We would perform a show with Eric Emerson and then Eric would leave the stage and Link would come on and immediately turn his amp backwards towards the wall and start playing "RUMBLE" ...

Coventry was a big glitter club. I was in a band called Doc West, and we would play at Coventry at the tail end of [the] glitter [movement]. We played on dead nights sometimes for just five people.
