The Piranhas played at the Prince Albert last night 18/10/10, first time they have played live in about 30 odd years. Boring Bob Grover and Jonny Helmer were on vocals and guitar and Zoot Alors was on Sax. Unfortunately the other two members weren't present, which is a shame as their drummer Dick Slexia was really good.

They played about 10 songs and it was a good laugh. Anyone else on here go? Any other Piranhas fans?

Feck me that drumming was awful on Tom Hark, robbed the song of all it's energy Shocked Had he ever heard the record before? Laughing I was wounded I wouldn't be able to make the gig until I saw that, now I'm glad I can't......

I'm a big fan of the Piranhas, loved their album from back in the day and it still sounds good today. I don't think it's really fair to judge a band on their first gig back after reforming. The posted videos are far from perfect, in fact the band looked awkward and nervous, but if they find their confidence again they will be brilliant to watch as they were when they were first around.

I dunno, I think The Specials pretty much stormed Bestival a few years back........

Yeah Stevo, The Specials did storm it at the Bestival, well said mate. Let's be honest about it, The Specials are far better musicians than The Piranhas and their music has far more energy. I hope the reformed Piranhas do more gigs and step up to the plate and improve their performances over the course of time. They've got some great tracks that I for one would love to hear played live again... Tom Hark, I Don't Want My Body, Getting Beaten Up, Boyfriend, Tension, Final Straw, Fiddling While Babylon Burns, Love Game and Pleasure are all classics in my book and deserve to be performed to appreciative audiences. I reckon it's up to the band to create the vibe and the energy to feed the paying public and create an atmosphere where people enjoy themselves. Can The Piranhas do it like they once did ? I hope so.
