Musical memories

That word count is starting to look very nice. Amazing what I can do with no internet, no television.

Still been watching movies. A DVD player and a data projector, and we have a home cinema and the cat is freaking out at the helicopters flying into the lounge room. Actually, I think he's quite amused by it, but he does leave the room or sulk under the table if it gets too noisy.

With the current musical obsession, I asked my partner the other day who he had seen in concert. So while I have seen Eurythmics four times, Transvision Vamp, Sandii & the Sunsetz, Hoodoo Gurus, Divinyls, Bachelor Girl, Leonardo's Bride, Chris Wilson x numerous incarnations, Moving Pics (as we know from my blog), Prince, Uncanny X Men, QED (Jenny Morris), k d lang, Jane Siberry, the Cranberries, Dynamic Hepnotics, Jon English, Tiddas,Deborah Conway, The Badloves, The Angels, Bjorn Again, jimmy Barnes, Ian Moss (but NOT Cold Chisel), Wendy Matthews and that's just what I can dredge up from my memory, he has never paid to see a live act because they're too expensive. Actually, I don't think he even listens to music for pleasure (just for work because he's a DJ). Well he's going to have to listen to some music now because he's in for a retrospective from my CD's.

So who have you seen live?

Hmm, no-one recently because I'm an eighties gal who does not want to listen to 80s FM. Hoodoo Gurus (lots), Midnight Oil (Lots), Bruce Springsteen (in the UK), Joe Cocker (lots), V Spy V Spy, Madness (at Finsbury Park), B52s, Crowded House, Dire STraits, Paul Kelly and the fabulous Irish Band the Saw Doctors.

OHHHHHHHHHH, duh, I saw Bruce play too! Won me over he did! Until I saw him live, I never really cared for his music.
