Firstly, MAGNA is MASSIVE ... like a huge airport hanger type thing. Along one wall were some fantastic pics done by Pete McKee which I will post when I can.
Entered the main room with was longer than it was wide .... stall selling McKee prints, WARP merchandise and so on ... and at the back, booze !
The security at MAGNA were fantastic and even brought a chair out for my husband so he could sit next to me ... he was probably blushing but it's a good job it was dark.
Have to say, my eyes were more glued to the band than the film ... absolutely fantastic. Could catch sight of the screen showing where the timing etc., so was fascinated ... I still cried at the end, even though I have watched it upmteen times.
Chatted to Mark Herbert earlier and asked how he felt .. "I'm shitting myself ... absolutely shitting myself" ... I hoped not, as Mike was just off to the loo and am sure he wouldn't want to return to a sticky seat.
Met Pete Mckee and he offered to sign his book for me seeing as I was unable to get to the signing in the morning, which .. was lovely of him ..but didn't surprise me.
Met Shane outside after Hannah had been yakking to his sister for ages and got the photo above.
He said he was really wary about how people would react to his jokey moments ... and was really relieved and happy to hear the laughs.
It was amazing. My first night out in ages and I thoroughly enjoyed it.
No I met him outside. My daughter was having a fag with his sister and she sent me a text to get out and say hi. In saying that both Mark and Shane were jokey but nervous just before the "show" started.
They did a 7" music set after. Vicky got my vote for playing "Do i love you" Frank Wilson. If I could have stood up I'd have dances, as it is I waved me arms madly.
Mark and Shane did one together picking up classics like Message To You Rudy ..
