Tony Ham….Conflict also played that night.  It was a brilliant night, I’ll never forget it.

Mark Richards… & yeah i bet it was!!

Tony Ham… I like that Conflict were obviously added after the tickets were made and someone has just written them in on this one, they weren’t mentioned on mine. Not a bad line up for £1. Thirty five years ago today, I feel old

Kev Towner… Can’t remember why I wasn’t in Hastings for this. Possibly at Uni. I’ll never live down missing this.

Martin Richter… I remember it well ;-

Lauren Gower… Still got my ticket

Alan Esdaile… Used to sell loads of Crass records. I think we got our stock from Rough Trade. We were part of The Chain With No Name and submitted sales figures for the indie chart. Mind you margins were poor for us, the records had pay no more than… printed on the sleeve. Some were around 76p retail if I remember and probably trade price was around 70p.

Tony Ham… To me mainly!  I’ve still got all my records, price and code stickers still on them too.

Martin Richter… we used to get ours from “rough trade” – buy the NME on a Thursday – look at their advert – send off a letter and cheque and they arrived on Saturday morning

Claire Venner… Yep, me and my mates were there.

Sheida Kamkar… Oh yes was there with Claire Venner

Tony Ham… I’ve got it on CD

Tim Kerrell…I was there luv the CRASS

Martin Richter…  I was lucky enough to see them twice 🙂 Xtra! was a great anarchist rag – the paper for the armchair anarchist and F@CK was good fun too – those were the days
