Here’s the crowd a-throbbing at Metro Theatre in Sydney during Ash’s set. I’ve finished singing the song I sing with him each night (‘Fish out of Water’), so now I’m listening from backstage, weak and accidentally opiated. I’ve caught the illness half the country seems to have, and bought a course of medication at the chemist this morning, only to realize after gulping it down that it’s got Codeine in it, which is of course an opiate. A friendly lil’ cousin of Morphine and the like. Opiates are like, soooo not over-the-counter in the back in the U.S. I think that’s probably best.
