25.05.2014 Pop Will Eat Itself - Academy, Islington
Couldn't believe this was the first chance I had to see the newly-reformed PWEI - I'd missed them on their first tour back in 2011/12.
Just like Menswear earlier this year, I couldn't really care that it's not the original band - although I miss Clint at the controls, it's still got the main songwriter and co-vocalist in Graham Crabb and the rest of the band has been really well put together. Mary Byker is a great frontman.
And for a bunch of old geezers they have a hell of a lot of enthusiasm and bounce still left in them. More than me at the moment, anyway.
It was a perfect place to see them - small sweaty club, adoring crowd enjoying every minute of it. A good mix of new songs which are now slotting seamlessly into their set. I must have enjoyed it too - I took five videos.
And this made me laugh - saw it on the drive home while stuck at traffic lights in Shoreditch. We've all wanted to do this, haven't we....

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