I've never done it.
Always fancied going home with both shoes.
Get on with it etc.
Also do people crowdsurf much any more? When I stared going to gigs you'd see it loads. Sometimes a constant flood of people but now you hardly ever see it.
were playing 'place your hands', whilst 'coming up' on legal highs.
Doesn't get more 90s than that.
shortly after, I found myself at the edge of a carpark dancing to a bus starting up, thinking I was in the dance tent.
and being proud because I'd crowd surfed 18 times in one gig.
Bet everyone loved me.
was at an awful pop punk gig (all time low) and was really bored. so thought i';d try it
got on stage, jumped off. crowd parted . landed on one person.a few years later at uni, this girl told a story of some geeky looking guy jumping off stage on her at all time low.
I remember trying to support someone doing it (whilst holding a beer in my hand) at About Time II and completely taken out. I think this was during Joanna Gruesome's set.
more experimental, than recreational.
Tried a little bit during a Mudhoney set at a festival, had a couple of goes during some smaller gigs at local venues, and once was thrust right into it against my will at another show — got caught by the security at the front and almost kicked out of the venue, but managed to convince them that I was an unwilling participant.
at fraggle gigs. Think I might have made a return during Scratch Acid at ATP, but can't properly recall. Everyone else certainly seemed to be.
Interestingly the only time I have ever stage dived, was at a Vic and Bob show.
More kids on the stage, in the air or upside down than watching the show I reckon.
Hi Five, you fucking cunts!
Not really knowing who they were or having heard them on the radio. Turns out they were one of those bands who'd got fucking massive in a very short time, and so had been scheduled for the NME tent half way down the line up, against nothing else. The crowd became stupidly rammed and rowdy. Seriously, the most aggressive crowd/mosh I've been in. For The Kooks.
I couldn't breathe, and decided the only way out was too crowd surf out. I was sailing my way towards the disapproving security guards, feeling rather smug. When someone pulled me down by my boxers, literally tearing them in two, and proceeded to stamp on my head as I hit the deck.
Not dissuaded, I crowd surfed for a second time, eventually finding the barrier, where I collapsed against the barrier. Never really fancied it again.
in the early 90s. I went to see The Sundays in 1993 & someone tried to crowdsurf FFS.
