Hard Ons & Meanies
« Thread started on: Aug 20th, 2013, 08:37am »
So right now, 20 years ago, I was attending the first of 2 Hard-Ons and Meanies shows in Melbourne, over what was then a friday night and Saturday. They were memorable because :
Friday - The Prince of Wales: The bass amp blew up during the Hard-Ons set, and they spent a good part of the allocated playing time trying to fix it.
Saturday - All Ages show at Wall St. (Hi-Fi Bar): All the kids left after the Meanies set, and Blackie had a go at the remaining kids because they were playing to a depleted audience.
But, I do also remember (on the friday) watching Ray play Addams family pinball, and talking to Keish nonchalantly about who was playing first while he ate take-away sitting on the floor in front of the mixing desk. Even though, I was "Fuck, I'm talking to Keish!!!"
And then after the show on Saturday I went to see Fear Factory and Christbait at The Sarah Sands with some new friends. And the new friends had a major influence on my life at the time. So I guess that's why I'm bringing it up here. Does anyone else have memories of those shows?...
