‘I’m not really into punk’ said Adrenalin Talkin’s guitarist as we stood in the Dudley bogs having a piss. It’s a strange ritual we men go through, standing there chatting to each other with our dicks out.
We both agreed on our one love though, The Ruts, although not into punk, the Holyhead guitarist shared my affection for that punk band and he had earlier played Back Biter on stage to a receptive audience. I had told him covers bands didn’t really do it for me and to play anything by The Clash (Tommy Gun & Janie Jones) is sacrilege. But, credit where its due, Adrenlin Talkin’ put on a good show, with Sham 69, Billy Bragg, The Ramones, SLF all given an airing and a bit of Generation X, although the singer Dave, didn’t quite share the looks of Billy Idol.More
