Monday October 28th 2002 - The Kreator gig
Not sure why this is in the Swans section of the site really but today
will be a day long remembered for many thous...well about 82 Swansea
Jacks as today was the day that epic German metal outfit Kreator came
town and stormed the Patti.
by the time Kreator hid the stage at 10.30 me and the Outlaw had enough
and decided to go. This is decision which I know regret as apparently
shortly after we left the General Bob Slipon Zod was ejected by security
for stage diving.
General in his mail below is quite annoyed over this treatment but
I think he is lucky really to not end up in the coed. Let's look at
He paid £11 to gain entry to the gig

Madison Square Gardens! This is the Patti Pavilion and yes it
has a fucking garden too!
in the area we thought it only right to stage a military coupe

Donnington! This is the Patti - Metal at it's best!
look on the security blokes face says it all
Muppet Show provided the entertainment between bands. Suprisingly
nobody used the vantage point to fall to their deaths at any point
