I've come a long way since I saw Jamelia perform at the Olympic Torch Concert in 2004. A road on which I've lost all senses to Foals, tapped my feat to The xx, danced on stage with The Drums, crowd surfed to Bloc Party and screamed exasperatingly back at Alex Turner all the way to a certain band's reunion show at Heaton Park last month. However within the sweat pits of those indie havens, arenas or fields lurk a certain kind of person whom I despise; a kind which I'm increasingly finding easier to spot as they try to ruin my nights entertainment, leaving me wondering if I'm slowly but surely becoming one of those grumps at the back. So here you have it, my top three most hated gig-goers. I should point out though that I will almost certainly have been all of three of the below at some stage in my gigging life so far. The Liam Gallagher Wannabe How Anyone could want to base their life on this man is beyond me. An arrogant, obnoxious tit in a fisherman hat who's still trying to rip-off his once overrated band within which all he did was pose with a hollow tambourine, storm off stage and offer out fights. But still people do, and my God were they out in force at Heaton Park! I must have stuck out like a sore thumb with my old 'X-City' raincoat (No, I haven't heard of it either. Probably vintage) in the Parka infested mud bath. But hey, guess what? It kept me dry from the piss and beer which these moranic meatheads insist on showering down on us for a hundredth of the price.
