Black Francis with hair. Read the review and tell me you’re not jealous that you weren’t there.

And The Sugarcubes in the former Yugoslavia. Various rumours and reports that Einar’s off-key yelping at this gig was a major factor in the break up of the former Yugoslavia still persist to this day.

A prize for anyone that can tell me in the comments who or what the black butterfly was a teaser ad for.

N.M.E. 27th August, 1988. Live review of The Sugarcubes from I Beam Club, San Francisco and One Step Beyond, Santa Carla.

Interesting to note the withering review of Carter. 12 months later as the Carter U.S.M. and with Sheriff Fatman they’d be making a big splash. Didn’t they mug Philip Schofield at some Smash Hits award do?
