Title: Gigs Post by: Bob's Orange on Sunday, February 18, 2007, 19:07:40 I am going to see Kasabian in 10 days in Strasbourg, Muse in Luxembourg in May (and at Wembley Stadium in June) and Chemical Brothers in Luxembourg in July. Was going to see The Killers in Cologne but back in the UK for a wedding that night :evil: Hoping more top acts will be coming to the Grand Duchy as well :beers: Title: Gigs Post by: blinkpip on Sunday, February 18, 2007, 19:18:10 Kings of Leon are at the oasis again. I anit going tickets are a rip off. £22 plus booking fee. Title: Gigs Post by: Simon Pieman on Sunday, February 18, 2007, 19:18:32 Scholes Title: Gigs Post by: Spud on Sunday, February 18, 2007, 19:19:14 Klaxons for me in May! £13 a ticket. Title: Gigs Post by: Bob's Orange on Sunday, February 18, 2007, 19:22:14 Interesting about the ticket prices. Kasabian is 21 Euro which is about £14 Muse is 38 Euro which is about £25 (the gig at Wembley is £40 and Klaxons are there as well :mrgreen: ) Chemical Brothers is 36 Euro which is about £24. Think tickets work out a bit cheaper over here! :mrgreen: Title: Gigs Post by: Spud on Sunday, February 18, 2007, 20:12:23 Kasabian gig here cost me £25 but it was well worth it as they were ace. Title: Gigs Post by: Bedford Red on Sunday, February 18, 2007, 20:40:16 Going to see the Killers next Saturday and Sunday! (i know) Kaiser Chiefs the following Sunday Paolo Nutini in April :oops: (xmas present for a friend and couldn't send her by herself) Manics twice; once May and once June and Muse at Wembley in June. Title: Gigs Post by: McLovin on Sunday, February 18, 2007, 21:57:31 I've only got Noel Gallagher at the Albert Hall coming up, my planning has been lame to say the least Title: Gigs Post by: reeves4england on Sunday, February 18, 2007, 21:59:43 Razorlight (end of March) is all I've got planned at the moment I dont have enough money to go to too much! Title: Gigs Post by: Bob's Orange on Sunday, February 18, 2007, 22:09:00 Quote from: "reeves4england" Razorlight (end of March) is all I've got planned at the moment I dont have enough money to go to too much!

Have to say I was dissapointed with Razorlight when I saw them overhere. Very short set, their encore was 2 songs which I didn't recognise, the lead singer has a face you'd never tire of punching and it wasn't loud enough. Hope you enjoy it more than I did R4E.

Well I know all of their songs, and don't really have a problem with Jonny Borrell even if he is a bit full of himself so I'm sure I will be fine. But thanks for your concern!

If you count over the last 12 months add on Take That twice, once in Birmingham and once in Cardiff. One had Sugababes supporting (not my kinda music) and one had Beverley Knight who was brilliant.

Title: Gigs Post by: Bob's Orange on Wednesday, February 28, 2007, 18:24:01 Kasabian last night in Strasbourg were very impressive. The lead singer was clearly off his face but got the crowd going and the band's energy and overall performance really got the place rocking. Weird venue, capacity of 750 standing and 150 seats at the back. We got lost on the way home though, should have taken an hour and a half but for some reason we ended up in Karlsruhe in Germany and ended up going back to Strasbourg to start again! Got home at 5am, shattered today!!

Adapted from (and to the same tune as) I Can Do It Without You by the Kaiser Cheifs Quote Our club doesn’t look the same, They want to move us down the motorway The County Ground’s where we want to stay, The board can’t even spell CVA We can do it, we can do it, we can do it, we can do it without you. we can do it, we can do it, we can do it, we can do it without you. Mark D’s been sacked again Packed his bags and got on the train. You've got nothing that’s clever to say, Nobody's listening to you anyway. 'Cos we can do it, we can do it, we can do it, we can do it without you. we can do it, we can do it, we can do it, we can do it without you. Because we know you’re not very good. La la la, la la la la la la la la la, etc. What you want here? It doesn't matter! I think you know that we’re better off without you. What about our club? It doesn't matter! Cos everything that's done is all about you Bill’s army’s crying out for change We hated you from the first day Mikey D is the one to blame So full of himself there’s no room for brains We can do it, we can do it, we can do it, we can do it without you. we can do it, we can do it, we can do it, we can do it without you. we can do it, we can do it, we can do it, we can do it without you. we can do it, we can do it, we can do it, we can do it without you.

Title: Gigs Post by: Rich Pullen on Wednesday, June 27, 2007, 12:44:16 Robert Plant & The Strange Sensation was a ridiculously good gig - the venue was tiny making the sound fantastic.

Apart from the Kaiser Chiefs that should be a good gig. 8) Title: Gigs Post by: Bob's Orange on Friday, July 6, 2007, 18:36:03 So another 'big' band come to Luxembourg and I leave feeling a bit dissapointed. Kaiser Chiefs just didn't come up to scratch for me, perhaps it was because the venue was half full and the atmosphere was a bit flat but I left a bit left down. Next up were Keane and I am probably going to get slaughtered for this but they were fabulous live, put in a really energetic performance and the usually laxadaisical (sp) Luxembourgers really responded to them, one of the best live performances I have seen, which was matched by Faithless who choose to play (in my opinion) their most famous song, Insomniac very early in the set. This was met with some top drawer moshing and despite not being able to jump up and down (yet) was one of those spine tingling moments that music can sometimes do to you. You know with Faithless that you are always going to get a good performance and they are worth going to see even if only for Insomniac, God Is a DJ and that old song that I can't remember.

You've missed an album there Mr Orange. The Optimist LP was their first album. Haven't heard it in years, but it's damn good. Mostly acoustic. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Optimist_LP Started a Turin Brakes cover band once, but our practices always turned into all night red wine, weed, and gran turismo sessions. Miss those days.

Don't think so. Did you go Friday then? Forking ace night, surprised I didn't see you, It was quite an intimate gig :) Title: Gigs Post by: Leggett on Sunday, June 8, 2008, 11:15:07 nah, went last night. was sposed to be up in the gods to the left of the stage but our tickets were reallocated, ended up with standing tickets but we sat next to the club wembley seats, thats a fucking posh bar they've got there, bastards! Title: Gigs Post by: STFC Village on Sunday, June 8, 2008, 15:37:52 JPJ and Jimmy were only there Saturday night, as i believed they filmed it last night Title: Gigs Post by: Sussex on Sunday, June 8, 2008, 15:57:49 Quote from: "Leggett" nah, went last night. was sposed to be up in the gods to the left of the stage but our tickets were reallocated, ended up with standing tickets but we sat next to the club wembley seats, thats a fucking posh bar they've got there, bastards!

We were in middle tier club Wembley seats Friday night to the right of the stage. No queues at the bar, padded seats and everything.. Just perfect when you get to my age! :D Title: Gigs Post by: reeves4england on Friday, June 13, 2008, 00:10:35 Wahey! Subways last night were amazing! And Koko is a great venue!

i saw silver mount zion (god speed you black emperor) there before when they opened up all the levels. it was muchos impressive Title: Gigs Post by: reeves4england on Friday, June 13, 2008, 13:56:27 Yeh, it was packed on every level, as you'd expect. Very different to anything I've been to before. The huge glitter ball is a nice touch too! Title: Gigs Post by: bennett on Friday, June 13, 2008, 19:00:28 now imagine seeing an atmospheric type band there and that experience. damn it was good Title: Gigs Post by: oxford_fan on Monday, June 16, 2008, 12:16:01 Radiohead next Tuesday!

Title: Gigs Post by: Bob's Orange on Sunday, June 22, 2008, 12:55:13 Well the 1 day festival in Lux was a hot affair, I now look like a tomato!! We got there at 11.30am just in time to see local act. Eternal Tango - Wasn't expecting much but was surprised to hear that they were actually quite good and played some decent tunes Cribs - Very early and low down in the order and I was surprised at how bad they were. First song My Bovine Public was possibly the worst performed song I have seen for some time. They dedicated a song to their brother that died earlier this year which was the highlight. Overall I wouldn't recommend them live. Culcho Candela - A kind of german hip hop/reggae act. I hate this style of music but have to admit live it was ok, aimed at youngsters more though. Anti-Flag - Appalling although the locals loved them. We Are Scientists - Superb, really good live and they are very funny between songs, the boy with the mustdash was hilarious! Mando Diao - Very good live The Kooks - Better than I thought, the crowd was really up for it as well. Good performance The Verve - Played a mix of old and new tracks (which were typical Verve songs). BitterSweet Symphony was a clear highlight in the singalong stakes although Lucky Man runs it close. Good to see a band I used to listen to at school and never got a chance to see earlier in life. Overall for 43 Euro, About £30 pretty decent value!

i saw silver mount zion (god speed you black emperor) there before when they opened up all the levels. it was muchos impressive

Awful sound at the Koko though. And extortionate prices for a beer (which turns out to be from a can). Anyone been to the new(ish) Camden Roundhouse? I see My Bloody Valentine have a residency there at the moment. That would be very loud, of course. Title: Gigs Post by: Simon Pieman on Tuesday, June 24, 2008, 16:22:50 Mystery Jets tonight. Not really heard much of their stuff - the songs I have I've either liked or thought were utter gash so it could be quite interesting. Title: Gigs Post by: adje on Tuesday, June 24, 2008, 19:30:57 British Sea Power in Brighton in Oct-looking forward to that.Neil Young(amongst others)down here in Kent,that's gonna be the highlight of my Summer.

