I am off to see some heroes of mine play tonight, Manic Street Preachers at Venue Cymru in Llandudno. It’s always a pleasure to catch these guys, I first saw them play in a pub in Leeds, they were there when I first started seeing Mrs 1537 and for her 40th birthday treat 20 years later. I have seen them when I’ve been on top of the world and I’ve seen had them lift me back up when I’ve been down in the doldrums. I sometimes miss out on seeing them when they play venues that are too big for me, but I usually don’t worry, they’ll be back around again before too many more years pass.
Resistance is Futile, the new LP, has some very good new tunes on but hasn’t really grabbed me yet, this is its chance.
Tonight’s venue is a cracker, on the shore front in Llandudno and I’ll wander along there with a bag of chips as is traditional for me when I go to Venue Cymru before I get in early and get right down on the rail, centre right as I always do. After all, what else would I be doing on a Tuesday night?
See you down the front.
