Abstract

Hammersmith Palais, London, 1981. Punks, Gothic punks and skinheads crowd the space in front of the stage, chanting. Not from enthusiasm for the movement that integrated Modernist architecture, crafts and design, but for the post-punk band that borrowed its name. Simon, Neil and I walk on stage playing invisible bagpipes. This was how we had started our street clown act for the past few months, with varying responses, but overall earning enough money to live.
