Rock’n’roll Talent Nite

In January of 1987 the full line-up of SCW finally played another live show – the first since moving to Toronto. The show was at a sleazy nightclub called Ildiko’s above a Hungarian restaurant on Bloor St. in Toronto. SCW played there at the invitation of some friends whose band was also playing. The audience was less than 10 people and they all hated SCW. Unbeknownst to SCW, their friend and collaborators KY and William T. Francis had purchased several pounds of raw chicken feet before the show, and proceeded to throw them at the band during our performance. The club owner was not happy about this.

For this show SCW performed strictly improvised music, using drums, bass, guitar, sax, and other noisemakers.The show was recorded on audio tape but the tape has since been lost.

Here’s a gallery of photos from the show taken by KY
