  1. I looked up Kings of Independence, and may just have to get a copy. It’s got some great bands!
    Ooh, can’t wait to read Bad Seed 😉

  2. I don’t think I have either, Laura. This is very very precious.

    The Kings of Independence tour only went for two gigs, in Hamburg and Bonn. The Hamburg show resulted in riots. The venue was oversold by about 1,000 tickets. The fans outside decided to burn down the Knopf Music Hall in revenge. Backstage conditions were poor – no room for the bands, smoke was pouring in from the fires outside, everyone was on drugs, drunk, and generally out of their minds. Mayhem continued at Bonn, the next day, when most of the band were still drunk/stoned. Mick Harvey gives a pretty interesting account in Ian Johnston’s Bad Seed (220-221).
