Idle Al Says –
Memory lane time.....Capdown didn't turn up for the gig. I think it was supposed to be Born Idle 1st, then Stockport's Spittin Dummies then the Subs. But the Dummies asked to go on 1st cos we blew them away during soundcheck!

I thought Spitting Dummies played the GBH gig at the Witchwood with us, not the Subs one...? Banjo was 3 sheets to the wind at that 1...!
Al - you designed this poster to look like the Subs were supporting us.......bit cheeky, that ;-)
