    Now't to do with the 90s apart from the band members themselves dating from well before then but my mate Pete (Evil Blizzard) told me the other night that Evil Blizzard have a gig lined up supporting Rainbow at the O2 Arena in June. Massive gig that. Must be just about the biggest gig a Preston outfit has ever had as far as I can remember. I'm not keen on Evil Blizzard but hey, great gig to get, that.

    I used to rehearse up at the farm with Ed and Iain when I was at Runshaw early 90s and good mates with Simon Cordall and Matty Brown. They were great days! There's been some good bands mentioned on this thread and gigged with most of them including Schitzoid, Tetleys (who were great, btw) and others I can't remember now.
    I left Preston about 20 years ago and saw this thread only today. I used to be a drummer in a band called Half Hell Crazy with two Geordies Ian *** and Jason Ward. We were pretty shite, to be fair.
    Preston was a great place to be in the 90s - like someone said, original songs not covers and lots of venues.

    It's been nice reminiscing, thanks!

    I deffo gave Side all of my Dreamland / Pronoise stuff to convert to CD.

    Edit - You're not Trog, you're Anthony!

    Extra Edit - Briana was her name, just came to me now.
    Briana, a mate of Leona's used to drink in the Cock ( think she worked the bar at one point too ) also mates with Sarah........ ( used to go out with Ady )
    Drank in there since it was Boatmans until the very evening it shut down as the Cock ( even during the dire Dangerous Sportsmen days )

    Aye, she did bar work at Harrys Bar too, I think. Dark haired lass. I know Sarah (Action Records).

    They were good days those early 90s in town, some decent local bands around with good friendly rivalry between many of them and you'd often get three or four on the same bill sharing equipment and the scant takings that were on offer. It was usually just a drum kit, a dodgy PA and a couple of old amps between the bands. These days that rarely happens because many bands have such expensive gear they are reluctant to let anyone else use it.
    Dirty Harry. Spouting shite and nowt better to do since 2015.

    Early 90s were the last good days for music and being a musician. Seriously, I've only seen things go downhill since. Look where we are now.