I saw Eagles of Death Metal at the Koko a few years back - awesome, Josh Homme came on to play drums for the encore - he was fucked on something (probably listed in QOTSA's Feel Good Hit of the Summer!) But yes, sound is a bit of an issue but I like the venue though alot. Title: Gigs Post by: lebowski on Tuesday, June 24, 2008, 21:23:51 QOTSA have been shite since the mental, hard rocking, bald geezer left yes? He looked quite a bit like Jim The Anvil Neidhart.

Nick Oliveri is awesome - saw him play with the Dwarves post-QOTSA and was still amazing even with a naked gimp masked guy simply named HeWhoCannotBeNamed sharing the stage with him. :shock: Title: Gigs Post by: lebowski on Tuesday, June 24, 2008, 21:29:28 That's the fella. I saw QOTSA at Reading a couple of years ago and for the duration of their set he was on stage, stark bollock naked, with just a low slung bass covering his knackers. This may also have been the year when The Dillinger Escape Plan played and their singer did a dirty on stage and threw it into the crowd. Title: Gigs Post by: lebowski on Tuesday, June 24, 2008, 21:31:21 Hactually I think that was a different year. Carry on. Title: Gigs Post by: yeo on Tuesday, June 24, 2008, 21:32:52 he did a poo and threw it at the crowd? Title: Gigs Post by: lebowski on Tuesday, June 24, 2008, 21:35:10 Yeah. Into a bag, and then threw it at them, they threw it back at him, so he opened the bag, smeared it all over him and jumped in. That's why I don't go at the front at gigs.

Dammit, forgot he was on in town.

I'm seeing Frankie Boyle in November... Best Comedian I've seen in the last 6 months or so has to be the Aussie Jim Jeffries - he was awesome. http://www.thecomedystore.co.uk/merchandise/large_image2_22.jpg Title: Gigs Post by: Bogus Dave on Friday, June 27, 2008, 19:28:03 Jeffries is hilarious when on fighting talk Title: Gigs Post by: Jamiesfuturewife on Friday, June 27, 2008, 19:37:04 Quote from: "Samdy Gray" I'm going to see Lee Evans on Sunday, I think that trumps your Sean Locke 8)

I dont find Lee Evans funny though you big bum face :P Title: Gigs Post by: Simon Pieman on Friday, June 27, 2008, 19:52:24 My mum saw Sean Locke at the arts centre a few years back and said his act was hilarious. You should enjoy it. I hope he picks on you as well. Title: Gigs Post by: Jamiesfuturewife on Friday, June 27, 2008, 19:53:20 we are quite near the front - oh god I dont think I can cope Title: Gigs Post by: Simon Pieman on Friday, June 27, 2008, 19:55:26 Locke: Is anyone from Calne? Hand: Whaaaayyyyyy! Locke: I wondered why your husband looks like you. Title: Gigs Post by: Samdy Gray on Friday, June 27, 2008, 19:56:41 I got offered some Sean Locke tickets but turned them down because I didn't think I'd like him live. He's got a particularly dry sense of humour IMO. Title: Gigs Post by: Simon Pieman on Friday, June 27, 2008, 19:59:07 Oh yeah and the Mystery Jets surprised me as I thought their act was good all except that gash Two Doors Down song which is everywhere at the moment. Although the singer couldn't be more pretentious if he tried, as were most of the audience who seemed to love the skinny jeans contest. Title: Gigs Post by: Jamiesfuturewife on Friday, June 27, 2008, 19:59:08 :shock: The 3 other people Im going with are all from Calne too - maybe he could pick on them instead Title: Gigs Post by: Rich Pullen on Friday, June 27, 2008, 20:03:23 Quote from: "Si Pie" Although the singer couldn't be more pretentious if he tried, as were most of the audience who seemed to love the skinny jeans contest.

Its now my local festival! Looking forward to day 3, Sigur Ros and then Radiohead. What was the crowd like there, say compared to the UK?

It's a really relaxed festival - conditions were always clean, festival goers were generally not morons. 2006 will be hard to beat when I go there again because the weather was amazing and the bands were pretty good too. Also RW has a brilliant lay-out. Outside the festival site you have a long, straight road with bars and food stalls... which is really nice at night. The smaller stage is great especially considering the acts that have played in there - I saw Sigur Ros in the smaller stage that year. One bad thing was they didn't let you take any of your own drinks (inc. Water) into the site - I think you can take/get away with a camelbak thingy though. Oh and public transport was free when showing your festival ticket.

Re the transport, we have to get the train to Belgium which costs about 3 Euro and then for it to be free from there is great as it is quite far away I think.

Title: Gigs Post by: Rich Pullen on Sunday, June 29, 2008, 11:22:42 My transport was from Brussels airport - then to a train station which ushered us on to buses organised by the festival - the bus system was superb because it was bus after bus after bus... The queue was massive but didn't take 20 minutes because we were never stopped moving. Boo - I wish I went this year now.

The main is still pure class. Out of the support bands My Morning Jacket were very, very good although I'd never heard of them before. Guillemots were absolute bollox as was Rufus Wainright. Primal Scream were on another planet and Supergrass did what Supergrass do. Apparently the Hop Farm in Kent is going to be turned into a 3 day event next year. Great value for £50 but if you do go next year prepare for a 3 hour wait afterwards in the car park unless they get their act together.

Isn't that a case of joe public thinking it's a good idea and wanting it, rather than it being looked at as a viable option?

More than likely there's no truth in it. Sounds like a good shout to me.. but i'd have no idea what would actually be involved in getting it sorted. I've not even been in there - is it big enough?

Caught a bit of REM and then went to see 2manyDJ's in the tent, Twas awesome Day 2 - Patrick Watson - Excellent although a power cut cut short the set, Ben Folds, ace. My Morning Jacket, ok from what I heard from outside sitting in the sun. The Verve, class, looking forward to hearing their new stuff. Neil Young, total legend 2 hour set, top drawer Day 3 - MGMT, ace. Band of Horses - not bad. Editors, decent - Kings of Leon, decent - Sigur Ros, not as good as when I saw them last year mainly because stupid aussies and Irish were making loads of fucking noise as I was trying to listen to the music. Radiohead - Awesome, ended with Paranoid Android Day 4 - Almost dead by this stage!! Spent most of the day in the pub. Saw Raconteurs - Excellent, Beck - Top Class, Deus - Never heard of them but awesome, have since bought recent album Vantage Point which is ace!!

Where have you heard the rumour from then? I would imagine Swindon is a long way down the list of places where AMG would like another "academy" venue. Title: Re: Gigs Post by: Weasel on Sunday, July 13, 2008, 09:48:11 Quote from: michael on Sunday, July 13, 2008, 08:44:03 Where have you heard the rumour from then? I would imagine Swindon is a long way down the list of places where AMG would like another "academy" venue.

The usual reliable rumour source, friend of a friend who knows someone who lives next door to someones whose dog used to be owned by someone who'd heard the Carling Academy people were buying the old Mecca bingo hall. Almost definitely just someone thinking it'd be a good idea, and hoping out loud... Why, out of interest, would you imagine Swindon to be a long way down the list? What criteria would satisfy AMG to move up said list? I guess lack of student base would be a good reason... Plus we've got the Oasis.... :soapy tit wank: Title: Re: Gigs Post by: Bob's Orange on Sunday, July 13, 2008, 10:48:27 Quote from: suttonred on Saturday, July 12, 2008, 23:02:57 Sounds like a pretty decent line up, seen a few of them, but never heard of Patrick Watson, who's he?

He plays mainly piano and sings, with a band that consists of drums, bass and lead guitar. He uses some electronic device which I think records his voice and then he plays about with it. The guitarist also does some jiggery pokery like recording the noise of a balloon being deflated on his guitar and other such things and adding it into the mix. Certainly very interesting live.

I've also heard that, not necessarily a Carling but certainly a 3K gig venue for 2 years before it is torn down to build cafes / restaurants etc. Title: Re: Gigs Post by: michael on Sunday, July 13, 2008, 14:30:40 Well it would be good if they did build a proper 3k gig venue, there are definitely enough people here to justify one. I doubt AMG would be interested for the time being though, they would probably look at places like Leeds, Nottingham, Leicester, Southampton and even Reading before considering Swindon? Title: Re: Gigs Post by: Simon Pieman on Sunday, July 13, 2008, 15:48:12 Southampton I doubt as they have the Guildhall and one is opening in Leeds very soon (might already be open). But generally I agree that other towns would be a better prospect than Swindon, for any investor. Unless they were a local business.

We would turn up to gigs if decent bands played in a decent venue. Just because hordes of locals don't turn up to see some Swindon band play doesn't mean they wouldn't turn up for an established band.

Exactly. Title: Re: Gigs Post by: Simon Pieman on Monday, August 11, 2008, 20:41:23 I can see two sides to it. It will get the bigger bands in and it will get the people there. But places like that don't have big bands in every week. That said I know Dave has been working hard to get some more well known acts into Swindon and has done a good job so far. A venue of this size will only help so I'm glad if it all goes ahead ok.

The Shuffle went down a storm this year! The furnace was busier than i have seen it in a long time, i had a great night. The Rolly was also packed for their show. I was unable to make the beehive yesterday but am told it was rammed, even after your drummer decided to show his naked flesh!

Mogwai are easily the loudest band I have ever seen. I was deaf for a week after seeing them once in Bristol, and at Reading Festival one year they managed to blow up the PA system.

