Highrise
Ray 100
The day of the thunder and lightning and the Skatejam with The lead singer announcing ‘we’re all going to die’ as lightning flashed all around – quite possible as the stage wasn’t earthed. Little Joe Zero’s drummer famously played in his underpants at 11pm as the music went on till midnight.The First Music Festival

Legendary Characters
Dog Friendly
The PA and lights were plugged into the café. The first ever band to play were Tattered ‘n Torn – they had to go on early as they had another gig later. I think it was ‘Dead in a Minute’s’ and ‘Tsunami’s only gigs. Ray 100 have now matured into CAV Ok. Dean Hughes, Gutsy and Andy Kearton formed headline band Ritalin who didn’t go on till 11
