I remember this gig being a huge whirlwind of energy, I couldn't keep up with the band or crowd and had make my way stage right to watch from the sidelines. Everything was right for this show, the vocals, musicianship, pure energy, the injection of bme audience members, unity and an exhausting journey through thrash metal, funk rock, jazz, hardcore and some more.
Support for this show was by Derby prog-thrashers The Beyond who confused most of the audience but stole my heart and keep hold of it until this day.
