Hello, and welcome to TERRASTOCK III, also known
as TERRASTOCK UK, the London Ptolemaic Perambulation.
Terrastock III took place the weekend of August 27th, 28th and
29th 1999 at the ULU (the University of London), Malet Street, London
The first home fixture for this prestigious event built on the
runaway success of the first two Terrastock festivals, which were
held in Rhode Island and in San Francisco, USA during 1997 and
The three-day festival was conceived in a similar spirit of
adventure and co-operation in order to celebrate the music championed
by the long-running independent fanzine The Ptolemaic Terrascope.
This time we were pleased to be associated with our good friends
at Dreamy Records and Rocket Girl, and with the added bonus of
this being the first Terrastock on home turf, it was even bigger
and if possible even better than in previous years.
Below you'll find a schedule for the festival. Many of these bands
made their UK debut at Terrastock!
TERRASTOCK 3 SCHEDULE
There was a third stage area where people could sign up for and do
their own spontaneous sets or weird collaborations. Audience members
could come and check out the list and see their favourite bands twice
- or just enjoy the total non-organisation of it all. Performers on
this stage included Pat Orchard, Warser Gate w/ Steve Hanson (doing
"Can of Stella Overdrive"), Staff Party (with members of Fuxa,
Azusa Plane, Azalia Snail, Piano Magic, Warser Gate, and a guest spot
from John the stage manager), Petrocat (Nick and Debbie Saloman), Autumn
Leaves, Jamie Owen, Brendan (of Abunai) and Carl (of Windy), Lothars
and Carl, Bevis Frond and Friends (Saloman, Shaw, various Alchemysts
and ROD GOODWAY), and Tom Rapp with Prydwyn. Whew!
