Greatest Gigs in Shetland....ever!


Recommended Posts

I played with the Hammfatters at one of those Brig o Fitch happenings. It was indeed a tremendous fun.


We did a couple of marquee gigs at Kergord which were great fun as well. There's something really good about playing in a field in the middle of summer. Does it still happen?

Showaddywaddy at the Clickimin.......


Well, I [/i]was only 13 and it was the first "gig" I'd ever been to!!

I was talking to a bloke in the pub about that gig last night. My first proper gig too. Fantastic!!! Also the first record I bought (or maybe that was Adam & The Ants) After too many bevereges, I often listen to Showaddywaddy. In fact, I'm going to put listen to them now...........

i do remember them being really snooty about letting us use their gear.


New Model Army could not have been the superb band they were/are without copious amounts of attitude. Time is a great moderator though, and i believe the singer has reverted from using his stage name "Slade the Leveller", to his real name which is Justin Sullivan. :lol:


Brilliant gig though.


(One of the best bass players ever, Stuart Morrow, in their original line-up, hard act to follow but they've succeeded twice)

And with all the fine events mentioned so far: Dare i say the two Shetland Rock Festivals in the clickimin. They were pretty good. It's seems so long ago that i can hardly remember the line up, so i won't embarass myself trying, but pretty huge in their day.


Anybody ken the definitive list?


Not even near complete, but :-


Deacon Blue

Toxic Ephex

The Bolshoi

Love and Money

The Men They Couldn't Hang


Tom Morton's band
