“THEY DON’T WRITE EM LIKE THAT ANY MORE”
WHAT A NIGHT I HAD!
my best buddy and me met spider (scooter-forums
) and went to see “from the jam” at the sheffield octogon. and fuck me they were good! in fact they were better than good, they were astounding!

loads of jam classics, and even more album tracks! and whats more, and as i commented to spider and skaz, they didn’t play town called malice, and more power to em! i, along with however many other misty eyed men of a certain age sang my heart out to every single song. so much so that my throat is now raw. but soooo worth it.
the response they got was unreal. i was transported back to 1977-1982 all over again! if you have the chance, go see em. i’m planning on taking V.
we may have had the chance to get into the soundcheck and meet them, but it wasn’t to be. next time eh spider?
anyhoo, theres a few pics, and heres a couple of vids.
(the vids are short due to the amount of alcohol being thrown. didn’t want to ruin my new phone[more on that later])
set the house ablaze
down in the tube station at midnight (watch the beer fly!)
(including a link to scooter-forums. yay us!!)
