We've covered this before, but it was a bloody miracle that none of my mates were involved. We actually discussed going to the Tavern in the Town that night, but finally decided not to. 

My Mom and Dad were out in Brum that night although luckily elsewhere in town. My Dad was stopped by the Police later that night and questioned when dropping my Mom back at her parents (they lived by Edgbaston reservoir). I think they were stopping a lot of people though in the hope of hearing an Irish accent! 

It was the incident that convinced my Dad to sign up to the force a few months later.

In my head this is a relatively recent album. 

Released 29 years ago today!

You've just reminded me that this is another of those albums that has been lost to my collection over the years. Added to the list of records that need replacing.

Released 40 years ago. It seems mad that one was 29 and the other 40, yet they seem like they were relaesed abosolutely aeons apart. Yet it was only 11 years difference

I'll never forget that night. Most of the country just had rain, but West Yorkshire was in the grip of a whiteout blizzard. My drive home from work - normally 35 minutes - took me six hours. I was listening to the radio commentary on that match during my snow crawl.

I was down VP with my Dad. Can't remember who we played but when we got back to the car, it was the only thing Radio 5 were talking about!

Yesterday:

Quote

Auschwitz survivors return after 75 years for memorial ceremony

More than 200 survivors gathered at the former Nazi extermination camp of Auschwitz, many probably for the final time, to commemorate the 75th anniversary of its liberation.

As rows over the make-up of the international guest list at the memorial ceremony threatened to overshadow Monday’s event, survivors who drew on harrowing memories of their incarceration warned the lessons from the atrocities sanctioned by Adolf Hitler’s administration and carried out often by ordinary Germans were in danger of being forgotten.

Also a thread and a link to a video of the speech transcribed in the thread:

couple of my mates shared a house together and I'd quite often swing by on my way home  .... they would usually have this on the turntable , tin foil with lots of random holes punched in it t over the TV  for a light show and a substance of some description inside them

Drugs weren't my thing but i still used to join them on the sofa staring at the lightshow  ,listening to this album anyway .... so this record always brings back some memories

That was pretty similar to my late teens but Underworld’s Dubnobasswithmyheadman was my mates drug album of choice!
