The Union - Tuesday 15th December - Relentless Garage, Islington

The first ever gig from the Union. Thunder's Luke Morley joins forces with long-time guitar/volcalist mate, Peter Shoulder.

This was at the "Relentless Garage" which used to be the plain old "Garage" at Highbury and Islington. Really not into this constant renaming of venues any more than I am renaming of pubs. We managed to get returns on the "lottery only" style of ticket allocation, but weren't totally shocked to find the venue not full! Bar was expensive (and provoked a few comments from the punters) and the headline act played a short but acomplished bluesy set - all filmed for a DVD release next year. It'll be interesting to see how the album turns out too.
