I'll be buying the album anyway so I'll wait and hear it all when I get it. I wait with some trepidation, though, because Director's Cut left me seriously unimpressed, Aerial made very little impression and I'm still not sure what to make of Wild Man . AGREED AGREED AGREED. Director's Cut was parti...

And my Mum - is this a mum-specific thing? Well, with the exception of you Mark obviously .... :wink:

She has eye drops and occasionally injections - I hope yours has been caught early enough to avoid those *shudder*.

They played like they wanted to play rather than they had to, even Von..... during Pipeline he went stage right (his left) and was bending down chatting,laughing with someone and when he stood up he started "frugging" (thumbs in belt loops, waggle elbows alternately) along to the song with a fag in...

If you're an old fart (like me) & want a proper pub with good food & real ale, oh, & also somewhere to park for free, you could do worse than the Princess Of Wales - it's less than a ½ mile walk from the Roundhouse. http://www.beerintheevening.com/pubs/s/44/4435/Princess_of_Wales/Primrose_Hill And...

Only just hitting the M25 due to heavy traffic on the M11. I hope the queue isn't going to be as horrendously slow as it was at Brixton. Going to be a good 40 mins before we get there.

Anyone have any info on support / stage timings? I don't think there is going to be a support,there wasn't in Glasgow. Band on half 8 - 9 oclock ish is a guess though. Have we agreed on a pub to meet in yet? Cool beans - just wanted to get an idea about finish times as last tube looks to be 11.29pm.

Re: FOTN / The M*****n Oct 22nd Brixton Academy.

I like to imagine he goes 'up the shops' in that gear. :) You have to admire McCoy for managing to keep the same image for so long, when time has caught up so dramatically with the likes of That Guitarist, Tony James and (whisper it) Andrew Eldritch, but you do have to wonder about the practicality...

I have explained to him that should Mr McCoy ever turn up on the doorstep in the full on Goth Leisure Pirate gear he'll have to go out for the afternoon.... "Goth Leisure Pirate"? :eek: The real McCoy seems to have worn pretty much the same outfit for the past twenty-five years, and I often wonder ...

It might even have been directed at my fiancee who was looking suitably bewildered having been dragged into a sea of Goffs. :lol: You're a braver man than me, Black Dahlia !

Favourite bit of the night was the guy handing out flyers for Whitby Goth Weekend shouting at someone in the queue "Don't look away like you're too cool.

The usual playful banter from Carl, I would imagine ... By that you mean "Thank You. Goodnight" ? If so yep :wink: I always used to assume that this was because Carl didn't want the fans to hear his "A'right, mate ?

Honestly - get over it love, move on! :wink: Thanks for the explanation. If that's the best he can manage after twenty-five years, perhaps he should move on. Still, probably enough to keep to keep the arguments raging over on Sisters Chat for another month or two. Glad to hear the Nephs were on for...

After the first encore Wayne informed us that he would be deejaying at the aftershow party (down the road at the Jamm Club in Brixton), but he that he "wouldn't be playing any Sisters Of Mercy - but nevermind you can see 'em in a couple of weeks can't you?
