It sounds fucking awful though


#42

Zimmer frames are now allowed?


#43

I guess it depends on what night you went. I went on nights where it was more indie stuff going on.


#44

Can sound a bit muddy, this I concede. Actually sounded fine last time I was there for Black Rebel Motorcycle Club however…


#45

This is interesting.


#46

Makes sense.


#47

Anyone old enough to have watched this?


#48

Probably.

I can’t really describe the era - I was a bit off with Prog house, it was more like hand bag house kind of thing. I loathed that scene but my friends were all into it so I went along one night.

It was sort of post Ibiza…all of the guys wore Patrick Cox wannabe’s and wide open necked shirts. Awful…


#49

Whereas I totally ignored that scene, only going to rock’n’roll, indie, garage-rock, punk type things…


#50

Yup…


#51

only at Carter USM gigs…


#52

Are you saying that’s me going over the barriers at the bottom right of the screen at 4:10?

Because it is…


#53

Yep…over the barriers and straight back to the assisted living complex for a cup of Horlicks

*I’m guessing we are a similar age… :grin:


#54

What a gig! Although I was stood well back, nursing one of those two pint pots they sell at Brixton and not getting in all those shenanigans. I know my place!


#55

My first gig was at Brixton academy (rancid in 96) my friend encouraged me to crowd surf, so I climbed up the barriers and jumped, pliers head fast into the floor, spent the rest of the gig concussed in the foyer


#56

Intrigued to know what this means without the typos - or maybe there are no typos :open_mouth:

I got hit by a stagediver at The Marquee (RIP) during Babes In Toyland back in '92. Came to in the foyer and suffered temporary amnesia which was fun - had no idea where I was, who I was with or how to get home. Wandered around for a couple of hours before I rebooted.

Of course the gig is on YouTube, as is everything - probably in here somewhere…


#57

Think I was going for ‘plowed’


#58

The venue isn’t all that, but the slope in the stalls area is something that should be standard in every venue ever.


#59

Looks like it’s been moved to The Garage which is much, much, much more appealing. Might have to get a ticket now.


#60

Sold out due to the venue change :confused: I had the same idea!