I've seen them a good few times over the years... certainly every album tour... I like KoL live because they just get on with it, no waffling on about politics etc. They're playing the Metro Arena in Newcastle which seems too big. Title: Re: Gigs Post by: crouchy on Tuesday, September 16, 2008, 19:28:24 Yeah i seen them in swindon and thought they were awesome, You will be surprised at just how big they are, they sold out the 02 arena in just under an hour, and listening to some of the tracks from the new album it will be one of if not the best of the year Title: Re: Gigs Post by: reeves4england on Tuesday, September 16, 2008, 19:59:37 Quote from: my-velocity on Saturday, September 13, 2008, 19:00:48 Ting tings 7/10 Subways 9/10 Pigeons 08/12 So far...

Good news, as the wife has tickets for him when he plays Leicester. We are also going to see Glen Wool at some point.

Going to see Elbow at Roundhouse on Saturday after the football, is it a smallish venue then?

I can't imagine it'll be too bad, with so few people. Title: Re: Gigs Post by: Saxondale on Thursday, October 9, 2008, 02:05:18 The roundhouse is 3000. Queuing is fine.

Prepare to be picked on then! I saw Frankie Boyle on Wednesday and was in Row B, he was very good and picked on all the front row, luckily he didn't get to the 2nd row.

That's the one. Its surprisingly good. I didn't know much about it before going and came away pleasantly surprised.

Was looking at that for Manchester but it's a tad close to Glasto and hopefully a couple of them will be playing. Saw Kay's sidekick Greggs' ambassador Paddy McGuiness last week doing stand-up last week. Was ok a bit to reliant on the crude factor, which I do enjoy but gets a bit tedious after an hour and a half. Title: Re: Gigs Post by: Samdy Gray on Saturday, October 25, 2008, 18:15:17 I saw Paddy McGuinness in Swindon a few weeks back Dazzza. Most of his stuff is funny, but like you say he does rely on his 'blue' material quite a bit. Title: Re: Gigs Post by: Dazzza on Saturday, October 25, 2008, 18:16:53 Did he have his bag of Greggs goodies and fling it across the place Samdy? I was three rows back and fucking dreading being picked out!

Title: Re: Gigs Post by: michael on Sunday, October 26, 2008, 21:58:45 Mogwai are very loud, last time I saw them I prolapsed my brain, which I haven't ever really recovered from to be honest with you. Title: Re: Gigs Post by: STFC_Chris on Monday, October 27, 2008, 02:09:05 Oasis were ACE! Roundhouse is tiny, quality venue.

well I didn't quite get a prolapesed brain, but I can concur that they are very loud! Zero stage presence but what an amazing wall of noise these boys create - top notch! Supergrass on Saturday up next!

A couple of years ago I went to a wedding and during the church ceremony they played a live CD of Bryan Adams and that bride and groom lip synched the words to eachother... it was hilarious. ...and that's all I have to say about that.

Mates of mine were on channel 5 news reecntly as they won the wedding video of the year or some such bollocks. The video was to the tune of Friday Im In Love by The Cure shot in a proper video style. Not sure it would have been my choice to do it like that. There was some lip synching to that as well. And on Gigs, Im at Shepherds Bush Empire for Fleet Foxes tonight. Who really are quite magnificent if retro.

Excellent. Really holds up well against the album live, which considering the 4 part harmonies they do is, I would have thought, pretty difficult to replicate. They've also got a real charm and prescence about them in person as well. There's definetly something more there than just a copy of the album. Audience was captivated, could hear apin drop during the quieter numbers. They're now doing 2 shows at the roundhouse in camden next feb. First one sold out already.

'Tis expensive, but the man is a legend. If you buy directly from the Oasis it's cheaper and I don't think there's a booking fee.

He played at K2 leisure centre in Crawley a couple of Fridays ago. Must have some sort of chlorine fetish! As you say bit pricey, but apparently it was very good. Obviously.

Couple of weeks back, one of my lady friends had done a 100 lengths of a swimming pool for a charity thing....despite the fact she'd had a good scrub afterwards, the smell and taste of chlorine didn't half linger in some out of the way places. :) Had I been a chlorine fetishist, then it would have been :cloud9: unfortunately I'm not.

I saw them at Rock Werchter a couple of years back and they were pretty decent. I'm pretty sure they tour England.

I think they're one of those bands which actually manage to be better live. Title: Re: Gigs Post by: Rich Pullen on Friday, December 5, 2008, 21:13:08 Haven't seen them for a few years now...

I'll get over it. It'll be better than the last attempt when they drafted in Roddie Radiation in place of Terry. Did I ever mention I met Lynval once? I was canvassing for Dave Nellist in Cov South East, and as we're going through the canvass sheets at the end of one street his name kind of lept off the page. There were about a dozen of us fighting for that canvass sheet but my friend Mark ended up getting to knock his door, with a crowd of us hanging around at the gate. He was sound, came out to say hello to us all and signed a load of merchandise for us to auction off to raise some cash.

Well they probably do if they're intending to do anything more than just tour and play the hits. I don't think they could write anything new, that you could define as new "Specials" material without him, he was too central to their writing process. Mind you all they need to do for the live shows is get in some psycho that can play keyboards and is happy to twat a member of the audience at every other gig.

Its been talked about or years and the staff have been living under the threat of this happening for years. Feel very sorry for the people who work there who are now out looking for other jobs when the live industry is slowing down. The Astorias owners are, as I understand it, going to replace the venue with another one in central London, however it will not be the same. Mind you it did smell terribly of piss in the alleys around there. Title: Re: Gigs Post by: Bedford Red on Friday, January 16, 2009, 18:52:46 The new venue definately won't be the same, and i know what you mean about the live industry, there's definately not as many gigs around at the moment, you can see that everywhere. It's a quietier time anyway this time of year but there was a lot more around this time last year. Only the big artists are selling out now (like Killers, Kings of Leon, Take That, Oasis etc) and the middle artists are struggling to sell out venues, so the poor staff at the Astoria will struggle to find something. At least i have the memories of most of the gigs i've seen there. Title: Re: Gigs Post by: Saxondale on Friday, January 16, 2009, 19:11:02 I work in the industry and last year over jan and feb had 24 gigs. This year I have 12 booked in.

Title: Re: Gigs Post by: michael on Friday, January 16, 2009, 21:00:49 I have stacked it down the stairs in the Astoria a ridiculous number of times, so I for one am glad that my favourite acts will no longer be frequenting this death trap of a venue.

Title: Re: Gigs Post by: Bob's Orange on Friday, January 30, 2009, 09:11:22 My dad went to see Mark Watson in Swindon on Wednesday - his review 'He was good, very zany and full of nervous energy but entertaining. He was born in Bristol and went to school there, but I guess has Welsh roots as he mentioned Paul Bodin missing the most important penalty Wales ever had.' I am hopefully going to see Iron Maiden in Bangalore on Feb 15th! Rock on! Title: Re: Gigs Post by: Rich Pullen on Friday, January 30, 2009, 11:20:25 I've seen Mark Watson and his act was all about "nervous energy". I believe he puts on the Welsh accent as a part of his act.

I believe he puts on the Welsh accent as a part of his act.

Yeah I saw him at Jongleurs in London along with Marcus Brigstock. Watson was very funny although he has been on TV panel shows and isn't particularly engaging so I guess isn't as quick witted as other comics. Title: Re: Gigs Post by: Rich Pullen on Friday, January 30, 2009, 11:33:26 I assume shows like Mock the Week have an etiquette where the regular panelists talk more. Plus they're heavily edited. While most of the guests just tell jokes from their stand-up routines anyway... Watson can't really do that judging from the show I saw.

Yeah, there are 3 guitarists. The one that stood out was Dave Murray although they are all cracking musicians. I dare say, given proper sound and lights/pyro etc it would be a cracking show.

Excellent set and the sound was brilliant - better than the last time I saw someone at the Oasis (Ash - about 4 years ago?).

It would appear that I am getting on a bit then - does not seem that long ago :) Don't think that we bothered with the support act at the time - think that the bar was more tempting.

Title: Re: Gigs Post by: mrOG on Tuesday, March 24, 2009, 20:07:26 When we got there at about 7:30-ish, they were turning away people from the downstairs bar.

All the lower bar had left were things like Red Bull and a couple of bottles of cider left >:( My mate said he saw KOL there recently and the bar service was far better that night. Ended up with a couple of bottles of Coke from the vending machines.... :cry: Title: Re: Gigs Post by: Bogus Dave on Tuesday, March 24, 2009, 20:08:24 KOL was a good 4-5 years ago too wasnt it?

That's what everyone ended up drinking at KOL too. Actually I now remember I was turned away from the downstairs bar at Weller, so went upstairs.

Devoted to recreating the atmosphere of a live Joy Division gig, Transmission emulate the sound of one of the most inventive, evocative and influential groups of their era. Joy Division were formed in the late 1970s and dissolved in May 1980 after the suicide of lead singer Ian Curtis. The remaining members went on to form New Order and have achieved much critical and commercial success. The influence of Joy Division, however, was far reaching. They were considered the pioneering band of the post-punk movement of the late 1970s and early 1980s. More than 20 years on you can still relive the dark cavernous sound of Joy Division through Transmission one of the leading UK tribute bands.

I saw a good few bands at the Corn Exchange, but my recall is of some before 70, as well as a few around 70. The stand out being the Bonzos...which I'd have down as possibly 68. I'm not very good with years...having seen a lot of them, they tend to blur. The other thing that sticks, is we always used to go in a pub called the Dolphin, as it was just about the only boozer in the Vize, which didn't sell Waddys, as spotty teenagers tend not to like ale. Coming and going between the Vize on a scooter in winter, was an interesting experience. Title: Re: Gigs Post by: leefer on Monday, May 4, 2009, 16:45:45 I bet...dodgy road even today.

