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.

UPDATE: To celebrate the 20th Anniversary of The Eight Legged Groove Machine, The Wonderstuff are playing the album in it’s entirety for an anniversary party at the Birmingham Carling Academy (30th October) and London Shepherds Bush Empire (31st October).

Jesus Jones will be supporting on both dates. And in a lovely squaring of the circle kind of way both Mike Edwards and Gen Matthews play in Andrew Mueller’s Country & Western band The Blazing Zoos, “an exceedingly confused and angry country & western band” as Mueller himself puts it.
