Poster for Big Blonde gig at Rockworld from 24th July 1991.

The gig was with Suicide Kicks and Bohemian Fags. I can't remember why, after all this time. But there was a real personal loathing between the members of Big Blonde [and later Nobody's Heroes] and the members of Bohemian Fags.

It would play out in many different ways, such as; adjusting the settings on each others instruments when they weren't looking, heckling each other from the audience, our drummer drumming along back-stage deliberately out of time, when they were playing, etc.

And, in the case of flyers or posters, there was an escalating war where we'd make their name as small as possible on our posters/flyers and they'd do the same to us on theirs.

[I'm not sure why Suicide Kicks got the same treatment here. I seem to remember we were good mates with several of them.]

Big Blonde were a Manchester Glam-Punk band and comprised stíobhart sleaze [me: stíobhart matulevicz] on vocals, Chrissi Whizz on guitar, Skinner von Skin on bass and Matz'n'Bootz [Matt Horton] on drums.

[Sorry 'Chrissi' and 'Skinner' but the ravages of time have left me unable to remember your real names!]

Also in the line-up Bohemian Fags and Suicide Kicks
