1st 1984 we bring you the FURYO "Getting Blotto" interview!
Makes for very interesting reading with the new line-up including
the new guitarist, Albie de Luca working on their second album.
Seems the theme for this interview titled "Getting Blotto" has
nothing to do with getting smashed! More... 8 more pics for the 'Faces Gallery'! Sat Jul 08, 2006.

AS A TEENAGER, I LOVED LUTON. THE PUNK SCENE WAS BETTER THAN BEDFORD,
WAY BETTER, BIGGER, MORE ACTIVE, AND IT WAS CENTERED AROUND UK
DECAY WHO WERE WELL KNOWN. More... Marsh Farm festival Wed May 31, 2006.
I happened to come accross the name Toad the Wet Sprocket the
other day and it reminded me of the Marsh House Music Festival....
The first festival that comes to mind featured the Jets and the
Nervous Surgeons. Both bands evolved into the Teevees and Click
Click, although I can not recall the details of the metamorphis.
Although my memory has faded I recall UK Decay and possibly Pneumania
appearing at later versions and possibly the Acme Attractions
and in true festival style at least one of these occassions was
just an almighty mud bath......
On the subject of the Marsh House Farm festival by coincidence
we have been sent a scan of a Luton news article relating to one
of those memorable events. More... The 'Anti-Nirex Tape' ('Dumping it on Parliament') UPDATED ! June 2nd 2006.

further version of the cassette had surfaced so we had a listen
and compiled the best versions for quallity from the original
'Bugsy' version along with the 'new' version. More... Gallery News Thu Jun 29, 2006.
From now on, all Gallery updates will be featured on this post
below. So this is one place you will be able to quickly check
for new images. Previously, depending on what image was updated
a post was made in a corrosponding topic, relevant to the image.
It was logical at first to do it this way, however now there are
now over 600 images in the Galleries and with the passing of time
coupled with the growing complexities of the sub Galleries, for
the aid of easier navigation, we shall now use this post to document
all updates! More...
