i can think of nothing worse! being in close proximity to psb fans without the prospect of the boys to relieve the torture. every time i go to a psb show, i'm always embarrassed by the fans, both in terms of their physical appearance and the way they dress, especially the home made t-shirts. and in case anyone thinks i'm being harsh, neil and chris have said similar themselves, in literally, when they discuss the horror of coming face to face with their fans for the first time and discovering that the fans weren't, in the main, the cool, the leftfield, the disenchanted, but could quite easily be simply red or queen fans.
so no, count me out.
Lol. This made me laugh. Too
I agree with you, it is hilarious.
What an interesting opinion of one's fellow fans jmh has. And if that is Neil and Chris' opinions of their fans... somewhat disheartening at a very minor level.
Not everyone can be cool. Or interesting. Most regular folks are... examples of social churn and conditioning that have made them slaves to fashion or, simply, ordinary. They have little time to ponder high fashion, or decide to somehow forsake normal society to be non-conformists (who are actually conforming in their own way). I dare say, the "Sophisticated Others" of our society, as of 2021, are decidedly unlikely to attend PSB concerts. Or erstwhile conventions. As a psychologist I find it all fascinating.
I guess next time I go to a concert, if that ever happens again, I better dress to the nines; designer everything topped with a nice cashmere trench coat. It will be hot, but at least I will meet certain expectations. Or maybe I should perhaps dress more intellectual, like Trotsky for example. Or avant garde like Jacobim Mugatu.
Or Marshal Murat.
