

Yet the other THE DAMNED, Signore Zona, aka THESE ARE THE DAMNED. It's Loseytown, Teddy Boys, despair with one I, and all.

I was lucky enough to see DON'T LOOK NOW and THE COMFORT OF STRANGERS together for free at the fine National Gallery theater, first time for both, in a Venetian architecture double-feature...I still haven't seen DEATH IN VENICE to know whether it might've been usefully in the same series.
