  1. King Creosote - Union Chapel.
    2015? Beautiful music, beautiful venue.
  2. Stone Roses - Ally Pally
    Just after Fools Gold was released.
  3. Spiritualised - Barbican
    Playing 'Ladies and Gentleman..' in its entirety. At Christmas.
  4. The Pogues - Reading Festival
    1989. First time I saw them, raw and ragged.
  5. The Specials - Hammersmith Apollo
    2008? Sweaty and joyous.
  6. Primal Scream - Olympia
    Playing the whole of Screamadelica. Need I say more?
  7. Super Furry Animals - Glastonbury
    Everyone else was watching Radiohead.
  8. Brian Wilson - South Bank
