The seemingly small and lonely world of faithful Roddy Frame
followers became a much friendlier place on March 18, 2000 when fans
(hereby known as Aztec Anoraks) from all over the globe came by car, plane,
boat, bus and train to London's King's Head pub for a fun-filled evening
of music and celebration.
Over the years many mailing list members and web site visitors have met at various
times and places on an individual basis, but the goal of the Aztec Anorak convention
was to try and pack as many fans as possible into one room at the same time. It was an ideal opportunity for many to get
re-acquainted and, for those people who hadn't previously met, it was a chance to finally
put faces to now familiar names.
Featured performers at the King's Head included Nick, Ben and Neil (sorry, guys, I didn't
catch the last names!), Dan Yechout, Rick Strang, Danny Tennyson, Stuart Matthews and
Ken McCormack. It didn't take long though for everyone in the room to join in somehow,
whether that meant providing backing vocals to the cover tunes or recreating flamenco
dance steps from the "Spanish Horses" video.
A huge round of thanks to all those in attendance, especially everyone who volunteered
their time and talents to make it a great success.
