Girlinky Log - Popdate 12.03.03

Something about tonight's stint at the London School of Economics doesn't quite add up.

Maybe it's the futuristic Blake's 7 style pipe system vying with the 19th century roots of the place. Or perhaps it's the intimidation of the waist-high iron barriers protecting the bands from the hordes of indifferent students.

Still, Girlinky embrace contradiction like a python with a juicy mouse and emerge kicking and screaming to go off like a firecracker in an empty dustbin.

Trading blows with the pupils, the band manage to learn themselves a bit about fighting. Anyone who says they ain't punk enough should've witnessed Shoutin'-Boy Scott's arc of vitriolic phlegm during Hai Wakarimashita's increasingly obscure ranting phase. Oi indeed.
