03:59 pm: Just arrived back from Reading, which I attended with secretlondon Was excellent. Bumped into emmadacockney at St Pancras who kept me company on the trains and train replacement bus service back.

The bands I saw :-

Thursday: went to the Rising Sun to see some random bands. Whilst there met a chap named Pete who knows my ex-colleague Ez who used to hang out there. Small world syndrome!

Friday: Goldie Lookin' Chain (the end of), Wedding Present (again, having seen them at Summer Sundae), the end of the Dropkick Murphies, the Subways, The Coral, Queens of the Stone Age (for the first time since 1999), The Killers, Pixies.

Saturday: All-American Rejects (the end of), Roots Manuva, Dinosaur Jr, The Charlatans, Hot Hot Heat, The Caesars, Sleater-Kinney, part of Babyshambles, Foo Fighters.

Sunday: The Modern (upon the advice of greeba), Art Brut (the third time this year), Hot Chip (again), VHS or Beta, the end of Funeral for a Friend, NoFX, The Stooges, Incubus, Marilyn Manson, Iron Maiden.

Pixies were great. Kim Deal's grin was probably bigger than her.

Foo Fighters also good. Dave Grohl drummed during one song and let Taylor song, which apparently marks the first time Dave has drummed at Reading in 13 years.

Iron Maiden also good! Set consisted entirely of songs from their first four albums, (of which only a few from their 3rd). They have three guitarists now, apart from their bassists, and they run around the stage in formation like crazy people.

May post more notes later. But thoroughly good!

Small world sindrome scares me.

I was chatting with a friend in her living room in southampton on friday, telling her the story about making Pimms in your kettle, when I had it finished for me by someone sitting on the couch who had read it on your LJ.

and I'd never met him before. It was creepy!

I don't remember his handle, and I promissed to friend him. I'm pretty sure his name began with a G and his handle involved the word twiglet. I can't find him listed in your friends, but he clearly reads your journal.
