Apart from the mud this was the infamous Reading Festival where ET pushed Kurt onto the stage in a wheelchair. Has the story of how and why that came about been told already? If so please post a link and if not then can I tempt the story from the horse’s mouth?

UPDATE: Discussion about Reading and particularly this Reading Festival over on the WSC message board prompted by Simon Price considering breaking a 21 year attendance record.

Fatima Mansions live at the Limelight Club June 15th 1991

Andrew Mueller reviews Fatima Mansions at the Limelight Club, Belfast. Taken from Melody Maker June 15th 1991.

After recent pieces from Stubbs and Reynolds it seems only fitting to complete the triumvirate with something from Mueller. It’s amused me to read this on Wikipedia outlining Triumvirate “though the three are usually equal on paper, in reality this is rarely the case”

Others will be much better placed to tell me but from my memory wasn’t Andrew Mueller the most consistently funny of the three? Naturally, if any of the individuals in question want to pitch in to set the record straight with some retrospective analysis they’d be most welcome – as is the traffic Simon – thanks.
