Reading 1995


“I think we should get a plaque in the middle of the field. It’s about the seventh time we’ve played there and I’m really happy we’re headlining a tent too. The times we’ve played there in a tent have been some of the maddest and best shows we’ve ever done. We did it in 1995, just after ‘Girl From Mars’ and stuff were big and the place was heaving. There were people climbing up the middle of the tent poles and struggling to get in. It was really exciting for us.”
