Re: Grandmaster flash live in accrington

Cannot stand the whole scene, however I remember it well. This is a big thing for the town, well done Leon.
For the very first time, I think I may be in agreement with Groove and Kestralx.

Now if you could get Seasick Steve......

Jay, he's a Blues man, simply brilliant. A bit like Robert Johnson.
Groove mate I am jealous.

YouTube - Broadcast Yourself.
Maybe Seasick Steve should do a version of this by Grandmaster Flash..



You might not get it but this is the 80's equivelent of the Blues! Blues being singing about facts of life and things that **** you off!

Re: Grandmaster flash live in accrington

I thought "The Message" was brilliant "White Lines" is also a decent tune..can anyone recall the last time any chart topping artist from the 80's performed in Accrington?..Blackburn is the usual venue, I think this is a positive for Accy and hope it's just the start.

Groove likes Mancie's avatar, believing Strangeways here we come to be a very under-rated Smiths album.

Re: Grandmaster flash live in accrington

I don't know much about Level One at all so sorry about the questions
Is there an age limit of any kind?
How do I get tickets?
I love Grandmaster Flash and it's brilliant he's coming to Accrington! Great job!

Ticket to ride, white line highway.

Tell all your friends, they can go my way.

Pay your toll, sell your soul.

Pound for pound costs more than gold.



Hope that helps with pricing.

Ticket to ride a white-line highway
Tell all your friends they can go my way
Pay your toll, sell your soul
Pound for pound it costs more than gold
The longer you stay, the more you pay
My white lines go a long way
Either up your nose or through your vein
With nothing to gain except killing your brain
Thats the one classic 80's

Great minds....it was great song to dance to back then, really groundbreaking and risky for it's time. Seems quite tame by todays standards.
