I wonder how many of the crowd chucked themselves into the Tyne screaming, once the Cramlington Budgie Strangler got on Stage?

Surely with 'King Crabs' on stage nobody would chuck themselves in. 

Will never forget the first time I saw King Crabs, Sunday lunch time - Benton Social Club - just before the strippers. It was no Big River.

Probably many words wrong but the gist of the 'lyrics' was exactly as he introduced it:-

'Am ganna sing an fxxxxxx song aboot a fxxxxxx man that ganns doon the fxxxxxx toon ta buy a fxxxxxx newspaper...........'

And he started shooting - 'There was a fxxxxxx man that ganns doon the fxxxxxx toon ta buy a fxxxxxx newspaper...........' - never went to see a stripper again!

Maybe lowering the tone but I believe Mark Knopfler played Local Hero.

Surely one of the all time great films.
