Ride, Verve, Mercury Rev, and The Manics in Folkestone

Hmm, bit more gig history confusion... [Ride](http://www.space-trash.co.uk/ride/92.htm This Ride gigography]] says (and not verve, which I got from somewhere). [this Mercury Rev gigography](http://homepage.mac.com/aaront/ride/old/ride/live.html This full Ride gigography played Folkestone on the 21st March, 1992. Now I look into that properly, it says support came from Mercury Rev" title="Verve | The Verve / Richard Ashcroft") backs it up, so does <a href=)," title="Manic Street Preachers | Search the forums for mentions of The Manics...">and they all confirm that the bands were elsewhere on Sunday March 22nd and Sunday March 29th.

Mostly just thinking out loud here, and making notes for next time I can't remember where the info on the site came from, excuse me.

SO, the manics date in Folkestone is still a mystery! Also where did I get the idea that [[Verve supported? Off on another quest...

This is part of my website The 'Gerald that I built in a fury of excitement when I first moved here in approximately 2004. I'd been a frequent visitor for a while before that but I am technically one of those DFLs you get nowadays. The site was a lot more dynamic with a gig calendar and voting for favourite venues and stuff, 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 to Hythe) 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 just about to. My name is not Gerald by the way, this comes from the name of a fake paper in an episode of Brasseye or something, the Portsmouth Gerald, and how there is a local paper here called the Folkestone Herald. Puns like this are great aren't they? Do contact me if you have anything to contribute, email anythign @ this domain, or try @folkestone or @pauly on Twitter.
