28th July 1979

I was at the Gig aged 16, I'm 55 now. I helped clean up at the end of the event. I remember filling black bin bags with Komakino flexi dics lying on the floor thinking 'what a waste'. I think a guy named Rob Crane? thanked me and gave me the posters. There were 2 posters a pink and a green one. A1 size I think. The green one landed on my bedroom wall and the pink one just got rolled up forever. 30 years later I found both rolled up in a cupboard at my Mams house in Blackburn. To my regret, I auctioned the pink one and it went to a buyer in Marseille, France. The green one I framed and currently lives on the wall of my home in Co. Durham. I'm thinking of donating it to MDMA as it's a nice bit of history. The graphics are a bit dull but typical of the time.
