I saw Black Grape support The Stone Roses, Sheffield 1995....half way through a song they stopped playing because it was "bifter time" - madnes when they returned to the stage 5 mins later!
I was at the same gig. It started snowing when we left the gig and I stopped at a friend of a friend's place....with no heating. One of the coldest nights of my life. It was worth it though.:D

Funny how I can remember that far back but I struggle to remember what I did 5 minutes ago.:rolleyes::p:)

I'd forgotten about the weather. I drove back up to West Yorkshire in blizzard conditions on the M1.. As you say, well worth it!

Oh & the Beta Band were great. Really enjoying Steve Mason's solo stuff!
The other 'bit' of the Beta Band - when they split - went on to be The Aliens. If you are not familiar check them out. The first two albums are superb. Steve Mason has done some great solo work but unfortunately I think they were better together. As I type this there is a poster on the wall next to me for the Beta Band gig at the Corn Exchange in Edinburgh on the 24th of August 2004. The day they split up! The gig never happened. Damn. That close. I.

Another 80's / 90's indie kid here! Inspirals are my favourite band (the ones I'd follow around and always see), but not actually the best.

James have been a constant, and I always come back to The Smiths. Either of them would qualify as the band I've listened to most over the years.

Current favourites are Everything Everything, who are currently releasing teasers of new material. Can't wait!

I have such eclectic taste in music from AC/DC (seen them twice), to the Stones (watched them at Brixton) to Allison Kraus & Union Station and Slaid Cleaves (Seen him a few times). The the majority of the time though I listen to classical music and given the opportunity I would go to a classical concert over anything else

So do I.
Really tough question... Although I don't listen to that band that much now, pretty rarely actually, I'd say the Pixies, short lived American indie rock band (active roughly between 1987-92). They got together again, but the magic has gone (and sadly I'm 25 years older too).

The Pixies were one of my favorite bands. I saw them quite a few times, including Reading Festival.
I even met them on a few occasions. I've even had pizza with Kim Deal and stole a kiss too.:p:D I have a photo of it somewhere.
Happy days.:D
