    I actually remember that, the 5 nights thing. In fact that might even have been when I seen them there!

    Was funny after it, everyone standing at the bus waiting for the band to come out, some drunk guy got through the security line and approached Steve Craddock and Craddock skelped him across the head wae a can a lager :56:

    Whole crowd gave an almighty cheer :giggle1:

    Was a weird time for me. In a short space of time OCS became huge (thanks in part to TFI Friday) and sold enough tickets to sell out the SECC twice over and The Prodigy (at roughly the same time) had to downgrade from the Barras to The Arches. * for Prodigy but fantastic for us. Especially as Republica were the support act. Saffron in a mini kilt. Still think of that in the shower.

    That must have been phenomenal man!

    Did you go to gig on the green? My first festival and will never be beat. Primal Scream touring XTRMNTR, Gomez, Fun Loving Criminals, Dandy Warhols, Paul Weller, Shed Seven, Beck...it was * glorious.

    Missed it mate. Can’t mind why either because that is an incredible line up. Gomez might be my favourite band from the 90s. OCS will have something to say about it but you can’t fight love haha. Beck, Weller, Primal Scream, FLC...how the * did I miss that?

    There’s a good chance I was doing a weekender at Aikenhead Road at the time, doesn’t answer why I didn’t have a ticket though lol. Might have been in a lads holiday or something. Some line up though. That’s hard to top.
