This is from the Youtube description:I'm not from Coventry obviously, is that place local?Good to see that they performed together more recently and stood and explored the same places.
Great stuff, thanks.This is from the Youtube description:
This track, One More Fool, was the opener for the first gig in 27 years, at the Drayton Court, West Ealing, London, on 2nd August 2008. The night raised £1500 for a childhood leukaemia research charity as well as a few eyebrows at Johnny's wig and Stan's naked torso. After gigging around Coventry for a couple of years from 1979, giving support slots to a nascent Napalm Death and providing Stan Campbell with his first gig (before he went on to sing 'Free Nelson Mandela' for Special AKA), the Human Cabbages appeared on the 'Boys and Girls Come Out To Play' compilation 7" and made an EP, 'The Witch'. John Peel played the records once or twice but the odd distraction got in the way in the shape of careers, families and general relocation to disparate quarters meaning that rehearsals became kind of less frequent and the Human Cabbages just never got around to arranging another gig. Then, in 2005, out of the blue an email came from avid US collector, Chuck Warner in Massachusetts asking if he could put 'The Witch' on his 'Messthetics 103' Midlands DIY compilation CD. So now you can buy the Human Cabbages at Tescos (well, online at least). The track's been played on US college radio stations as well as Stuart Maconie's Freakzone (BBC6) so it was high time for another gig. There had been a spontaneous reunion at Steve Teers' wedding in 2006 when it was noticed that there would be 5 Human Cabbages in the same room. But the singer of 'The Witch', Rosa Roberts, had long since disappeared, until that is, an article in the Coventry Telegraph led to Rosa calling Steve and arranging lunch... Plans to play a 'hometown tour' of the band's current hometowns of Newcastle, Liverpool, Bournemouth, Coventry and London are a twinkle in the collective Cabbage-eyes. Voice: Rosa Roberts Bass: Stan Horton Guitar: Johnny Fagznbooze Keys/trombone: Steve Teers Drums: Steve Williams
It's dropped to page 4 chap...Didn't we used to have a gigs thread? Can't find it now.
Increasingly thinking I wouldn't be going to another gig this year. Gigs that were postponed in April / May and moved to later in the year are now being cancelled completely. I've got nothing in the diary until November now.
i think live music is going to be fucked for a long time after this.
The best thing you could probably do right now is spend a few million on a hotel that won't be used because you've got no events :angelic:Concerts and exhibitions are going to be really hard to sell now imagine if you owned a conference centre that is costing you a fortune and nothing is coming in.
brilliant.. from a couple of years later I rediscovered this one recently via Mixcloud, brings back some happy memoriesIt sort of came off the back of the BLM coverage but I heard recently that Adonis of the below breakthrough iconic house track has never received a penny in royalties
I've been listening to a lot of other stuff of this era, brilliant...

I’m on Soundcloud too- not as well known but I really like it. Do you use Mixcloud? They ‘monetised’ it recently but it’s still a goldmine for anything you’re looking for, and I’m gonna find that Acid Soul collection right now, thanks for the tip. I think this one below is probably my favourite from that era- still gives me goosebumps even now, and to make it even better this is half of the mighty Future Sound Of London, aka Amorphous Androgynous, who made the album which literally changed my lifeI've re-downloaded Soundcloud and logged in, not used it much for a good few years.
Can't share easily but rediscovered the 'Acid Soul' collection from the user 'Leftside Wobble', these are great car or exercise listening.
