Ace Frehley - Astoria London 2008 New York Groove


Far left of the stage just behind the barrier! What a straight ahead down to earth ballsy rock n roll party we had! The videos don't really do it justice, the place was drenched in sweat and the audience was wild, singing along (listen to us, we rocked), punching the air and chanting for Ace...even before he came on stage. Nights like these are rare and this one was the best I've had in years!

The set list:

Rip It Out/Hard Times/Parasite/Snowblind segue into I Want You/Rock Soldiers/Breakout/Into The Void/Strangeways/Medley inc: Torpedo Girl, Speedin' Back To My Baby, Five Card Stud, Trouble Walkin' End of Medley/Stranger in a Strange Land/New York Groove/2,000 Man/Shock Me/Rocket Ride/Deuce/Lover Her All I Can/Love Gun/Cold Gin (with outro to Black Diamond tacked on at the end)

Alan Moore's Essay: Sexism in Comics

I "borrowed" the following scans and text from mechanicaljewel at Live I fondly recall the comic, "The Daredevils" from which they are lifted, it featured reprint comics and new editorial and comic-strip material, notably "Captain Britain". I thought it deserved to go 'viral'. To read the text click on each scan for the larger version.

Invisible Girls and Phantom Ladies: How far have we come?

Back in 1983, Alan Moore wrote a 10-page article on the portrayal of women in comics and the presence/lack thereof of female creators. It was serialized in Marvel UK's The Daredevils #4-6.

It's really interesting to see things like this, written 25 years ago, and to address the question 'how far have we really come?'

British Marvel Apes Colour Pictures

These images were printed on the back cover of Marvel's "Planet of the Apes" comic which was published in the U.K. from October 1974 to February 1977 when it was merged into the "Mighty World of Marvel" weekly comic. The U.K. Apes comic also included some interior black and white text and photo features about the Apes T.V. series that were never published in the U.S. edition of the magazine. I will scan and post these extra text features at a later date...
