Well, quite.

In fairness, though (some of) the Cellino apologists have subsequently decided that they never cared for him after all, there was a good long while whereby every other post was some shite about how maybe he was just misunderstood or not such a bad chap etc. To me, those were repetitive, especially when they bore no connection to reality. It's hard to maintain composure at all times when someone is hurting the club you support and folk who should know better are sticking up for the person doing it.

That's what an Editor is for. Does TSB have an Editor? :D


Well I think they prefer to 'hothouse' new talent in a more organic way! :right:

Enjoy! Seen then earlier on this tour and they are as good as ever - Bang, Bang and Revolution Radio up there with some of their best early releases. One gripe - too much of Billie getting the audience to go "ooo oooo" or similar - was the same on the last tour. You'll know what I mean when you go ....

Ha, I will look out for it. He can get overly 'audience participation' at times. RR album is back to their best after the (in parts) terrible Uno, Dos and Tres (although I love Kill the DJ).
Favourite band, can't wait.

My favorite band too - I am too young to have seen them right at the start of their careers but seen them 3 times now and they were brilliant on each occasion :D

First gig I ever went to was the V festival when it was still at Temple Newsham.
Green Day were on in the middle of the day, it was around Nimrod time. They set fire to the drumkit at the end of the set. What a great thing for a 15 year old to see eh? Proper band.

I was there last night as well and they were very good apart from overdoing the Freddy Mercury singalongs as you say.

I did get to thinking that I'd have preferred to have seen them 10 years ago and in a smaller venue, it was all a bit polished for me. When I saw the Dead Kennedy's at South Bank Poly in the early '80s there was none of this pyrotechnic stuff it was just raw aggression. Having said that for a punk band Green Day carried the Arena and the atmosphere was very good.

Not a sequence I ever thought I'd ever read. While I'm sure Green Day's drum kit bonfire was a spectacle indeed, that you had to endure, at such an impressionable age, the very hell that is V demands my every sympathy.

Well this was when it was in Leeds, so it was essentially Leeds festival with more logos.
I used to go to Temple Newsham all the time cos my grandma worked there, so to see this place I was so familiar with totally converted to the causes of teenage hedonism was a revelation. While Green Day were setting up, the big screen was doing that thing of showing girls on people's shoulders and not moving til they flashed their tits. Heady days.

So Er, I'm at "let's rock Exeter" tomorrow.

Does anyone know what the score is with these gigs (apparently there was one on in Leeds last week) i.e. How many songs does each group sing ?

Followed Big Country tours around the country in the 80s/90s although it's not the same without Stuart Adamson but they were pretty good a couple of years ago when Mike Peters (the alarm) did vocals so I'm open minded. I'm quite looking forward to Hazel o connor too. Proper punk chick in her day. Not sure you could say that about Toyah though

Has anyone seen, "from the Jam"? Any good?

Don't mind a bit of Howard Jones either, most of the rest can fuck off thouhh

'Let's Rock' is false advertising. I saw the lineup for Temple Newsam.

Aye Hadley is here anorl, it's hard to believe how massive Spandau were with music so crass. Nobody remembers now that they started off as an art rock, avant-guard band with some real artistic merit.
