Myself and my friend
were walking past the Vale Park when a lady stopped us and asked if
we knew where Friars was. We said we were heading there so we jumped
in at her request and she turned out to be one of the road crew or
from a PA company as we were entrusted with a component from the
mixing desk which we were informed that if we twiddled any knobs,
there may be no gig
As for the gig, I seem to
remember Toyah coming on stage in flame red hair in dry ice. There were
people being dragged out all over the place, dropping through hysteria.
The gig itself was a good one though. I do remember Fad Gadget/Frank Tovey
(RIP) doing a song called Ladyshave whereby Tovey's hand disappeared down
his trousers and then re-appeared scattering some of his erm...man hair.
