Crucified on the bonnet of the VW!

One of CA's related groups, Fest were a very early group with an interest in performance art of the more bodily abusive sort. Fest's instruments included Stylophone, Bontempi organ and a lot of pots and pans, tupperware, wooden spoons, etc. A rich farty bass noise was produced by clamping your thumb on and off the plug of an output lead from Ben's box record player. We donned our white lab coats (also favoured by the Snot Babies and CA early on) and shouted ourselves hoarse. Happy days. Tracks by Fest are: Screaming Babies, Self-Mutilation, Electrocution, Kronut and the multi-part nuclear-nightmare epic AtomNoise ('bring out your dead, bring out your dead'). (Gerard)
