Those early Livid festivals where the finest :)

Some of the greatest performances Ive seen were at Livids, always cutting edge right to the end. I was at the first which was such a fantastic line up, to the one Devo headlined in 1997.It was a big festival like the BDO by that stage. Who can forget being up front for Dinosaur Jrn, or one of the best Nick cave and bad seeds shows I have seen, or Siouxsie and the banshees, Michelle Shocked just after Arkansas Traveler was released, so many Clouds shows, or died pretty, Not Drowning Waving whipping up a storm, The Gobs and after they split both Rob and grant solo. Im rambling now I for one would love to see the return of Livid, or something that is Brisbane own!

hi Bob

I've been chasing what I think is the 1989 Livid program ... an A5 booklet ... the cover art was a Livid crowd with one person looking the other way. Any chance you would know someone with a copy I could copy or buy ???
