On Sunday 28th February 1999 M.E.L.T. played their first ever UK gig in connection with Chronicles 99. The concert was organised and sponsored by MTAS and was a roaring success.
A full report will be appearing here shortly along with as many photographs as I can get my hands on.
The gig was held at Edwards No8 in John Bright Street and featured an acoustic set by 'Chamber ' consisting of Marcus Testory - vocals and guitar, Ralph Mueller - guitar, Katherina Kranich - cello and Elizabeth Kranich - violin
This was followed by the main 'M.E.L.T.' set with Marcus this time joined by Frederic Hauschild - guitar and vocals,
Christian Huhndorf - bass and vocals and Arne Klewitz on drums
It all kicked off at eight and ended 2 and a half awesome hours later with a fanastic encore including an amazing rendition of "Sweet Transvestite" from the Rocky Horror Picture Show and the worlds most wonderful version of Goldeneye.
Anyway, as I say a full report will be with you shortly...keep a look out for it!
