    Favourite Moments

    Witnessing The Libertines getting back together. While they were sloppy to begin with, and probably didn't quite meet the expectations that I'd dreamt up, it really was something special.

    While watching The Sunshine Underground, with two of the best lads you'll ever meet; in between songs the crowd would yell 'Yorkshire, Yorkshire, Yorkshire' quickly rather than applaud. Total pride that is.
