- Way beyond the Rubicon
ah, class! Man, I should have known you back then. I had no internet and my mates thought I was lame for still liking the Manics when I should have been solely into, I dunno, Crass and Rudimentary Peni. So glad i'm not still bitter.Smithfield was my first one too. Good craic queuing from 7.30am and all that. A friend of a friend had a go at Dave Fanning in the afternoon (he was wandering around interviewing Mark Greaney) about asking JDB in a tv interview 'Is Richey dead?'.
Went off to Wales with two people I had met on the internet and at Smithfield. We did Llandudno (bit dull if I remember correctly) and Cardiff (amazing - starting with You Love Us set the mood) together and then I went off on my own for two days of Reading. Highlights being King Adora and the Dropkick Murphys apart from themselves.
Fucking Dave Fanning though, christ what a thing to do.
