Three Tuns Of Tubesnake

21 March, 2009 | Tubesnake Gigs

First time for us at The Three Tuns, Gateshead, Saturday 21st March 2009. Wasn’t too sure what to expect although I’d seen a few pics on various web sites. What a class venue! Black walls with a wall-hugging “Three Tuns” vinyl back-drop behind the band and some nicely supplied in-house lights directed onto a raised […]

Pennyroyal Tea

30 January, 2009 | Tubesnake Gigs

Friday 30th January 2009 at The Royalty in Sunderland. Gigged here for the first time in November and thought it was a class night. Our second visit tonight was even better! Excellent turn out. Loadza room for us and lotza bods giving it some hefty appreciation. Someone even asked me if we did any ‘Rush’? […]

Little Egypt

17 January, 2009 | Tubesnake Gigs

Saturday 17th January 2009. What a bloody great gig! First time at The Egypt Cottage next to the now redundant Tyne Tees TV Studios on City Road in Newcastle-upon-Tyne. The weather was pretty atrocious so I was worried that we may not get a good turnout, plus the pub ain’t exactly town centre and is […]

¿Dónde Está Mi Guitarra?

16 January, 2009 | Tubesnake Gigs

The Market Tavern in Chester-le-Street, Friday 16th January 2009. Great gig at one of the narrowest venues in the North-East (for the audience at least). Chris strangely forgot to bring his bass guitars (Heh! Heh!) so thanks to Lorenzo from The Dark Horses for stepping in with a spare. Another gig where the crowd is […]

El Clarendon En Su Cara

11 January, 2009 | Tubesnake Gigs

The Clarendon in Sunderland, Sunday, 11th January 2009. Class gig yet again at the most intimate venue in the world!

NYE 2008 @ Crook F.C.

31 December, 2008 | Tubesnake Gigs

Thanks to Marshall and Graeme on the door, for continuing to man their posts while ‘on the door’ sales took the numbers attending to just over the 100 required to confirm this gig as a ‘sell-out’. The Unnamed, put out a very strong 45 mins to kick the night off, my personal favourite being She […]

Tubesnake SOLD OUT!

The Lambton Hounds, Pity Me, Saturday 13th December 2008.

Back On Track With Miss Clara

26 October, 2008 | Tubesnake Gigs

Sunday 26th October 2008. An explosive late afternoon return to much more than normality at the re-launch of gigs at The Clarendon in Sunderland. We had a full-house with loadza Clara peeps and rock/punk gods from 1977, The Diamond Dogs, The Creepers and The Glammed. Jeff, running the show from behind the bar, was his […]

The Blyth Spirit

11 October, 2008 | Tubesnake Gigs

Nikhs Bar, Blyth, Saturday 11th October 2008. More like a nite-club than a pub so the place had a really different feel about it. Nicky, the owner, greeted us at the door and explained that the bar’s name came from her car registration N1 KHS. We met loads of new people and some old friends […]

Heart ‘n’ Soul Rally 2008

19 September, 2008 | Tubesnake Gigs

Friday 19th September 2008, Heart ‘n’ Soul Rally, Silver Ring Bar, Gosforth Racecourse. What a great night! The only bad thing about it was missing all the other bands on the bill while being on stage. Tubesnake kicked off at God knows what time, and played ’til God knows what time to to an unbelievable […]

Hearts Of Oak Attack

12 September, 2008 | Tubesnake Gigs

From the first gig at The Lambton Hounds, Pity Me on 12th September 1992 to this gig at The Hearts of Oak in Peterlee 16 years have passed and we’re now on our ninth line-up! We’ve had some excellent nights at The Hearts in the past and this gig was no exception. The venue is […]

Give ‘Em Enough Rope

5 September, 2008 | Tubesnake Gigs

Friday 5th September 2008 at The Ropery in Sunderland. Despite the heavy rain and flood warnings across the North-East we still had an excellent night with a good crowd in, supplemented by a spill-over from a 21st birthday party going on upstairs. Chris commented that his night was … “made even better by having one […]

Turned Out, Tuned Up & Trashed

28 August, 2008 | Tubesnake Gigs

Thursday 28th August 2008 at The Beamish Mary Inn, Stanley. This venue has hosted hundreds of bands over the years and we were gagging for it after three weeks off. Another classic gig at the Beamish was had by all. We ain’t played a Thursday night there since 31st May 2005 and thanks to all […]

Sleepy Hollow

1 August, 2008 | Tubesnake Gigs

Good crowd in at Sleepers, East Boldon, tonight, Friday 1st August 2008. Fullest we’ve seen the place. Good gig, good workout, sure I lost a couple of pounds and Woody, who was particularly drenched, gained a free, dry t-shirt from behind the bar. Thanks to everyone who filled those seats! … Lenny

White Heat

27 July, 2008 | Tubesnake Gigs

Sunday afternoon 27th July 2008 at The Beamish Mary, Stanley. Great return to The Beamish on what must’ve been one of the hottest days of the summer.


19 July, 2008 | Tubesnake Gigs

Saturday 19th July 2008 at The Lambton Hounds in Pity Me, Durham. Tremendous night at the pub where the very first Tubesnake gig took place on Saturday 12th September 1992. I’m the sole survivor from that originating line-up which was a five-piece with two guitarists in those days. Looking at the set list for that […]

Toon Raiders

21 June, 2008 | Tubesnake Gigs

Brilliant night at The Star Inn, Newcastle-upon-Tyne, Saturday 21st June 2008. Been wanting to gig here for ages. Plenty of space on the stage, new backdrop, new lights and basically, apart from a few recognisable faces, a brand new audience. The pub was well full and everyone seemed to really get into the gig. Plenty […]

Howls, Bangs & Riffs

1 June, 2008 | Tubesnake Gigs

Sunday 1st June 2008 at The Clarendon, Sunderland. Another excellent afternoon/early evening gig with plenty of peeps having a good time. The Creepers performed a storming set for an hour before we hit the floor at around 5.30pm. We used their P.A. and most of their gear (Cheers!), added a couple of floor lights, set […]
