I jeered them because I thought they were shite, Shameless would have been a better band name.Remember that game at Highbury when The Shamen did Ebeneezer Goode
during half time at an Arsenal v City match.
Remember the song being jeered by the majority of the away section. Maybe the City fans present that night were showing that they did not want to condone taking recreational drugs?!
At the time I remember the band saying it wasn't about taking Ecstasy (even though the chorus went something like 'E's are good E's are good'). Some years later however I did read that the singer admitted he was actually high on Ecstasy when doing the song on Top of The Pops!
We played Leicester in the league at Maine Road on Good Friday 1969, when we knew we were going to meet in the FA Cup Final a few weeks later. It was a bit of a gala occasion therefore and I remember there was a marching brass band on the pitch at half time.Remember a plastic liverpool "fan" from school accomponying us to a game at Maine Rd some time in late 80s. He'd never been to a game before and asked in all seriousness if there would be a brass band at HT. As this is what he wouldve seen watching cup finals and internationals live.
