More Pics from Gods 2000 and Warm Up Dates

Laurie was in charge of the sound for these dates.

Dave Potts was at the gig at the Dean Swift and very much
enjoyed it.

Beaky wanted another picture on these pages. This time
accompanied by his wife.

I was also asked to photo these people. I can't recall who
they are so I am hoping they will remind me.

After the show at the Dean Swift

Chris likes to obscure photos of Bruce so I grabbed this one
at the Cartoon just prior to sound check

Chris caused Steve the fireman a lot of amusement by arriving
in his casual clothes for the gig. Later he dressed up and wore Jean and a white
T-shirt.

The Troy's are clearly the best dressed people in town

Warming up for the Gods gig.

This fan was fan was persuaded to help Beaky bring some more
Beer into the dressing room.

Street Legal were the band on prior to Mantis and singer Bjrn
Boge was up early to give his voice chance to sort itself out. It meant after
Breakfast he found us having a drink in the the bar (I think we had been to
bed). Mantis were mucking about as usual and he joined in the fun too. He seemed
a really nice bloke. The rest of his band came in one by one and Dennis who had
bought Bjrn and then the 2nd member a drink was broke by the time the fifth
member had arrived.

The Mantis Party that travelled to Wigan. Dennis, Tony, Chris,
Ray (who Dennis kidnapped as we left), Bruce, Tino, Beaky, Laurie, Leon, me

A Security guy Dennis made friends with. He was very camera
shy to start with but Den wore him down as the night progressed.

The record label wanted a photo shoot so the lads just the
Ladies Toilets for the Venue

The woman in the shots were just unfortunate enough to be in
there at the time.

    About

    I have been a Praying Mantis fan since I first heard "Captured City" on Metal for Muthas. Time Tells No Lies has always been on of my favourite albums and I was overjoyed when I first discovered it was out on CD. I didn't know what had happened after the first album until in about 1994 I discovered "A Cry For The New World". I was worried about getting it as I thought it had to be a disappointment but I was wrong. I loved it and have followed the band and maintained this website ever since.
