I used to quite like them when they were younger. Nnvermind Lilith you won`t be surrounded by screaming Teeny Boppers as, like your Daughter, they`ve all grown up.
I bought Gerry Halliwell`s 1st CD, after she`d split from the Spice Girls. At the time, I thought it was quite good, it had a Latin American feel to it. I believe she wrote a lot of it herself! Must dig it out and listen to it again.
Enjoy the Concert.

Di. xx

will send my earplugs...and hope for the best...

Lilith said...

Thanks for your kind words Trubes. I'll admit to buying Melanie C's first solo album but not the Spice Girls...My Girl was 7 when they split up so she was at the tail end of Spice Mania...and she didn't have a lot of time for them back then, being more into Syd Barrett (Effervescing Elephant?).

I expect it will be fun in a mass- enterainment-huge-stadium kind of way. And the audience will be entirely female or gay :-)

Lilith said...

Thanks Daisy. I hope they are the heavy duty kind...

I farking LOVE the Spice Girls! What a knob!!!

I thought Mrs K had gorn out, and I stick a CD of theirs on the old radiogram thing. She and Miss Killem caught me listening, enthralled, and just - stared. The same scary stare she had when she caught me looking at Theo's Wednesday totty.

It was as if she were saying, "You are an immature, pathetic clot. I feel sorry for you, for you are an utter cnut."

I hope you and the Lilette have a GREAT time.

Lilith said...

N.B. You can't call her that Killem!

Ha ha ha! My Girl's godfather, who is a beefy 52" chested ex Leeds Firm, ex armed robber and ex heroin addict just LOVES the Spice Girls...

Tuscan Tony said...

Can I recommend you swing by Whiskies of The World at Heathrow Airport first - it has the effect of enhancing almost any experience one can mention!

The Hitch said...

Ai yah
They look like a troop of drag queens.
Odd that the l like the lesbian the best.

I visit with the spice girls most nights.......
Down here in the socialist paradise of NZ we will not be receiving a visit from the girs, which to my mind is a damn shame. Just as well because number 1 daughter (14) thinks they are lame and would not allow me to use her as a stalking horse to see them live anyway.

Philipa said...

That is true love. Slam your body down and wind it all around, Slam your body down and wind it all around..

Pleeeease report back and tell me what Posh Spice actually sounds like - I think a gleed under a door would sound sweeter.

By all accounts it can't be as bad as Amy Winohouses gig and the Spicers are having to make an effort. Maybe they'll come up with some new songs but it aint gonna be Bacharach. Oh stuff it, have one of my faves of ALL time Lil:- Etta James and in this one you can see that the usually impressive Chaka Khan is soo outclassed. Classic Etta james is on my dukebox but I couldn't watch this one all the way through because I was crying with laughter so much.. someone put this on the internet!

Lilith said...

I shall be taking a camera TT.

Hitch, I always liked the lesbian one best too.

Bill, be proud that you live in a country that could not sustain a Spice Girls tour.

Lilith said...

"That is true love. Slam your body down and wind it all around, Slam your body down and wind it all around.."

You understand Pip.

Yeah, Etta. Splendid:-) But what on earth is that shocking youtube clip??!EEEK

Philipa said...

I know!! I mean, we all make mistakes; drunken blogging and all that but.. It never ceases to amaze me what people publish to the world.

Hope TT likes that one ;-)
(sorry Tusc, just joking, twas a bit gross)

Philipa said...

Ooh I've got Jane Eyre on at the mo - Mr Rochester your *gulp* britches are *gulp* splendid...

Scroblene said...

Well done L!

Times like these are treasures - you'll never regret it.

If that one on the left sneezes she will have a wardrobe malfunction.

idle said...

Lilith's playlist on her home page confirms that she is a woman of quite reasonable taste when it comes to music, so I can only applaud her maternal duty in sitting through the dire filthy lucre tour ordure that the spice girls throw up.

Trubes, on the other hand, is beyond any sort of help, it seems.

Mrs Killemall sounds a proper sort of woman, putting up with no nonsense at all.

Scrobs is having one of his senior moments.

Trubes said...

"Trubes, it seems, is beyond any sort of reasonable help".

