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...

Chelmsford [1996-08-18 1996]

Clare was at this one, I was not in London yet. Rescheduled from the 4th of July for some reason.


I loved the 60ft Dolls and would have seen them around this point, saw them a few times. They featured on the cover of one of my fanzines.
