    Just going through the Youtube stuff alongside that - this ITV report of the Welling demo looks familiar.

    I can remember going ffs :facepalm: at the description of 'a cowardly mob of extremists'.

    Yea, was there. Terrible music from what I remember.. The Levellers and Manics. I complained all day.

    Was at the Welling demo as well. The bricks we threw were all in self defence at the coppers who were chasing us down on horses. The section of the video were the fighting was going on in front gardens is what I remember most

    Looks like a lot of black entertainers. Did they have any Jewish entertainers?

    Was it? I remember credit to the nation, back to the planet and Billy Bragg. The Manics may have played but I'm sure the levelllers didn't.

    It was a LONG time ago though.

    What matters is he wasn't dead at the time of the concert.

    The Levellers definitely did play. It was a pretty dire lineup all round, although I liked Credit To The Nation back then. The RATM / Senser benefit at Brixton Academy around the same time was better musically, although even that was tainted by Billy Bragg. I swear he was fucking stalking me around that time.

    Maybe it was Billy Bragg instead of the levellers, they both sound pretty much the same to me - fucking awful.

    I do remember the music being a bit poor at these do's. However, it was always a good afternoon. There was one in North London once (for some reason I'm thinking Highbury area but I can't honestly remember) and there was an after party in Stoke Newington that started out as a blues party but ended up being a big rave that went on until Sunday lunchtime.

    Good times!

    I was in the cemetary when the wall came down. Was medieval, mounted police silhouetted on the skyline before charging into a hail of thrown stones.

    My little 14-year old self was there. You can see me jumping up and down in the crowd briefly (to the Levellers). Thing I most remember was half the crowd falling over when a surge happened because we were on a slope.
    I can't abide the Levellers these days.

    I saw Bragg crying, yes crying at Welling because people were resisting police charges into a dangerously crushed area. Jesus.

    I was at welling...I was seen on the news waving a stick and my mum told me off for attacking the police.

    What I had to explain was that the stick was a banner until some copper on his horse charged at me and took the top off it.

    I remember the riot police on the other side of the cemetery wall pushing people back from climbing over. I remember being stuck down residential streets with nowhere to go being charged by police on horses. Jumping over garden fences and walls just to get a breather away from the crowds.....and then jumping back in just to keep moving.

    If you have any more of this its worth donating it to Lambeth Archives. They are always interested in things like this for the archives.

    I remember going to some anti racist thing in Kennington Park, early 90s, Marxman played iirc. My main memory is some bonehead twats on the tube on the way there, then one of them ineffectually tried to punch me outside Kennington tube station.

    DaveCinzano WATCH OUT, GEORGE, HE'S GOT A SCREWDRIVER!

    I recall going to it on my own. Quite enjoyed Urban Species ( :oops: ), African Head Charge and CTTN, and the Levellers too. Some stranger went to great lengths to explain to me why Manic Street Preachers were The Best Band In The World Ever.

    But coming six months after Welling, it felt very tame and not much like doing anything that meant anything, and musically it was less interesting than DUFF or even the Respect free festival, where I seem to remember variously enjoying Chumbawamba, Justin Sullivan and LTJ Bukem (and MC Conrad) at sundry tents and stages.
