Loud, very bright at times, highly energetic, bloody good.

Not the best gig I've ever been to (that's still a close call between Slade at Aber's King's Hall in '84 and Springsteen with the E Street Band at Wembley in Summer '85), but well worth the admission price. Ser Reznor is obviously committed when playing live, though I was expecting someone scrawnier. I'd probably have enjoyed it more if I'd been more familiar with the music, particularly the newer stuff, which he started with. I like what's on With Teeth but I've only heard it through a couple of times. No Perfect Drug unfortunately, which is my favourite, but a stonking finish with Starfuckers and Head Like A Hole. A few lighters lifted in salute, but the orange flickering was far outnumbered by the blue/white glow from camera phones. One to go to again, when I'm more au fait with the oeuvre.

Penny now owes me a Joe Jackson gig...
