Had a great day at Milton Keynes for The Prodigy on Saturday. The gig was fucking excellent, the lighting was brilliant and the setlist was fucking great.
World's On Fire Breathe Omen Colours Poison Thunder Warrior's Dance Firestarter Run With the Wolves Weather Experience Voodoo People Mindfields Omen [Reprise] Invaders Must Die Diesel Power Smack My Bitch Up Encore: Take Me to the Hospital Everybody In The Place No Good (Start The Dance) Charly Their Law Out of Space
Thats the best encore I've ever experienced at a gig, I couldn't believe they brought No Good and Charly back, although I was expecting Everybody In The Place since they played it a few days before. I hope they make this Warriors Dance Festival a regular thing, although there were one or two negative things. The venue itself was the best place I've been too for a gig by a long shot. Absolutely brilliant venue the MK bowl. They didn't really plan it well though, there was only 2 bars either side of the stage and the 3 times I went to it it took me about half an hour to get my first lot of drinks, an hour and a half to get my second lot of drinks and 2 hours for the third lot of drinks. It was an absolutely joke so I endedu p buying 3/4 pints at a time for myself. There was clearly going to be a huge demand for drink there and they should have had more bars. It wasnt slowing people down getting pissed, it was just making people buy a stupid amount of pints at a time.
Another problem was getting away from the bowl afterwards. The police werent letting any taxis near the bowl so thousands of people were walking together trying to get a taxi and it was absolutely ridiculous. Luckily I had a local taxi number which I used a couple of times when I was down there but they were an absolutely joke of a taxi company. Terrible. Took them over 2 hours to come for us so we were stuck in a Premier Inn car park for hours waiting for our taxi while a load of other peopel were next to us waiting for their taxis or just hoping to get one would pass by, and some people gave up and were sleeping rough by the looks of it. So while the venue itself was great, the surrounding areas and just Milton Keynes in general was fucking crap
Didn't have one last season as I couldn't afford the full money up front but still went to all of the matches, just bought tickets match by match. Its gonna be the same this season until January as well, then i'll probably buy a half season ticket in the Gallowgate and renew from then. Fucking loved last season like
I rememeber the bars being shit for Oasis there but not that shit, mind u we were getting 3 pints each so maybe it was that bad.
Where was u getting a cab to? I walked to the train station in 25 minutes after Oasis. Good to have u back Coleman, can u stop posting on other forums and come back home please.
Got a taxi to the Abbey Hill Hotel. Cost a tenner in a taxi so would probably have been a bit of a walk. Honestly though, the taxi company was fucking useless. Not trying to be racist or owt but does a white man work in Milton Keynes, or can anyone understand English there? Apart from the hotel staff, everywhere I went be it a taxi, shop, train station not many of them could speak fluent English like.
I'll be posting a lot more on here now. Theres something about this board which I like a lot more than the last couple and its just got summit about it I like.
axl went wild and was joined on stage by mary poppins for a strange afro carabean version of the classic 1995 hit by abba called "one moonbeam is better than a kick in the bollocks by an angry young elephant"
high point: slash getting a blowjob from a horse during you could be mine
single launch for Glasgow's #1 twee indie-pop of the band of the moment. 1 guy and three mildly attractive girls singing songs about falling in love and so forth. they'll be big. 8.
....it's not often you get a chance to say this but as good as they were, they blown off the stage by the opening act. I didn't know the bloke when he came on stage with his backing band, but he soon grabbed me with his opening song 'Fuck Off'. Sample lyrics - ''fuck off, fuck off, fuck off, fuck off, fuck off''. He then followed it up with an even better song entitled ''126.96.36.199''. Can you guess how that went? He went up to 100 then stopped.
Turns out he's called Martin Creed, who spends most of his time making coneptual art. Won the Turner Prize a few years back. Only does occassional gigs, and was only playing this one as he is/was shagging one of the birds out of the Retro Champs. I don't care much for his art, but his music is 100 per cent fucking brilliant. 10. check him oot: www.martincreed.com/