I was born in Greenock, so you visited Cappielow? shame it was not a week or 2 earlier as they have been in great form and playing well. Think the weekend game was due to winding down at the end of the season with nothing to play for. It never stops raining up there, pretty depressing a lot of the time. Barrowlands is an awesome venue as well one of the best up that way.

I drive past Cappielow on the way to the in laws several times a year. I've been meaning to drop in for a game for about 5 years now but have yet to manage it. You have put me to shame. Quote from: Si Pie on Thursday, May 7, 2009, 22:55:38 Glasgow City centre is actually really nice.

Just can't get over what a good weekend it was,have to admit i wasn't expecting much from Glasgow.Would recommend it for sure.There is an amazing resturant called Arta,that is done up like a Baroque fantasy,i've never seen so many candles in my life.Although we didn't eat there as the chief outside having a fag told us the food was crap! My other half fell in love with a bar/resturant/brewery called West Brewery where they brew the beer to German purity laws,think for that place alone we're be making a return trip!

Would the news report go something along the lines of?: Concert goers seeking a Thriller have been left bemused by poor organisation and a lack of shows. One 'person' lucky enough to snap up tickets explained "He said he wanna be startin' something but he hasn't shown up. I think it's his human nature but he pretends he's a smooth criminal, whereas he's bad he's bad and he knows it." Critics suggest Jackson takes a hard look at the man in the mirror, remembers the time his fans gave him one more chance and suggest he's got to be there for his next show. His many fans however will be asking 'will you be there?'

It was pretty good Dazzza. Certainly not the best singer in the world but very very entertaining and between songs was extremely funny. I know you aren't going to see comedy but everyone left with a smile on their face. Certainly is charasmatic. Played 3 songs from his first album and the rest from the new album and I thought overall it was a pretty decent gig. Would recommend as the crowds will be better in the UK as well as in Lux, people barely move!

I'll verify that ! Good gig and very hot !!! Read the report in the adver today and the correspondant seems to have a real downer on Kasabian !!? , seemed to think the crowd were the only reason the gig got going, not from where I stood (or jumped), crowd and group fed off eachother.

Yeah, he's being over negative I reckon. There was a few instances where I thought the crowd reaction was a bit poor, but in general the atmosphere was fantastic.

I booked Nottingham before he annuonced Hyde Park - can't do both but would have preferred Hyde Park. Saw him last year and he's still an angry fucker. Fantastic live but don't expect much interation with the audience. Expect some shit hot guitar playing. Title: Re: Gigs Post by: chalkies_shorts on Thursday, June 25, 2009, 19:26:06 Neil Young was superb Tuesday. Anyone going to Glastonbury Friday or Hyde Park Saturday is in for a treat. He nearly appeared "happy" and engaged with the audience. He must be mellowing but his guitar playing is getting more brutal. Two hours of pure class. Laura Marling supported and was crap.

I'm not very good at describing bands, so here's wiki to do it for me: Quote Their distinct sound, characterized by high gain, extensive use of feedback and distortion, and frontman J Mascis's melodic guitar solos, were highly influential in the alternative rock movement of the 1990s, which is exemplified by the success of acknowledged fans Kurt Cobain of Nirvana, among others.

New album 'Farm' is very good - I'd recommend 'Without a Sound', 'Bug', and 'Fossils' as well for a start. TBH it's only recently I've started to explore their music further, having been a huge fan of 'Without a Sound' for ages. Saw them back in 2005, not long after they'd reformed it seems, and I didn't really appreciate it at the time. Hoping this'll be better. And the cover of 'Just Like Heaven' is ace.

Heard some Aussies on the tube after saying they thought it was crap (but then they agree with Ponting). Not my opinion. Although sound was on occasions not spot on, when they nailed it they were fucking good ! Noisettes excellent support too !

Strangely, i thought they were poor. In fact both times i've seen them in a field they've been crap. Finally caught them indoors (well, Wembley) and they were much improved. I don't think their sound works too well without something to bounce off. Just my opinion, like.

Title: Re: Gigs Post by: Bob's Orange on Wednesday, July 22, 2009, 09:53:17 Cold War Kids were great last night. Very short set and almost no interaction with the crowd but a real tight unit and the singer whose voice I don't really like on CD came over really good live. Title: Re: Gigs Post by: Saxondale on Wednesday, July 22, 2009, 10:15:06 The manchester orchestra last night. American band. Bloody marvellous. Nearly tore my face of they did.

It was great thanks mate, had a few cans of Tuborg but didnt see any chap looking like your avatar :) shame it pissed down then sunny then pissed down but it was a great day mate, did you get to see any of it? Title: Re: Gigs Post by: Saxondale on Saturday, August 1, 2009, 17:22:36 Yep. Saw a lot of it. Was running the blue bar, or maybe green bar, right hand side as you were looking at the stage, so had a nice view of it all. Had to close the bar at one point as it was getting a little unruly during the downpour and couldn't get anyone out of the bar! But generally a really good show. Pogues were good and the blockheads were just a bit weird with that bloke who's just like dury playing dury. Have to say the girls were better looking over the next couple of days at the lovebox thingy, but duran duran were still shit. Title: Re: Gigs Post by: Peter Venkman on Saturday, August 1, 2009, 17:26:18 Glad you enjoyed it, The Blockheads were fronted by Ian Durys old bodguard and were brilliant, as were Man Like Me, but it was a good time.

When tickets arrived all they were were two pieces of paper with bar codes on, e.g. ticketmasters download and print you own tickets option. Plus, they have the name of the guy that originally bought them on. I contacted the guy saying any tom, dick or uncle tom cobbly could photo copy these. They guy assures me its all kosher, his ebay record is good etc. So, still have them, come november there will be two twitchy bottoms outside the dublin o2 arena.

When tickets arrived all they were were two pieces of paper with bar codes on, e.g. ticketmasters download and print you own tickets option. Plus, they have the name of the guy that originally bought them on. I contacted the guy saying any tom, dick or uncle tom cobbly could photo copy these. They guy assures me its all kosher, his ebay record is good etc. So, still have them, come november there will be two twitchy bottoms outside the dublin o2 arena.

Poor form. I find couples who support different teams a hard concept. Especially if one is a glory supporting plastic and the other a proper fan.

only really rich hall, jimmy carr and gervais have been a letdown. had to give gervais another chance because the office is genius, but it seems he isn't that good without merchant. jimmy carr was outclassed by the support, the giant who now plays the headmaster on inbetweeners. bill bailey was ace, twice. alan carr was good, and had a then unknown michael mcintyre as support who was brilliant. trouble with the cheap gigs is the acts are very hit and miss. plus you have to get to london really, jongleurs around the country are chavvy shitholes with rubbish acts.

Thought his delivery was superb, his material a bit stale. He didn't make any real insights or good observational comedy, just a load of jokes about gays, racism, masturbation etc. Which he does well, but when you've heard it so often, you'd hope for a man of his intelligence he'd be able to go a bit deeper. Personally I just don't think he had enough time to write enough material of a really high quality with so many projects going on at the same time. Overall, I enjoyed it and I suppose you come to expect so much than Gerv that if he's only slightly below what you hoped you feel disappointed. The XFM radio shows are still by far and away the best work he's ever done, although they only worked so well because of his success with The Office.

That's my feeling exactly. Probably my favourite band of the last 15 years, but they're not as good now as they were 10 years ago. Saw them live a few years back and they played all the classics which was great, but I just don't like they're newer stuff. They went downhill after Stuart Cable left the band.

Join the club. I don't understand why people pay the money to go to the gig and then chat to their mates throughout the whole gig.

I have been to a few gigs in the last couple of years or so where I have been a bit too close to the PA and my ears have hurt the next day. That can't be good.

I'm doing it this summer, through hotbox events. Sounds pretty good, I asked on here and the consensus was that its ace and theres a good atmosphere between all the volunteers. I've got the offer of working Latitude, Big Chill, and Reading. I think I'll pick 2 out of the three at most, Big Chill's lineup is out on Wednesday so I'll see then. I'm liking Reading's lineup - Libertines, Maccabees, Cypress Hill, Arcade Fire. Friday looks pure shit though, aside from Mumford & Sons. Title: Re: Gigs Post by: Bogus Dave on Tuesday, March 30, 2010, 12:55:51 Aye, i looked at hotbox.

that was what held me back too - £200 seemed a lot. i pondered for a couple of weeks then paid it, deciding that it would actually help my cash flow in the long term - take a hit now and it gives me the feeling i'm poorer, which leads to less frivilous spending, and a nice £200 back in October. I just hope I can make £800 last until then. May have to get a summer job. Title: Re: Gigs Post by: ibelieveinmrreeves on Friday, April 9, 2010, 21:02:56 Been offered a ticket for Reading this year.

I'd like to second this. After seeing Neil Young there a couple of years ago it took me 2 1/2 hours to get out of the car park after all the stewards fucked off after the gig ended. Either that or they were in hiding because they were nowhere to be seen. Great concert and not a bad venue and getting in was pretty east. But afterwards - bad news. Title: Re: Gigs Post by: oxford_fan on Saturday, April 10, 2010, 00:33:42 cheers for the warning. its only one whole day of music this year (saturday), with the option of camping, which i think may be a different arrangement from other years? and perhaps might help to ease the congestion however bad it is i don't think it'll top trying to get out of glastonbury. forgot where i'd parked my car, so an attempted early exit at 1am turned into a 6 hour search through fields and fields full of vehicles. felt amazing when i finally found it, though i had by then lost my friend so had to drive around looking for her.

