Gigs were like nothing I'd seen before or since, complete physical and audio assault. Can't say I'd have bought any of their music as it just didn't seem right listening to it at home. Saw a few of the grind core bands like Extreme Noise Terror, Bolt Thrower, Sore Throat, made a change from listening to jangly guitar music which got played a lot where I worked

Was talking to a mate about the Robey t’other day. Were you a Club Dog fan at all?

I remember I had a suede jacket from Camden Market (as you did, then) which was just leather by the end of the evening. One of the daftest, most lunatic events I’ve ever experienced. There were times when you couldn’t see the band or PA at all because of the plague of people stage diving.
