Moose weekend: Suzanne

Good lord, I'd totally forgotten the Yamaha Band Explosion - a 1991 new band event. If my mind isn't confusing itself, it pulled on the promotion might not just of Yamaha but also Nescafe, back when Nestle were going through one of their attempts to try and convince the kids that drinking cheap instant coffee is a lifestyle choice. The NME were involved, too - a small, glossy magazine promoting the event dropped out of the magazine one week. And, presumably with management happy that the event would have happened any way, it wound up all over the TV and radio. Which is why we now have Gary Crowley introduing Moose, doing Suzanne, at the Marquee:
