I had the perfect way to celebrate April Fool's Day last Friday by seeing the brilliant band KILLING JOKE.
For years and years they have been an inspiration to me, so what better way to spend a joke filled day.
It was even in the lofty surrounds of the Royal Festival Hall on the South Bank in London.
Having seen them in virtually every venue in the capital, it was certainly an experience to watch them take to the stage in such a grand setting.

Another dynamite show followed, with an incredible sound from immaculate musicians. 
Graphic designer Mike Coles provided amazing visuals on the enormous screen behind the stage.

I think a little congratulations are in order as well... for the small band of merry-makers (me included!) who managed, in the small gap between the seats and the stage, to create a mini-moshpit.
Probably the first time the Royal Festival Hall has witnessed such an event!!

Stupidly I didn't bring my camera, so here is a pic of singer Jaz Coleman at the Shepherd's Bush Empire in 2005. With special thanks to Fabienne T, who managed to get a press pass for this concert to take this amazing picture!

 If you fancy having a look at them, check out this Youtube clip:
