plus The Ordinary Boys and The 22s. Looks like everyone was there to see the Ordinary Boys, but I thought they were a bit, um, ordinary... stellastarr were OK, not quite as convincing as on record though.
I was at this one, more from this year in Paul's gig history for 2003. Part of every gig I went to from '87 to 2023. It's an obvious step from my Best Gigs Ever weblog post. Yeah I know a bit nerdy, let's let that go though, I'm enjoying reminiscing about this stuff.
Other gigs at Islington Academy I attended are David Devant and his Spirit Wife ('06), David Devant and his Spirit Wife ('04), Goldie Lookin' Chain ('04), Ghost of the Robot ('04), The Libertines ('02), McAlmont + Butler ('02)