Not sure about the acoustics, and positively less sure about Bon Jovi, but the O2 is a pretty good venue. Like what they've done to the O2. A much better use than the original purpose.

I actually quite like Mumford and sons. However I now have a problem with them as I've noticed that Marcus Mumford looks incredibly like David Cameron. And even if he doesnt look like David Cameron its in my head that he does. I now can't look at him without wanting to punch him in his big shiny forehead.

Only about 10 mins so it seems to have improved in that respect. Buying beer was a bit of a joke though, a 40 minute queue from midday to midnight. I don't think Hop Farm has a high returner rate, seems to be consistently poorly organised and a rip off too, which is a bit rich for a festival which claims to put punters first. I enjoyed it, but would be unlikely to attend again.

I had the shittest quietest bar, it was on the way between stages next to the bungee and dodgems (which was a joy as you can imagine).

Was the whole thing undersubscribed ? Although for an event of that size it always is going to look like loads of people yet somehow it seemed half empty ? Used the two bars either side of the main stage and the one by the prog rock stage, sadly didn't go into yours, although you may be relieved about that anyway !

Yeah I think the whole thing sold badly, but from what I understand they will still be doing it next year. Its based on a festy they do in the states which is successful. I think they realise that most festivals take 3 years to turn a profit so will keep going. The point about using the bars by the stage was right on the money. They didnt seem to realise that the type of people going are not going for a festival experience wandering around doing other things, the punters going were always going to just want to watch the music so my bar was unneccesary. Lost me about £100 in wages but whatever, I was happy to get home.

Yep I agree they were superb.

Line up last year was pretty very decent, seems a bit of let down so far for 2011. The script, plan b and the lead singer from toploader on the main stage on the sunday. Wooooo

I'm going to this, it's the lead singer from Starsailor though i believe, not Toploader (i bloody hope it's not), and Jeff Beck is on as well on Sunday. Title: Re: Gigs Post by: Bogus Dave on Friday, December 10, 2010, 01:09:17 Yeah, apparently so. Still, not that enthsed tbh, line-up so far isn;t half as good as this years In other news i've jus got back from seeing johnny flynn in bristol. Venue was a bit odd, seeing as it was surrounded by adult shops and 'massage parlours', but the music was brilliant. I'm sure i've said it before, but johnny flynn is the greatest wordsmith musician in the country. The fact the great unwashed of the country would rather fawnicate over two bit chavs covering two bit pop songs makes me sick. This country is culturally redundant, what do we do when we run out of songs to cover.

That's quite funny as this morning I was thinking that exact thing regarding Simon Cowell and today's music. Think back to the greats of the 60s, 70s,80s and 90s. You could easily list 100 (probably more like 1000) bands/artists that have actually made music great. You remember where you were when you heard certain songs etc Then take 2000 onwards and the X Factor revulsion. Absolute mindless pap that will long go into the annals of the musical dustbin. Its a sad state of affairs that a lot of people I know are having X Factor parties to watch the final of this ridiculous programme.

Frank Turner was in Oxford this week: a Billy Bragg for younger people, perhaps. Fair play for pulling a 1500 crowd on a freezing school night anyhows, and mightily impressed by the Regal as a venue.

The Joy Formidable are a great live act. They use some backing tape but make a huge sound. I reckon they will give the manics a run for their money.

How did you find it? Weather was a downer yesterday, but we got quite lucky with the rest of the weekend. Foo fighters were very very good. Was underwhelmed by Kings of Leon - their new stuff really is dire. Saw the vaccines as well, which was a properly good atmosphere. Thought the line-up was a bit poor on the whole, but still had a very good (and expensive) weekend :) Title: Re: Gigs Post by: leefer on Monday, June 13, 2011, 22:19:16 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lr-OgG1A74c Loved this when released in 86,great song from my younger days,not a great video but a brilliant early house record....Jack My Body was another hit and still got that on vinyl.

Got back last night, so glad i took today off work to catch up on things. Yeah, the weather Sunday was dire. We stuck it outside until the evening when we saw Cast, PIL and the Manics in the Big Top, wasn't impressed with PIL. Agree with KOL, a lot of people said the same around us. We went off and saw Joan Jett and the Blackhearts in the Big Top instead, she is one good looking women and they were very good. Saturday saw the Vaccines and the Cult in the Big Top, Saturday evening was the best with Pulp and then the Foo Fighters. Overall, a good and like you expensive weekend, luckily i get paid tomorrow.

Take yer wellies (or maybe go barefoot) if there is any more rain as it was already churning up when we went on Wednesday to see Kings of Leon, who were very good indeed - as were Paul Weller and White Lies.

Bob mould DJed and played a song, roger taylor also guested and during the encore Alice cooper came on and did a couple of numbers. Fantastic. Biffy were also excellent as ever. Without wishing to be too much of a tosser(well too late for that really) I spent a lot of the day backstage where the promoters had built an old english pub for the Foos and guests. Stunning. Double decker bus in the back as well. And stone baked pizza oven where your kids could make pizzas for you! I haven't had as much fun backstage at a gig for years. Couple of photos here.

Incidentally, have paid 20 quid for shower vouchers, are the showers likely to be any cop or will dirty bastards have shit in them and only cold water will be available? Not been to a festival in ages.

Only just seen this. Who the fuck showers at a festival, you bender Title: Re: Gigs Post by: ibelieveinmrreeves on Thursday, July 14, 2011, 11:50:49 Saw Primus at Brixton Academy last night.

Seth Lakeman headlined and was excellent. Show of Hands were also class as was Kathryn Roberts. A very surreal moment was supplied by Ade Edmonson and the Bad Shepherds who provided an interesrting version of Making plans for Nigel. I went 2 years ago and a guy called Jim Moray played XTC All The Pretty Girls. A little bit of Swindon in sunny Hatfield. A good day out for all folkies.

Punk played on mandolin folk style wasn't my cup of tea. It has a novelty value hearing Anarchy in the UK but its very hit and miss. Some tracks work and some don't. They didn't play it yesterday but their version of Down In the Tube Station at Midnight is very good.

Why'd you go off Skream? I dare you to go and see the Skream & Benga set at Bestival, they played an Annie Mac night at Brixton a few months ago and it was one of the best sets I've ever seen and heard. Insane ability to make 5,000+ people go mental, and he is the driving force.

Good stuff! I expect a town fan to be in that state. To be fair in that massive tent there was one bar which was about 15 foot long on the far side of the tent. No surprise a lot of people in an advanced state of refreshment didnt notice it. Title: Re: Gigs Post by: Miles Mayhem on Thursday, August 11, 2011, 20:46:25 i would only go if its a double dare :D I saw skream and benga a few weeks ago and meh.

If there are any Ska/Reggae fans out there in Swindon that want a good nights entertainment then 2 old mates of mine are gigging in The Messenger Pub in Covingham Tonight, they are a ska based duo from Winchester that do many many great covers of Ska and Reggae songs. Both of them are members of Bad Manners and great guitarists and singers, go have a good nights entertainment for free. Title: Re: Gigs Post by: Miles Mayhem on Friday, October 21, 2011, 11:49:50 off too see, DJ Yoda VJ set, Krafty Kuts, Askillz and Plump Djs later tonight.

Title: Re: Gigs Post by: Peter Venkman on Monday, October 24, 2011, 15:11:17 Specials in Plymouth yesterday were totally amazing, one of the best sounding gigs I have ever been to.

Glad to hear it. I'm off in an hour or so to Cheltenham Racecourse to see them. Title: Re: Gigs Post by: oxford_fan on Tuesday, October 25, 2011, 01:36:02 Maccabees at Oxford Town Hall - brilliant. Had a chat with the lead singer beforehand and found the guitarist in the Jamaican bar after. Title: Re: Gigs Post by: chalkies_shorts on Tuesday, October 25, 2011, 23:20:00 The Specials was interesting. It was like a "This is England" convention. Nice to see a few red Fred Perry's in attendance and a few STFC 70s nutjobs there - all now very respectable people, I'm sure. I'm now probably going to be a bit of a heretic but when the Specials are good, they're very good - Monkey Man and Do Nothing but theres' a fair amount of "padding". A good evening and a good venue but there were lulls. Title: Re: Gigs Post by: Nemo on Tuesday, October 25, 2011, 23:25:35 Stephen Merchant in Bristol last night was excellent, if I can include comedy gigs. Support was pretty decent too, Daniel Schloss I believe his name was. Title: Re: Gigs Post by: cheltred69 on Wednesday, October 26, 2011, 22:36:00 Off to see Wilco tomorrow night in Bristol. Title: Re: Gigs Post by: chalkies_shorts on Wednesday, October 26, 2011, 23:39:49 For any old folkies out there i saw Show of Hands tonight at Marlborough. Bloody excellent musicians. Weird venue - Theatre on the Hill which is part of St Johns School. Expected a school hall, what I got was a mini Wyvern holding 400-500 - fantastic sound and venue. Title: Re: Gigs Post by: ibelieveinmrreeves on Sunday, November 6, 2011, 11:19:51 Throwing Muses on wednesday were awesome, and Kristin Hersh replied to a tweet of mine on saturday.

Going to see ben marwood on friday, and then try and catch local favourite gaz brookfield and dry the river next week.

