iPad quoting going awfully wrong :slight_smile:

Just remembered my First bought for me album might have been Brother Beyond. Then I got cool (er)

Aquarium - Aqua in 1997 (first one I remember anyway. on cassette)
Busted w/ special guests The Lovebites and McFly @ a field in Broadstairs in 2004. I wrote fanmail for Busted (including a love letter to Charlie and some of my own song lyrics, CRINGE*∞) because I thought that I would somehow be able to pass them to them on the stage, or maybe that I’d be able to crowdsurf onto the stage and give it to them then

Gig - Tura Satana being completely upstaged by Will Haven at Bradford Rio
