Liz's Party, Abergavenny, Monmouthshire, Wales - 4th August 1990

Liz Sharp - one of Phil's Cambridge Uni chums - throws a party round her parents' farmhouse just outside Abergavenny. It's in the time before Nosher had a car, so there's a bit of an epic of a journey to get there, changing train at least four times - Diss / Norwich / Ely / Birmingham / Hereford (and possibly a few more in-between). It's a great thrash, with an afternoon of setting up, a bit of an all-nighter and a trip to Waitrose in Abergavenny for top-up supplies.
