A 49 year-old indie rock fan was the definitely youngest person at a gig in Camden, it has emerged.
Tom Logan looked around the dank venue he first visited in 1986 and found himself surrounded by shaven headed, leather jacketed men and orange haired women typically five or six years his senior.
Logan said: “I expected to get there and have everyone look at me as if to say,’why aren’t you at home watching a murder mystery on ITV3, you sad, pathetic, doughy old man?’.
“But from the granny who rubber-stamped my hand to the hefty 60 year-old geezer who checked my bag and said ‘in you go, sonny’, it was completely obvious I was the youngest person in the venue.”
He added: “I got talking to some guys about the band and they asked if I’d seen them at the Futurama festival in Leeds in 1979.
“When I said I was only 12 at the time, they looked at me like I was Private Pike.”
Logan revealed he also found himself in a moshpit with a prefect from grammar school who had once given 100 lines for running in the corridor.
