Why: One of my oldest friends, one-time flatmate and sometime drug buddy worshipped two bands when he was at school: JAMC & The Wedding Present. With JAMC I was with him all the way, having fallen in love with Automatic while at college. So I exploited my middle-aged membership of the Southbank Centre to get tickets for this show under the banner of Jarvis Cocker’s Meltdown.

High: Great seats for a venue not suited to the band, but they did handled it with all appropriate white light and white noise – particularly for Head On at the start and Just Like Honey at the end.

Drinking: Respectably – small smoke beforehand, and a few pints during.

Thinking: I love my friends.x
