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.

So with the breathalyser saying “Cushtie” at about 9am our warm-up of the night before has obviously worn off enough to enable me and Ell to head off to the Southlands. The prospect of a 4 or 5 hour drive might seem daunting to some but as I haven’t been allowed to do much recently I was looking forward to it especially with such an event as Scumfest to look forward to at the end.
