Subject: Black Eg

According to Ed :

~either my mailbox got filled up and I missed out or there has been
~a suspicious lack of 'analysis' of the Black Eg concert.
~Does anyone have any opinions or are we keeping quiet for a reason?
~...and "Undrugged", since I *DIDN'T GO*. dammit.

Here's my analysis of the Black Eg concert.
Don't drink too much Grolsch. It makes yer head hurt.

I hadn't heard the Black Eg album, but hadn't really heard good reports of it.
I found the live show very impressive, if perhaps a little samey after a while.
I was also getting very drunk, having already spent some time outside the
Sherlock Holmes with the Von Dämmerung brothers while they were spraying their
eggs. It is quite possible the performance was given under the influence
of spray-paint, but this probably helped.

In any event, I left before the end, nothing to do with the performance but
because the friends I was staying with in London were leaving and I was
probably too out of it to find my own way back.

It was interesting to see some faces to a few of the names on this list. It's
a pity my meeting with you was little more than a brief handshake, but there
you are.

Thanks for the tape, Dave. I was amused to hear myself described as "sick
diseased and bitter" on the WRAS interview.

I apologise to those of you I led to believe that Radio One was to broadcast
the Albert Hall thing. Apparently this was the original plan, but they
broadcast live from Donnington instead. The show was recorded, but I don't
yet know when it's going out.
