Going back to another time and space... the heady days of free festivals, the convoy, 'new age' travelers an' all that...
Focus is on bands who played the festival circuit in the late 80s, leading with RDF/Radical Dance Faction/Military Surplus
The UK free festival scene begun late 60s basically ended with Castle Morton in '92 after which our rights & freedoms were heavily curtailed. Years following Stonehenge 'Battle of the Beanfield' 1985 were marked by clashes with police & political activism in line with the Miner's Strike and Poll Tax riots and were a last hurrah for the alternative lifestyle. Hard drugs also took their toll. Bring back the old freedoms, squatters rights & some of that super hashish!
RDF, RHYTHMITES, ISRAEL MOVEMENT, KING VOLTS, MILITARY SURPLUS, BAD BRAINS, OZRIC TENTACLES, HAWKWIND, CULTURE SHOCK, FUGAZI, DUB SYNDICATE, LEE PERRY, CITIZEN FISH
