Richard Hell null n void - (Dont Care collection)
RICHARD HELL & THE VOID- OIDS
THE LOUS
Trinity College, Dublin
The Clash actually manage to kick off their tour tonight accross the border in Eire. However Richard Hell was assuredly in love with the "live fast die young leave a beautiful corpse" ethi, he was not having fun. A 1977 interview with Lester Bangs reveals a pretty tormented individual who really only wants to escape this life. He was doing his best to do just that, as well. Hell's drug habit had only gotten worse. And being booked onto the UK tour, as the opening act for The Clash did nothing to help matters. The harder core of Clash fans, looking for loud rock, had little patience with The Voidoids more sensual songs. The band was unimpressed with the Brits habit of spitting on performers and throwing things. Hell injured himself while trying to shoot up a Mandrax. Sire failed to release the album until after the tour was finished so could things improve? We'll have to wait and see?
