The Obligatory Contented of Hove Thread

We know there is more to life than the music of the Bunnymen. Talk about those other bands here.

Nick (kind of) live streaming from Alexander Palace.

16 quid a pop. Hmmm, shall I shan't I? I spose if I watch it on my phone, from the far end of the garden, and cuddle a warm pint of flat beer, it'll be like I'm actually there?!

Put some wellies on and have a shit in the shed and you could be in Glastonbury.

Let’s be clear: this is no substitute for a Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds gig, with its riotous swagger and the faintly ludicrous spectacle of a sixtysomething man spouting fire and brimstone in a shirt split to the navel. By contrast, this is stately and beautiful, a strange and quietly impassioned showcase for a truly remarkable body of work.

Watched that then, me, the missus and step daughter. Was v good in a lone bloke at piano kind of way, and of course Mrs and step kept talking so was a bit like a real concert. Step said she liked it even if it was a bit depressing, I was going to suggest that for someone with a first class degree in English and a masters in critical analysis a more thorough review might be expected, but didn't.
Covered full range of stuff Inc a papa won't leave you Henry and mercy seat, through to some latest stuff and obvious piano malarkey like ship song and Brompton oratory. My planned drinking competition didn't really work as he only said fuck about three times. Didn't play Stagger Lee, even though I kept shouting for it.
By way of coincidence there's an article on pj harvey in this months mojo....

Lots of things you probably don't need, designed by old nick himself, Warren Ellis plectrum (honestly advertised as overpriced, hoho) porno wallpaper, bags and the usual apparel type stuff. I'll get my coat....

There's a red hand keyring and some badly drawn graphics, and did I mention the porno wallpaper? ic

The over-priced plectrum might have been tempting if it were Blixa or Mick Harvey. Warren Ellis now looks like a Greek Orthodox monk and ain't doing it for me.

His 90-odd year old ma's home now. All over tinternet....., you can find it if you really want it. Is that a toots reference or some other Jamaican, he's gone too. I just turned 60 and my mate, who's sixty one told me it's a dangerous age, but then he'd just had a heart attack so maybe he would say that. Crikey, where was I?
