Mike Peters, Fluff, She Said @ The Bistro, Rhyl

By |July 16th, 1998|0 Comments

We all did it 16 years ago, we all laughed at Top Of The Pops as The Alarm mimed their Top 10 hit 68 Guns, the Clash clones of Rhyl had hit the big time & everyone ridiculed them for it.  It was our way of covering our envious jealousy.  The Alarm did it right, they hit it big in America; the bigger market.  But this is where it all started, at The Bistro in Rhyl where you pulled dodgy birds/blokes, while Mike Peters working behind the bar pulled even dodgier pints. Although he doesn’t play that Top 10 hit any longer he made the exception tonight, claiming that he wrote the song while working behind the bar.  Every hair on my head stood on end as the shiver made its way from my brow to the base of my spine as I stood in awe of the nostalgia being presented to me with 2.5KW of power.
