One Question Interviews: Dick Lucas (Subhumans/Citizen Fish)

Dick Lucas [Citizen Fish/Subhumans (UK), singer]

SPB: What is the fewest people you've ever played to? Have you returned to that city or venue?

Lucas: Two!

Citizen Fish headed to Duisberg, in Germany, on a soaking wet day in September 93, on a tour with The Gr'ups from Oakland/SF, and arrived at 'Efendi', a Turkish bar with a hot snacks counter and a stage. We set up, discovered there was no PA, so our tour organiser/driver set off and found one. This took an hour, so we ate snack food and had a drink and waited for the hordes to arrive...but they didn't! both bands played short sets to each other and two punters who had made the effort, and it was all so odd it made it a much more memorable gig than hundreds of others where people did turn up! we blamed the lack of posters visible, the rain and whatever day of the week it was [as you do]. We've not been back there, but its not like they were hounding us to do a repeat...
