Guessing it's just Pipers...

@FenlandGent Best thing I've found in that NME back issue. - on the evening of 24/5/84 Black Flag & HUSKER DU played at "Peter Pipers" in Folkestone

I'm guessing it's a previous name for Pipers but anyone know for sure? I got in touch with @FenlandGent but they had no idea, they were just pleased to see a mention of their favourite bands playing a double bill like that in an old NME.

Anyone out there gigging in the 1980s who might have been at this gig?

It's nice to have a bit more Folkestone gig history anyway.

💬 I was searching for an advert for this gig and came across this post of yours from 2010. I was at this gig with a bunch of mates and have some photo's

This is my site The 'Gerald that I set up in a fury of excitement when I first came to Folkestone in approximately '04. I'd been a frequent visitor for a while before that so I am technically one of those DFLs you get now. This site was updated more frequently with a gig calendar and voting for favourite places + things, + I know it was a useful resource for others who were moving to the area. Now I've moved out of Folkestone again (though just a couple of miles) it doesn't get as much love as it used to. Ironic really as Folkestone itself is now becoming the exciting place we knew it was about to become. I am not Gerald BTW, this comes from the name of a pretend paper in an episode of Brasseye or something, the Portsmouth Gerald, + how there is a local newspaper here called the Folkestone Herald. Puns like this are great aren't they? Do get in touch if you have something to contribute, email anythign @ this domain, or try @folkestone or @pauly on Twitter.
