Uni: Simon Read's Party, North Road East, Plymouth - 10th October 1986

It's Simon Read's party in a flat off North Hill in Plymouth. Not much can be remembered about this particular event, other than it was clearly a commission (as otherwise there wouldn't be a whole roll of film devoted to it), the memorable soundtrack involved the only-just-released Beastie Boys' "Fight for Your Right (To Party)" and the night finished off with a sleep on a concrete floor on some thread-bare carpet, under some curtains stolen from the window.

Soundtrack for this album:

next album: Uni: A Party in Snobs Nightclub, Mayflower Street, Plymouth - 18th October 1986
previous album: Uni: Back at Poly and a Trip to Cheddar Gorge, Somerset and Plymouth - 2nd October 1986

80s schoolgirls (not really)

Zoë from Psychology and her friend

Someone gets his pants out

In the kitchen. Note the typical student cupboard: a loaf of bread and a jar of Martmite. And that's it.
