Mayflower Club
31st October 1981

Cant recall much about this gig other than it was a benefit - all other memories welcome. found this in an old box of flyers and tickets from the time.

“i can remember it,pure violence from nazi skinheads.
Annie Anxiety opened up first,left the stage in tears as the violence started,it got worse and worse.
By the time crass came on the violence was all over the club.
These were 20 odd -30 year old big guys smashing people up who were young kids the atmosphere was filled with violence and fear.
The cops ended up being called,some of us ended up being more concerned about being grabbed by the cops for being underage,i was 15 at the time,we hid under some tables so the cops didn't notice us.
I'd just got punched on the side of my head accidentally by a skinhead trying to hit some guy with long hair.
The irony of the above flyer,i think nearly every time crass played the mayflower it was a night of violence.
Doesn't sound like a great nights out but something was special about these gigs even though we could feel the underlying violence about to explode which it always did.
Thanks for the upload,no thanks to the dumb heads who always fucked it all up for everyone.”

“I remember playing there supporting Crass and Poison Girls, not sure of the date but i know it was 1981, i did think this was this date but have since read Crass played there more than once. But there was no violence of what I can remember.”
