£8 to see Aphex Twin and Orbital at one event! You’d probably have to pay ten times as much to see just one of them now. And then it would probably have to involve camping or something.

All I can remember from this is being blown away by the Aphex Twin’s performance.  That proper old school “oh my god that bass and volume has made me shit my pants” feeling. And the stobes. And ‘Didgeridoo’ live.

Again, I’ve got a C90 somewhere of Richard James playing a similar set at the same years Sound City which was broadcast on Radio 1FM.

Utah Saints + Andy Weatherall @ The Zap club, Brighton, 14 June 1993

After seing the Utah Saints support The Shamen at The Event earlier on in the year we had to go down and see them again when they came back to play Brighton’s coolest club (at the time) The Zap.

Back suppporting the Shamen the lead singer Jez performed with a leg in plaster. This time at the Zap they were playing the black and white tiled stage alongside Andrew Weatherall who DJ’d prior to the Utah’s set.

Often ridculed for all the wrong reasons the Utah Saints pulled off a great show and one day I’ll get around to uploading a live set from Sheffield Sound City I’ve got on a C90 somewhere to show you.

While the Saint’s were marching on, Andrew Weatherall stood in front of me chatting to someone about his forthcoming project, Sabres Of Paradise…