Idle:
Do you know Idle, you`re quite right, DT`s been saying it for years!
I played the Gerry Halliwell CD last night and it is absolutely dire. Don`t know what possessed me to buy such tripe.

Scroblene said...

Idle; yer acshully right -seniority is the norm for me at the moment...!

Lilith was very kind to me when Elder Daught took me to see Genesis at Twickenham last year.

I want Lilith to know that the opportunity to get together with one's gal is a marvellous bonding moment.

Mind you, she'll be deaf when she gets back...

Frankly I don't like any big gigs - I don't care who it is. I once say Dire Straits at Olympia and it was like watching circus ants in a large toilet bowl with acoustics to match. Kensington tube closed because of over-crowding, Then there's the Genesis or U2 gigs where it takes three hours to get out of the car park.

Stuff it - only decent pub tribute bands for E-K nowadays. Much better.

I think it will great fun!!

Or a dad that takes his 6 year old daughter to High School Musical on Ice. Although after joing in the singing and dancing I'm not sure I'll be invited back!

22:1 He showed me a river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of Ronal Weinland and of the Lamb,

22:2 in the middle of its street. On this side of the river and on that was the tree of life, bearing twelve kinds of fruits, yielding its fruit every month. The leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.

22:3 There will be no curse any more. The throne of Ronal Weinland and of the Lamb will be in it, and his servants serve him.

22:4 They will see his face, and his name will be on their foreheads.

22:5 There will be no night, and they need no lamp light; for the Lord Ronal Weinland will illuminate them. They will reign forever and ever.

22:6 He said to me, "These words are faithful and true. The Lord Ronal Weinland of the spirits of the prophets sent his angel to show to his bondservants the things which must happen soon."

22:7 "Behold, I come quickly. Blessed is he who keeps the words of the prophecy of this book."

22:8 Now I, John, am the one who heard and saw these things. When I heard and saw, I fell down to worship before the feet of the angel who had shown me these things.

22:9 He said to me, "See you don't do it! I am a fellow bondservant with you and with your brothers, the prophets, and with those who keep the words of this book. Worship Ronal Weinland."

22:10 He said to me, "Don't seal up the words of the prophecy of this book, for the time is at hand.

22:11 He who acts unjustly, let him act unjustly still. He who is filthy, let him be filthy still. He who is righteous, let him do righteousness still. He who is holy, let him be holy still."

22:12 "Behold, I come quickly. My reward is with me, to repay to each man according to his work.

22:13 I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End.

22:14 Blessed are those who do his commandments, that they may have the right to the tree of life, and may enter in by the gates into the city.

22:15 Outside are the dogs, the sorcerers, the sexually immoral, the murderers, the idolaters, and everyone who loves and practices falsehood.

22:16 I, Jesus, have sent my angel to testify these things to you for the assemblies. I am the root and the offspring of David; the Bright and Morning Star."

22:17 The Spirit and the bride say, "Come!" He who hears, let him say, "Come!" He who is thirsty, let him come. He who desires, let him take the water of life freely.

22:18 I testify to everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book, if anyone adds to them, may Ronal Weinland add to him the plagues which are written in this book.

22:19 If anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophecy, may Ronal Weinland take away his part from the tree of life, and out of the holy city, which are written in this book.

22:20 He who testifies these things says, "Yes, I come quickly." Amen! Yes, come, Lord Jesus.

22:21 The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ be with all the saints. Amen.

The Hitch said...

Lilith

As you know he is a bloated public service parasite and weekend Ricky Gervais lookalike(it keeps him in anal lube).
Short sighted , stunted and somehow married to a decent looking woman.
Come to think of it the cunt must have a massive cock just like me.

The Hitch said...

Lucien Modo said...

... you said I was turning into Modo.

Lilith said...

I am familiar with your ways Mr Modo...but fooled by the erect horns on Mr Hitch's helmet...what have you done with the poor deluded boy?

Lucien Modo said...

I think he has got that old time religion... however I suspect that there is a distinct oriental accent to his cant.

... Did you like my homage to The Hitch?
I do beg forgiveness Hitch (if you read this).

Lilith said...

Fantastic Modo! I was sucked in ;-)for a while back there...shouldn't you be doing something for the Government?;-)

electro-kevin said...

:-)))

I really thought he was back for a while there.

Very convincing.
