Mark's Mordred memories

I was contacted by a chap named Mark Bowes, and he shared not only his memories of Mordred live, but a photo of the ticket. Cheers!
" I was fortunate enough to see them live at the Glasgow Cathouse (when it was located on Brown St, now gone sadly)....I've managed to dig out my ticket and take a picture for your website as you've displayed some other tickets from back in the day.

Obviously '91 is a long time back but what I can recall is that the main floor stage in the old Cathouse was pretty small and as such the band were dotted around the place, definitely someone (probably the dude on the decks) was away off to one side. I remember also being down the front (it was a decent turn out but not overly busy) and myself and some girl that was attending asking one of the guitarists for a plectrum.....to which he replied it was his only one! :D

Back in the days when you could see a top qwol band for a deep sea diver! :D They probably didn't take to the stage until 11pm......them were the days! Too bad all the kids stealing music through downloads have pushed ticket and merch prices through the roof as no-one buys music anymore!

I got into them through airplay for 'Falling Away' on Headbangers Ball or The Power Hour (before it went to schit), bought 'In This Life' on cd and I think I picked up 'Fool's Game' on cassette...I'm not sure if I ever got 'The Next Room' but it's now on my Amazon list.

Anyway I enjoyed a read through your site (what I managed on the quiet at work yesterday) and fortunately remembered to snap a pick of the ticket before I left for work this morning."

I saw a gig on this tour too - in Manchester, at the Boardwalk I think. Great gig, and Scat Opera were a class band. I was terrified of their frontman!
