Mine too... with the subsequent tour and the wonderful car park send-off we gave the band after the Sydney gig, one of the most vivid moments for me.

I'm listening to the radio show on the anniversary of 'Heroes' presented by Florence from FATM who has the most excrutiatingly dull, irritating, monotone speaking voice and it's making the whole programme very hard going.

Honk and the machine.
Good men, the last wave by, crying how bright
Their frail deeds might have danced in a green bay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.
