10.11.2012 Carter USM, Ned's Atomic Dustbin, Cud - Brixton Academy
Another November, another Carter USM "reunion" gig at Brixton Academy. This was a little better as I got to see Ned's Atomic Dustbin for the first time since the Four 4 Wiz show five and a half years ago - and I got to see Cud for the first time EVER.
Except I didn't see as much as I'd hoped, as I'd gone into Brixton Road to get a burger before the start of the gig, which inexplicably took about 20 minutes to be cooked. I ended up missing the start of the Cud set, which was a shame, as I thought they were really good.
I was upstairs for this one and managed to get a reasonable view right at the front. The Carter setlist was oldies-packed and it was good to hear Alternative Alf Garnett, which never gets much of an airing - it was on the original Rubbish CDS which was the first Carter product I ever bought, in the summer of 1990.
I'm pretty sure GI Blues would have been played at the end of that set. (Just as I'm making my way out - it's a fans' favourite but I just don't like that song!)
Always good to see Ned's Atomic Dustbin too. All in all, a worthwhile night out!
And good to see the Cud video was the most popular of all the ones I posted!

I think I'm meant to do an "About" here but I think you'd be more interested in seeing a random seagull.
