I won't be attending tonight's New York Dolls show in Glasgow. There are a number of reasons, none particularly watertight other than the fact that I swore that you'd never get me to cross the threshold of that venue again. So there's a certain amount of cutting off one's nose about this but really, my abiding memory of the last time I saw them was great so I don't want to futz with that. Anyway, I ain't going so I hope it turns out to be the show of the decade for all those who do drag their 'arris's along. As promised, here are the Morells tracklists. If they were playing then I would attend said venue so the rules are there to be stretched. I'm in no immediate danger of having to fold though. Short and sweet tonight folks, I'm out of here....

it was killer, the dolls had a ball, lots of fun and banter onstage. a couple of technical issues, but it didnt throw the band. I was at the front and there was a beautiful moment when Sami Yaffa said "Remember Arthur Killer Kane" but as a plea rather than a question and it seemed to take Johansen by surprise and they burst into private world and David had tears running down his eyes and he made a few verses and then his voice just gave out and had to stand facing the drum kit. He recovered and the song turned into a lot of others, but it was just a very human moment. There was a lot of playfulness and private jokes going on within the band, it was a lot of fun to watch up close

Great. That would never have happened if I had attended. Glad it all worked out.
