Reading 1978 remembered in Uncut

The latest issue of Uncut (on sale now) has a one-page feature on the 1978 Reading Festival, which saw the arrival of punk acts, including Sham 69, Penetration and The Jam at the festival. The article has several eye-witness accounts of the festival and some pictures. Trawl around the darker recesses of the internet and you may find the TV broadcast of that year's festival, too, which is well worth seeing if you get the chance.
