That's right folks, I saw Radio Birdman. I went with my friends Peter (Australian) and Anna (Kiwi) to the Dirty Water Club, a venue I have been wanting to check out since I saw that Billy Childish was playing there a month or so ago (a show I unfortunately missed). I think the venue is normally in a downstairs, smaller area, but since this was a big show it was being held in a larger area on the second floor.

Radio Bridman were amazing! All guilt over spending money I didn't really have vanished as soon as they came on. They've been back together for a few years and it shows; no mere old guys badly rehashing their biggest hits to a mooning albeit increasingly frustrated audience (as in the Standell's reunion I saw several years ago in Vegas where they played "Dirty Water" THREE times and sounded like crap). It is among my top ten favorite shows of all time, I think.

The only drawback was London transport on our way home. The show was over by 11:30 and I should have made it home before 1am, but due to the first train arriving after 45 minutes, missing my connection back to Brixton, and the bus wait being half an hour (instead of the 12 min. max it should have taken) I didn't get home until after 2am and felt like hell at work the next morning. It was still well worth it!
