Last night, however, was probably the most fun I have EVER had at a show.
I got home, and went to bed with a hoarse voice, tired legs, and a smile on my face.
We enjoyed all three New York shows, though our consensus is that last night was the best of the three from a performance perspective.
Just trying to get my legs back, WOW is all i can say, i do agree that Mondays show seemed to be stronger than Sundays, i was able to attend both.
Both shows were excellent, but Mondays seemed to have a stronger edge to it, not sure what could have made it that way for me, but I'm sure it had a lot to do with meeting up with the many Medusans i was able to hang with right up there near the from of the stage, Katthleen and her husband, Vancouver Steve, and so many others, at present I'm having a difficult time recalling names, not sure if the Jamesons had anything to do with it, or maybe the Guinness??.......................
Phillip is was an amazing show all around, hearing all you fine musicians taking individual stabs at the mike for different songs was even more rewarding, as we all love and adore Shane and his uniqueness, when we see and hear what the other band members can contribute talent wise, it truly demonstrates how much "collective talent" has been accrued into one entity known as "The Pogues"??
i cannot say it enough, thank you, thank you and thank you once again, for such a fine couple of evenings of pure raw entertainment that you bring to your fans. The final song Fiesta, with Ollin and the Marseille Fig players all getting on stage for the final was just so rousing??
this was my second trip to New York to see you fellows, and the last words from Shane were??..........."thankyou, and we will see you all next year"??
I'am already planning for next years shows, so heres to the health of all the band members and once again thankyou to all of you, this band is so special to me i cannot describe it enough, and of course meeting all these other Medusans only confirmed to me that the rest of the world is totally "fucked up" and we Medusans are the only ones who really get the meaning of life??
"enjoy it while we have it"
kudos to all of you with spades??.......... and see you next year laddys??
It's a joyful noise. The world needs joyful noise at the moment.
