no big hair...

Right, well a review of Tuesday's Elbow gig should be forthcoming tomorrow, but I've been otherwise engaged this evening at the LeftLion pub quiz, so....

In the meantime, I thought I'd share this with you. It's a comment that was genuinely left on the Evening Post review of last week's Metallica gig at the Nottingham Arena:

"in reply to cb........the best 2 bands in the world r guns n roses and metallica and seein gnr at milton keynes in 93(with long hair)was possibly the best day of my life.....the 2nd best day was when i saw metallica at download 2006(again with long hair)....i ve now had my hair cut off as i got it caught in a tractor last september"

Brilliant. It's the human condition, with all of its triumph and disaster, summarised in a single comment. Brian in Grantham - you are an absolute legend and I salute you.

As for the quiz.... well, we reclaimed our crown by the small matter of 8 clear points from second place. To paraphrase the great Severiano Ballesteros, tonight we fuck them.
