Why: Whenever they play London, I’m there with the same friend… And this time we took the old school friend of mine who’d first introduced us back in the mid-90s when we all worked together. I’ve already written about the Bizarro tour, but this was playing all of George Best, in a good venue with relatively cheap beer. What’s not to like?

High: My Favourite Dress

Drinking: Cheap student lager.

Thinking: Christ, do we look as old as everyone else here?

Why: As I’ve said elsewhere, one of my best friends worshipped this band when at school. To me, they were always a Northern indy band and as such not a pure teenage passion, but in the year that my friend and I lived together  they were always on: in the car; in the flat; getting high and getting drunk, I came to get the point.

Everytime they’ve played since we try to see them, and this was particularly special – the anniversary tour for Bizarro.

High: Brassneck. Always Brassneck.

Drinking: So much that I’m having problems trying to even remember this show, which – given how recent it was – gives me some cause for concern.

Thinking: How can he still play guitar that fast?
