16 Sep 1979 Cricket: The Stranglers & friends v The Media
The Stranglers’ 1979 cricket match against the UK music press, featuring Lemmy and a bag of drugs
"That was a fantastic event. [The Stranglers’ publicist] Alan Edwards came up with the idea of playing against the music press and managed to secure Brondesbury cricket ground in north London. Our team were dressed head to toe in black and wore black pads, black gloves and black caps. We even used black bats."
