It's good to be back.


Yes, it's a crappy mobile phone picture, but at least it's something. :)

This was probably one of the strongest concert experiences ever. Skunk Anansie got back together again after quite some years and they are touring Europe now. They came to Ljubljana on Thursday. Ok, technically it was Friday, since they got on stage at 1am. :)

My, my, what a concert that was. Powerful, strong, accurate and the audience really followed every single second of it, from Selling Jesus as an opening song to Secretly as the third of their return to the stage. We just didn't want to let them go. Skin was at her best, a volcano of energy and the guys just followed the lead. I have to say it was also a rather emotional concert. Skin, also known for not treating the public too kindly now and then, was apparently surprised and taken by the enthusiasm we all showed. Yes, "It's good to be back" was what she said before Hedonism, the first of their returns. And there was also "You're wonderful, where have we been all these years?"

I am not much of a concert person, but I have to say I am really happy that some of my all time favourite bands came to Ljubljana and Skunk Anansie just rule my throne now, a Trinity with Morcheeba and Massive Attack, I'd say. And YouTube just exploded with videos from their Ljubljana act. So, here's one. Guy apparently had a good equipment with him. :)

Just because you feel good
Doesn't make your right, oh no
Just because you feel good
Still want you here tonight

Had no idea SA had reformed! That's something we have in common - well 3 in fact: Morcheeba, Skunk Anansie and Massive Attack - three of my all time faves :)

Glad you enjoyed - looked like a great gig!

I saw them back in London YEARS ago at a secret gig and they were great. I was introduced to Skin once when I handled Abbey Road Studios - very surreal when it was over lunch in the studio's canteen/kitchen... But she was lovely and very down to earth. Met her again later than year when we threw a party for the rock artists and she did a very brief impromptu singalong...at some silly in the morning...yes most people were pissed lol
