Didn't see any pissed, goatee'd geezer pissing me off.....glad you had fun though.
Saw a pissed off stage manager telling someone (who was haveing lots of fun) to get off her friends shoulders a few times (boooo, hissss) and saw a BIG bearded (Gimley??) sound manager in charge of the boards too.
As for 'phone to PC....if you don't have Bluetooth or E-mail on 'phone then......try hitting 'phone with hammer until small enough to feed into disk-drive......have lots of beer before doing this though !
(or use a card-reader if you saved 'photos onto the 'phones memory card......)

It's a pity that it being too quiet is enough to ruin it for some people. For me it was a pleasant change. I was expecting it after London but my hearing is screwed anyway. I thought Killing Joke were quiet in Cambridge but my wife told me they weren't :?

Just heard from someone on another site (I know.. :lol: ) who saw them for them for the first time in years (since 90 I think). Anyway, the gig was "top form, loud & clear and perfect".
Why is it the venue is always full at the end of the night when everyone apparently left cos of the sound?!?

& I want a pool rematch! :D

didn't i beat everyone that night? ;D
yes,this review of the evening is a tad late but my memory of it is crystal clear (unlike leeds) and untainted by personal shit (unlike nottingham).

first off, the cunts who drew the map on the back of the ticket need broken glass force-fed to them for the rest of their lives as it misleadingly showed a b-road 17 miles from norwich as being around the corner from UEA....so twatto here (already running late due to the weather) had to do a ridiculously illegal speed down the windiest numpty lane in the flatlands to ensure i arrived on time. fortunately being full of a different kind of "distance over time" i got there before the doors opened and, thanks to better placed HLers (czuzu,cell three and burn) managed to jump 3/4 of the fairly long queue.
after looking nothing like keith out of the prodigy (by no means the first time anyone's said that) i was bought the first of many "only one,i'm driving" drinks and said brief hellos to (amongst others) emily strange and bof; the latter's comment earlier in this thread about the support band being spot-on (not sure if i caught them much in leeds.)

so- the main event: after standing front-row ben-side at leeds i took the front-row extreme chris-side (in front of von is far too near our friend with the mini-disc for me to bawl along to every song). mr.catalyst is a true performer, giving it his all jumping around and posturing whilst looking like he was having the best time. the band played as well if not better than at leeds and the sound was clear, just not very loud.there were a bunch of dickheads somewhere around the centre whose brainless heckling during the songs could be heard but the band was still perfectly audible. mr catalyst forgot that there was a third verse to "this corrosion" and eldritch kindly backed him up making the end refrain the longest ever ; but apart from that there were no howling gaffs. the "new stuff" is familiar to most of us here but again, to those who it wasn't i have to say "shut the f**k up and listen". it's certainly strong enough live to stand up against the "classics"; in fact i would be disappointed if they didn't play "summer" "crash and burn" and "susanne".
when they came back on for the encore i tried to blag a fag off of chris and was told to fuck off in the nicest possible way, which i thought was cool. however not as cool as getting a setlist which i later got signed by chris and ben in the bar after. lovely blokes both of them; and after i'd fucked off some stupid groupie-types who were wittering on at them about hairspray or something equally vaccuous, chris chatted to us for ages -even after we'd all been thrown out because the place had closed.

to all the other HLers whose names i've not mentioned (andrew s,eva - there were a few of us i'm sure! ) good to see you all again or to have met you depending which was the case. to the two sisters' guitarists thank you for being humble enough to talk to us and genuinely chuffed when i said i thought it was the best live line-up since gary marx left.which it is. :von:
