New York Dolls The Cluny Newcastle 5 Sep 2010
The New York Dolls played three intimate (for them) shows at the Cluny in Newcastle. The first night was last night (Saturday). Laura and I are went along on the Sunday. We were still recovering from Muse in Manchester the night before, but also couldn’t wait for this.
Just got back. We were right down the front next to the stage. Deafening. Got Sylvain’s plectrum for Laura and she played his guitar! These guys really rock and Sylvain is a real character. It was almost like being at one of the rehearsals with the band trying a few new songs out, before they commit them to CD. In one case they played one of the new songs twice to be sure they were getting it right.
Setlist included (along with some brand new songs):
Looking for a Kiss
Cause I Sez So
We’re All in Love
Private World
Nobody Got No Bizness
Better Than You
Who Are the Mystery Girls?
Dance Like a Monkey
You Cant Put Your Arms Around A Memory
Bo Diddley
Jet Boy
Personality Crisis
