So. A little while back I was going through some old junk and stumbled on a big pile of old concert tickets. As I was flicking through them, I tried to remember which shows were great, which ones weren’t, and why. Obviously, the farther back the show, the less I remembered, so I decided to do some documentation.
This site isn’t meant to be anything more than my memories, and the occasional bit of memorabilia. Some shows I’ve written a lot about, others barely anything- it all comes down to memory folks. Some of them, I remember absolutely nothing of, except that I went. As I write more about the past, I’m realising that I’m actually writing more about what was going on in my life at the time, and not so much about the actual gig. When you’re casting your mind back 10 or more years, it can be hard to remember the details of an hour long show, but it’s amazing the memories it brings up about the time in your life. Who you were living with, going out with, where you were working etc etc.
Some of the shows have pics, vids, text or a combination of all. I’ve only started this in mid 2010, so all of the shows before that are being grasped from the past (and my memory ain’t that good), so if you feel I’ve left anything out, or was wrong about something, be sure to let me know in the comments.
There’s not much in the way of photos pre-2003ish, as my house got flooded and most of my photos were destroyed. And as far as video and audio goes, there’s a bit here and there, but most of it’s quite crap until 2010 when I got a decent camera that takes semi-decent video.
It’s very much a work in progress and I’ll slowly be adding stuff from the past as I dig up old photos and memories. At this stage I don’t think it’ll ever be finished.
Hope you enjoy it,
