You should know this about me. I like Robert Forster. I really don’t like Phil Collins.

Robert Forster

So imagine my outrage on Saturday night.

There were only a couple of minutes to go before Robert’s ’15 Songs About Brisbane’ set at the Powerhouse’s outdoor amphitheatre. We were sat in place, excited – a little chilled, but mostly excited as it’s rare indeed we get to spend an evening out together, let alone one with such a charming racounteur in such intimate surroundings. Bit of drizzle, nothing to be concerned about.

All of a sudden, I’m hit by excruciating stomach cramps or pains or something.

I spend the next 30 minutes on my hands and knees in the disabled toilets at the Powerhouse, in agony. I think it can’t get any worse. I’m wrong.

Ten minutes in, the Powerhouse starts piping in Phil Collins’ ‘In The Air Tonight’…

    Entirely apt soundtrack to gastrointestinal agony.

    The question is did you pull yourself together enough to air drum to it?

    (cue legion of Basil Brush fans): “B00M! BOOM!”
