LAST night I was kicking myself and patting myself on the back at the same time. This is difficult. R.E.M. were playing in Berlin, at a place called the Waldbuhne, which is a natural amphitheatre in a forest. It is a great place. Half of me, the half of me that has seen them before and really enjoyed it, was wishing I was there; the other half, the half that's been stood outside in a rainy field watching bands with cold wet feet, was glad I was at home. My compromise was to listen to a couple of R.E.M. albums, do some painting and drink apple juice.
