Oh What A Boar!

Roy Hollingworth, Melody Maker, 20 March 1971

SATURDAY morning. The Van der Graaf Generator truck speeds and wobbles along the motorway, northbound. It's a clear day, around lunchtime, and we're beginning to face the realities of the day — helped a little by an icy blast that creeps in through holes in the bursting van. For them a night in Hull. For me 14 hours at the Blue Boar. May God watch over us.
