I fully agree with this, I did struggle with the new album but having seen the tracks played live it's totally grown on me now, you can guarantee if they'd carried doing albums in the style of the first one they be being accused of being one trick ponies by the very same people that are slating them for changing.

They would not have headlined three Glastonbury's if style did not change, or possibly reached the number of albums they have. 

Would be like a better version of The Reytons.

I saw The Cult at Scarborough the other night. Lots of ageing goths isn't a pretty sight. Tbf Ian Astbury was in fine voice and Billy Duffy was always a cracking guitarist.

Wayne Hussey of The Mission looks better these days than he did in the 80s 

I saw a double header of The Mission and The Cult at the O2 a few years ago, Hussey was great until he waved a Liverpool flag around at the end of the set and turned the mood, I didn't think Astbury's voice was great that night and he made a mess of She Sells Sanctuary disappointingly.

Pulp at the Arena on Friday, can't wait.

Both sounded good tbf last Thursday. 

The Mrs really wanted to see Pulp in Scarborough but couldn't get tickets, ended up doing the expensive route of day tickets to Latitude next Friday so she can see - she makes no apology - her favourite fella from Sheffield

Went to the Hawley/Pulp double header at the Arena last night, RH sounded great and Jarvis is such an amazing frontman, great gig.

James at Piece Hall Halifax last Friday night, superb gig.  Had 2 good supports , Tom A Smith (I think) - good young band and he's clearly going places and Jamie Webster, Scouse singer/acoustic singing socially aware stuff, not as awful as it sounds tbh.  James themselves were just great, such a fluid visual band and they played a great mixture of old album stuff and the hits.  Outside in the evening sun, just a really good night.  They played 2 nights and the following night was when the heavens opened, they had storms and had to stop the set for 30 minutes - luckily we didnt get any of that.

A word for the Piece Hall - what a stunning venue it is, if you get a chance to see a band you like there I'd urge you to go.  The money spent on the refurb of the place has been spent well.  Also it's organised so well, no long queues for drinks/loos etc.

Went up to Edinburgh last month to watch the Killers. They can rock a venue. The show was brilliant with great bangs and lights at the end. Brandon Flowers is fantastic live. Johnny Marr backed them up. He's a miserable sod. Anyway he came on with the Killers and they did a fantastic version of This Charming Man. A great band live if you get the chance!

Few weeks ago went to the Brudenell Club in Leeds (my favourite gig venue) and saw Fiona Lee (acoustic singer/songwriter from Hull, I've known her a few years and she's just so bloody talented.  Girl Scout, from Norway I think and TheCoachParty.  All three were great and it was a top top gig.

I'm really enjoying getting back into watching bands I don't know a lot about in smaller venues.  That said, I've just booked tickets for The The in Manchester next September and Echo & The Bunnymen in Leeds in March.

Go to lots of Gigs but never been to this venue.  Must give it a go.

Saw New Order in Leeds last Saturday, a shame they parted ways with Peter Hook but still a great show and fantastic set list.

Went to the Leadmill on Tuesday to watch the play New Dawn Fades which covers the story of Joy Division, really enjoyed it.

I was at the New Order gig too, fantastic show but what the feck the support band was about ive no idea. Apart from the bee keepers I enjoyed them

Saw The Charlatans at the Octagon tonight having last seen them there 32 years ago, Burgess sounds great still and the band were on top form, good selection of songs, really enjoyed this.

My eyes (or brain) were not working right and read that as The Christians at first !!

Nearly booked this but spent too much on gigs recently and seen them loads.  Always excellent.

Unfortunately it's become a very expensive hobby.

Going to Manchester on Friday to see David McAlmont of McAlmont & Butler fame with his new venture with Hi-Fi Sean.  They're on at Band On The Wall which is a new venue for me.  I've listened to the album a couple of times and while it's no McA & B, the voice is still in fine fettle.

Then in March I've got Echo & The Bunnymen in Leeds and Drella at The Underground in Bradford.  Then a gap until September when it's The The in Manchester, so I'll be looking to squeeze a few more in.

Been looking at the The The dates, he's an artist I'd love to see.
