The first Gits gig at Champagnes on Tuesday 9th February 1988 where we supported Whirl.
The local West Sussex County Times review read thus,
Headliners Whirl were their usual boisterous selves. A Mad rush of guitar noise and a couple of catchy melodies characterised their brief set.
With a BBC session, a single and a tour in the near future things could be rosy for the Brighton popsters.
The Gits UK garnered this praise,
With two of three undeniably good songs to their credit there are real signs of talent in this unassuming four-piece.
And some memories of that from Rob,
We just about salvaged the gig by finishing with a song me and Matt had come up with a couple of weeks before, Eventually. I remember this as Jim’s amour of the time laughed heartily at it when I played them the demo. I believe she may have got her comeuppance in some later lyrics.
In Local News…
A vandal proof musical toilet could replace Cowfold’s present lavatories.
What was possibly the only Whirl information on the web has disappeared. If I have the blog post somewhere I’ll upload for posterity.
