  1. 16 years old, told my parents I was off to a friend’s house to study for my GCSE’s.
    Instead I went to the hottest gig I’ve ever been to, and had my tiny mind blown with psychedelic wonder.
    It without a doubt opened a door for me musically.
    Sonic introduced Rollercoaster by saying “this is where we’re from” (or similar), and it took me 2 years to find a copy of ‘The Psychedelic Sounds Of The 13th Floor Elevators’. Oh, pre-internet days!!
