Radio Stars: The Nashville, London

Chas de Whalley, Sounds, 27 August 1977

SOME CAME TO catch the Boomtown Rats (who had cancelled at the last moment) but, despite the substitution of Chiswick's Radio Stars, there were still many waiting impatiently to get in long after the fire limits were satisfied and the doors shut. Those out on the street missed a bunch of sharp, hard-hitting New Wavers with a bright Pop Image not so far removed from Slik or Kenny.

Total word count of piece: 325
