Just downloading - my local band! Although I was too little to "catch the Crabs" at the time; still remember the brilliant 'Norfolk'n'Good' (you need to say it out loud to get it) which followed, and of course a little later still when they became Max's new Splodgenessabounds and Willie set fire to his head during 'Ave you got a lite boy?' at Tiffneys.... happy days

Great little set. I've never seen the original LIVE AT THE VORTEX (with Wasps, Mean Street, Maniacs, Neo etc) blogged before - any chance of posting that too? Cheers.
