The chance to see the flag for free usually only comes around once a year so I was expecting to see a good crowd when I arrived at the Royal Oak. I was not disappointed. The pub was pretty much packed out and most of the usual punk scene faces were present.
Blasting their way through fan favourites like ‘as I fall’, ‘how low’ and ‘football crazy’ and looking like they were having a great time on stage, the band were on top form and the on stage energy transferred itself to the crowd resulting in a great night for all concerned.
Coming just a week before London’s INNER TERRESTRIALS hit the steamboat and not long after STIFF LITTLE FINGERS and THE ADICTS were in town, it would seem any accusations of Ipswich’s punk scene dying are quite unfounded.
