Hastings surprise..

Every once in a while some unique material pops up on YouTube.
This clip was published by Glenn Veness and features live footage of a spontaneous beach concert that took place in Hastings in 1991 so during the Cooltide era. I don't have an exact date, yet.

Glenn: "John was drinking in the Lord Nelson with the fishermen when, after a few drinks, they talked him into playing on the beach. He played all afternoon for free, and went round with a wellington boot collecting money for local charities. This is a great track from that afternoon called Big Muff."

The intro is hilarious.

Well ya bunch of English bastards. Riight ya want me tae be mair Scottish, is that whit ya wan? A''rrrriiiiight pal, yooouv'e goot it...

Also it is highly amusing to see women and children dancing to the rather unorthodox rhythms produced with the echoplex.
