Roachford Live @ Komedia Brighton

Boy did he rock! Oooh la la:-) I have never seen him live before and there was quite a few people in the crowd who hadn't either (I found this out whilst questioning people because that's the kind of thing I do;-)).

What disturbed me a bit was the few people who had to ask "er..who's Roachford?"(when telling people afterwards whilst staggering around the streets of Brighton, plus ladies toilets everywhere).

Oh no, does this mean I am old or summat? If you are reading this and you know who Roachford is, then, sorry but, you are old.

There are people younger than you.

People who read this blog regularly will know that I have a problem with this age thing and people suddenly (when you reach thirty and above) frequently appear who are not having a clue what you are talking about.

Anyhow, I digress.

If you did not see Roachford on his tour with Mama's Gun doing support (who, incidentally were not good...too loud, no mike control, too Jamiroquai wannabes), then I can categorically say that you missed something.

The crowd was heaving. The feeling was pure happy happy joy joy from both Roachford and the audience. Together we tickled each others fancy.

And that was damn nice:-)

Blimey, I haven't thought about Roachford for ages!

I think I have his album from circa 95 knocking around somewhere. I listened to it quite a lot at the time but probably haven't even thought about it let alone played it in 5 years!

Man, I'm old!

I'm sure I saw Roachford at a festival but I think I'd had too much cider to be sure.

Damien said...

Hmmm... sounds like Lighthouse Family... um... lite.

Stop rubbing my nose in it. I'm turning 30 not getting old :P

Oh yes Damien, once you turn that corner on the 30 something road..everything starts becoming weird, wrong and old.

Oh the joys of cider:-)

Well I am leaving a comment here because it is your most recent post. I don't have a clue who you are referring to about the band or whatever. I live in the states and I was perusing other blogs that had interests similar to mine. If you want to check me out, please do.
