Bermondsey Joyriders at The 100 Club: Rat Scabies joins line-up
Last night Loved One and I trekked to The 100 Club in London's West End to see our friend Gary Lammin (Cock Sparrer, The Little Roosters) debut the new line-up of his band, The Bermondsey Joyriders, which sees powerhouse drummer Rat Scabies (The Damned) join Gary and Martin Stacey (Chelsea).
A great energetic gig, Gary isn't a man for the slow ballade so Rat's Keith Moonesque slamming fits in nicely.
I've posted "All The Darkness" and my favourite Lammin song, "Football". Very apt on this Word Cup Final weekend. Oh, there's Germany's first goal ...
OK, one more. Here's the much-covered "Runnin Riot" Gary wrote an age ago when he was in Cock Sparrer in the 1970s.
