EARLY COCKNEY REBEL GIGS
8 months 6 days ago #12806
It was 1973 and I was in Wax Records at the Junction in Southampton and Marc behind the counter was playing 'Sebastian'. I was blown away and couldn't wait for the album to come out. (see attached photo) CR played at Southampton Uni halls of residence on Sat 17th Nov 1973 .. the gig was advertised as a disco! I can't remember who the support was, probably one of the local bands, but when CR came on the power went off! They did the whole gig acoustically. Tickets cost 40p! They came back to Southampton on Thurs 17th Oct 1974 and by that time they were SH and CR and tickets were £1! supported on that gig by a band called 'Life' but I don't know anything about them and can't remember what they were like. Was anyone else at either of those gigs?
