    GIG #4: Oxford St, Metro- 19th February S*M*A*S*H*, M.A.S.S, The Electric Shocks + The Patty Winters Show

    (excerpt)

    By the time they're through, I'm left a gibbering, non-sensical wreck, but there's no time for that now, I need to pull myself up by the bootstraps for indie-punk godfathers S*M*A*S*H*.

    Being but a young lad of 24 years, I missed them the first time around, having only been 12 when they first started gigging, but Jim's even more excited than usual about the prospect of seeing them live tonight, and with good reason.

    The intervening years certainly seem to have been kind to the band, with Singer Ed bouncing around the stage with the energy of a Mcfly fan high on e-numbers, while bassist Salv executes potentially groin straining scissor kicks (one of which came within inches of dismantling my camera), despite a bout of gastric 'flu.

    The music sounds as fresh today as I imagine it must have done back when the eNeME were lauding them as leading lights of the ridiculously monikered New Wave of New Wave movement along with fellow Reliefers Carter USM (or at least their component parts - see Sunday review), and parallels between current favourites such as The Rakes, The Departure, and half of the million other bands prefaced by the definite article, are not difficult to spot, with punchy guitars and danceable beats.

    There are still plenty of the old faithful coming out to see them, but they will also have won themselves a few new fans tonight.

    After the show, it's off to London's trendiest indie nightspot Frog for a some cheap drinks and MTV2 approved floor fillers in a room full of people with ill advised hair styles. I feel fairly uneasy in places like this at the best of times, and my complete lack of sleep this week is doing nothing for my enthusiasm.

    Things promise to pick up with a set by hotly tipped newcomers The Subways, but despite the exuberance of their much lusted after blonde bassist, they failed to inspire anything other than indifference in comparison with M.A.S.S., S*M*A*S*H* & The Patty Winters Show, so it's a taxi back to Brixton for a few hours kip before the big finale.

    Hi everyone,

    I'm putting together an article on our Relief Week shows & would love to hear what you thought of them.

    If you were at one of the gigs & have any photos, or would like to do a short write up of what you thought, either post them on here, or e-mail to paul[a]joyzine.co.uk (email) & I'll include them in the feature.

    S*M*A*S*H rocked the Metro last night and the crowd battled* (see below) through blizzard conditions to witness their set.

    Big shout out to S*A*L*V for hauling himself out of his death bed with gastric flu and triumphing over his 'ring of fire.'

    Good to meet Clare and one of the 'Head Honcho' crew.

    * When I say battled it was a F*cking mare getting to the gig. All stopper trains and rail replacement to get there. No trains at all getting back. Me and my mate Jimmy Gee were walking around like a pair of crabs looking behind us for a cab. It took forever and we got home at 3 in the morning.

    I challenge Ken Livingstone to take the International Olympic Committee out for an evening in town starting and ending up in WGC. If he did he'd be walking around with a face like a smacked arse (or indeed a concentration camp guard) when he got home freezing his nuts off at 3 in the morning like we did.

    Anyway wherever S*M*A*S*H play next I'll be there and hopefully the now legendary Monkey Bob and the Mentalists will be there to make it kick off big time.

    Finally on the subject of WGC bands, The Subways have got a bit of a top flight gig coming up- supporting Embrace at the Millenium Dome in May. Plus they are on a nationwide tour for a couple of months prior, so see them at a small venue now before they make it big time.

    El Vino (or as it was last night at the Metro El warm cans of Guinness.)
