Blurrated10 / 10.0(1)

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 nme.com 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...

Glastonbury 1994rated7.6 / 10.0(1)

My first Glastonbury festival, went in my van, hard to fault the lineup on the NME stage... Blur, Pulp, Oasis, Beastie Boys, Bjork, Manics, Radiohead, etc. Britpop-tastic.

A repeating event...

Reading Festival 1999rated6.9 / 10.0(1)

Blur headlined, not a very strong lineup I don't think. I was working mostly, and managed to lose my first mobile phone that work lent me.
