Is Bruce playing again tonight? Can hear him if he is... can't make out any of the songs this time though.

Just as well that he is, otherwise you'd be off  for a stay in St Pats.

Yes - he can speak out against rendition in Dublin 4 and meanwhile our government is still refusing to have any system in Shannon to check the planes in the way that the UN, the Council of Europe and our own statutory Human Rights Commission say must be done if Ireland is to meet its obligations under the UN Convention against Terror...

We should be supporting the good Americans.

Maybe. Meanwhile I'm thankful for this one!

Radiohead, Neil Young and Leonard Cohen are all around in June I think. You were going to go to Neil Young He3 weren't you?

He3, I love you .

I didn't know about that and having checked the website and the local outlet, I get the impression they are only being sold in outlets, not online.

No prizes for guessing where I'll be with a good book at the crack of dawn tomorrow morning. And the laptop - just in case...

Thanks a mill for pointing that out!

Its not music, but that's where I'll be going this week. Past its glory days perhaps but we will have a houseful and track down a few old favourites and try some new acts too.

Did they sell out?

I was plonked on a cushion outside my local record shop at seven am and was on my own for an hour. Owner didn't seem to think there was much competition for them which really surprised me considering there are only 24,000 in total (Bruce sold 120,000 ish) and he is the man - the man who doesn't come here very often.

Woohoo!

So the numb bum was worth it and the predictions about the security conditions putting people off were groundless.

Rest assured I shall be telling you all about how wonderful he was.

I was offered a ticket to Linkin Park yesterday. 22 June. Pass, I think.

Look forward to hearing.

Meanwhile if any Lou Reed fans are lurking there are two spare tickets to his Berlin show in the Cork Marquee in need of a good home.

Lou Reed is someone I know I should have listened to more - I've just stuck on disc 2 of NYC man and already am toe-tapping to the jazzy 'I want to be Black.' I've also got a Velvet Underground CD there somewhere which I should listen to again.

Whoever said the man who made time made plenty of it was lying through his teeth. Evil or Very Mad

The noise monitoring people are not best pleased with Bruce. Here is the story about supposed exceedances of limits on the Friday night.

It was very nice noise though.

I could be tempted. Did you catch Lou Reed was it last year with Anthony at the Helix - Good or what?

Thanks for the song link cactus flower.

I have never seen Lou Reed so am looking forward to this even though I am in complete ignorance of his Berlin music.

It was a good year for Anthony and the Johnsons.
Lou Reed was pretty darned good and looked amazing in black leather. Kate would have appreciated it and I must admit so did I. Anthony was an unexpected bonus - heard him again at the Picnic that year.

I just love Anthony, he's brilliant, have seen him a few times over the last 3 years. His latest collaboration is with Hercules and Love Affair -
