Stones, August 1995

Not a bad month in Stones Bar in Frederick Street nearly 20 years ago …the 10th was apparently the night that Travis were signed to Independiente and celebrated in good style.  I wasn’t there that night, but I was there on the 23rd to watch The Moondials, which included Stevie Jackson, soon to join Belle and Sebastian.  They were  a great band, but I could never get anybody to agree with me on that.

Marc Pilley was in twice that month, supporting on 2nd and with Little Hopetown Giants on 22nd.  I drove all the way to Perth to see them one night, but they’d cancelled…

The Thanes, of course, have existed forever.
