Down memory lane (music festivals)

I was reminiscing last night, looking back at some of the concerts and festivals that I’ve been to, and some of the awesome punk and alternative bands that I’ve seen in the past (haven’t been to a gig for ages now). The list involves Nirvana, Siouxsie and the Banshees, Bauhaus, Theatre of Hate, Southern Death Cult, Killing Joke, The Cramps, Pixies, Faith No More, Public Image, Nick Cave, Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Iggy Pop, New Order, The Damned. The list goes on, and I’ve posted some of the flyers below. I can’t remember them all, but some other bands I saw live included loads of punk bands such as GBH, Discharge, Broken Bones, and then there was Sisters of Mercy, Toyah Wilcox, Fields of the Nephilim, The Human League, Altered Images, Motorhead. Be interested to know if anyone was at these gigs, or if you’ve seen any of these bands too from an era when music to my mind (and ear) was at its height.

I will forever kick myself for not seeing Nirvana when I had the chance. I just assumed there would always be plenty of time to do it. Man was I wrong.

I won't rub it in, but they were awesome! Just a shame how it all turned out :(
