Putting a 35k rig in St Georges Hall for the first Exeter Respect night and setting lots of alarms off in the High Street as the shops couldn’t deal with the heavy bass, then informing the police that we were not going to turn it down but the shop owners were welcome to come in for a free drink, somehow it worked!!!
