Over at The Kings Arms, Danse Macabre and Penknife Glides, a couple of Akld early 80soutfits, do a joint reunion show,. It's 32 years since they played together, on the Positive Reaction tour (which didn't go so well apparently, and got renamed the Positive Fiasco tour). They were label mates, recording on Mandrill Studios' inhouse label Reaction Records (discography here).
Danse Macabre did a great reunion show in 2005, to celebrate their two vinyl releases finally getting reissued on CD. Daniel Barnes kindly wrote a review of that gig for my blog, read it here.
