About the evening from curbsfan..
I drove The Curbs and their equipment down Oxford Road to The Squat.
It was a large cavernous venue with a generous back stage area, hit hard
with paint spray of the bands name, recall we sat on a sofa for a band photo.
The Curbs sat up on a wall, photos were taken but Pete Taylor has those.
I took a couple of the band on stage, belting out songs off The Clash's first album, stuff like Janie Jones, What's My Name, I'm So Bored With The USA.
The Clash were a major influence on The Curbs, who enjoyed coverin' em'.
