In Coventry Music DIY from PechaKucha Night Coventry Vol. 26, Steve Weir coins the phrase "a Goldilocks City" to describe Coventry (not too big, not too small, just right) and goes on to describe how this makes it just about the perfect place to put on DIY music gigs. He also throws in a few top tips on how to choose venues (clue: make sure there's booze, toilets and friendly management)

However, it took just over 30 years for him to finally get the guts to live out a rock ‘n’ roll fantasy and form his own band.
