I saw him in a muddy field in Milton Keynes. It was less than enjoyable. Pissed down with rain all fucking day and alt fucking night. The sound was crap and his performance was lack lustre. It's like I went to the only bad show he ever did. I felt pretty cheated.

So then I managed to score tickets to a showcase gig in some really swanky club in London when Earthling came out, and again he was totally balls (although admittedly only played songs from that album which I didn't like anyway). Me and DB are a cursed pairing.

Was Manic Street Preachers at the Brighton centre in April 1997, my sister took me to the seats as I was only 13 and wasn't allowed to stand.

I remember it worryingly well actually, was the Everything must go tour

Was Nada Surf back in 2006 at Shepherds Bush Empire, was a great gig. Support was pretty good, The Feeling before their rubbish 2nd album, and Inara George (of The Bird & The Bee).

It was either Capdown (with bowling for soup :oops:) or Sonic Boom Six and Whitmore at one of the Moon Ska Tours in '02-03?. Good times. Except for the Bowling For Soup bit.
