July 25, 2006
You often hear people talk about the best gig they've ever been to. Here's three gigs I could have gone to but didn't – more fool me!
1. Nirvana play the Bristol Bierkeller just before they went massive – oops!
2. Sonic Youth Dirty tour – why did I not go to this one?
3. Smashing Pumpkins – crappy nobodies from the states – well, they won't go anywhere will they…
And a notable mention to a school friend who was a massive Morrisey fan – we bought tickets for his solo tour which happened to coincide with the last day of term. Unfortunately said friend got drunk in the afternoon and passed out in a park. We carried him home and left him to sleep it off whilst we all went off to see the mozz. Boy was he annoyed the next day – I believe he may have punched a hole through his door.
Just listening to Loveless which I put on the iPod the other day.
What a great band MBV were. They were the first band I went to see at the Bristol Student's Union when I was a mere sixth former back in 1991.
Great gig notable for being one of the few bands to generate so much noise the sound wave made my clothes move like they were caught in the wind.
Plus they had a flute with reverb – awesome.
