Lost bands from Norwich

Writing about web page

Was looking around for evidence of the Farmers Boys, one of the finest bands to emerge from East Anglia (after the Higsons), and came across this wonderful list of just about everyone who has ever played a gig in Norwich.

Am particularly astounded that it includes the Ougadougous who, to my knowledge, were a group of academics at UEA who played at a handful of low key social events and then split up. Now that seems like real attention to detail.

Also delighted to be reminded of the benchmark of ambient sound that is the album Great Lift Journies of Norwich.
