day man lost

After a very enjoyable visit last year was glad to make the trek to keep Subvert on the list of excellent underground punk mini-festivals that are scattered around the country.  With a trip on anyway was also able to bundle a couple of the Auralskit members in from Scouseland as well as some other regular reprobates and we were down at venue early evening on the Friday.

Some confusion may have arisen on our drive down to London, (probably due to us drinking Oranjeboom 8.5 on the journey), were we really going to see Bryan Doomich play to 80,000 fans at Wembley Stadium this bank holiday weekend? No, the mists if not the rain cleared and we recalled it was another Scumfest springtime special that we were heading to ,and just coincided with Operation Sealion Part II. Back at the Dome venue where me and Ell had first ventured down to have a mad time at one of these in 2008, the usual ingredients were all there. Some known bands, a chance to check out some new stuff, the DIY fund raising support to give, and general crust punk party times with folks from all over.
