“is this a fake? i dont remember anyone commenting on the date being wrong at the time also I am sure The Worst just turned up on the day and asked if they could play, we said no only because there was no room left on stage for any more kit [The Fall played too] so they set up on the floor in front of the stage with a Chad Valley drum kit and they blew me away. They were the best unrecorded band of the era thanks to Richard Boon messing them about - John Peel offered to lend me £100 to get a record out after he met them on Brass Tacks but it never happened due to RB saying he would do it. Wasn't this gig called ' stuff the jubillee?' Dave Bentley Drones manager”

“I don't know why anyone would put such an obvious mistake in a fake.
This gig took place on Friday 3 June, that same night Eddie & the Hot Rods played the Apollo, happily I was at the Squat!
Busy time for Warsaw, the night before I saw them supporting Johnny Thunders and the Heartbreakers at Rafters”
