Hawkwind!
Mar 24, 2004, 03:01
I think one of the best was my first ever - Hawkwind at Liverpool Stadium January 18th 1975- I was a tender 14yr old.

I remember that Lemmy had a faulty lead to his Bass, so a hapless roadie changed it for a more reliable one whilst the Lemm was in mid-thrash and he didn't even notice.

I also remember that as well as the high-pitched oscillations ducked and dived, my ribs were also vibrating in a furious manner to the DEEP Bass Synth squiggles, all while Nik Turner was in a frog outfit going apeshit while Stacia did things to my mind of which I've never recovered.....

Sonic Youth at the Boardwalk in manchester in 1986 was pretty intense as well as euphoric!
