Re: Your first cry to a FT song

Hasn't happened yet, but also I keep skipping over Song for Josh. Lost a friend that way last year. Gonna be tough to hear live. It was tough for me that first time live (ever) at The Electric Factory in Philadelphia show #1507. But maybe because more time has passed since May 2012, & perhaps becau...

Re: 2014 Gigs

I think it's more than likely that if I hadn't tuned in to Frank's livestream from Brooklyn April 28th, 2011 I wouldn't have been hooked & dragged into a new thing for me. Only 5 gigs that year to see FT in Kingston, Blissfields & Hammersmith plus Dylan/Knopfler and Bryan Ferry. I learnt that it was...

Yes this is the one I like very much & hoped to hear live in September.

Smart digital tattoo

In response to a design challenge put forward by Co.Design's wearables week, which asked "what things might look like when technology and fashion reach beyond the wrist", design consultancy NewDealDesign came up with "Project Underskin". http://www.wired.co.uk/news/archive/2014-10/08/how-digital-tat...

Re: Swearing

I was lucky to be at a show in Boston last year - it was the 3rd time in 4 days over thanksgiving & I flew home afterwards bouyed up by feel good factor which seemed to build up over successive nights. The Boston show was really special. Sound quality is not the best but I was standing near whoever ...

Re: Sexually Harassing My Way To The Front.

I've been going to a lot of gigs in the last two years & so far (thank goodness) I haven't been on the end of grinding as described. But then the gigs are mostly Frank's or "friends of" Frank's gigs & maybe naively I've felt safe. Also being older than most it hadn't occurred to me that anyone would...

Punk lifestyle 1970s

Ever since I started going to gigs a couple of years ago I've wondered why I didn't have a particularly rose tinted memory of the 70s birth of punk. Not that I didn't absorb some of the music but the punks in the Kings Road were terrifying. Hanging around, looking a bit scuzzy with scrawny dogs on s...

Re: Non-Frank Gigs

First night of the I Am The Avalanche's Wolverine tour at The Macbeth with Turnover, Major League and Moose Blood. Go see 'em on this tour. I enjoyed the support sets and loved my first Avalanche experience hearing their music for the first time. They stepped it up another level. Looks like I'll be ...
