Spike On The Mic

Squall 9, Jan/Feb 1995, pg. 8.

Whilst animal rights campaigners from all walks of life were making an effort to prevent the export of veal from Shoreham, a row of squats in nearby Portslade-on-Sea were making a unique contribution to the proceedings.

Hanging from the squatters’ windows were speakers broadcasting music to protesters waiting for the next lorry.

At one stage Spike Milligan showed up and, with a microphone fed into the squatters PA system, did an impromptu and from all accounts hilarious, stand up show.
