“I described you to my friends in Mexico as Apocalyptic desert rock“ “We’re alright with that!” -2008- “It’s a shame you weren’t around before, fella” he said, before taking a gulp of Kopparberg, “you could’ve seen Milburn‘s last ever gig“. “When was this?” I ask to the guy whose name I never quite got.

Tramlines 2009. The first one. The one where the local music bug bit me. Probably because I stepped on it with all my splendorous overweightness (!). I’d just seen La Folie at the Frog & Parrot and dragged myself uphill, back to Endcliffe Village. Statistics about fungus and micas had to be done.

Saturday 24: Pata de Perro (Sheffield Alabama Death March).
Day started out nicely with the Bromheads‘ flashmob in front of the Student Union of the University of Sheffield. A sparse but eager crowd was there, told by organisers that as soon as the band started playing, they had to freeze in position, with poses as silly as they could muster to keep for 2 minutes.
The song played was ‘Friends’ (the very one they played when they got chased out of the City Library twice in April). Afterwards it was time to take the Busker Bus, which arrived not late not early, but exactly when it was expected to arrive. After cramming everyone inside, the band haphazardly started to play ‘Friends’ again.
