and they gave me a rose...

The night starts here at The Zoo, with the arrangement of red and pink roses over the drum kits, mike stands and keyboard; the roses will not last the night.  The night was not as I had expected; the band members stood inches away from me worn, short and utterly human, they are truely sad robots.  Amy was the epitome of rock and roll women, in her shagged black dress and sex hair.  The song highlights for me were definitely Ageless Beauty, Midnight Coward and Calendar Girl the song of choice for the encore, of which Torque stood at the top of the stage and yelled I'm Alive many times at the top of his lungs, and I sang it right back, as I too felt alive.  At the introduction to Midnight Coward the band rambled something about Singapore that suggested that if everyone can't have sex on Valentines Day then no one can! it made me chuckle anyway. The band threw a rose my way at the beginning of the show; I missed, mid show; I missed, at the end; third time lucky.  I didn't get an actual ticket for the show, so I'm going to press it in a book and keep it as my momento.  Unfortunately Stars didn't play my favourite song which is apparently about fucking someone to death, that is "One More Night"... I guess that leaves me wanting more, and gives me a reason to see them again someday.
