29th Sept 2005 Carling Academy 2 Liverpool
From : Peter Miller
As a 48 year old in the summer of 2005 for a long time I had not heard any music that gave me the feeling it did when I was younger and slimmer . One Sunday morning whilst having a nice, relaxing poo, I read a review of The Back Room which intrigued me. I bought it the following day and was immediately taken back to when music mattered for me. 29th Sept 2005, my wife and I had tickets for Editors and We Are Scientists in Liverpool. Student bar full with occasional band members in black leather trousers trundling through. Editors came on and from the first notes I was transfixed and taken to a place I had not been since the early Bunnymen days in the 1980's. I still get that feeling every time I see or listen to Editors and I am so, so grateful for that. Best gig was Gazi Music Hall in Athens 2015. Experience was enhanced by my 60 year old friend, following our early morning flight and long, long lunch, escorting his lurching and tired and emotional wife out of the venue, up the long staircase against the tide of people coming down before the gig had started and him not knowing which hotel we were staying at! Happy, happy days.
