I saw 999 at the Wynd Tower bar in Fraserburgh about 15 years ago. They were ace. There was an advert for a support band so a few of my mates went in and said they were a punk band and got the gig, then they had two weeks to form a band and learn an hour long set of covers.

You must be thinking of a different gig. The 999 support at the Wynd Tower was semi-legendary 80's Broch punk band Red Brigade. They played their set of original material from back in the day.

Maybe I am thinking of a different gig then! I can only remember watching one punk gig at the Wynd Tower, and it was definitely 999! But I can't remember seeing Red Brigade. My only knowledge of Red Brigade is that giant piece of graffitti on the side of the pill box at the beach.

There was a couple of other punk gigs at the Wynd. The Vibrators and Instant Agony both played there a month or two after 999. Red Brigade only did the 999 one though. The graffiti is ace - built to last haha.

Instant Agony! That's who my mates supported! I must have somehow merged the two gigs together in my head. That's why you shouldn't drink at punk gigs when you're 15.
