“I think there was another Alexandra Park "festival" in 1978 - I remember Graham Parker & The Rumour and The Smirks being on. I'd place it somewhere around the 13th July as I know we saw GP again a couple of nights later (15th) at Blackbushe.”

“chris hewitt says- yes we had to complete the build of the stage early for the Thursday the 13th as Graham Parker wanted to rehearse for his forthcoming support slot at the Blackbushe concert with Dylan on the Saturday- we took all the stage and backstage compound and generators and PA from Alexandra Park up to Deeply Vale after the RAR concert on the 15th July at Alexandra Park”

“Great event and I find myself thinking about it from time to time. I remember getting backstage and talking to Pete Shelley and Tony Wilson.”
