a tale of two gigs

I hadnt realised it has been so long since my last blog entry…very odd….time just flies by out in the real world, away from the warwick bubble…oh for the long summer days…i was young and restless…and killing time, the summer seemed to last forever, those were the best days of my life…

I do apologise for that…so back to the point of this entry…

I went to see Depeche Mode recently at the newly opened Wembley Arena…I wasnt sure it woudl look any different despite being shut for over a year…but i was impressed…all looks very nice. Outside is SO much better and indoors is just really great. Gig itself was pretty good…Mr Gahan on good form as ever, and still lookign like he will die any second…New stuff sounded awesome. In particular Suffer Well was just…wow….and any gig with Personal Jesus and I Feel You is bound to be good

And then last night i went to see Placebo at Ally Pally…this had a much better crowd…but didnt think the band were even close. Yes there was more energy from the audience…but no banter…no sing alongs…nothing…and Placebo have a habit of havign a lot of songs sounding the same at times….and on the way out i feelyover…stumbled aroudn 15 metres before actually falling…and cut my hand…woooo me…

I am now officially hungry…message ends…

PS I think we should make all clocks metric…10 hours per day..obviously the new hour will have to be 2.4 old hours long…or 144 minutes…but minutes will be changed too
