The Downside of Summer Gigs.....

...is that I realise late last night that a whole bundle of them are clashing with the World Cup.

For instance the Foo Fighters/Motorhead/Queens of the Stone Age gig at Hyde Park clashes with the first Group Match for England.

This leaves me in a quandary. Apparenly a number of the Wireless dates I'm doing are also clashing.

Poo I say to Thee.

Poo indeed. I'm missing all sorts as I'll be overdosing on football in Germany for three weeks. Gah.

I even turned down a ticket to Take That ;-)

**I even turned down a ticket to Take That ;-)**

I almost saw Take That back in '95. Myself and a friend decided we'd hit The Spice Girls, Take That and East 17 for a laugh.

I even got us on the guest list for a Spice Girls gig at GAY but we got sidetracked at a 60's/Indy Club next door and missed the show.

The only one we did end up seeing was East 17 who were, amazingly, very good indeed. Rather worrying in some ways :p

Have fun in Germany. Part of me wishes I was going. But then again part of me is glad to catch the matches on telly/in the pub and also get to a few gigs!

I'm just praying Barnet manage to stay up this year....

East 17 never did it for me...

I'm very much looking forward to the German trip. While the crappy ticketing arrangements I won't be overdosing on live matches to the extent I did in Portugal a couple of years ago (12 matches in a fortnight!), I'm still going to be at four games, and I dare say many more will be watched in a variety of bars and beer tents, and my liver will get a very good work-out...

I'm beginning to be almost hopeful that Wednesday might stay up. This weekend's trip to Crewe will make a big difference - shame they've been scoring for fun recently.

Surely Motorhead wins over football.

Actually Motorhead hold little to no interest for me at all. I don't mind listening to Ace of Spades if it's on somewhere but beyond that I'd prefer to leave it rather than take it.

poo too
This is why I didn't go to Leipzig in Germany this year for the Wave Treffen Gotik festival (yep it's a goth music festival). The thought of sharing Leipzig with beer swilling people with painted faces for a weekend was too much to bear.

Hang on - beer swilling people with painted faces - that sounds like normality...
