djpamm... I completely agree with you there! I may be 35 now, but I missed out on seeing so many great bands in the 80s because I was just that bit too young! Sometimes I really do wish I'd been born about 10 years earlier, then I could've been old enough to have been there. Still, I've been doing a bit of catching up since 2004! I reckoned on Saturday that I'm just left with Human League and Tears for Fears (if they're still together) to see to make things pretty much complete for me. Oh, and The Police - but I doubt I'll ever get to see them! Not when it's been something like �50 a ticket and travel to London? That's over �70 on the train... then I'd have to arrange somewhere to crash! No chance!   Wouldn't mind seeing ABC either... actually, should've popped down Skegness way first weekend of the month, they had HL, ABC, Go West and Bananarama all there on the Sunday! Dunno what's going on in my neck of the woods, but something very odd is happening!

TFF were good live - only seen them once tho. A group that do put on a good show is someone called OMD. Anyone ever heard of them?

lol.. yeah, I heard a rumour that they're some kind of wierd band who use synthesisers as well as real drums and bass guitar. Apparently they've done some great experimental electronic stuff in the past. Must give them a try sometime!   Wouldn't mind seeing a band like that live

well not really embarassing as such but back in the days of 'mail order' (very 20th century) there used to be record delaers who advertised their wares in NME and such papers , and in particular one week (circa 1983) they had a load of new titles advertised by OMD which I had never heard of !!!! There was me thinking I'd come across a treasure trove of new recordings by McCluskey & co. so I think I wrote to them (by real letter with real stamp!) to order the stuff specifying 'Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark' and they very kindly wrote back saying nope it ain't them it's the Ozark Mountain Daredevils.....good job they were honest and didn't cash my (overdrawn) cheque otherwise I would have had a lot of pretty weird records in my collection !!
