Goner Message Board / ???? / Hugh Cornwell

Saw him last night, was really excellent. First set was a bunch of new stuff (which was actually pretty good) and hits like No More Heroes and Golden Brown rearranged for bass-drums-guitar. Second set was the Rattus Norvegicus LP in its entirety. Excellent show but what I really wanted to mention was the great CLEM BURKE on drums, looking pretty much the same as he did 30 years ago. The man is a MONSTER. Power, precision, simplicity...I would kill to have him in my band.

I first saw him in the early 80s with the late, unlamented Chequered Past with Steve Jones, the Sales brothers, and Michael Des Barres (he, and the songs, were the weak links...) I still remember how powerful he was even now.

We opened for him at East end. Hugh still has it and the bassist Fish (from James Chance and the Blacks) was a cool guy and had the JJ burnel tone down flat!
