1991, Oxford, Polytechnic University
L’université porte maintenant le nom de “Brooke University”. Jonny était étudiant dans cette école.
Ce n’est pas le premier concert d’On A Friday en 1991. Un journaliste de Curfew était présent et raconte :
En 2001, le même est revenu sur le concert :
On A Friday play Oxford Poly, with Freak! and Death By Crimpers.
Ronan Munro: I remember absolutely everything went wrong, the sound was atrocious, the equipment kept fucking up. Thom was on the verge of having a nervous breakdown onstage. But what made it so incredible was that they still came across brilliantly.
This time I took more notice of the rest of the band. Phil had hair then – quite a lot of hair. Jonny had a real schoolboy spod haircut. He was even more sunken-looking then and looked really ill. Everyone always used to refer to them as Oxford’s thinnest band. I remember thinking They could be as big as Ride.
