My first gig was Discharge at Bowes Lyon House, Stevenage, I was 14. Hawkwind are the band I've seen the most, 29 times!!!

I couldn't even begin to guess how many bands I've seen over the years, throughout my teens there were fortnightly punk gigs in my home town of Stevenage which was a major place on the circuit at the time. Caught Black Flag and Bad Brains there along with a whole mix of hardcore, Oi, and anarcho bands.

In the late 80s/early 90s I'd travel to London at least once a week to see a band, more often than not I'd do 2 or 3 gigs a week. Stand outs include, "Day Dream Nation" era Sonic Youth, Shellac, Rapeman, Man Or Astroman, The Mummies, Trashwomen, Mule, Palace, Jon Spencer's Blues Explosion, Boredoms, Swans, Jesus Lizard. A mix of garage punk and what was then termed noise.
