I first heard of Horse when a friend off mine asked "Do you want to go to the Tube?" to which there could only be one answer, followed by how? It turned out that there was some family connection to this band Horse and H had been offered 4 places on the bus to go down and support the band on the Tube and knowing of my love for the show, as it was the first place I had seen and heard Billy Bragg I was offered a place.
My lasting memories of the day were:-
- That I didn't really like the people on the bus down, all pretentious Glasgow Uni students who wouldn't buy us under agers a carry out.
- Horse weren't really my bag
- It was probably the worst Tube line up in history, Vow Wow (Japanese Heavy Metal band), Chiefs Of Relief ( Paul Cook and some boy from Adam and the Ants/Bow Wow Wow's band), Horse of course and Janet Jackson.
- The Tube studio was a lot smaller than it looked
- Jools Holland was a cock
Anyway, I was never a big fan of Horse, either the group or when she later went solo. I do, however love this track.
Horse - Careful
