Tonight Gail and I went to see a band call The Bad Shepherds. It was formed by Ade Edmundson, whom many of you of a certain age will remember from The Young Ones. No, not the Cliff Richard film, but the BBC comedy show of the early 1980s. He was also one of the Comic Strip gang and worked on Bottom with Rik Mayall.
The Bad Shepherds play punk and new wave hits in a Celtic folk style. A bizarre combination, but somehow it works. A packed Playhouse audience enjoyed versions of songs by The Jam, Kraftwerk, Squeeze and even the Sex Pistols!
This isn't the best photo I've ever taken. But it's the best I could manage to get. At least it shows what he looks like these days. For something better, try this YouTube video
