Hey Guys. Bit of a weird post coming up but hey ho.
I have a ticket to sell for the Glasgow date at Oran Mor on Thursday 6th October. The face price is £20, I'm looking to recoup whatever I can. It's currently on Ebay for £18 and open to offers. I'm not able to make the gig as I have left my home in Edinurgh and am the proceess of returning to Bristol. My 6 year relationship has failed, or rather my girlfriend has - I made terrible discoveries a few weeks ago that she has been living a double life for over a year and a half. It's been a deeply distressing time. And I know this isn't really the right thread fot this. But I am currently homeless, jobless and heartbroken.
I'm currently with my mother in the Lake District as I look to secure accommodation in Briz. Yesterday I borrowed her car and drove out to Ullswater, I put on '...And their Refinement of the Decline'. LOUD. As loud as the speakers could bear. I love this band so much. The music moves me and chimes with my inner self so powerfully, like hardly any other, perhaps only Low. Tippy's Demise was a revelation, once again. It was like a cool balm on my troubled mind. Reaching and comforting a place only music can reach. It was fleeting, but I know better times lie ahead. It's extremely tough right now. Forward steps, backwards steps, side steps. I'm reeling, punchdrunk.
However. A positive. I can now most definately make the Barbican show. My train is booked, my hotel is booked (thanks Mexi) and goddamit I am going to do all I can to be there. I have waited a year for this gig. I believe I will be in a better place when it comes around. I hope a few of us can meet up before, or after, or both. And have a pint in the sun. I'm looking forward to it.
