SFA at the Dublin Olympia was the best gig I've ever been to.
The doors opened at half 7, and thats when myself and Ciaran got
there.We almost didn't get in the gig because they were checking out
I.D. and we were ment to be 18, we are both 16, I charmed the evil
bouncers into letting us in though, I pointed to my T-Shirt and told
them I had came from London to see them, with my accent and the T-Shirt
I couldn't fail. El Goodo came on at 8 and played for an hour, they
were pretty fucking good.
SFA came on at about 9:15, by that time the place was packed, we were
really near the front, we were like 12 feet from the stage. They came
on with The International Language Of Screaming which was nice, then
they went straight into Ohio Heat, Atomik Lust and Zoom!, well, thats
how I remember it anyway...
The sound was great, everything they played sounded like it was from
CD, it was amazing. They played Cloudberries, Receptacle For The
Respectable, Run Christian Run, Ohio Heat, Something 4 The Weekend, The
Horn, Lazer Beam, Juxtapozed With U, Ice Hockey Hair, Hello Sunshine,
Frequency, Do Or Die and Calimero. I'm not sure what order in but, bah,
it was amazing. They started playing Fire In My Heart, but then Gruff
got fed up and shouted out he wanted to rock... I think thats when they
did Do Or Die...
Twas so good... At one point 2 guys invaded the stage, one started
stripping, the security didn't spot them for a while, but once they did
it was a mass orgy of big hairy smelly men on the stage. Cheering
ensued. Also one unlucky crowd surfer ended up falling down into the
doom of his human sea. (Ewww... Human sea could be taken another way...
When Slow Life and Man Don't Give A Fuck came on the place went crazy,
I was in furry heaven. All the people that go to SFA gigs are fucking
cool, fuzzy hair, interesting clothes, strange minds. I like it.
After the gig we were walking around the streets of Dublin chanting
"SFA OK, SFA OK, SUPER FURRY ANIMALS, SFA OK", every now and then we
could hear people shouting the same thing back, Dublin was coverd in
On the bus Ciaran and I were rather SFA OK...
OUT OF FUCKING CONTROL! @_o
