Folkestone September 1988, was the night which changed my life.
We'd seen a clip of the video for Moonchild on TOTP and then read a brief thing with Carl in Woolworths music's magazine where he listed his favourite songs. And we liked what we read.

Then we heard they were coming to Folkestone which was near us. No one ever plays the south east as we're too close to London, but the Nephs did.

We had no idea what we were in for, so stupidly stood at the front with all the experienced Bonanzas and locals.
When the ice started and the music played the place went mad.

We soon realised we way out of our league and that was even before the band changed tempo during Endemoniada let alone Carl making an appearance.
The whole place was heaving and some were beginning to stage dive and surf the crowd.

Somehow we made it out in one piece grinning like loons and then as we watched mesmerised as Carl appeared and the place erupted. I'd never seen or experienced anything like it in my life. It was exhilarating and you were totally caught up in the spectacle. it was almost like being in a ritual. Nothing else mattered but the music and how it made you feel.

That was the beginning and for four years they were one of the most important things in my life.
Thankfully we learnt to stand at the front to one side by the barrier, so you see everything and dance in relative safety. Standing there you could get swept away to Sumerland....

My first one was recently at Amphi Fest 2017, of many to come... More 2 gigs came last March, in Madrid and Porto, and 2 more are awaiting in the horizon, at Whitby and Manchester in October.
I've succumbed to their magic! :D

By chance my first was at the Cardiff Mars Bar in October '86 - wasn't the greatest gig to be honest, but was interested enough to go to see them again at the Leeds Warehouse a couple of weeks later, from that day on things changed forever, as on that day I met a bunch of guys and girls that for the next few years I would spend much of my life with. Those days, 30 years ago, were very special and magical times - we had little money and few clothes, but we travelled the country (and some of Europe) by whatever way we could to see the band we loved and along the way shaped our lives. From time to time I listen to tape recordings of some of the early gigs and the memories and emotions of those days comes flooding back. Heartfelt thanks to the band, Steve Brown and all the people that made it happen back in the day...
