Moshpit Memories II (1982-2002): Alan Moore, The Pogues, Jim Rose & pals
What we have here is a sequel to PlanetSlade's 2015 collection of gig-going anecdotes from the golden age of UK pub rock, punk and ska (previously on Projects). This time round, I'm covering the years from 1982 -2002, when my major obsessions included Alan Moore, The Pogues, The Jim Rose Circus Sideshow and any twanged-up country band I could find playing the bars of Nashville, Austin, San Antonio and Detroit.

Among our supporting cast, you'll find Ian Stewart, Alan Coren, Amarillo Slim, Joe Strummer, Pinetop Perkins, Psycho Ceilidh, The Shaolin Monks, Garth Ennis, John Constantine, Foghorn Leghorn, The Sex Pistols, Iggy Pop, Nick Cave, Kylie Minogue, Suggs, Harold Evans, The Cowslingers, Tom Waits, Patricia Neal, The Hollisters, Jody Jenkins, The Orbitsuns, Thornetta Davis and Franklin Hastings III, an acknowledged expert on the lost art of musical farting.

I just finished reading this. The Jim Rose Circus was a flashback for me. Thanks for sharing.
