Massive Attack at Leeds

Category: Uncategorizedash @ 11:26 am

Top gig last night over in Leeds. Drove over after long day at work and then a meeting, and went to visit Phil Broadbent and Katie at their place. Good to see them both, took Phil out for a game of pool & then drifted into town.
Managed to get there just as support band finished, and then remembered what happened when Creed and I went to see them last time – the venue fills very quickly and it’s a manic crush, with people unable to move. As such, was stuck by an exit on the left side of the dance floor, with people walking past all the time.
When the band came on, it got a little better, but was a obstructed view which was an arse. Impossible to get any further in, but the music was awesome. At Angel, a gap opened up by a particularly fine lass, so dived for that and managed to get some space to dance. Only 4 vocalists tonight, guess one of them must have been ill. All the classics played, plus some new material which is excellent. Thunderous bass! Danced like a restricted loon – stunning sounds all the way through.
Had the offer of staying at Ginnys, but was still awake after the gig, so went for the option of the late night and own bed, over the option of early bed and fidhting past Manchester in the morning – made all the more stressful by needing to be on the phones first thing.
Back about 12:30 (ish), collapsed.
