The Return of Rock Goddess
Venue: Sala Independance, Madrid
South London NWOBHM legends Rock Goddess warm up for London show with gig in Madrid.
Heavy Metal Rock n’ Rollers Rock Goddess – Turner sisters Jody (vocalist/guitarist) and Julie (drums) along with bassist Tracey Lamb – played their first gigs together for 32 years in Spain at the weekend. To put this in perspective, compact discs were in their infancy back in 1983, and Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg wasn’t even born.
Having announced their reformation and teased fans on social media for more than a year with the promise of a new album (Unfinished Business) and a return to live action, the original trio start to be true to their word playing warm-up gigs in Barcelona and Madrid. Opening with the customary Satisfied Then Crucified, we’re immediately hurled back to the 80s. It seems the Spanish have a love of the NWOBHM, with t-shirts sporting logos of Tank, Tygers of Pan Tang and Tokyo Blade spotted in the audience.
