Durham Punk Fest 2009
After the last Stonehenge gig Crass played, I swore I would never perform at a festival again. It took a lot of persuading to get me to Durham and thank the stars I did – it showed me that a festival doesn’t have to be a disorganised shambles; that it can be an enjoyable experience run with precision – no waiting for hours to get on stage because every band has run over time, no smoky fires, no jugglers in baggy pyjama bottoms and above all no bloody bongo drums.
I was talking with Jon Connor the night before the gig and he assured me I would love it, and he was right. I came off stage the next day, put my arm around him and said: “I’ll definitely do this again!”
