29 Years Ago: MORBID ANGEL, BOLT THROWER, CARCASS & NAPALM DEATH live in Nottingham


At the mid-point of Earache's seven date Grindcrusher tour, four legendary bands live at Nottingham's Rock City.

Morbid Angel - Live, Nottingham Rock City, 1989 (Grindcrusher Tour)

I remember an incident when we played Nottingham Rock City. Dave Vincent had requested a bucket full of maggots which the local crew - all massive, hard-as-nails Hells Angels - had to obtain from the local fishing tackle shop. They were not pleased about this, not impressed at all! We all found this most amusing, which didn't really help matters much, but for the Morbid Angel lads this was all quite normal and what they did at all their shows. I remember Trey cutting up his arms to let the blood flow just before they went on stage and quite innocently asking him, "What are you doing that for?"
