Civic Hall Wolverhampton
First glimpse of the band Gay Dad for many was on tour with Mansun. I saw this at the Civic Hall Wolverhampton, as this unique band upstaged a poor opening act in Transvacular or some crap name when they came out and thrilled us with a song to set a standard for the evening in Joy. As the band carried on I realised that I had never seen a warm up band have this kind of impact on the crown as the regular queues for the bar disappeared as a sold out crowd were moshing to an exciting fresh new sound in To Earth With Love. Mansun never did manage to match the opening for Gay Dad and Mansun are a talented out fit but on the way out thier was a rush to loot signs of Gay Dad that were hung upon lamposts etc... which summarises the evening well.
