Gig 2003

King's Lynn Corn Exchange

The biggest youth music night in West Norfolk proved a massive success as it took over the Corn Exchange in King's Lynn for the fifth year and featured bands from all around the area.

Fifteen bands were included in the line-up on Saturday, mainly of the punk, metal and alternative genre.

It was set up by Norfolk County Council youth and community service, and a panel of young people helped to organise it.

Best bands were Headfirst, a punk band from Walpole St Andrew, who are relatively new to the music scene and made a fantastic debut, including a cover version of popular band System Of A Downs hit single Chop Suey. Wisbech band The False McCoy played a less mainstream set that went down well with the crowd. Heacham indie-rock band Kuda topped the bill with the youth panel and was the last band to take to the stage at 10pm, providing a spectacular finish.

Other West Norfolk bands who played well were Just A Phase, Simple Simon and The Jockstraps, Emanican, Superfly, Porn Star Deluxe, Appleyard and Proletariat White Trash.

More than 200 people attended the event and proceeds will help young musicians to establish themselves and buy new equipment.
