Chelsea - The Alternative
Next we’ve got a little bit more CHELSEA for ya, I say a little bit, cos this is a 4 track promo/sampler of their Alternative album (If anyone’s got a copy of the whole album, a download link in the comment box would be well appreciated) got this copy off ‘em when they last played in Stevenage, when promoting the album some time in the 90’s. It was a bit of an eventful night for the band, when after a great set it was time to go, they found the tyres to their van had been let down, it transpired latter that it was the actions of a member of the local support band a bunch of ‘anarcho miscreants’ JESUS H DREDD who had objected to Chelsea behaving like “superstars” because they wouldn’t let them use the dressing room. To add insult to injury after the tyre had been pumped up the van spluttered to a halt 100 yards down the road from the venue, it came to light that sugar had also been poured into the vans petrol tank. Understandably the band were rather unhappy and returned to the venue to use the phone to ring the AA and search for the culprits who like Brave Sir Robin had run off home. That’s a West Ham supporter for ya anyway if you fancy the alternative, you Know what to do …..
