Punk band ‘drags town out of the Dark Ages’

Nomad 67 are the big story on the front page of the Ludlow Advertiser. After last week’s article about Nomad being banned from future Streets Alive festivals and the petition from local traders complaing about the ‘ear-splitting racket’ the Editor was canny enough to invite responses when Graham (the band’s manager) questioned the article. The letters (and my email response) have taken over the letter pages and the whole issue has been worked into a very nice article by Michael Baws.

I hadn’t realised that the day was actually called ‘Music, Madness, and Mayhem’! Well, what do you expect then? But this isn’t really one of those Sex Pistols moments. Nomad were not too loud from my position right in front of them and they didn’t set out to annoy anyone. It is great publicity though. Hopefully it will alert all of the youngsters of that area that music isn’t just about the Charts and MTV but that great music is being made by locals bands as well.
