I had to endure an hour of Toploader at the Campaign for a Living Wage gig in Manchester on my 17th birthday, sandwiched between Idlewild and Catatonia (the main reason I was there). They were dreadful. Catatonia were a bit disappointing but at least they took the stench of Toploader away.

The Dum Dums were the first act on, incidentally, and only did 2-3 songs, then fucked off.

I actually preferred Radiohead going a bit weird. U2? As if.

I guess he was on the edge of a nervous breakdown anyway, but he did disappeared from work not long after that. I’d love to know what thought of Amnesiac.

Maybe Travis, Coldplay, Snow Patrol, Keane and Muse bought him back from the brink...
