shouting "YANNNISSSS" at a blacked out minicab with all windows open on camden road felt good
Although my dad attempted to chat up the bassist from the Guillemots for fifteen minutes. He failed.
probably because 99% of them are witless, talentless chancers.
gonzo's nose would probably twitch a little if i saw joanna newsom though.
Yeah, he was, seriously.
And this guy who was on the phone, turns around and tips his hat like this.
And who do you think that guy was?
The Mighty Duck man, I swear to God, I was there.
Of course you were, you were the one who yelled the Breakfast Clubber's name.
I was like, "Emilio. Emilio. EMILIO!!!"
Yeah I eventually did, but only after I'd gotten tired of raping her.
i see what you did there.
when I shouted "I LOVE YOUR MUSIC!" at the girl from fight like apes after a gig
But more in a hitting on way rather than a screaming teenager way (I'm pretty sure they're just fans).
You sir are A FUCKING LEGEND!"
I pulled the drummer of Editors...nothing since, although if I'd been feeling more vigourous on Sunday at ATP, I probably would have accosted Jens Lekman.
with the girl from Fight Like Apes the other week, we talked about how awesome a bill containing McLusky, Jarcrew and Future of the Left would be.
assuming the band members in Future of the Left wouldn't be too knackered.
Seb Rochford then all of Acoustic Ladyland once I just made a rubbish joke and then we parted.
Cadance Weapon was cool but I was star struck we bonded over acid house.
The Mae Shi are far to friendly to be start struck they even rembered who I was the second time I saw them and went for a chat.
I havent met any big stars hehe
test icicles, and now i chat to him and he lets me in for gigs and stuff, but it did involve me being all fanboy to begin with. ive now calmed down and not made too much of an idiot of myself when i meet him.
i stayed in a hotel room with British Sea Power once, but that mostly involved feeling guilty because i got the bed and Woody slept on the floor :(
with namedrops like that ; )
i'm not really one to fangirl it up, but i was with a load of people off the BSP forum who basically follow the band wherever they go, and we didn't have anywhere to stay. I felt so guilty though! Staring at bands from a distance ftw, i reckon.
i would be terrible in that situation, "Morning, Woody" would be just be too tempting come dawn.
i'd never even thought of that. Actually speaking to them was too terrifying a prospect!
you've taken down the social barriers already : D
my social skills ;)
and i am actually Yan.
is a wonderful place
and my friend said something he didn't like so he was really unpleasant to him. he was nice to me though
definitely age 14 and seeing/meeting the music
my friends and i were *in love* with the music! we thought they were "totally hot," etc. so we saw them play a show and waited around to meet them afterwards. i asked the guitar player for a hug, which he obliged. they were all very sweet guys. my friend started crying with tears of joy however, which was a little over the top but at least i have some humorous memories!
I'm not normally the type to harass people in bands but it sometimes seems like a good idea when the beer's in control of me.
Yonks back I met Andrea Zollo and Derek Fudesco from Pretty Girls Make Graves, and they were both very nice people. Made a bit of a cock of myself in front of Kelly from Johnny Foreigner a couple of months ago though, as my completely linguistic skills deserted me.
But I've never hassled anyone from a band who hasn't been thoroughly pleasant and forgiving.
on this board whenever i see seymourMBA posting. Yeah Seymour!
telling yoni wolf how much i heart everything he has ever done musically and i worship the ground he walks on etc. except not in those words. i think kept my cool. a bit.
i walked into the middle of a conversation betwixt members of Mew in the Rescue Rooms (I think) and said 'I don't think its any exageration to say that you guys are responsible for making me happier than any other musicians ever have ever in the world, even the Super Furry Animals, and I fucking love the Super Furry Animals. Thank you.'
Then I probably smiled and walked off.
I also once went crazy when I ran into David Gower and he looked bemused.
I played pool with McLusky and saw their tour van. Used to see McLusky loads. :(
Not least when quite literally drooling whilst trying to speak to Liz from Ladyfuzz.
I used to send bands the most horribly obsequious emails when wondering if they wanted to contribute to my blog. I think it's to cover up for general floor-staring self awareness driven embarrassment projected when I actually meet them.
made a bit of a cock of myself, again. Haven't interviewed anyone since which gives you some idea how it went.
I met Brian Molko and I thought I was being really cool about it, until afterwards when my friends told me that I'd just been gushing non-stop for about 5 minutes about how brilliant I thought he was. I also once waited outside the Northwick in Worcester for two hours so that I could meet John Power from Cast.
and asked if I could touch his beard and kiss him. He was very pleasant about the whole affair and I ran away happy afterwards.
