17/6/2002   Sherwood and green contact lenses   by Sarah
  Saturday has to be one of the most bizarre days of late. The aim - to go and see Pulp in Sherwood Pines near Nottingham. So we set off as usual from the back of beyond in Clapham and nearly missed the train (as usual). Getting there on time we were suprised to see that the train was pulling away from the platform with all doors open and swinging. So in true Western style we lept aboard, only to face a Midland Mainline bloke legging it down the carriage juggling keys and shouting incoherently. It didn't get far and then after 20 minutes of hurried debate on the platform between guards etc we were all kicked off the train to await the 'tubostar' stopping everywhere you never want to go train. Wandering up the platform I managed to thrust a Pretty demo at Mark Webber who had also been thrown off the train - very strange.
So by that point Clare was on adrenalin from signal passed at danger travel experience (she knows a lot about trains) and I was feeling a bit sick from encounter, and Howard was cross since they kept announcing the football score over the tannoy and he didn't want to know (apparently they had to do it, it's company policy...).
After tea with Clare's parents which was very charming of them, we went into the forest to see the gig. A drunk guy spent half an hour telling me that the Strokes are great and getting cross when I didn't agree. Then he decided that I must be wearing contact lenses since my eyes are green, I did try to explain that it was natural but he just wandered off to fall over.
Watched Pulp standing in between drunken flag waving England fans and Jarvis Cockers Mum and sister. During Joyriders, the England fans were being absolute wankers and Jarvis' mum gesticulated wildly at them in "This song is about wankers like you" fashion. Sometimes it's bizarre being the one who's just watching, and not with people in gigs. But then despite being in a darkened field in Nottinghamshire in the middle of a gig Maria from work bumped into me at that point.
The gig was good, but as days go it had been a little too weird.
