    Good work Monuir. I too travelled widely around Europe as a twenty year-old (1986!) but was playing guitar on tour with a punk band so a little distracted... Wish I'd paid more attention like you.

    Hey Stewy,

    The Instigators (from West Yorkshire). As luck would have it we played two nights in Berlin the weekend the wall came down, around 11 November 1989 - I was 23 years old and what an adventure that was...
