M and I are in London. We just saw the Fields of the Nephilim 30th anniversary show. Not exactly a concert, it was more accurately like a frenzied summoning ritual. Totally worth flying to another continent for.

This gig had the most intense crowd I've ever been a part of, - from the first song it was crazy, but not aggro-metalhead-crazy, more like hypnosis-freakout-crazy, like "I've been taken over by the Spirits"-crazy. I didn't take many photos - here's one that is somewhat representative of the atmosphere (but imagine all these people as a roiling, bubbling mass, during Last Exit for the Lost):



They've been my favorite band since I was 16. So happy to finally have seen them, and in a proper atmosphere.

Saw Carl afterward too. I didn't say hello because I'm shy and don't like to bother people, but I enjoyed seeing him wandering around impersonating a normal person. : )

Anyway I feel like I can die now. If I get hit by a bus or something, don't feel too badly for me. (Though I'll try to stay alive).
