T.S.O.L still got it
First saw TSOL in the film Suburbia back in 1986 and read about them in Thrasher magazine. Eventually managed to find Beneath the Shadows on vinyl (pre internet / Ebay so not an easy task) and was pretty much hooked. I also realised they were American and therefore it would be unlikely I'd ever see them in the UK. So, 32 years later and here they are on tour!
All I can say is they didn't disappoint - Jack is a larger than life character and was obviously enjoying himself on stage bouncing around in his bright red suit. He also kept the crowd engaged with his banter - even inviting us to 'look him up' if we're in the US. Original guitarists Mike & Ron smashed it and the new drummer kept everything on beat.
My only gripe was no keyboards when they played my favourite track Wash Away but what the hey.
