I like Neil sweetly holding the award with the finger not pointing rudely towards us. A gentleman as well as Godlike.

It makes PSB one of the best for NME.

At the end, "PopArt" is the global perception.

Just realized through some research that the awards are actually statues of hands giving the middle finger? What the actual f*ck. Poor taste and very embarrassing. This audience doesn't know what's really going on unfortunately and there seem to be several uncomfortable "quiet" moments when you can hear the crowd over the music. Thankfully it looks like most of the comments on the FB live feed were posted by Petheads so the response seems mostly positive from a social media perspective (except for when they played Sodom...people really seemed to complain). The production on the show...or at least the vocals...was not that good. Neil did, for the most part, sound good though.

Regardless I'm still thrilled to see them in Leeds and Manchester this weekend!
It was a boozy, noisy crowd in the pit, but the crowd members were very warm to PSB despite many of them being there for other artists and/or the event itself.
What was the sound like in the room Sandy?
It took a bit of getting used to, my ears were ringing when I got home. Considering it was a one-off event, not bad. I'm hoping for really nice sound at The Armadillo in Glasgow by the way, I've just scored a great seat!
What's for supper?

The stream is gone from Facebook. :(
Have a look at my taste in music:
http://www.last.fm/user/NikacPokac

That’s the thing about negative energy, about hatred. It can be positive. It throws into relief all the things you know you like. It tells you, by elimination, what you’re about. Sometimes you can only define yourself by what you hate. Hatred becomes an inspiration; it makes you think, “What I’m doing now I totally believe in, and I don’t care what other people say.” Guided by hatred, you don’t have to follow the herd. - Neil Tennant

They rated Nightlife too highly, IMHO.
