I was clearly going to anything that was going in 1993, but Pulp played Portsmouth TWICE in 1993 and I didn't go. What was going on? Radiohead also played Portsmouth and Southampton this year, supposedly my peak years when I was doing the fanzine, I really didn't have my eye on the ball at all.
Every gig that I went to that I look back on now, I manage to find a far superior gig in the same venue on an adjacent day, REM when I was watching Transvision Vamp, Pixies when I was at WASP, Under Neath What instead of Metallica, etc. I can't wait for the time machine to be invented to so I can go back and tell the teenage me the right places to go.
