Babyshambles, Brixton Mass (2008-05-30)

The lads were fucking brilliant last night. Best I've ever seen them.

As tight as the arena tour, as rocking as the RF shows. Kids went crazy, and it was the best, most good-natured kind of crazy I've ever seen. Bliss.

They played for nearly an hour...:

Time For Heroes
Side Of The Road
Baddies Boogie
Beg, Steal and Borrow
Cool For Cats
I Wish
UnStookieTitled
UnBiloTitled
Pipedown - during which the band were ON FIRE. Best version I've heard. Brilliant.
I Wanna Be Adored > Killamangiro (with the Loyalty Song chorus) Shocked
La Belle Et Le Bete
Delivery

AMAZING.

Alas, after Delivery it all kicked off. The kids were bouncing about, crowdsurfing, going beautifully mental. Then for some reason the bouncer at the front started laying into the kids, punching kids in the head, shit like that. The band waited to see if things were going to calm down, then went off and that was the end of that. Peter was really distressed, trying to get security to back off, telling them that it was only kids, pack it in... they're not doing anything, there's no need, stopping hitting them... he was really upset. Looked for a minute like he was about to wade in and then he was hussled off sharpish. There would have been a fucking riot if he'd got into it with a bouncer. One of 'em got a can on the head, first time I've ever applauded anyone for throwing anything.

Really sad that such a fan-fucking-TASTIC show was ended like that, REALLY glad no-one got hurt.

Much love to Peter, Adam, Drew, Mik, Babybear and all the folks last night (except the bouncer cunts). It was one hell of a night.

Sounds amazing apart from the fight, would have gone if I was in the country.  Do you know if anyone taped it? Laughing

Some geezer taped it apparently. Not sure how much to put up, though, because the end made for really unpleasant listening.

VERY much looking forward to hearing it despite the distressing end, they WERE on FIRE!

Adam put up a myspace bulletin about the possibility of another Mass show.

Not sure I'd want to go if it's the same room... it was a miracle no-one got hurt last time.

Definitely  looking forward to hearing this.

The kids were fine, bless 'em. It was the bouncers that went way over the top.

Babybear (Adrian, one of Peter's and The Shambles' managers) posted on fdb responding to my post about Mass not being safe:

"Harsh words were had after the show regarding this.
Our warnings about the barriers were not heeded and the problems occured.
Won't be like that again I assure you.
Babyshambles have great concern for the safety of their fans I am sure you can't fail to agree.
Shame something marred a great night slightly.
Mojo barriers next time or the show does not happen!
bb."

Excellent. Really good news.
