Jungle afficianados were more commonplace than is generally realized. And if an event was held
in Cornwall, there was always the possibility that one could face ontological erasure at the
hands(?) of the dreaded Owlman.
But I have to agree with you in all seriousness. Squat gigs were a bit more dangerous in the
heady days of Crass, et al, when suffering a beating at the hands of the police or Nazi skins
was a reality one had to cope with...
