I saw Ride in Folkestone in [year]1992[/year], I believe at the Leas, used to have the ticket stub for date but cant help with that.
I also attended the Manics gig in folkestone at the venue that used to be the converted cinema. They had to reschedule the gig as James had a throat infection at last minute, leaving a tonne of Manics fans wandering round Folkestone. The gig was hastily rearranged shortly afterwards but only about 60 people attended as it was short notice and badly advertised.......But was the Manics at their best, did a fantastic gig despite the lack of numbers.
This is my website The 'Gerald that I built in a fever of excitement when I first moved here sometime in '04. I'd been a regular visitor for a while before that but I am technically one of those Down From Londons you get now. This site was a lot more dynamic with a calendar of events and voting for favourite venues and things, and I hear it was a useful reference for those who were thinking of moving here. Now I've moved out of Folkestone again (though just a couple of miles) it doesn't get as much love as it used to. Ironic really as The town is becoming the exciting place we always thought it was about to become. I am not Gerald BTW, this comes from the name of a pretend newspaper in an episode of The Day Today or something, the Portsmouth Gerald, and how there is a local newspaper here called the Folkestone Herald. Puns like this are GRATE aren't they? Do contact me if you have anything to offer, email anythign @ this domain, or try @folkestone or @pauly on the twitter.
