Part of the Seven Nights for Nelson festival, marking the end of Nelson Mandela’s 26-year imprisonment.
Very much an Attila-programmed night: him, one of his old Harlow mates, and his then-favourite band. Uber Blyth-fan Chris Braund was horrified, on arrival, to find that it was a seated venue and removed the front two rows of chairs to create a moshpit. Thanks for digging out the flyer, Chris.
A particularly rock ‘n’ roll line-up, bringing together the one-time leader of Gong (Allen), an old busking mate of Joe Strummer’s (Dogg), a poet linked to the anarcho-punk scene (Toczek) and a San Francisco squatter (Plate).
Final London fling for The Dinner Ladies. Porky the Poet was the stage name of Phill Jupitus.
This was an Artists For Palestine benefit.
