radio4 is static when you walk away

Mysterious band of mystery: absolutely delightful, and very funny and charming.

Mysterious band of mystery's gig: fucking amazing.

Me: was in a giddy haze of melancholy super-pop, am now a bit knackered and also pissed off because we were forced to abandon our umbrellas at the entrance to the venue and the security people just left them in an unsupervised pile! When we came out some urchins were trying to flog the brollies to us. And my twenty-five-quid Totes one is gone forever. You suck, [big music promoters]!

Holy crap, that is unreal. You weren't allowed to bring umbrellas to an outdoor gig? Any idea if this was in the ticket terms and conditions? If it wasn't, I don't think they are allowed to confiscate things at random. If they're so concerned, they could have had an 'umbrella check' where you check it in.

You should put that thing about the umbrellas in your r*vi*w because it's incredibly shit, and big promoters get away with thieving ticket prices, and then rob you at the gate of shit that you didn't even know was contraband. Someone oughta rat them out. Along with the security guards individually. You just can't do that shit to people. And allowing 'private traders' to steal from you and then sell you back something you already own is, um, not legal.

GRRRRRR....the greed in this country actually pushes me close to tears more often than I care to admit. Confiscating stuff because it's the easiest way to deal with a safety issue? BULLIES do that.

Anyway, on a happier note, glad the super-pop was great! And glad the Mysterious band was good fun in person, too. Phew!

Yay for the mysterious band of mystery! I'm glad it was so good.

Umbrellas: what?!?! Bah.

Those promoters deserve to be pulled up for that. Feckers.

Was the Bob of the Mystery Band there? And was he as cute in person as he is in the Mystery Band photos? And is he, as I secretly fear, a little dimmer than the very articulate skinny lead singer of the aforementioned band of mystery???? And does he have a girlfriend???

I'm going fangirl here!!! Thank god I'll be seeing them in September or I might implode from the questions.

The two people I talked to were the very articulate skinny lead singer and the aforementioned Bob. And he was lovely! Not sure about whether he has a girlfriend, though...

Yay, glad to hear it was all good. Apart from the umbrella fuckitude - what did they think you were going to do, stab people with it?

i've not heard of them, but sounds fascinating and i must check it out!! can't believe the ridiculousness of the umbrella fiasco, though. insanity.

The band of mystery were actually Franz Ferdinand! But I had to be all mysterious about it this week because the forthcoming album was so guarded in secrecy.
