The Nightmare After Christmas

I discovered AFI in the days of Napster, downloading Third Season and God Called in Sick Today. When Art of Drowning came out I purchased it immediately and listening to it and looking at the liner notes felt almost like a religious experience, this music was made for me. I missed seeing AFI in Derby in 2001 as my parents thought my new obsession was a passing phase and wouldn’t let me go, but they made it up to me with this ticket the following year!
