I've heard this mentioned before, it's making sense now, from this blog:
they made all previous supports seem like geniuses in comparison (and I include Sheep on Drugs at Folkestone Pavilion in [year]1996[/year])
So something happened that night to get them kicked off the Gary Numan tour. So that places them and he in Folkestone, at the Pavilion, in March [year]1996[/year], quite possibly with the lead piping!
This is part of my site The 'Gerald that I built in a fever of enthusiasm when I first came to Folkestone in approximately '04. I'd been a frequent visitor for a few years before that so I am technically one of those Down From Londons you get now. The site used to be a lot more dynamic with a gig calendar and voting for favourite venues and things, and I know it was a handy resource for others who were moving to the area. Now I've moved out of Folkestone again (though only to Hythe) it doesn't get as much attention as it used to. Ironic really as Folkestone itself is becoming the exciting place we always thought it was just about to. My name is not Gerald BTW, the name comes from a pretend paper in an episode of Brasseye or something, the Portsmouth Gerald, and how there is a local newspaper here called the Folkestone Herald. Puns like this are GRATE aren't they? Do contact me if you have anything to offer, email anythign @ this domain, or try @folkestone or @pauly on Twitter.
