I think I really liked that one song The Middle, and I bought the album. I did not really think about them for another twenty years or so, then we started listening to Radio X, and they play this song constantly.
I was at this one, more from this year in my gigography for 2002. Part of every gig I went to from '87 to 2023. It's an obvious step from my Best gigs of all time weblog post. Yeah I know very nerdy, let's let that go though, I'm having fun reminiscing about this stuff.
