In Sherwood Hall in 1992, we had The Pogues play our summer party. There were about 15 of us who set up the stage and acted as crew for the day.
Several students vacated their rooms for use as dressing rooms but The Pogues’ manager took one look and demanded somewhere bigger, so they commandeered the JCR.
The problem was it contained the TV, on which we’d been hoping to watch the Euro ’92 match, so Joe Strummer let us in to watch it with them!
