Why: Ah, the eternal dilemma of the middle aged – what to do on New Year’s Eve? So, with Sonic Youth playing locally (supported by Shellac!!!) I got three mates round and embarrassed my fiancee by doing a fuckload of blow over champagne at ours before getting in a cab.

High: The pounding sound of Shellac, and Kool Thing as the final encore.

Drinking: As above, champagne. Then lager. Lots.

Thinking: Why, why, why aren’t they playing a more populist set for NYE? Turns out it’s probably the last time I’ll ever see them live and there was no Riot, no Dirty Boots, none of the Dirty material I’d loved so much at college….
