|The King WitchDoktor 6 Combo - Photo by Paul Slattery|
I'd like to say a very big thank you to all that came along to our Retro Man Blog Night at The Half Moon in Putney despite many obstacles, diversions and other distractions - myself and all the bands really appreciated it! I'd also like to say thanks to the bands too, all three really turned it on with great sets. The SuperMinx'70 kicked off the evening and despite having to play without their regular sax player due to illness, they dug in and delivered a fine set of their raucous sing-along gems. King Salami & The Cumberland 3 raised the temperature even higher and got everyone dancing along to their Punk Rhythm and Blues. Then, headliners The WitchDoktors delivered another faultless set of supercharged down and dirty Rock 'n' Roll. For the encore, the band were joined by Kamikaze and Pepe from King Salami to power through a crazed cover of The Damned's "Neat Neat Neat" which brought proceedings to a suitably chaotic climax. Rock Photographer Paul Slattery was there to capture all the action and has kindly shared some of his great photos of the gig.
