I was very interested to read your review of the Leeds gig as i was present at the Manchester leg of the tour.
However, my comments are less about the band than about your actual writing style. Although i cannot speak for their performance at Leeds i found the support act to be very different than you explained. Okay, not my taste in music either and perhaps an odd choice of support for The Fall... but please, your abusive comments strikes me as inaccurate and perhaps a little inappropriately personal. Perhaps i'm wrong, but i thought the purpose of sites like these were to present accurate reports of bands and a chance for the average joe to write. I'm afraid all your article revealed to me was lazy journalism. Had you had a bad night? Did you remember something witty someone had once said and think "sod accuracy - i'll put that in instead and hope no-one notices". And, i'm interested to know, did you sit and watch everybodies faces in the entire venue to gauge the crowds reaction? Or perhaps you feel you opinion is representative of hundreds of people. Because your cool right? And you know about music, right? And your a great journalist, right?
Or maybe - because i don't know you i really shouldn't be making vast generalisations about your reason for writing - something i obviously know nothing about!
Ooh, i think there might be a moral in there somewhere.
