Earth 1986

13th October
Brixton Academy, London

Police had banned the event from Chislehurst Caves. With Leigh Bowery, Koo Stark, and John Maybur, this earthy event was a storming success. However, it had a rocky start with the venue being changed at the last minute as the local paper in Chislehurst, Kent, protested against the event being held there, claiming it would “bring AIDS.”

(Jenny Runacre)
