Witnessing failed stage diving through Crystal Ships
Partaking in front of stage crushes to Up To Our Hips
Missing whole performances from The Stereo MCs
Wow these New Yorkers are magic, who gave you these?
Sleeping in the bleachers listening to Black Grape
Throwing sweat loaded clothing at everyone’s favourite ape
Imagining yourself Up On The Catwalk too.
Claiming mod status watching most of The Who.
Driving through the night having watched the Stone Roses perform.
Na na na na -ing in a tent till early morn.
Listening to jokes from a quiet stage that’s the Hipsway
Staggering through a forest to watch Oasis play
King Tuts, Broadcast,The Venue and the Forum
Open fields, The Usher Hall and of course The Barrowlands Ballroom
Memories of nights spent deliriously engaged
Gonna get me some more memories despite of my age.
And when an idea comes along
Brandishing a bomb and a gun
Turn your back, give them the horns
And remember the songs we have sung
Coming along for the ride?
One thought on “Memories of gigs gone by.”
