Get yersen off.  Better than pulling your hair out when Daz decides to play Shadipo at Right Wing Back and Paterson and Kamberi up front to build up their volume for potential Play Off games.

Well the bottle and half of wine that was threatenin' to get drunk got smashed in those last 20mins....how was the gig Matt?

Was Steve Craddock with him?

I went to a 6 Music event in Manchester in 2009, it was a free event and we went to see Placebo on the Friday night at the International....there were about 250 people in a fairly large venue and nearly all of em just talked throughout....Brian Molko sulked a bit and the band walked off 3 songs in to the set....it was being recorded as well!

Steve Craddock was in ocean colour scene ( I’m sure you know that but) OCS we’re actually Paul Wellers backing backing band  but went on their own (ish)

My favourite amateur band. Good musicians and some lovely vocalists 😍

They are based in Oz, so I'm unlikely to get to see her them, so I watch them on You Tube. They do cover versions of popular pop songs, but they do them well.

A couple of links to their practice sessions.

Yeah, he's had a few session musicians that have gone into "bigger" things, Alan White of Oasis was another and there was a rhythm guitarist that became famous......so famous I've forgotten his name ...! 😁

Hope the acoustics have changed in there, last time I went was to see Reverend and the Makers in about 2008, sound was awful.....

 

Footnote: the drummer from Kaiser Chiefs, who were supporting, got a bit of a hiding backstage, apparently for being an overly aggressive arrogant twat....or so we were told by someone close to the band.....

Not much of a live music fan, the world's moved on from the 1950's.

Been going to a few 'anniversary' dance music nights and next one up is Fat Boy Slim on Brighton Beach in July.

Missed the 25th anniversary of Niche last year, but not sure holdinjg it in a woolworths had quite the same vibe. Old @Neville Facking Bartosdid a 4hr set apparently

Some tasty gigs, I am envious living abroad and not being able to see any live music for years. Just had a quick scan and Sigur Ros will be in Seoul this summer. Not my usual style but I can imagine they would be good live. Standing tickets from 90 quid......

@Andyben my ten year old daughter has been sharpening up her mixing skills. Sent a clip over to a lad I know in Ibiza and he said "get her on a plane, I'm doing Mambo in the afternoons" Her reply. "Didn't you say Rich does Es Paradis at midnight"

🤣🤣🤣

Just done 2 gigs in a week - and at new venues to me

The Levellers at Aylesbury Waterside - actually a theatre but they take out the seats downstairs and it was terrific sound quality in there. Most middle aged former crustie audience crowd you can imagine 

Friday night was my old faves The Wedding Present at Northampton Roadmender - got a vibe of The Leadmill though the outside looks like some 70s local govt mistake. 

Next one is Mogwai at Ally Pally on Friday - never seen before  and never been before. Apparently very loud and I guess not much singing along more shoe gazing head nodding

I will disagree with Andyben though, live music is where its at. I can happily listen at home but like football being part of the crowd is much more fun

Did you catch any of the support act ?  Oh my words - my ears have not recovered.

On another note did not realise it was an 18+ gig so Fin at just 16 got asked if he was 18 as we went in.  To be fair to him he lied quite convincingly.

I think that is a Seamonsters album gig - same as the Northampton one the other day. They basically played that album in order in full without stopping for breath, then 2nd half was more a general playlist. As he mentioned he now as over 300 songs in the back catalogue to choose from and what I like is they will dig right thru that not just play the usual songs

From the Stonedead website, pal:

"Newark Agricultural Showground

Lincoln Road, Winthorpe, Coddington, Newark, NG24 2NY

Newark Showground is a showground in Newark, Nottinghamshire. It makes up 200 acres of the former RAF Winthorpe Airfield."

There's an aircraft preservation site there, too.  In 2019 you had to drive past a Vulcan bomber to get out and they flew an old wartime DC3 'Dakota' around the music crowd on the Saturday afternoon.  Last year it was a WW2 fighter.  I don't know about the antiques but there's plenty of room and buildings for one: it's huge.  I think there's a livestock show, too.

I live 8 miles away from there.......

So Mogwai last night at Ally Pally. Incredible playing and sound but a bit lacking in a gig atmosphere that I would ordinarily prefer. I mean you aren't going to go for a sing a long with em, lots of head nodding along is about the level of audience participation. Blokes just stood around playing guitars well but miserable fuckers at the same time 

Could have been worse though, train back out of London had a few with David Gray t shirts on, where it was apparently £120 a ticket

I have just seen that this great city of ours is wilfully ruining it's entire musical heritage by allowing the fucking Script a stage to perform on ....a sad sad day....it really is the day the music died......

Hopefully a stray howitzer will knock the fuck out of the arena on Thursday night....

That's what I was thinking, to me Mogwai are a headphones band...very good musicians though....hard to go berzerk to I guess....

I think that was my conclusion 

Can't fault the muscianship and the sound they created, but it was a bit passive in terms of audience participation 

Tbf the crowd there who were loyal fans were more than happy with it, I think having seen a couple of bands in the preceding 2 weeks I know which I prefer
