ALABAMA 3 - London Tower Records - 18 July 2001   Print  E-mail 
Written by Mark Reed

Dear all ... had a lovely time in London

Everything is grey and smelly and full of tourists. Went to see the Alabama3 play an instore at Tower Records in Piccadilly Circus, was very good.

Was waiting in the queue whilst lots of people asked us why we were queuing and then walking off because they did understand the answer.. "Oh, you're seeing the Alabama 3, are they criminals?" or "oh, you're going to see Lotsabands. Oh yeah, I like them."

All well and good, into the crowd to see Alabama 3, and most of the crowd are just freeloaders out for a freebie. Don't know who they're seeing. And so we saw the Alabama 3, who were actually 7, excepting they didn't have that bass guitarist with them. Sounded weird, has he left? I wonder. But excellent they were. They played that song off the gangster TV show, which the Reverend D Wayne Love introduced as "from that TV show .. I can't remember the name of it, but its got... guns.. and drugs.. and gangsters ... and all things I wouldn't suggest you try at home."

And then they were gone. Short and Sweet.  

Setlist: Cocaine, Woke Up This Morning, U Dont Dans 2 Tekno, Rehabilitated.
