Smithfield was my first one too. Good craic queuing from 7.30am and all that. A friend of a friend had a go at Dave Fanning in the afternoon (he was wandering around interviewing Mark Greaney) about asking JDB in a tv interview 'Is Richey dead?'.

Went off to Wales with two people I had met on the internet and at Smithfield. We did Llandudno (bit dull if I remember correctly) and Cardiff (amazing - starting with You Love Us set the mood) together and then I went off on my own for two days of Reading. Highlights being King Adora and the Dropkick Murphys apart from themselves.
ah, class! Man, I should have known you back then. I had no internet and my mates thought I was lame for still liking the Manics when I should have been solely into, I dunno, Crass and Rudimentary Peni. So glad i'm not still bitter.

Fucking Dave Fanning though, christ what a thing to do.

I love those first two albums, they were amazing at Iveagh Gardens last year.
Yeah, I love the debut. 2.0 is very good. Beautifulgarbage is good, but after that it gets very patchy.
I saw them in the point with moloko supporting, January 1999. Had to check setlistfm for that.

Was watching top of the pops 1989 on bbc4. Black box ride on time was on...bit of a guilty pleasure.
I knew the vocals were sampled but hadn't heard the song. Here's the accapella version they used.
No auto tune back then, just incredible singers.


Marky mark got a hit out of it as well.

That gig in The Point was my first proper gig that I went to on my own. Moloko were great, set a high standard for support acts for me!

I saw them playing the big day out in Galway. The gig was a total shit show organisation wise and they only got to play for 20 minutes. They were deadly

Didn't go to the Smithfield gig but I did see them 3 times on the Everything Must Go tour. They were awesome each time, especially at the Trip to Tipp supporting The Prodigy. Their set at that still sticks in my head as 1 of the best gigs I was ever at. Just an incredible atmosphere for it. The band and crowd were just really up for it. I remember it started pissing rain halfway through and this just seemed to make the crowd go even more mental.


Half to admit, I stopped listening by the time Know Your Enemy came out.

Currently playing: the most derided Sonic Youth album, Experimental Jet Set Trash and No Star. I don't care what you say, I still love it. Love the guitar tones on this, the total production really.
