Okay, I've updated the 1990 Live Dates page with links to magazine reviews and images (some of which - Bristol June 1990 and Norwich October 1990 - have been generously donated by Graham - many thanks). Let me know what you think - I shall eventually be adding live reviews for all gigs that will be linked from the various dates (where they exist).

Finally, Graham has also donated a flyer for the HitSquad MCr gig at Manchester in March 1988 - history in the making - many thanks, Graham!

Roskilde 1991 was on saturday June 29.

Blå Scene.
http://roskilde-festival.dk/object.php? ... 0c&code=45

With link to 808state.com:
http://roskilde-festival.dk/object.php? ... le&code=45

Line 24. El Wez (Mex) 808 State (UK).
http://roskilde-festival.dk/object.php? ... 0c&code=45

There was a Club Roskilde feature on national radio some time after. With a 30 min. 808 feature with music and words. I didn't catch it. I switched on too late and only heard the Deee-Lite bit.

A have another radio feature from the era though. With interviews with Martin and Tunes.

BTW 1991 the wetest Roskilde ever.

Superb stuff - just corrected the Roskilde '91 date, and added the flyer - just remember that I haven't add the links yet - will probably do that on Friday!

I've also added a lot more gigs from 1991 (North American dates that I've found via Google News - good source of info, that!), 1996 (Barca Aftershow Party flyer in Manchester & Free Jazz flyer, both courtesy of Graham), 1997 (European Dates - Norway, Poland, Czechoslovakia, Glastonbury, etc - courtesy of Graham - I'll finalise exactly which day they appeared when I borrow a mate of mine's Glasto '97 Programme - a muddy year, that!).

To do - some more live photos from 1990 to upload (again, courtesy of Graham - many thanks).

Keep it all coming! 8)

Regarding the Gorgeous '93 tour, the Glasgow Barrowlands gig was cancelled on the day, 26th Feb.

Me and my mate had bought tickets for it, 808 were supposed to be signing copies of the album in HMV in Argyle Street, that never happened either!

We only found out it was cancelled when we turned up at the gig, there was no news of it on the radio or anything.

Nightmare.

Roskilde Festival have redesigned their webside with a bit more information about past years. For 1991 including a scan of the official festival paper. I think it was made as a supersize promotion freely available in concert places, cafes etc. prior to the festival itself.

http://www.roskilde-festival.dk/fileadm ... r/1991.pdf

Page six is an article concerning the club music. Opening with a Darren quote and having a picture of the lads. This is the first time I see this myself.

1991 ex:el NA tour date

Postby cubikcat » 20 Sep 2008 19:06

great work on this list.

there's one gig from the 1991 tour that's missing, but i don't know the date.

it was in tallahassee, florida at the late night library and was a great show. could it have been tuesday, 23 sept, as that date was canceled for new orleans?

thx
