:cool:
I wound up ordering this. While I recognize it's a very small publisher, I have to say I'm pretty disappointed with the printing quality. Kinko's-level. Good shots, though.
Inder:
Absolutely. Here's another collection of words:

Table salt (spoon hinge)
Octopus (Ukraine)
St. Petersburg (arms)
Ginger beer (cauliflower)
Pat Sajak (PSak)
Lamp post (self evident)
Florida Timeshare (ditto)
Heraclitus (EMI)
Developers (Developers Developers)
Boogie With Your Children

I'll have to double-check. I only looked at it once, but I believe so.

Marky, I didn't know you went to that show. What were your thoughts?
Look, you have to establish context for these things. And I maintain that unless you appreciate the Fall of Constantinople, the Great Fire of London, and Mickey Mantle's fatalist alcoholism, live Freddy makes no sense. If you want to half-ass it, fine, go call Simon Schama to do the appendix.

I was fourteen and although I was tough little fucker I did feel nervous there was a huge amount of people and everyone was getting crushed. I thought it was poorly planned and the sound was crap at least where I was standing it sounded crap. Joe should never had let Pursey on stage to shout out White Riot. It was my first Clash show and I remember loads of us marching up towards Victoria Park behind RAR banners. Years later I learned Billy Bragg was on that march. Although I thought The Clash were great the sound seemed to wash over in waves. I think the sound improved by the time Tom Robinson Band took the stage or maybe my ears just adjusted.

Here's a great site that can say it all better than I can.

http://www.ukrockfestivals.com/victoria-park-1978.html

It mentions an unknown band entertaining the marchers leaving Trafalgar Square but It was Misty In Roots and The Ruts on that flat bed truck. You can clearly see Ruts guitarist Paul Fox (RIP) and drummer Dave Ruffy in the picture. I think Purple Hayes (RIP) mentioned to me he was also at Victoria Park wish I had known him back then. It was a memorable day and some great bands Clash/TRB/X-Ray Spex/Steel Pulse. I don't remember seeing Patrick Fitzgerald who was probably the first act on so maybe I missed him. I also don't recall the all star jam at the end with Tom Robinson/Aswad/Jimmy Pursey so I most likely missed it having to get back to Paddington for the train.

I just recently downloaded the gig from the megalist hoping for something listenable but it sounds terrible which is a real shame. Just have to make do with all fake Rude Boy overdubbed takes.

That ‘sliding doors’ thing with PH is funny and makes you wonder how often those things happen.
PH and I were both on the beach in Swanage at the Radio 1 Roadshow when TRB played.
How many times did we cross paths in Reading. Or how many times did you chase us around the Butts or the battles st Elm Park.

Yeah I guess we'll never know. I was at swanage in the early 80's and that Road Show was there. I think the DJ was Gary Davis. When I met PH along with Maj for the BAD gig I thought how much PH and I were similar in our attitudes and backgrounds and how we would've been good mates if we'd have met sooner. PH was a real salt of the earth character and I liked him instantly and the same has to said about Murph a real genuine nice geezer.

The TRB show was Peter Powell.
Also PH and I used to drink in the same pub in Ruislip when I lived there and he was in Hayes.

I miss Rob, a top bloke in person and a great poster.
So what does Marconi playing the mamba mean? "Marconi" is referring to the radio itself. It plays a deadly snake. The snake - the mamba - is slithering from the speakers. Ready to kill greedy corporations. Ready to free the world of all that is evil, and to leave behind only the youthful idealism encompassed by the tenets of rock and roll.
