I saw the Rollins Band for the first time as a teenager in 1992. I went to the afternoon all-ages show. The show was mesmerising. Pulverising. No strobes. No coloured lights. Just the band. The Rollins Band, grinding out a sonic-fury under white work-lights. I kept the flyer.
You lucky bastard! I was only 12 at the time and Rollins was only just entering my awareness (before pounding the shit out it over the next several years), so I was just a bit too late to see him in his peak. Man that would have been good …
Great to hear from you, Stu – it was a formative experience for sure!
If it’s of interest, consider watching Rollins Band – (Cameo Theatre) Miami,Fl 7.28.92 (Complete Show) for a remarkably reminiscent performance to the one I saw in Melbourne – the extended version of “Another Life” was also played. So good!
