Previously on Sweating with Strangers: the All-American Rejects sucked... my blood! Also, they just sucked. Remember when I said it would get awkward remembering how much money I spent going to gigs when I was a student surviving on a few thousand pound a year?

2. Status Quo, Torbay Leisure Centre – 12/12/1991

Previously on Sweating With Strangers: young Hodge goes to see Status Quo at Torbay Leisure Centre, drowns in a t-shirt, protects his ears, and falls asleep. That's right folks: second gig, same as the first gig. When you're so young that you're entirely dependent on your parents to take you to see bands, you only … Continue reading 2.

1. Status Quo – Torbay Leisure Centre – 14/12/1988

I did warn you this wouldn't be an entirely fashionable list of bands. I've probably lost myself a large portion of my potential readers by starting at the start, but never mind.
