From the 1992 vaults

Now this is what I'm talking about.  A clearout of the loft revealed this little gem, a band competition I videoed at London's Mean Fiddler in 1992.  6 disparate bands who all acquitted themselves well, at a prestigious London venue, none of whom have been heard of ever since.  Yes, I even tried googling - nada.

There's so much to enjoy here - the VHS tracking errors, the state of the art graphics and video effects, the inexplicable voiceovers at the start (for which I really should take responsibility - no, I don't know what I was thinking either, but they do have a certain charm).  And then there's the bands, a pleasingly varied and fun lot I'm sure you'll agree.
