V2 music festival, in an old factory building. Bryn was playing in a very small room, sitting in one corner and played
on some sort of amplified tube, with backing tapes and machinery & Bourbonese Qualk : Steven Tanza on drums & Simon Crab on bass.
‘Bryn was so traumatised by the event that he swore never to play live again.’ cf Simon Crab.
