    A few things in WA triggered my failing memory into some semblance of activity and I went through some old records and rediscovered my Siouxsie & The Banshees collection.
    I loved this band (and had the serious hots for Siouxsie).
    For those who are unacquainted with this very important Punk band, here is the incomparable SS:



    I just thought it might be nice if people searched You Tube to find performances from bands that were important to them or influenced them, and then shared.



    PS Music has always featured large in my life and I have seen live just about every important band since the late 60's so I've got a whole bunch of memories. You have been warned!

    That would make the chain longer and harder to yank.

    I wish that you hadn't made me do this. Thinking of who I saw way back, I didn't expect to find any of the Edgar Broughton Band, but there they were, (Green Lights starts at about 3:14) Almost alive, would you believe. Now if I could find the Peel interview...

    Then I searched for Crass, and found . Incredible.

    Next, Germ Free Adolescents, scrub away, scrub away the SR way. Well, I thought that I knew what had become of her, and Laura Logic. I drew a blank with Laura.

    Thinking back to drunken Crown Posada nights at the Guildhall down by Newcastle quayside in the early 70's I remembered What happened to that singer? He stopped hanging out with us. He was quite good.

    I drew another blank with the Mike Westbrook / Red Brass mob.

    The first concert I sneaked my High Speed Ektachrome loaded Nikkormat and 105 mm f/2.5 past security was a Tull concert.

    I was at the 'farewell' concert.



    And as an ex-resident of the Hotel Chelsea (We love you, Stanley Bard) how could I miss
    Best,
    Helen

    I didn't go to as many live concerts as I'd have liked (protective parents while growing up), but here are some of the performers I saw:

    Now this is a thread I could participate in, if only I wasn't in the office supposedly working. My back-catalogue of live bands is also extensive, whether they were all important though is debatable. More on this one later...
