Elia and the Low Tears

It was a somewhat boozy weekend. Me and Belle went out to the Gipsy Hill Tavern on Friday night to see Elia & the Low Tears make their South London debut (I think) at a warm-up for the Crystal Palace Overground Festival in June, and my auld china plate Captain Kremmen came along too. It was a lot of fun, and marred only by the sight of ordinarily grown men and women losing themselves in a fantasy, pissy, vomity world where the spectacle of corporate football somehow makes up for the common land being fenced off by the ruling class a few centuries back. Anyway, the show was ace and the next day me and Chris met up with some good folk who are making a documentary about ye olde Non-Stop Picket of the South African Embassy in Trafalgar Square way back when we were all righteous wiseguy delinquents. Good times, naturally.


  1. it's disturbing how vehement sports enthusiasts become - it's an excuse for rallying en masse against a psuedo - nationalist enemy

    nice t-shirt - Ramones first album - I would never have imagined back in the day, that Ramone songs would used in Scooby-Doo cartoons and guitar hero samples - i explain to my kids - what Ramones were about - they don't get it

  2. Saturday night was Joey Ramone's 61st birthday of course. Belle loves the Ramones and gets upset if people say mean things about them. But she's still only seven so she's got plenty of time to change her mind...
