The Glassworks, Mill Bay, Folkestone, CT20 1JG

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...
Union Building, Dixon Road, New Cross, London SE14 6NW [1999-08-26 1999]

Plus The Almighty. I came back from where I was working in Bracknell just for the night for this gig (though it was also Kerry's birthday). Ended up getting thrown out of downstairs standing, where I'd snuck in with an upstairs seating ticket. Tho Portsmouth [1991-02-18 1991]

The remaining members of Queen, Guns'n'Roses, Metallica, David Bowie, Elton John, Spinal Tap etc... not a bad lineup. HELL YEAH I was there, good work Andy scoring tickets for this one. Wembley, London [1992-04-20 1992]

Some special Radio One thing, got a nice freebie from friends I was about to start working with at Channelfly. Green Day picked some kids out of the audience and made them play a song. Surrey Street, London WC2 [2000-09-15 2000]

warm up! 65-69 Tontine Street, Folkestone, Kent, CT20 1JR 01303 858500 [2016-10-22 2016]

A work in progress.
Bought tickets, then remembered it is Tommy's birthday that day too! Bad Dad!
65-69 Tontine Street, Folkestone, Kent, CT20 1JR 01303 858500 [2015-11-06 2015]

Plus the Pale Saints.

I later went on to work with the lead singer of the Pale Saints at, was WEIRD telling him I had got him to sign a poster or something for me at this gig.

We followed the Primitives to their London date a few days later.
Portsmouth [1989-11-20 1989]

I was definitely at this gig, but I was definitely at that David Devant gig too, perhaps one of the dates is wrong, or maybe the times worked out... The Gorillaz show was a late night Fabric, 77A Charterhouse Street, Islington, EC1M 6HJ [2001-12-17 2001]

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. Reading, Berkshire [1999-08-27 1999]

My first gig with, I started work there that weekend. I left part way through the worst ever Stone Roses performance (OK, the only time I saw them). Reading, Berkshire [1996-08-23 1996]

I liked one Godfathers song, and was in London as part of a couple of weeks off work driving round in my vw camper.

I did a full circuit of the circle line as an opportunity for a sit down amid a day of comic shopping.

I did 21 gigs in 21 days around this period, so where are the others? Most of them were rubbish I'm sure but I remember seeing Tripping Daisy, MN8, The Wurzels and I think Underworld at this time.
157 Charing Cross Road, London WC2 0EN [1996-02-14 1996]

PWEI, plus my favourite band of the time Atom Seed.

Can't find the ticket now. Went with Stu who I also went to Nirvana etc with when we were both working at Nixdorf.
Stockwell Road, Brixton, London SW9 9SL [1991-01-20 1991]

Paul Clarke's blog - I live and work in Hythe near Folkestone, Kent. married to Clare and father to two, I am a code engineer, and I do mostly javascript, nodejs, python, ruby, and php. I like pubs, restaurants, home automation and other diy jiggery-pokery, history, genealogy, TV, popbitch, squirrels, pirates ☠, lego, and time travel.

This is my personal blog, so if you search here for pubs or other venues it will only return work pubbing / venues I attended or will go to. Fingers crossed it will return those anyway...If you are interested in a more general search Please try work on Folkestone Gerald, where I list national and even international venues...
