It still needs ironing.  Never thought I’d get so addicted to these beads.

The History of Apple Pie - Record Store Day Competition

The History of Apple Pie were holding a photo/fan art contest, so I figured it would be a good idea to build a portrait of them out of Hama beads - lots of Hama beads.
This took way longer than I was expecting, but I’m pretty pleased with the result,

Last night’s backdrops were so good, I figured I’d put up a few more.

This gig was a little bit bigger than the one at Rough Trade last week, and it was probably the best thing I’ve been to so far this year.  It’s almost twenty years to the day that their debut album was released, so we were treated to a special rendition of So Young to celebrate the fact.  Throw in helpings of Trash, Beautiful Ones, Animal Nitrate, Everything Will Flow, Wild Ones, and an encore of Saturday Night, and I left Alexandra Palace very happy tonight.

Pretty sure the lighting was the best thing about tonight’s gig.

I went along to this with low expectations, but it turned out to be one of their best sets I’ve ever seen.  It was a really small and intimate show, but they performed to the crowd of ~300 people as though they were headlining Glastonbury.  Really looking forward to seeing them at Alexandra Palace next weekend.

I was standing right at the back of the upper circle for this one, but beggars can’t be choosers.  It was quite nice to watch a gig from that perspective, actually.  The show was awesome, obviously.

So it turns out my sister is something of an expert at hassling roadies to give her stuff at the end of gigs.  Tonight’s wares: a setlist and one of Kevin’s plectrums.  The rumours about them ending the show on wonder 2 turned out to be true, with Colm joining the rest of the band on guitar.  Such a special evening.