Lemmy of course went to a strip club instead. Title: Re: Gigs Post by: Devizes_Red on Wednesday, November 9, 2011, 12:05:54 Saw the Arctic Monkeys in Birmingham last Friday and was bloody impressed with them, much more so than when I saw them in Dusseldorf last year.

Title: Re: Gigs Post by: Bob's Orange on Monday, November 14, 2011, 14:22:43 Saw 'My Morning Jacket' on Friday night. They put on a really good show. Support band 'The Head and the Heart' were decent also. (Kind of like a fleet foxes vibe) Death Cab for Cutie were a little disappointing on Saturday night. Elbow on Wednesday and then maybe Stephen Malkmus and the Jicks on Thursday if I can be arsed.

There are usually a lot of French people at these gigs so will probably be plenty of arses about!! Joking aside, more people than in the UK at gigs in Luxembourg chat away during quiet songs which is one of my bugbears, hopefully that doesn't happen this evening!

Damn right. As much as I enjoyed Stephen Merchant (and I did), Dave Gorman was much funnier. It does mean I have seen two commedians doing statistics based humour in two weeks, which appeals to the geek in me. Go stats!

Title: Re: Gigs Post by: oxford_fan on Tuesday, November 29, 2011, 00:20:25 I saw him compere a night in London a few years ago and he was brilliant. Very sharp with the ad lib stuff. Then that crap tv show came out, and I saw him at Big Chill last summer and it was pretty shite. He repeats himself a lot, I think I've heard him say the one where he finds an Aussie in the crowd and says "You call us poms don't you? Yeah we call you racists" about 4 times.

Saw him in Edinburgh earlier this year. Whilst very funny in places I felt it dragged a little and some of his stuff was pretty terrible. In 30 minutes I reckon he could have a great show.

After a couple of "Man Utd", "Oxford", and "Chelsea" responses, a woman down the front was brave enough to shout "Swindon" - widely booed of course! After asking if he was needed any more, he came out with the joke, "The match I'd like to see, is Alex Ferguson's Manchester United against South Korea's Arsenal." Which sums the evening up pretty much, though it was the second time I had seen it and pretty much the same material.

Exactly the same at the MECA the other night with some guy (clearly mentally unstable) shouting Oxford with a similar response. Thought Milton was good but with his type of humour a 40 minute set was enough before potentially getting boring.

From what I've been told, the owner doesn't like paying out for workman where he can help it and looks to do most things himself, which in turn means it either doesn't get done or takes an age to do.

Didn't think it was too bad, fine for a seated concert but not sure regarding standing one. Doesn't have a sloping floor ala Brixton/Shepherds Bush O2's therefore if you get a giraffe standing in front of you then you won't see much. Also agree not much been on yet to get excited about.

Do they do day tickets. I mean they used to, have you heard if they will. I think they were on sale later than weekend tickets. Anyway James are headlining on the Saturday, so assuming I sill have a job by the time they go on sale I'm there!

A day ticket for just the Saturday will be £53 - I have application forms to trade there, but am also looking at Larmer Tree and one called Hullaballoo.

Wychwood looks as though it might be worth a day trip, but I'd like to find something with some bigger bands for a weekend, likewise heard good things about 2000 trees but again want to see some bigger bands. I've checked out the Hullaballoo and see its not much more than 1 mile walk from home. Might check out what's going on there for a day trip. I'll do a more in-depth search around some time. Title: Re: Gigs Post by: wiggy on Monday, January 23, 2012, 23:39:16 My worry about the Hullaballoo one is that it sounds a bit like the Collaboration Fest on last year.

What I have got into lately are people like Jamie XX, Julio Bashmore, Joy Orbison, Ramadanman/Pearson Sound, Mele, Redlight, TEED, Rustie, Hudson Mohawke, who are making some very exciting dance music. Title: Re: Gigs Post by: Miles Mayhem on Sunday, February 5, 2012, 17:34:48 i do agree with the punch, if there is no real heavy bassline im not that interested. There is no one from your list i dislike. Redlight is one of my favourite DJ's at the moment, his sets are jump up dup/DnB which at a big club are great. I would add Netsky, koan sound, brookes bros, Krafty Kuts, Bassline Smith, kamo and crooked and Jaguar skills all for their live sets. Title: Re: Gigs Post by: oxford_fan on Sunday, February 5, 2012, 20:16:32 Yep Redlight is one of my faves, Source 16 and Progress are crazy. Would like to see him do his Roller Express show with Toddla T, at a big club like fabric. I need to give Koan Sound a listen, a couple of people have recommended. I'm not so keen on the Hospital artists any more, after going to a Hospitality night at Brixton before Christmas which was hands down the worst night I've ever been too - the music they played sounded like happy hardcore and we struggled to find any drum and bass. Left after two hours. Not that impressed with the stuff from High Contrast's new album that I've heard either, and I used to love his music. Netsky's album is a goodun though. Title: Re: Gigs Post by: oxford_fan on Monday, February 6, 2012, 18:41:20 Koan Sound is horrendous.

You going to make any festivals this year Title: Re: Gigs Post by: oxford_fan on Monday, February 6, 2012, 21:36:57 I rate Skream. He's put out a bit of trash and I'm not into his mindless stuff but Midnight Request Line, his first album, and Burnin' Up are brilliant, and Out The Box was decent too. Genuinely decent bloke too, he was booked for a student night in Norwich when he was still unknown, and came to my mates house party after. I'm driving across America for 2 months from July 26th, then heading to Peru, so won't be able to do any festivals over here. Hoping to see some decent music and British DJs whilst we're over there though. You going to any festivals? Glade looks decent actually, and I think I can make that one. Booked up for Field Day in Victoria Park too, Rustie, SBTRKT, Zomby, Bashmore, and Hudson Mohawke are all playing.

Saw them supporting Muse a couple of years ago and they were very good except they had a strobe light pointing at the audience all the time which grated a bit. Musically very good.

The thing about gigs in Luxembourg, is that the venue is actually very good and its so easy to get tickets. Elbow for example played last year and it wasn't sold out (about a 500-800 capacity at a guess). This also has its bad points as the crowd over here is full of French speaking mannequins. That said, its dead easy to get near the front, get to the bar and adds to the intimate effect. Band of Skulls was the last one I went to and there must have been around 250 people there. Sorry, its a week on Monday, so you'll have to wait a bit for the review!! Title: Re: Gigs Post by: LucienSanchez on Friday, March 2, 2012, 12:34:53 Sounds good to me... although i guess the atmosphere in the crowd must be strange/lacking?

I wholeheartedly agree with this. Line-up looks shit this year. TITP looks much better! Title: Re: Gigs Post by: Bob's Orange on Friday, March 2, 2012, 12:43:15 Quote from: LucienSanchez on Friday, March 2, 2012, 12:34:53 Sounds good to me... although i guess the atmosphere in the crowd must be strange/lacking?

Yes, the atmosphere is generally pants so you have to take the rough with the smooth. Also as the place is packed with French speaking people who often have nothing better to do than chat the whole fucking time, it can be quite annoying when a 'quieter' band is playing. I got into an altercation at the Elbow gig as the bloody family (more rude French, qu'elle surprise) next to me were looking at photos on their phones and having a good laugh during a quiet song so I threw my empty beer cup (50 cents down the drain) at one of them and told them to shut the fuck up as I had paid to listen to the music, not half wits looking at photos on a phone. Unfortunately the guy was much bigger than me and I was able to sneak away at the end without being lamped!! Title: Re: Gigs Post by: Ginginho on Friday, March 9, 2012, 10:47:14 The Cornbury Festival line up is pretty good this year. http://www.cornburyfestival.com/ Shame i'm on a stag do in Belgium that weekend otherwise i'd have gone on the Saturday to see Newton Faulkner alone.

Did you know he can play the piano? Title: Re: Gigs Post by: Ginginho on Friday, March 9, 2012, 11:37:53 Yeah, I agree, I can't stand Jools Holland either, I never watch that Hootenanny bollocks.

Not really my cup of tea but taking my Dad. Sadly the last gig I imagine I will be able to take him to as he has terminal brain cancer and his life expectancy is not too good. He did make my laugh when I told him I will have to take him in his wheelchair, he said can we take that in the moshpit, I tell him probably not, so he says ah its Ok take down the front and the pressure of the crowd will hold me up :), good man living it up till the end Title: Re: Gigs Post by: LucienSanchez on Friday, March 9, 2012, 13:28:55 Quote from: gk_nash on Friday, March 9, 2012, 11:35:04 Id give sunday a miss or go home early.

Dave, you seen The Horrors before? They are playing in Brixton in a couple of weeks. Title: Re: Gigs Post by: Bogus Dave on Tuesday, May 8, 2012, 15:04:07 Nah, have heard good things. Had an album last year which was good, though I'm not a massive fan of their earlier stuff Title: Re: Gigs Post by: Bob's Orange on Tuesday, May 8, 2012, 21:57:24 Dry the River was great tonight. As it hardly grabbed the Luxembourg public's imagination they sold 62 tickets and it was moved to a pub. Must have been 80 people in the back of a bar. So good to see these bands so close. The singer and guitarist were choked with cold but didn't dampen the performance. Some of the 'louder' stuff was brilliant.

It is one of the companies I work for gigs and if I can change a flight without having my testicles removed by 'er indoors then I will be working it. To be honest Ive got 2 kids and Im not having any more so she might as well have them. So ill let you know what happens with that. It'd be really annoying if biffy were playing so close to my area and I wasn't working it. Title: Re: Gigs Post by: Samdy Gray on Thursday, May 10, 2012, 15:49:41 Good luck. Title: Re: Gigs Post by: Iffy's Onion Bhaji on Thursday, May 10, 2012, 18:00:45 Ok so how do you get tickets for this?

