Went to Cargo in London last night to see the mighty DREADZONE play a very special gig. Only the second time they have played as a full band since the untimely death of guitarist Steve Roberts in October last year. This was billed as a tribute gig to Steve whose guitar took pride of place on stage all night.

After picking up Jan in Gloucester and then Ian and Sally in Swindon we made our way to the big smoke. Long journeys are always better with good company and we had a laugh as we sat in the London traffic itching to get to the gig.

We arrived fairly late and unfortunately missed the support band but Greg Roberts from Dreadzone was DJing with MC Spee by his side pulling funny faces! We met up with some old friends and some new ones from the Dreadzone forum.

The band played a blinding set, by far one of the best I've ever seen and we danced our socks off! There was even a special appearance from ex-member Tim Bran. It ended as always far too soon but at least we managed to have a chat with Dreadzone before we left.

Tea and biscuits at the service station and then we headed off home. What a great night!
