Don't believe the hype...

So yesterday i saw, of course, Arctic Monkeys, who were brilliant and brilliant may well just be an understatement. 
After driving through traffic, buying merch, queuing for the toilets, buying cider and water, me and my sister still managed to get to the barriers, it was just to the side of the stage and we wasn't in amongst the 'death by arctic monkeys' fans. The Vaccines came on, in all their 'need a new haircut' glory and were of course amazing, even if it was a little tedious and quick for me, however you could probably blame that on seeing that same set in April and watching it over and over at festivals on the T.V. Unfortunately i couldn't get any decent photos of The Vaccines,  they're all blurry apart from one photo of Arni swishing his hair about which came out brilliant.
Arctic Monkeys then came on, their set was incredible and i loved how they played so much from the previous albums rather than lots from Suck It And See. The crowd was amazing which made it even more enjoyable and i officially want to marry Jamie and Alex and be best friends with Matt and Nick and live my life with them forever. (keep on wishing) They finished the gig with Mardy Bum, slowing down the tempo a bit so it was just Alex, his guitar and the crowd singing, and then 505, Dance Little Liar made me squeal with joy. 
Overall the whole night was so good, i wish i could re-live it over and over and over even if i did get lots of beer and god knows what else chucked at me.

Tell me the secrets of your life.

Afternoon! I've just arrived back from Bristol after a weekend spent with my sister. Originally i was suppose to see The Horrors on Sunday, however after an unfortunate postponement (is that even a word?) i spent my sunday evening watching the Hurt Locker and Strictly come dancing. The weekend itself was wonderful, on Saturday i finally got to see Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, which despite being too confusing for me and having lots of characters, was really good, i also managed to pick up a few cheap Pink Floyd records and a necklace from Topshop. 
And in true Stone Roses reunion style i'm starting to read an Ian Brown biography. My sister managed to get tickets for their reunion show, which has infact made me very jealous however they're not the greatest live band, and with new material fingers crossed they'll tour.

Good Afternoon Good Evening

After months of continuously 'blogging' on the generic site tumblr, i decided that it was finally time to create a blogspot, many times i have failed. My name is Lillie, i am currently 15 and from Oxford. I am an aspiring Art student and tattoo artist and  my english skills are horrific, hence why i am using google chrome to correct my spelling mistakes. At this moment in time i have just found out that the horrors have cancelled their Bristol show which i have been looking forward to for months so i have now come to the conclusion that i am never meant to set foot in the same room as Rhys Webb, as the rescheduled dates will either collide with college open evenings or the vaccines. So apart from my typical Horrors outbursts that will probably appear every now and then, i'll write a little about myself.
  • It is my dream to move to London, and study Art there, i have no certain plans for my future apart from that, i've always just wanted to get to London and see where life take me
  • I love music, i like to play keyboard, and i play little guitar, however i am a left handed guitar player and the only guitars there are in my house are right handed, so trying to play chords is near enough impossible. 
  • Bands i especially like are The Horrors and Velvet Underground, however i love all types of music from psychedelic, garage, ska, classical and 60s girl groups
  • John Lennon and Andy Warhol inspire me more than any other people
  • If i was to ever go on mastermind my specialist subject would have to be the life and times of Alexander McQueen, who is again, one of my heroes. 
I'll post some more in the future, i still have plans to go to Bristol this weekend despite not seeing The Horrors, and it is also the long awaited half term!
