      I really loved this gig, I’d seen them 3 times before this, and this is easily one of the best of them.
      The band were in great form, laughing and smiling throughout, towards the end Billy spent something like 10/15 minutes just joking around with us/ranting about modern music.
      I was pretty near the front, and everyone was going crazy for every single song even though the younger ones didn’t know the words to the lesser known songs, there was a great vibe.
      Gig lasted somewhere around 2 hours 45 minutes, I enjoyed every second of it,
      I made this video of Lily at it :

      Also got quite a few pics, you don’t need to add me or anything, the pics are public don’t worry ;)

      Oh, and hi there, I’m new btw :P

      I second that! Looks like the Irish are conquering our boards. Be welcome, Cult Hero!

      Happen to be a collector of vinyl or CDs or so also? Just curious. :D

    • #13415


      great pics :)

    • #13416


      Yeah. I loved this one.

    • #13417


      its a good one :)

      Thanks guys :)
      Yeah I had a great time, though I heard it wasn’t as much fun outside the pit, and there were problems with the sound (which I expected, as the RDS is a terrible venue) at some points.
      I have to admit though, United States did overstay it’s welcome a bit, don’t get me wrong, I like the song, but by the time it hit the 20 minute mark, I was kinda wishing they would play another song :o
      I wasn’t aware there was a strong Irish presence here, that’s pretty cool :)

      Yeah I collect CD’s though my collection is probably microscopic compared to some of you guys ;)
      I have no vinyl yet but I do intend to at least get all the studio albums on vinyl when chance and finances meet in a glorious collaboration :P

      Glad you like the pics, feel free to take any you want to use however you want, it’s all gravy :)

      Haha, don’t get me wrong… There might be more Irish, but we don’t know really where everybody is from, when they don’t fill in their country, you know… Let’s say you are the Exploration Team and just behind you is the Irish Army of SP fans. :wink:

      Well let’s hope for that anyway! Everybody is welcome on this small and humble board! 8)

      Have fun here Cult Hero, nice to meet you. You should post 1 of the pics with you on it here, they are pretty cool. Kinda gothic you say? Noooo, not this person! :lol:

      Lol if I’m right about which photo’s your talking of, they are old photo’s, like 9 years ago old.
      Ah my old goth/androgeny phase :P
      I don’t really look like that anymore ;)

    • #13423


      So not goth then? :)

    • #13424

      Im a Cult Hero

      Still into the music, but I’ve gotten too lazy to keep up the look :P

    • #13425


      so you listen to music besides the SP?

    • #13426

      Im a Cult Hero

      Uh-oh…..I’ve been rumbled! :P
      Yeah all the goth standards would be among my all time faves (but of course all below SP), The Cure, Joy Division, Bauhaus, Siouxsie & the Banshees, Sisters of Mercy etc. etc. :)

      I just remembered a little random bit from the gig :
      During the banter bit, Billy was giving out about bands using pro-tools to \"fix\" their music, \"We’re not like them\", then he asks everyone to raise their hands for whom this was their first SP gig, and he said \"and so now you know……we get this S*** done\" and threw up gang signs :P
      Me and my friend constantly quote that bit to each other, still makes us laugh :p

    • #13427


      Thats cool. I like Joy Division and The Cure, some Siouxsie too. But less than Pumpkins of course. :lol:

      Funny Billy bit. :)

    • #13428

      billy is such a silly boy, i wonder what gang signs he threw up? :D

    • #13429


      i wonder to? do you have pics? :lol:

    • #13430

      Im a Cult Hero

      I wasn’t able to see properly because of the angle he was at when he did it.
      No didn’t manage to get it on camera.
      He also did Jazz hands to My Blue Heaven and a weird kinda ballet style dance during Lindas keyboard solo :P

    • #13431


      funny :lol:

      he looks silly when he dances

    • #13432

      jazz hands!!! :lol:

      i love that!!!

      yes, billy dances like me, crazy and strange!

    • #13433



    • #13434

      speaking of billy’s dancing again, i am remided of the video for tarantula, he doesn’t have a guitar in front of him, so he has to move his hands all over, he just looks kinda uncofortable, and then he tosses the mic stand between hands, and then a second later does something with the mic stand again and the microphone falls off, and he laughs, i thought that was funny.

      maybe that doesn’t have much to do with it at all, oh, this darn glue, get’s me all crazy

    • #13435


      Yeah, that video is not the greatest and it does seem kind of uncomfortable. And I don’t know if anyone agrees with me, but I kind of thought it was a cop-out with all the extras and the flashy colors. It just didn’t cut it when you consider some of their video masterpieces like Tonight,Tonight and Ava Adore (which he dances in too but it works). The Tarantula video was just kind of ok to me.

    • #13436

      i agree, i liked the video for that’s the way much better. it was better than taurantula, not near as good as tonight tonight, but hey, i really like any video with billy in it. :wink:

    • #13437


      I agree. That’s The Way My Love Is was a much better video. It was still missing that extra something though, that would have taken it from a decent video to a really good one. His more recent videos just havn’t been as up to par as earlier efforts, except for Walking Shade. I love that one.

    • #13438

      no argument here.

      oh i still can’t get over the jazz hands!

    • #13439

      Im a Cult Hero

      Found a video of some of the banter towards the end, including the bits I mentioned, looks like my memory isn’t quite so hot, It’s hard to tell but he doesn’t seem to throw up gang signs, but maybe he does *shrugs* I dunno.
      (The then start playing Cherub Rock)

    • #13440

      but hey, i really like any video with billy in it. :wink:[/quote:263hcmc4]

      What about replicas of billy? Such as a porcelain head made up to look like Billy?

      Because in that case, you should watch Starfuckers inc. by Nine Inch Nails :lol:

    • #13441

      no mostly just real billy. i have never seen that video, i might watch it. but i would watch billy read the phone book, so yeah any thing with real billy.

    • #13442

      Im a Cult Hero

      Heres a few more random vids from the night :

      \"Danny Boy\" & \"Today\"

      \"My Blue Heaven\" – The guy using the camera manages to completely miss the dancing bit, ansd cuts it off right before the last jazz hands (he also missed the first jazz hands at the start of the song)

      Now it looks like I’m making this stuff up :P

    • #13443

      aww, you can’t controll the people with the cameras, i belive you, cause it sounds like stuff that silly billy would do.

    • #13444


      Was there an American flag displayed at this show? I can’t recall off the top of my head…

      I read somewhere that the flag’s been raised and lowered several times during gigs and it’s only a recent discovery.

    • #13445

      Im a Cult Hero

      Nope, no flag for us, the venue was indoors and too small for them to bring the full stadium show out.

      Oh and I noticed you didn’t have a ticket for this one in the collection :
