They came, we saw and nicked their S*T*A*R*s!

Did they affect our lives?

Yes they did, and here's how and why.

Emerging amidst a music scene celebrating Brit(pop)ishness, S*M*A*S*H arrived kicking and screaming about the reality of living in small town England. They were an adrenaline fuelled mix of anger, energy, righteous indignation, politics, DIY punk empowerment and star jumps, all choreographed to some of the finest punk-pop songs you'll ever hear.

They played hundreds of toilet gigs to thousands of normally overlooked punters, produced fanzines, badges and fantastic cheap sloganeering T shirts by the bucket load, released a single named after and inspired by Germaine Greer's 'Lady Love Your Cunt', played to hundreds of thousands from the back of a lorry at the Anti Nazi League Carnival in Brockwell Park, were responsible for some of the best singles of the 1990s and a rather disappointing album, and inspired us to start writing a 'zine.

And then they smuggled a song about killing the Tory cabinet into the Hit Parade.

Soon after they were themselves killed off by press hypocrisy and label incompetence, a band inspired and also finished off by the times in which they lived.

And now they're back. Looking older, possibly wiser but still as driven, S*M*A*S*H have returned with a bunch of new songs and many of the old ones too. Hearing these at a Bedford gig recently took me back to the excitement of 1994 when it seemed that a band could perhaps ignite and change the world.

Perhaps one still can?

THE ANGEL - Bedford (6 Jan 2006)
It may have been early in the New Year but the boys wanted to work off a few Christmas pounds with a pounding set. Like a trio of whippets they raced through a frenetic one hour and ten minute marathon and the Christmas excess and the years rolled away into the night. Good to see some of the usual suspects although the venue was a bit studenty. If I owned that place I'd have a special door for students; namely the exit.

Doorman: 'Have you got your student union card?' Student 'Yes.' Doorman: 'Good, well F*ck off then.' As always with a smash gig there is a tale to tell with the journey home. Upon leaving Bedford (by car, I wasn't risking the train.) I noticed a mist descending. By the time I reached the A1 it was turning into a sea fog. I grimly grasped the steering wheel until the white lines disappeared from view and it was anyone's guess where the road was. I crawled home at 15mph.

Helen drove the Smash tour Ambulance at 40mph. No mean feat with those conditions. Happy New Year everybody. May 2006 be a S*M*A*S*H*I*NG year. El Vino or coz I was driving El L'eau as it was on Friday.

P.S. Salv; were they your work trousers you were wearing on stage? They were, weren't they?
