Spiritualized, Crystal Method, Jonathan Fire Eater, Dawn Of The Replicants. Not my sort of lineup at all, and I don't remember the gig. I do remember waiting in Spiritualized's hotel for their main man to come out and be interviewed for NME. I was doing some sort of web support, think I had a laptop and it would be uploaded to nme.com right away. I supose we went on to the gig after this, though quite late.
I was at this one, more from this year in Paul's gig history for 1998. Part of every gig I was at from '87 to 2023. A natural step from my Best Gigs Ever blog post. Yeah I know it's a bit geeky, let's let that go though, I'm enjoying remembering these things.
