Discharge - Newport TJ's 12/01/08

Another year. Another TJ's gig. Headlined this evening by Discharge. Well, Discharge with Rat from The Varukers singing as he has for about 5 years now.
Rainy looking for all the world like a Big Issue seller these days.
The Sound was a bit tinny to start with, and it just sounded like The Varukers. As much as I love The Varukers when you go and see Discharge, you want Discharge. Know what I mean?
Started to warm up a bit mid set, esppecially when the wheeled out this old chestnut.Discharge - Realities Of War You looking at me Bones?

Support band Short Bus Window Lickers.They know a lot of songs, it has to be said.Short Bus Window Lickers - Sticky Vicky
Short Bus Window Lickers - 6 For A Fiver

As Ian Mackaye once said 'Haven't We Met Before?'(See recent Restarts photos and spot the difference) and Ian no doubt would give you a sharp slap on the legs for that T-Shirt young fella me lad.
They did a cracking cover of 'Plastic Bomb' by Poison Idea by the way.
Short Bus Window Lickers - Fuck Knows Mainiac

Pig of This System Kills ex-Rectify and Classified Protest, Peroxide with some other colour in her hair, Joe and some grinning twat.
Known this man for about 25 years now. If you see him buy him a pint. Pig from This System Kills and his other half Sue. And some pissed twat.
Local lads Rejected who do a fine live show.
I want that shirt. Visit them. Rejected
More mohawks than you can shake a stick at. Good night all in all.

Lol, you almost had me there. Thought you had some bootleg from the gig viz that Discharge upload. But as I opened that file it was some old wanker going on about realities of gwar or some shit. Total 77 punk bollox. Did not sound half like VWanurkers!

as it goes Dis-ukers were alright for an evening out. I only put up the Realities Of War thing as the toms on the start of it still make the old hairs stand up. Nice to see old friends as well. See 'em I say.
