Thanks hummingbird! Yeah, the crowd were a bit scary on Saturday. Itís only in the past few years that Iíve started to feel a bit unsafe at gigs at Shepherds Bush Empire. I canít help wondering if theyíve started selling more downstairs tickets than they used to, because it always feels scarily rammed now, which I donít remember from past gigs. I think Iíll go for balcony next time if I go there again!

Re Lifeblood, on Friday James said something to the effect of only hardcore fans liking the album, and on Saturday after some people cheered when he mentioned Lifeblood, he said something like Ďtwenty one people like this oneí. On reflection he may have meant it in a self-deprecating way rather than sneering, but thatís how it seemed to me at the time. (Iím a bit tired of anniversary gigs but Iíd still kill to hear Lifeblood in full!)

Yeah that's just James taking the piss rather than sneering. I'd love an album tour for lifeblood. Won't happen though
If you go for seats stick to level 1 or 2. Level 3 has a metal bar over the balcony that restricts the view a bit, and the seats aren't the most comfortable. Gig sounded great though. I still enjoyed it

He said something about how it barely sold first night in Manchester.

Can't remember the last time I heard them perform something off Lifeblood without an introduction with something negative to say.

I live for the day when James will introduce a song from LB saying it was one of their greatest and most cruelly overlooked albums (because it is!)
