Self explanatory really. This stems from the growing annoyance of ignorant rude people yapping at gigs, ruining it for others. We’ve all done it, even me and I’m perfect but that doesn’t excuse it.
Either it’s on the increase or I’m just growing more aware of it- although it seems I’m not alone in suffering bad gig experiences due to the selfishness of others. (Read Richard’s lively post about it on the wonderful Culture Vulture blog here)
This a (hopefully) humorous summation of those feelings. The last track isn’t a serious declaration of intent either…..although if I go to just one more gig marred by people talking, I might not be responsible for my actions…! (we could do with S*M*A*S*H right now…..change the lyrics for Simon Cowell/Piers Morgan/Cameron/Katie Price/Louis Walsh/Murdoch etc, etc)
I could have opted for ‘A Little Less Conversation’ but I hate the record and Elvis…
