    Ah yes.  There were other festivals outside Devon then.  The usual suspects are here, such as Cardiff, Wakefield and a few at Rare Breeds - you know, the year the bogs were a ditch and some guy fell face (or should that be knob?) first into the nettles (good job there were dock leaves handy), not to mention the Skoda in the tent as well as a barbecue .... a bit surreal, if you ask me.

Personnel Steve Fulcher, Ding Ding, Gazza, Rob Bolt and Skeletor bellowing at Slobby Ray.

Location / Date Rare Breeds BF, Ashford, Kent.  June 1996.
Personnel Retford Dave, Gazza, Nice Hair, Steve Fulcher and Ding Ding
Gen A bit of fresh air from the tent!  Rare Breeds was a bit of a riot that year, what with a Skoda in the tent... and don't mention the nettles by the bogs ....


Location / Date Wakefield BF October 1996
Personnel Skeletor, Gazza, ?, Steve Fulcher, Craig, Ding Ding and Aston.
