Sponsor Me!It was around this time last year that Lisa and I forgot to go and see Lloyd Cole cause a commotion at the Komedia. I don't think we've forgotten any concerts since, but to be honest, it's hard to remember. So twelve months on, we're celebrating our total lack of recall by taking a trip down Memory Lane to see Erasure at the Brighton Dome tonight. It should be a memorable evening.

Not only have we managed to remember, remember the fourth of November (and our tickets for this concert), but the name of the support act rings a bell too. After a bit of investigation on the internet today, I discovered that supporting Erasure tonight will be Frankmusik, a 26-year-old singer-songwriter who used to a beatboxer named Mr Mouth. No, seriously. Despite being young enough to be my son (I was a mature 12-year-old), Frank has just produced Erasure's latest album, worked with Tinchy Stryder, and at the age of 23, supported Keane when we saw them at the Brighton Centre in February 2009.

Unfortunately, Lisa was breastfeeding a four-month-old baby at the time, so we arrived at the venue half an hour late, and walked in to the sound of Frankmusik saying "Thank you and good night!". I thought it might have been his opening rap, but it turned out to be his closing wrap-up. With a bit of luck we might actually hear some of his music tonight.

If you are still wondering which style of moustache to aim for, well I was watching an episode of Poirot this evening.  Now there's a challenge!
