Just came back from The Libertines and oh man it was so fantastic! The first few songs weren't really kicking but then they sang the new one Can't Stand Me Now and the level just lifted and everything was marvellous after that. And the crowd around us were retarded but there were so many comic moments of loserdom that it just improved my mood even more. Man, I can't remember being so blissfully happy and relaxed and not at all anxious at a gig before. Gold gold gold. And their new material sounds really totally excellent. And Carl Barat is lovely isn't he? Ooooh, it was just so damn great!

The support band were The Pictures, who replaced The Cops, filling the spot at the last minute. They won me over early on with some great guitar and rocking-ness, and they had a really cool attitude and effortless natural rock moves. The lead guy is in You Am I isn't he? Anyway, a good sort. Quite a rocking three-piece. Like em.

But oh man, The Libertines! Hee hee hee hee hee hee hee hee hee hee hee....
