Squeeze and the Lightening Seeds

Lightening SeedsYour average height, 5″5 ¾, English gal standing in the stalls at a gig (Pop concert) has to decide whether to crane her neck for a view or

DANCE her socks off

Given the bands were Squeeze and the Lightening Seeds the decsion was easy – I opted for sock abondonment. Whenever I glanced up and between the gently rocking plumpified bodies of the middle-aged couples afront I could see fabulous back-drops and light displays. Displays clearly designed to entertaining the heightedly-average person such as myself. Good show. It was.

During the interval I joined the logistic challenge of ordering beers by acting as part of the chain to pass them from the bar through the 10-person deep seemingly random crowd that was actually multiple orderly queues. I’d forgotten the subtle skills and social coordination necessary to purchase a round of drinks at a sell-out concert in a large venue. It was fun, I got to meet and talk to other people in the Queue about their journey’s to the gig, their past experiences of seeing the bands. It’s a friendly psuedo-muddle.

SqueezeBy lifting my arm into the air I gained a snapshot into what the world looks like for taller people and those average heighties who are prepared to wear ankle-threatening high  heals. With only 6 inches difference in height the world would look so different.

    The more I come over here to visit the more I realise we have a conjoined musical past!

    I love Lightening Seeds and Squeeze, what a great concert it must have been. This week I’ve been having a bit of a retrospective of the 80’s on my social networking blog…XTC were the most recent to appear on the playlist, can’t beat the 80’s for musical magic.

    Bux! you are prolific, with your poetry, life in Oslo and social networking. I love XTC, one of My Bros’ lived down the road, Swindon, from the Guitarist in the late 80’s

    Sounds like you had a brilliant time, I am really glad to hear it. Never knew queuing for drinks in a full venue could be that much fun! I was at a gig in Windsor a few months back that was in a theatre which meant everyone could see. It was a most unusual experience for me. But then you can’t dance if you are sitting down. Hmmm!

    Happy frog and I – I was suprised, I felt downhearted when I saw the line, then spottydog just launched in and organised us and it all became a good game… …it was a brilliant evening…
