    Today, I am listening to recent Radiohead gigs in Copenhagen and Amsterdam - enjoying them as I struggle to get my head around the NHS reforms of the 80s and 90s. I like the new stuff but it is Black Star and Planet Telex which I really like, like I am hearing them for the first time.

    Yesterday, it was Josef K and Bauhaus for that early 80s feel. So much stuff back then that I was only vaguly aware of at the time and I know I would have loved it - I was aware of Bauhaus, and had heard one or two tracks on the Dave Fanning show on RTE Radio 2, but no way of getting to hear what he didn't play...

    Sometimes, I wish I could write about music in a more profound way than "I really like that track" and "you know the bit when the drums go dah dah dah, d'nah!" but then I read some posey rock journalism and I go, nah, I'm better off.
