I kind of miss going to gigs. Not that I have stopped altogether, but I no longer get in for free and I no longer live in London - the train journey is not too long but ticket prices keep rising and rising...
Which makes it imperative that I really pick my gigs very cautiously.
When I was a music journalist, I would sometimes attend two to five gigs a week!
Luckily, after several almost gig-free months - unheard of for me! - I now have several ones lined-up.
And I won't forget my camera, next time...
Yesterday, the Arcane Publishing team was at the Shepherd's Bush Empire in London to see PIL (Public Image Limited)...
And we forgot our camera!
Unfortunately, I do not have the time to write a review, but I can tell you that it was a fantastic gig. Great songs, fabulous musicians, great atmosphere... John Lydon - a legend if there is one! - is a very expressive frontman, and actually - some people might be surprised - quite focused and humble.
And what a voice!
And they played "Open Up", Lydon's collaboration with Leftfield, which is one of my favourite tracks of all time!
Here's a video of yesterday evening ... Open Up!
And here's the original track...
I think therefore I write.
