Your first and last live gig

Recommended Posts

I've not been to a big DnB night for quite a while. When I was 18/19/20 used to regularly go and see Micky Finn, Andy C, Roni Size, Hype, LTJ Bukem, etc. Haven't listened to any DnB for a long time, is it all dubstepafied? I fucking detest dubstep.

First DJ I saw live was Nicky Blackmarket. I was in awe of his skills. He praticly spent 20 minutes staring at the crowd and mixed his set with out even looking at his decks.

1st Prodigy at the Apollo in Manchester Music For The Gilted Generation tour 94-95

 

Last was Billy Talent at The Manchester Academy Novemeber last year.

 

Seen loads of local bands though in between last gig and present day.

 

Got Alice in Chains on Monday and QOTSA a week Wednesday, Academy and MEN respectively.

 

EDIT: Tell a lie, it was Band of Skulls at the Academy in Dec last year, which so shit I had forgotten about it.

Alice in Chains were fucking immense tonight. And Ghost B.C. are well worth a listen and watch too.

 

AIC played a vast amount of the back catalogue, Grind being a favourite of mine. Cantrell is a god.

First - think it was Blur back in 1990. They were shite and I preferred the support band who had an absolutely stunning girl as lead singer.

 

The last one was The Prodigy when they toured the 'Invaders'album. They were fucking awesome and I danced like an idiot for about two hours.

 

I really should go to more gigs...

 

The wife went to see Johnny Marr last month with one if her mates and is going to see The Pixies on Thursday in Manchester with the same girl.

 

Lucky cow.

Fuck me that is brilliant. That's like a guitarist playing and staring at the crowd without looking down at the frets.

Just got in from Beady Eye. paul Gallagher played  DJ set before it and walked right in-front of me, I said alright and he looked at me like I was a piece of shit the midget fat cunt. 

 

Liam was on top form and they played great. His big brother needs a slap thought the fat fucking scrounger. He was down as doing a dj set and all he did was stick songs on. and he had white jeans on. worse than cargo jeans in my book. fucking prick.

Nobody knew about Glitter unless you were one of his victims so I will let you off.

 

Was Brucie ever funny? I hate him but that is due to hallucinating with a very high temperature as a child while the Royal Variety was on I was certain he was telling the crowd to come and kill me.

 

I would go and see Quo for nostalgic reasons. And to learn how utilise three chords and make a career out of it.

 

QOTSA at the MEN tonight for me.

No brucie was never funny neither were status quo but i was young and reckless and thought these gigs would put me in good stead in later years with the chicks etc . By the way you had more chance of being touched up by our games teacher who was a rugby fiend and liked the scrum for some reason.

    • Jürgen Klopp has reflected on his life in Football, what makes Liverpool such a good fit for himself and why he doesn’t see himself as special.

      The German entrenched himself further in Liverpool folklore last week when they were officially crowned as Premier League champions after a 30 year wait.

      It was the culmination of a stellar last 12 months which has also seen the club claim the Champions League, Super Cup and Club World Cup.

      In a wide ranging interview with the Mirror, Klopp discusses his love for the game and why being at Liverpool is such a good combination.

      “I love the game so much which is why I had this affection for Liverpool. And when it came up, it was an easy decision.

      "I was hoping the people would be really open for a new guy and I was really open for a new challenge and a new club.

      “And from day one, it clicked.

      “The passion the people have for this club is exceptional. 

      “The way they went through the darkest moments possible - how they deal with it but don’t forget it - is exceptional.

      “I am sure that is why the status of the manager at this club is different to other clubs.

      “I had no idea about that before I came here. People told me about it and I said … ‘yeah, we will see’.

      “And that’s the way it is.

      The downside to being the head figure at one of the iconic teams in world sport is the lack of privacy.

      It is an aspect that Klopp doesn’t particularly like, but has learnt to live with.

      “I am sure that is why the status of the manager at this club is different to other clubs.

      “I had no idea about that before I came here. People told me about it and I said … ‘yeah, we will see’.

      “And that’s the way it is.

      “Not being able to live a normal life is the shadow part.

      “I don’t like it but I have to accept it … (because) my life is too good.

      I am 53, I am healthy, I work for the best club in the world, I earn really a lot of money.

      “Life is not perfect but it’s not for anybody so why should it be for me?”  

      The future status of Klopp has been a massive of great discussion even after he signed his contract extension last year.

      Klopp who undertook a university degree and worked in sports science before becoming a manager has not have a set date in mind but one thing is for sure, he won’t on the bench into his 70s.

      “I don’t see me doing that at that age.

      “When I became a manager [aged 33], I thought … ‘right, now 25 power years start.

      “I was seven and a half years at Mainz, seven at Dortmund and in 2024 (when his current contract at Liverpool ends) it will be 23 and half.

      “I have no plans beyond that.

      “When it is time, hopefully I am still healthy and I can say … ‘great, I loved it but now I would like to watch other people doing it’.

      “So, I hope I find this inner mood to say … ‘see you later, I wish you all the best, best of luck, love you all but don’t call because of any football matters.

      “That’s the plan.

      Despite all the achievements that Klopp has achieved in the game, his ego is well and truly in check and still views himself in a normal light.

      “I am still the normal one, “I. Am. Not. Special.

      “I have a few skills and, luckily, they are needed in football, which is something I really love.

      “But that’s all. I am not special. I am not fishing for compliments.

      “I think I am a good guy, I think I am a nice guy. That sounds boring but it is the truth.”

      Liverpool fans will have to agree to disagree with Jürgen on this matter, he is truly in the special category.
