Review by neko:
We continue having great luck. The hotel have lost my sisters bag and can’t find it anymore, so we have to run around all morning, go to police etc. It’s a mess. Still without bag we finally make it to the train station. The train company operating direct trains from Leeds to Glasgow for L20 is on a strike today, yay. So we have to change twice and pay 3 times as much, wahey.
Anyway, somehow we finally actually get to Glasgow, get to our hotel here, get our room and are on our way to the Glasgow Gig on the Green festival! I am particularly looking forward to seeing the Prodigy at this one as it is way smaller than Reading and Leeds.
NOFX are on when we get there, they’re again wicked, making fun of themselves and in particular also the French. No Incubus today, so we’re going straight to Slipknot. Again their performance is rather boring, at least tonight they play their somewhat more catchy tunes Wait and Bleed and Spit it Out.
We sneak to the front row now, which isn’t particularly difficult with all the 13 year olds surrounding us waiting for Offspring. Offspring are not much different from last night, apart from tonight ‘Glasgow, you’re the best audience we’ve had for a long time’. a -ha! After they finish you can see the audience changing. The 13 year olds are leaving and everyone around us looks a bit more like my age now.
Prodigy again start the show with the new intro, followed by the new Nuclear. The latter now sounds much better already and I can see this new version working, especially if that would be released as a single. Also you can tell the audience is just way more into it tonight. While last night a great part were probably just there waiting for GNR, tonight EVERYONE is here to see The Prodigy and you can really feel the difference.
After Breathe then another great surprise, instead of Goblin they play an all new fill! I only heard it once until now so I can hardly remember, but its also downtempo with a cool piano line. Now Smack My Bitch up comes up and as always gets a great crowd response, Keith’s running down to the front again.
Next is Trigger, then again that Out of Space fill followed by Their Law. The cover of Nightboat to Cairo sounds good again, to a great part also because of the quality of the original track. The main part of the track isn’t even changed much in the Prodigy cover, but the instrumental bit in the middle needs definitely to be noticed. Poison follows, but the next great surprise is Baby’s got a Temper which actually gets a really great audience response tonight. Liam then throws in a fill from Climbatize before they start Mindfields and dissapear. As yesterday they come back for their encore with Firestarter and Fuel my Fire.
Now that gig really leaves me behind wanting more and kinda feels better than Leeds yesterday. 5 hours at the front today, and still everything hurts. We’re going back to the hotel and decide to go for a drink, but we’re so tired that we almost fall asleep while doing so.
