Photos from Anarchy tour
Approx 100 people in the audience and another 500 outside shouting and yelling ,mostly Cardiff City Fans and valleyheads (heavy metal fans with Black Sabbath/Led Zeppelin t-shirts and denim jackets).
It was like running the gauntlet coming out of that place, but no one was harmed fortunately (A case of their bark was worse than their bite)
Plus the older generation who did'nt understand what was going on and assumed we were all devil worshippers. Some people believe what they read in the newspapers !!
Wrong!!! we were just into fashion and music.
Some of us went to the Park Hotel after the show for a press conference which was in the Observer magazine.They played their hearts out that night with 2 or 3 encores, I think they played virtually every song they knew.There is a lot of video and sound footage in the achives of this show which will probably be found when it's too late (like in about 25 years when I'm dead and gone)
