One of the B3ta team danced on stage at the Brixton Academy dressed as an enormous white rabbit, and lived to tell the tale. Confess the stuff – good or bad - you've done anonymously.

Silly Cows.
Those of you that watched Central TV in 1985 may recall seeing on the news a report of hideous acts of vandalism against cows. Or to be more precise someone had gone to a farm that was adjacent to the M5 and used pink aerosol spray cans to paint 'moo!' 'mmm beef' and 'steak here' on the side of some cattle for all the commuters to see on their way up and down the motorway. (Oh - and anarchy symbols on their hind quarters for added effect.)

It caused quite an uproar with villagers from nearby Upton St Leonards with them suggesting the reinstatement of national service or the return of the death penalty for such crimes, and even a local MP appearing saying that the people who did it could cause the death of cows due to stress and poisoning. Utter nonsense of course but great press for Sally Oppenheim for that was her name.

The local papers had much to say about it especially after the following week another farm further down the M5 had the same done to it's livestock, but this time with cartoon cocks, 'meat is murder' and 'meat is yummy' now emblazoned on the poor creatures. One person even said they nearly crashed as they were so shocked too see such an outrageous offence to their sensibilities.

The final act was again one week later - and this time it was not quoted in the press but the cows were now tagged with the words 'eat' 'pigs' and 'instead' as a message of support for the bovines. The words 'fuck' and 'you' were added to two others in the hope that these would stand next to Daisy who unknowingly wore the word 'pigs' - this of course intending to be a message to the Police who would no doubt be called to investigate this heinous crime.

After nearly 25 years I feel the time has come to stand up and apologise to the following:

- any cows that were harmed.
- any farmers who had their livlihood challenged in some unknown manner.
- to the Crass-fan squatters who got raided by over zealous Police who wanted to pin it on them.
- anyone fucking stupid enough to be offended.

In our defence we were very young, had been reading some very odd books, but most tellingly had a freezer full of hand picked mushrooms and had been chomping on them for a good month.

Brass Eye investigation on abuse spay-painted on cows
Were you the inspiration for that Brass Eye episode, I wonder?

That would be brilliant.
I'd put it on my CV.
