CAVERN BIG BROTHER
Also starring in CBB4 was the loveable Maggot, from Welsh rap band Goldie Lookin Chain, who have played at the Cavern a number of times. Their funniest Exeter appearance though was at a show we promoted at Exeter University. All went well on the night, but the following day I had an angry call from the University saying GLC had damaged the changing room. "They inflated a bouncy castle used by the mother and toddler group" I was told "and jumped up and punched out the suspended ceiling."
"How did you know it was them?" I asked, having carefully checked the room before I left.
"Because there were slices of spam stuck to the ceiling tiles with 'Your Mother's Got A Penis' written on them!"
This refers to a GLC single of the same name - but you've got to admit its pretty stupid leaving a bouncy castle in the same backstage room as 6 cases of strong lager, a case of cider, two bottles of white wine, three bottles of red wine and a 1.5 lire bottle of Captain Morgans Dark Rum!
