Goldsmiths College Union Building, Dixon Road, New Cross, London SE14 6NW

Reading warmup, got very drunk on vodka red bulls, fell in a bush,and you can see me on the South Bank Show Special that was filmed there. Off to Reading the next day.

Definitely one of my favourite ever gigs.

I heard about tickets somehow and Clare (who was a student at the time and lived in New Cross went and got the tickets. Was a lot easier than a warm-up gig like this might have been these days!

I was working at at the time and was heading off to Reading the next day. Not sure if I lost my laptop or phone at the gig or if I lost them at the festival over the next few days. One or the other thoug, was a chaotic time.

We had a few drinks before the gig...

I attended this one, more from this year in Paul's gig history for 1999. Part of all the gigs I went to from 1987 to 2024. It's an obvious step from my Best Gigs Ever blog post. Yeah I know a bit nerdy, let's let that go though, I'm having fun reminiscing about these things.

Thu Aug 26 1999

Other gigs at Goldsmiths College I have been to are David Devant + his Spirit Wife (2001)