Title: Re: Gigs Post by: Saxondale on Thursday, May 10, 2012, 18:35:16 Not sure how the presale works, but it will be a limited number of tickets.

Agreed. Why the oasis obviously felt the need to take tickets off ticketmaster and sell them all via their tinpot site and one woman on the phone I will never know. Commission I guess.

Hah it was alright, everyone was only there waiting for that one song though.. I wouldn't know about it going down hill but according to my mates from other uni's ours is still one of the best.. Title: Re: Gigs Post by: Costanza on Monday, May 14, 2012, 16:47:58 The problem was the main room. They've moved the screen and some seating and made it feel like a school hall.

They played the Plymouth Uni Summer Ball last time around along with Tim Westwood. Nowadays you get Roots Manuva. Obviously they've upped the budget.

Was thoroughly impressed with the emirates, however the staff were like zombies on day release, horrific and £4.30 for a pint of carlsberg!

Can't make it but saw them last week in Woking and last night in Huddersfield and they were the dogs bollocks..I do some work on their website etc and I know Bruce, Russell and Mark so get to see them pretty often and if you are a Jam fan or just like good live music I can highly recommend them....No flashy effects etc just fucking good tunes well played, the set includes all four number one singles plus other Jam classics most people over 35 will recognise. If you go on to their Facebook page there are some photos from the soundcheck etc I uploaded.. Enjoy Title: Re: Gigs Post by: Abrahammer on Saturday, June 30, 2012, 18:57:06 Quote from: Bob's Orange on Friday, June 29, 2012, 08:45:38 Guess the crowd's singing will drown out Ian Brown's god awful singing, which will be a good thing! Enjoy, all those that are going, bit jealous!!

Watched a few of the songs from the last night on YouTube and his voice sounds fucking dreadfull, Waterfall being a prime example. Still looked like a quality gig I'd have loved to have been at but Brown's vocals are shocking Title: Re: Gigs Post by: THE FLASH on Sunday, July 1, 2012, 12:38:21 Sorry I missed your post crispy. Well as Guy 66 said....they were the dogs bollocks. Old town bowl was a quirky venue and avoided most of the showers. Music was very good indeed.....brought back some goo memories......not as many people as I expected but I reckon a few didn't bother cos of the rain....a bug loss for them. Title: Re: Gigs Post by: jutty274 on Sunday, July 1, 2012, 13:39:05 It was a great night last night watching From The Jamm in the rain & mud at the old town bowl, the music was that good that even watching it with the Flash was still enjoyable, the only downside was that i have had to throw away the trainers i wore last night as they were caked in mud. Title: Re: Gigs Post by: guy66 on Sunday, July 1, 2012, 14:11:55 Quote from: THE FLASH on Sunday, July 1, 2012, 12:38:21 Sorry I missed your post crispy.

Flash, glad you had a good time, just gutted I couldn't get there..the sound engineer put a picture on Facebook from the sounddesk during set up and it was pissing it down which is a shame. I will try to get down to Gloucester when they play the Town Hall on November 1st. Title: Re: Gigs Post by: yeo on Sunday, July 1, 2012, 16:13:52 The Roses were great,gave me tingles.

Brilliant night. No idea if Brown's vocals were any good, couldn't hear him over the crowd singing. Title: Re: Gigs Post by: Paolo69 on Monday, July 2, 2012, 02:50:41 To be fair the majority of Brown's vocals were decent. Certainly sounded like it from where I was. Totally ballache getting back but only to be expected really given the fact it was in a Venue with a residential traffic network. All part of the fun really! Gig was fucking awesome. Great great atmosphere. Waited most of my adult life to see them and was not disappointed. Title: Re: Gigs Post by: LucienSanchez on Monday, July 2, 2012, 07:53:12 What they said... was an amazing night. I've seen Ian Brown do some Roses tracks before, but seeing the full lineup (especially Squire and Reni who were just fantastic) was virtually a dream come true for me. Title: Re: Gigs Post by: Dazzza on Monday, July 2, 2012, 21:45:31 Saturday was magic. Cracking crowd, really made the day. Fucking horrendous getting out back into Manchester centre afterwards.

Los de Abajo aint bad, they supported us a couple of years back, good fun. I should add you may know the songs but not sung in Spanish! :D Title: Re: Gigs Post by: Costanza on Saturday, July 7, 2012, 21:25:04 Went to Craig Charles' Funk & Soul Club at The Lanes (Bristol) last night.

Title: Re: Gigs Post by: wiggy on Tuesday, July 17, 2012, 22:39:07 If anyone is at a loose end in Devizes on Saturday night, there will be a rock/metal night at Devizes Football Club.

Chris Ramsey (MC), Nick Helm, Alun Cochrane and Dylan Moran are tonight's comedians. Title: Re: Gigs Post by: Abrahammer on Friday, July 20, 2012, 15:49:59 I hope Cochrane is funnier on stage than he his is on the Frank Skinner show, should be hard though. Title: Re: Gigs Post by: Bob's Orange on Friday, July 20, 2012, 15:54:00 Quote from: Abrahammer on Friday, July 20, 2012, 15:49:59 I hope Cochrane is funnier on stage than he his is on the Frank Skinner show, should be hard though.

I did a little bit of youtubing and he was probably the least amusing out of all of them. Will go with an open mind though. Title: Re: Gigs Post by: Bob's Orange on Monday, July 23, 2012, 15:33:07 The comedy festival was quite good. Each comedian got about 40 ish minutes on stage I think. We missed the first bit of Alun Cochrane, but from what I saw he was quite good, without being uproariously amusing. Tim Key was next and did a lot of stupid (but very funny) poems. I would describe him as a marmite comic as there were people around me who clearly found him as funny as a kick in the nuts, but he had me in stitches at times. Dylan Moran was on at the perfect time and as he said so himself, when people had had a few drinks. I can't actually remember a lot of the material, but he amused me. Probably Key would have been my 'cup of tea' but it was good to see different variety of standup. Title: Re: Gigs Post by: Peter Venkman on Monday, July 23, 2012, 16:13:18 Looking forward to the Edinburgh Comedy Festival in August, going up for a week again and going to take in loads of comedians, our 5th year in a row now. Already booked for Tim Vine, Phill Jupitus, Rhod Gilbert, Wil Hodgkins, Simon Munnery, Rob Deering, Scottish Falsetto Sock Puppet Theatre, Joanne Neary, John Robins, and several free ones too...can't wait.

We never used to do many shows but now we make a week of festival and have about 3 or 4 a day and several of the bigger names do shows at much reduced prices, about £10-15 a show. Good value. Title: Re: Gigs Post by: Costanza on Monday, July 23, 2012, 19:41:33 Lots of good acts on this year. I had the chance to perform at the Free Fringe a couple of years ago and couldn't get the time off work. Should have just gone, a big regret of mine.

Thats a shame, if you do manage to get there in the future then let me know and we will come along, I know its an expensive thing to put on though, especially if you put on a show yourself for the whole month.

He has always been an Arsehole!! She loved herself that singer..Georgie...no dancers...always moving her dress about and stuff. He took himself very seriously....1000 yard stares at the audience and all that. He said "Heres a song i did at LiveAid...i was supposed to do six but he only let me do one.". I liked the female drummer...very nice.

As ever with Eels a different set up every tour. Very much set up like a 60 s style band only using a bit of the stage (but all in blue Adidas tracksuits). They came on earlier than expected and so missed the first songs. Lots from latest album and no piano so a lot more upbeat. Song of the night was what E called a "mash up" of My Beloved Monster and Mr. E s Beautiful Blues.

Glad to see another travelling band fan in a public place. Saw them last week in Bristol, seen them a couple of other places down the years too. Bloody superb band with great songs. Anyone who hasnt come across them yet needs to have a listen to their second album "Screaming is Something". Absolutely blinding record. Sounds even better on a nice summer s day. Their new one isnt quite as strong but still pretty good. Really hope they get a little bit of success, they bloody deserve it for being so fecking good, it sounds like they re pretty hard up at the moment.

Cracking weekend as ever with some incredible live performances. Slipknot absolutely owned the weekend, Corey Taylor had 90,000 in the palm of his hand and it was pure carnage, yet also quite emotional. He has to be the greatest frontman of his generation! Still don t get the fuss over Iron Maiden though. Or Motorhead for that matter. Maybe I m just too young! Oh and a special mention for Rammstein as well who put on the most insane show I ve ever seen. Everything on stage was, at one point, on fire and their singer essentially sodomised their keyboard player on stage. Nuts. Germans are weird.

Don t. Ever. Unless you re dragging yourself backwards into the 70 s or 80 s. Modern music is, on the whole, fucking horrendous. Arctic Monkeys & Jake Bugg are pretty much the only good things about at the moment, as far as Main Stream goes. And I m seeing them both within 2 or 3 days of eachother at the end of October. Lovely stuff. Title: Re: Gigs Post by: sonicyouth on Friday, July 5, 2013, 12:06:21 I d like to go to gigs but living in the sticks means I can t get home after 11pm and tickets are expensive as fuck anyway.

One is for my daughter who is fifteen and I don t know what to do with the other one. Do I let her go with one of her mate or do I go with her and risk the embarrassment of being the oldest bloke there among a load of trendies, (I m 48). I think she d probably prefer to go with her mate but would be too polite to say so. Thing is, I like his music and think he s gonna be massive one day. Thoughts please.

