Reading Festival Review - back cover, 3rd September 1994

1994 and another Reading Festival review. Note the Court in the Act column on page 33 as a source of great embarrassment to ET, oh and can someone answer Andrew Mueller’s question/mistaken caption (page 35) “Who the f*** is this?” even if it is 14 years too late. Come on…one of you must have slept with her.

Writers: Everett True, Andrew Mueller, Cathi Unsworth, Caitlin Moran, Sarra Manning, Dave Jennings, Dave Simpson, Ian Watson

Photographers: Tom Sheehan, Steve Gullick,Stephen Sweet, Matt Bright

Those who also turned up to get drunk: Allan Jones, Sharon O’ Connell, Simon Price

If you’ve been paying attention at the back you’ll know this one’s for Alex. Why not follow her on Twitter @loopingtheloop – she has a lovely turn of phrase – which, given she’s a journalist is probably to be expected.

Head like a cold…black as your bathroom mold…

The height of Britpop finds Justine reflecting on success and fame with Simon Reynolds. This is the interview that goes with this cover I’ve previously posted.

There’s a nice companion piece to this, from another former MM journalist Andrew Smith, in this interesting and lengthy Observer interview from 2002, where Justine Frischmann reflects on the aftermath of Elastica and this period in her life.

If Wikipedia is to be believed Justine has recently got married and is now studying visual arts and psychology at Naropa University. I hope she’s happier now.


Some pics from Justine Frischmann’s wedding are up on flickr. Someone posted the link on the Drowned in Sound forum board…so if you’re interested.

It’s on a farm with traditional Japanese umbrellas, and MIA’s the bridesmaid!

‘V-sign of the times’ declares the weak pun as Britpop bites.

I prefer ‘Fuck off my Dad’s loaded’ or ‘2 wraps of heroin please’
