There was a lot of 'urban' (I use that word loosely) music as well.... If we're talking rap then Phil Messenger is responsible for my love of Run DMC, Public Enemy, Eric B and Rakim and loads I can't remember. he was the rap king. I have to say that my early Barnes B exposure to David Bowie, The Cu...

you would appreciate this little fact that a mate of one of my friends is Porl Thompson's brother, and runs Parched Art who did all the late 80's and 90's cure artwork. Undy Vella! Yep still a big Cure fan.... I remember the goth thing being big, but still being in a minority of one of Electronica ...

Fashions in Music at CH

During my time at CH there were a range of musical 'fashions' if thats the right word. For example there was a period when everyone seemed to be listening to Psychobilly music e.g. King Kurt, Long Tall Texans, Guana Batz, Demented are Go, The Cramps and The Meteors (whom allegedly Alison Muir a one ...

Was the midi system a pdp8 or 11 ? I know it was a donation from Ciba Geigy and seem to remember that only 10 people could log on or the 11th timed out while trying to enter their password. God that's a good memory. I remember being very proud when I think i was the (or one of the) first second yea...

Seems a pretty lame "excuse" to me. When I went to Uni I ended up working for a PA company ending up as a monitor engineer and it is trivial to cover the important bits from all but the worst. I think it must have been our grecians when it moved inside (i think you left same year as me) and I am su...

that is why they moved it indoors after 2 years Actually fairly sure it was the uncertainty of the British weather that forced it (or at least kept it) inside. The PA company wouldn't let us use their kit outside unless we could guarantee to keep it dry and we couldn't get any extra cash to pay for...

That car was fantastic although I once remember him pulling up behind me while I was running a steeplechase and then speeding up in order to get me to run. My reaction was to sit down and he gave up and gave me a lift back! Always hated steeplechases.

Given that group of names very likely to be Cath, the only other obvious one missing is Jay. Adam, I stopped going to the NE for a bit, so let's plan around you coming south and then not actually meeting :oops: . I am sort of thinking I wil probably make a 20 year reunion in a couple of years back ...

The bocker ghost in the tube was around in my day, there are loads of ghost stories, some in the sicker, some on big side, in the quad, in the chapel, in various houses but i can't remember the details of any. Harry's alley was known in my time with regards to Harry Spurrier too I seem to remember s...

I used to go for quite a lot of late night walks mainly in the summer though. The one that sticks in my mind is the one that happened after a couple or ten shandys. I awoke one night on big side, slightly confused but none the less alive. I looked at my watch to see it was about 1am and proceeded to...
