Motorhead - Port Vale Heavy Metal Holocaust 1981
At their prime with a PA the size of a terrace of houses... Bomber lighting rig and No Sleep Till Hammersmith at No1.

Hawkwind - Stonehenge 1984
The gig they were born to play! I learned that only a brave man mixes Nik Turner and acid!

Gaye Bikers on Acid - Acid Daze, Finsbury Park 1987
First time I'd ever heard of them n' they blew me away. The dirty, sleezy early 12" singles Everything's Groovy Baby n' Nosedive Karma are still classics!

The Stranglers - Wolverhampton Civic Hall (1989 or 90??)
Hugh Cornwell's last tour.... still had the same energy as when I saw them in 1981.

Virtually Fat Freez - The Falcon, Camden 1991
A mate's band. Chris the bass player was coming up on acid as they came on stage n' tried to kick a speaker stack over. The bar staff rushed out n' bundled him off stage... prestigious London gig blown, we had to restrain him all the way back up to Norwich to stop him leaping out the back doors of Nick's ambulence!

Rolling Stones - Wembly Stadium 1995
Excellent, just excellent!

Eek-a-mouse - Cleopatra's, Huddersfield 1982 (I think?)
Faith No More - Nottingham Rock City 1990
The Levellers - Cambridge Strawberry Fair 1991
Gong - Norwich Waterfront 1991
Tricky - Norwich UEA 1997
Asian Dub Foundation - Norwich Waterfront 2000
Chemical Brothers - Glastonbury 2000
