JOHNNY THUNDERS AND THE HEARTBREAKERS @ The Savoy, London 29/10/84


1984 was a busy year for Thunders in the UK, 5 nights in August at the Marquee, brilliant every night, it felt like I'd moved into the place. A co-headline tour with Hanoi Rocks and The Babysitters. Bit ropey at times on that tour; playing the same song twice, falling into the crowd, but still some great gigs. Railway stations are cold and uncomfortable to sleep on, but it was worth it. At the end of October Thunders returned to the capital to play The Savoy, a right dingy venue above the Boston Arms pub in Tufnell Park North London. "The plaster's falling of the walls" A bit of a subdued gig in front of a strange mixed up audience of Rock'n'Rollers, skinheads and goths, amongst the empty spaces. Not a bad performance from Thunders, but nowhere near as electric as he was at Marquee Week. Not really the Heartbreakers, more of a ramshackled band of rock'n'roll gypsies, including Terry Chimes on Drums. On Gloria and Pills Thunders is joined by Mike Monroe and Andy McCoy from Hanoi Rocks; were it really gets cranked up. Anyway If ya wanna check it out, all you have to do is click!
