We were betwixt and between..
Nishe were not headlining.
So the logistics of fitting drum kit and amps..in to a Polo...remains unknown.
We just got in the car.
Set the sat nav
And felt weird about it.
Bereft of our noble role as facilitators.
A lot of any audience for any band begins with family.
Yeah, even Oasis and The Beatles..
But we grew up going to gigs, so there isn't the age divide any more. Old people have a history of mosh-pits and worse, so the idea of us preferring a nice bit of civilised, ordered...relaxing at home in slippers, watching television and thinking about an early night. Doesn't work.
Perhaps it would be better if we were designated as official roadies, and didn't become a part of the audience?
On the other hand, a band is paid 1% of the ticket sales, and a band that doesn't sell 'enough' tickets earn a bad reputation. So the more people who buy tickets the better...and it would be even more weird to sit at the back in case I got in the way of the Dionysian ritual...
Rock and roll...
