School’s Not Like It Was In Our Days…

The Bay City Rollers

The Bay City Rollers

When I went to primary school, many moons ago, we had discos and danced to the Bay City Rollers and The Osmonds and we thought life was pretty good. These events were always in the afternoon, and we were always home in time for Jackanory. How times have changed…

Last night, we sort of re-visited our primary school days at Cavendish. The Electric Circus had rolled into town and we weren’t going to miss this gig – especially, as we’d been put on the “guest list”. Finally, after years of spending money going to see bands, we’d arrived!

Cavendish is a pretty cool school to begin with, but when you find out that the caretaker used to be in The Fall, and has his own band – well, it just takes care-taking to a whole new level! Blistering onto stage with “Should I Stay or Should  Go”, this was the West Didsbury equivalent of The Clash at the Hammersmith Palais.

This is certainly the only gig I ‘ve ever been to where six year olds are rocking out to The Psychedelic Furs and throwing shapes that Iggy Pop would be proud of.

The intention of the gig was to raise funds for the school – but I think a lot more was achieved if the kids’ faces were anything to by…
