Black Sheep On Tour

The Screaming Banshee Aircrew

at The Bassment, Leeds, 11th May 2003

Black Sheep's true home is, and always will be, the legendary "Baa Phono", the intimate little club beneath the heart of the Merrion Centre, with it's columned dance floor, superb sound system, and glass columns full of fish on the bar. However, occasionally, the event that is Black Sheep plays host to live bands, and as the Phono has no stage, this necessitates going a'wandering through the night to other venues. One such occasion saw the flock gathering at The Bassment, just round the corner from the Phono, to witness the aparition that is The Screaming Banshee Aircrew live and on the wing. This is the story of that evening. Be warned, gentle reader, that events took place, and sights were seen, that may not be suitable for innocent young lambs. In particular, a veritable plague of stripey tights was in evidence. You have been warned...

Note: I'd been asked to video the event for the band, so most of the actual gig shots here are the work of my good friend Princess Linzi, enthusiastic new memeber of the Leeds dark flock, and as you can see pretty good gig photographer! Thanks Linzi!
