Saw Glenn Tilbrook at The Devil’s Arse at Castleton the other weekend.

Not got anything planned at the moment.

Saw him at the Picturedrome, Holmfirth, about three years ago.   Classic venue, that.

First gig of the weekend last night with Paul Weller in Manchester.  28 track setlist and didn't disappoint but not as good as at The Octogen last year. 

What really wound me up yet again was the number of people there chatting constantly.  What is it with these people. 

Anyway on to the Sheds in Birdwell tonight.

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!

Yes Matt, Craddock was part of the band, as was Andy Crofts and also Steve Pilgrim who has some decent stuff of his own. 

Musically, flawless and brilliant about from the fookwits either talking or being more bothered about getting their 2 Pint Pots of Lager for 13 quid. 

Be much more civilised in Birdwell tonight 😂

The Brud is a cracking venue. First time I went was to watch my mate's band. They reformed for the club's anniversary year and sold out within a day. Absolute banging night and I don't even really like their music. 

Good food as well. They do Pieminister pies. 

Just polished off a steak and blue cheese pie, mash and mushy peas. Very nice.

Just bought tickets for Richard Hawley at The Leadmill in August. 
Only tickets left for one of the four nights he’s doing if anyone was wanting to go and hadn’t got round to getting their tickets yet.

Magma supported by The Utopia Strong (Steve Davis' band - yes THE Steve Davis) - Band on the Wall, Manchester

ABC - City Hall - The Lexicon of Love 40th Anniversary Tour - I went to that tour at the City Hall back then

That's literally a 15 min walk for me now ....if we weren't playin tonight I'd have gone to that!

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.

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.....
