Gill Posted February 8, 2007 Share Posted February 8, 2007 Hi everyone - my first post. I'm probably not your average Mika fan as I'm somewhat older than he is (let's just leave it at that!), married with two children, and I work in a primary school. We're ALL Mika mad musicians in our family. The first time I heard Mika was lying in the bath one Saturday morning months ago (late August or September), listening to Jonathan Ross I think, when Grace Kelly came on. I just couldn't ignore something that original, talented and happy! Ever since I've been saying "Just you wait..." to anyone and everyone. How fantastic that I can now say "Told you so!" I've spent the last few months trawling the net for any downloads I could find, so we already knew over half the tracks on the album when we bought it on Monday. Couldn't believe my luck last week when I won a t-mobile competition to go to the Berkley Square gig. Took hubbie as my +1 and we were right at the very front so had the most amazing view (if not sound - but I didn't care). Absolutely amazing. Couldn't believe just how polished, professional and fresh his stage presence is, for someone who's only just broken through. Time, methinks, to get more serious with the piano practice. I'd love to be able to reproduce GK like his acoustic performances. But it's probably been too long and I'm too rusty these days (*sigh*). Off to see him again at Birmingham Barfly on Feb 23rd. Pity the gigs all have a minimum age - the kids are fuming with jealousy!! Hope the ramble isn't too long - I'm not always this wordy! Nice to join the happy gang.
