Trak from Rumble Strips:

We (Rumble Strips) supported Racing Cars at the Friars September 3rd 1977, and they then took us with them on their autumn college tour. We finished up at the Hammersmith Odeon, which was quite something for a little four-piece from Norwich. We used to play clubs that were smaller than the Odeon stage.

RC were really good to us. We always got a sound-check, Mal used to do the lights for us and they were all really friendly. When we heard we were playing the Friars we thought we had made it. All the bands who had played there before; standing on the same stage as David Bowie. Incredible

Some of us are still making music as The Random Acts of Kindness
