It seems I have some competition for pics from the BBC - http://www.bbc.co.uk/birmingham/content/image_galleries/bloc_party_oct_13_gallery.shtml. I say competition, but IMNSHO they're not actually terribly good. Certainly I wouldn't swap them for my pics earlier in the year http://www.disturbing.org.uk/portfolio/portfolio-bp-nme05.php.
Of course, the other reason I don't care is that I had a storming night in Wolverhampton with Alabama 3, toxicpixie, holaholaamigos and Jools. After my previous experiences I didn't hold out much hope - but I could not have been more wrong. It was a superb gig, lots of fun, great music and left me with a smile on my face. And 3.5GB more of photos in the queue :-/
