well, go on then. and they have to be good. really good.
i remember this gig as one of the most exciting crowd experiences ever. superdancemania.
was also one of the greatest summer festival pop moments ever, cos obviously no one thought the pixies would ever get back together.
i'll stop now
think my friend might have taken those 2 videos and a few others if you search sonar.
i hate you.
saw a little bit tho, i wasn't as enlightened then as i am now. thus its sad that i didnt get to fully appreciate it and won't get to see him again. same for when i saw guided by voices, went straight over me head.
Reading 2001 - I watched it all as far as I can remember but while sitting or possibly lying down and I only vaguely remember songs they played - it was just after the release of Isolation Drills I think so there was quite a lot off that... all blurred a bit.
I almost went to see Elliott Smith / Grandaddy at the Festival Hall (I think). We ordered tickets and everything. But it was our school open night that night, and I asked our head of sixth form politely if we could be excused from helping out because we had spent Â£40 on tickets. She told us that it wasn't her problem and if we didn't turn up then we'd be suspended. We obviously didnt want to be suspended so we turned up. There was no register or anything, I didnt speak to any of the teachers and I did half a tour of the school with about 10 people all night - there were some people just sitting about doing nothing and loads of people didnt even turn up at all. The stupid thing is, if we hadn't have politely asked to be excused then we could have just gone to the gig and said we were sick and couldnt attend the open day - thats if anyone asked at all. I never did get to see Elliott Smith. I hate that stupid bitch head of sixth form to this day for that fact.
I was at this one...
Big fat head to the right of the ginger bloke = mine
Is this REALLY country rock? The NME seems to think so. (I disagree)
