Pete Kember – Jason Pierce – Pete Bain – Sterling Roswell

This was the night when the South of England was hit by a huge storm. The damage was extensive, with an estimated 15 million trees torn down, and there were several deaths. Pete Bain recalls: “I went down on the beach with Jason, the wind was really strong, I was holding my leather jacket open and trying to take off. It was only when we left that we saw the true scale of the damage. Trees were down everywhere, shop alarms ringing, about fifty miles from Rugby the wind died down.” Sterling Roswell recalls: “The van kept lifting off the road on the drive back to Rugby was really fckin scary.”
