Public Enemy, 2003
Even though Public Enemy weren't the force they once were, the idea of them playing a holiday camp, let alone taking over the Queen Vic's sound system is what made those early ATPs at Camber Sands so memorable. Back then other friends of mine also commandeered the record decks after hours and some people I knew never left the pub all weekend.

My photos of Public Enemy's headline set came back terrible as I couldn't keep up with their movement but fortunately when I heard about their DJ set, I was in position with my widest camera lens and a bounced flash. Although it's not Terminator X in shot, DJ Lord's arm and finger frames the picture and connects with the crowd, who admittedly don't look as hip or as enthused as might be expected. Still the photograph shows ATP as it was and that Chuck D really did MC and rocked a mock English pub.
