Cathedral Sanctuary- Koreatown 12/4/2018

4-terdee am and the water is coming down. I've put on a brew. Waiting...

I was awake already, but I had to get up,
though most likely I will be alone at work, what with the rain.

12:30, I went to bed after we got back from a concert at a cathedral ( Pres'b'teerian...). Ian McCulloch was only ten rows away in a thousand seat hall but I could not tell you a thing he said in between songs except for a word here and there.

The concert was good and people were mostly old, and much fatter than when they'd first heard Echo and the Bunnymen some thirty-years earlier.

We were not allowed to dance in the aisle ( they threatened to shut down the show) but they ( 'we') did dance some for the last three, and I think he was complaining about that ( fascism) though I couldn't be sure, not being a Liverpoolian, which may as well have been Hungarian. He did say one time he couldn't understand whatever audience members were yelling to him, either. Mm...

They sing in American, still speak in whatever dialect. I remember hearing The Stone Roses talking with Steve Jones on the radio, and they were like that, too: sing in American; speak in
Uk (unknown). Great bands...

    PIL- It was a great show. He did that spoken-word piece "Religion" about smug priests and statues, and then led it into a chant- we were all chanting F.O.! to anything that people try to feed you - their b.s. manipulation, lies, for their own purposes. Very inspiring. I'd go see them again.

    Ah.. The un-famous Lifeless Zone, when corporate had finally dialed in Radio to maximize listener retainership where they played each required artists' 1- 3 song catalog, trimmed version as necessary. My radio went off. By coincidence Reagan came in 2 years later. It was a rough time for me.
