During 1976, an unsigned act in an ice cream van visited a small village called Jacksdale in Nottinghamshire. The town was home to the ‘Grey Topper’, a venue which played host to many up and coming bands during the 70s including The Stranglers.
The long defunct venue is the focus of a new book called The Palace and The Punks which features interviews with many of the bands that appeared there. Jet was very interested in the project and was interviewed for the book. Further details can be found here.