Same gig, had a similar question...but went with ticket for me, and ticket for mate solution (and obviously ticket for daughter, if that sounded a little suspect). Everyone s a winner.

Go and see him. I m older than you and was most impressed when I saw hime last year and he is always on Radio6 so must have a bit of Kudos.

Title: Re: Gigs Post by: Nemo on Thursday, October 31, 2013, 01:08:41 Saw Biffy on Monday night in a tiny (relative to their usual) venue in Guildford on a corporate sell out gig. Great fun, as it was basically only promoted through social media it was full of young people that actually liked them and knew all the words to everything. The most fun I ve had at a gig in ages. Title: Re: Gigs Post by: Munichred on Sunday, November 3, 2013, 22:45:05 Saw Snarky Puppy last night. A brilliant performance of jazz-funk.

Ho-leee shit. What a gig. Fucking Bristol though... That was one of the worst crowds I ve ever been in- I ve gone to wakes with more atmosphere. It was filled with drunk old blokes disinterested in the actual music and just trying to mosh (appallingly I might add), parents and their teenage kids (so neither wanting to let their hair down too much), and nearly the whole front two/three rows were filled with people who were apparently stood in solemn meditation instead of being out to enjoy themselves. British Sea Power were a bit eh , but I ve seen them before so used my time to wisely stock up with drinks at the bar. :pint: Watch out for the bear. Editors... Wow. They re one of my favourite bands, and having never been able to see them (I ve been out of country/poor/ill etc.) tonight was a near-religious experience for me. Helped that I found myself front row. They really are a fantastic band live, Tom Smith is just enthralling as a frontman. Soon as I got home I checked to see if the London gig was sold out yet. It is :( Enjoy the gig Bob s Orange, I fooking wish I could go again this tour... Title: Re: Gigs Post by: Bob's Orange on Tuesday, November 12, 2013, 11:27:44 Thanks for the review Honky. I saw editors in Lux before they went all synthy, and they were bloody good then. Do they play much of the older stuff?

So saw Editors last night at Brixton. I think Honky s summation was pretty accurate. I actually thought British Sea Power were very poor, not helped by the fact their 2 singers are tone deaf. The bear probably saved them to be honest. Editors were excellent, a good mix of new and old songs. Tom Smith really does give his all and he s an excellent front man. Great lights and sound at Brixton, going back there on Tuesday for Jimmy Eat World.

Is this a decent venue then? Not been but got tickets to see Editors there in March. How does it compare to Brixton which I love? Title: Re: Gigs Post by: Saxondale on Thursday, December 12, 2013, 14:50:18 Its got great character. Lovely building with good sightlines all around. Personally I prefer it to Brixton but that may be just the surrounding areas. Capacity is 3000 compared to Brixtons 5000. Its a bit more arty than Brixton and you can get some decent food there as well.

Agree with this mostly and (for a deaf old git) the acoustics seem superb, maybe because of the skill of the sound engineers :) ? have to say Brixton is a top venue too though. Title: Re: Gigs Post by: Saxondale on Friday, December 13, 2013, 00:28:14 Good sound system in there (d&b J series if you are really dull like me).

Title: Re: Gigs Post by: Saxondale on Wednesday, December 18, 2013, 10:57:23 The venue could be a fuck of a lot better. They had a 2 stage regeneration plan to it. Stage 1, the big gold bit at the front, got done and then they ran out if money. The backstage and production facilities are shit. Probably still the same since you went there in the early 80s. Having said that it s a really interesting building with a warren of cellars and tunnels which hold a wealth of history in both the broadcast and slaving trades.

I saw them in Luxembourg in a small venue (around 800 capacity at a guess) and whilst they were good, the amount of rude French people chatting during the gig ruined it somewhat (2 women were showing each other baby photos and cooing very loudly much to my annoyance) so I am looking forward to seeing them in a much bigger venue (hopefully a bit more respect) Title: Re: Gigs Post by: Anteater on Tuesday, April 15, 2014, 10:22:07 Quo e from Bedford Red on Sa urday Apr 12 2014 13 30 13 Saw he Man cs a Br x on as n gh one of he r bes g gs for me Good o hear "Arch ves of Pa n" p ayed hey ve been p ay ng a few off The Ho y B b e h s our

I saw that Paloma Faith and Jack Johnson are also playing. None of these artists are really up my street, however geographically Clapham Common is and with Mr Wonder being a bit of a legend I really had to check it out. I m not too sure what to expect really. Saturday is a little more rocky. Aerosmith are headlining and I would love to see Joe Bonamassa again, unfortunately have a prior engagement.

aah sorry mate, all gone im afraid Title: Re: Gigs Post by: Nemo on Sunday, July 6, 2014, 20:52:44 Went to Monty Python in the week. Bit odd seeing essentially a greatest hits comedy gig, but so much goodwill and a few fun surprise moments- the Hawking/Cox cameo is something to enjoy. Thought it could have done with a few more in-jokes at themselves, they did have one dig at Palin s travel programmes but scope for plenty more about Cleese s wives, Gilliam s worthybut-financially-disastrous films and whatever it is that Terry Jones does these days, but there you go. Overall it had a bit of a feel of a live wake attended by the deceased, but I mean that in a positive way if possible. I m glad I went. It wasn t innovative, new, daring, or anything that the Pythons were in their pomp. But it was never going to be and it felt like what it was, a chance to say goodbye to the greatest comedy performers this country has ever produced. And it probably paid off a few of Cleese s ex wives. Title: Re: Gigs Post by: janaage on Saturday, July 12, 2014, 11:35:41 Went to see Pearl Jam last night at Milton Keynes Bowl.

There s not many times I ve been to gigs and been in awe but Richard Thompson is a genius. His guitar work is incredible. Seth is also excellent to see live. Beth was a bit of a let down, not bad but hoped for better. All for £35 - bargain.

Didn t see the first band, second band were called Candy Hearts, they were OK at best... 3rd up were State Champs, they were really really good!

Doesn t it hold like 20k? I had no idea they d be a big enough band to hold a gig of that size... having said that, I only heard of them very recently. What kind of music are they? Is it a sell out?

Title: Re: Gigs Post by: Saxondale on Tuesday, December 16, 2014, 17:26:39 Im up the road at the colston hall with the rather more sedate Chris Rea. I cant imagine Chris Rea paddling over the audiences heads in a rubber dinghy like Parkway Drive did on the never say die tour I did with them a few years ago.

Saw the cure on Sunday night at Hammersmith apollo and they were fantastic. It was amazing. 3 hours + and they played in amongst it all the entirety of The Top album some of which they hadn t played since 1984. If a gig is ever worth £50 this was 40 songs on the night. http://www.setlist.fm/setlist/the-cure/2014/eventim-apollo-london-england-63cd0e8f.html I wish I could have gone for the other 2 nights as well.

Title: Re: Gigs Post by: Saxondale on Monday, January 12, 2015, 23:44:12 On another issue, the company have just released details of a couple of nice tours for anyone over the age of 40.

Both doing the motorpoint in Cardiff and Bournemouth. Moz on sale on Friday, Prodge Wednesday.

Standard, hes been put under an embargo at Butlins for similar things, good mate of mine but when he gets fucked he gets royally fucked. Half the band quit after that gig in the Cotswolds, but then thats fairly standard too. Title: Re: Gigs Post by: Combe Down on Thursday, July 30, 2015, 16:18:13 Fell into the drums. Forgot what song he was singing. Spouting gibberish on stage. Total disrespect for the punters during the gig. Shame coz he was mixing with everyone before hand. That was probably his downfall. Too much Cotswold air. Title: Re: Gigs Post by: Peter Venkman on Thursday, July 30, 2015, 16:20:25 Quo e from Combe Down on Thursday Ju y 30 2015 16 18 13 Fe

Title: Re: Gigs Post by: Mrs Brown on Thursday, July 30, 2015, 20:13:10 Hello all I can thoroughly recommend The Bowie Experience who are playing at The Vic on Saturday 8th August. As well as being a great band with the excellent Laurence as Bowie, Laurence s attention to detail when it comes to costumes is perfect. A superb night all round! Title: Re: Gigs Post by: suttonred on Wednesday, August 5, 2015, 22:17:02 Seen them twice in Sutton, uncannily look and sound alike, def worth a look.

Title: Re: Gigs Post by: Mrs Brown on Friday, March 4, 2016, 04:00:23 I know I ve recommended them before but The Bowie Experience are playing at The Vic tonight - a fantastic tribute to the recently departed David Bowie.

Very good. Played about 4 songs from the new album. The rest were the usual crowd pleasers from back catalogue.

I saw thw Fall a couple of years ago, I thought they could be the worst act I have ever seen live, Mark Smith seemed like a lost child on stage and not bothered about anything, wasn t even livened up when Johnny Rotten made a guest appearance.

For me, having a front man that can t sing is the worst thing I can think of about a band. I went to see Ian Brown in Luxembourg and it was far and away the worst gig I ve ever been to.

No interest in Dylan, Waits or Macgowan, but now you mention it Neil Young was brilliant when I saw him a few years back. I didn t really notice his voice being Ian Brown bad by any stretch of the imagination, but I think that s probably because I was engrossed in his guitar work.

The Von Bondies supported by Kasabian at the Barfly with doors at 7am. It was weird seeing people walk in at 7am, look at the bar and not know what to do.

Yes, at a meat festival! They are still pretty good. I only really know their greatest hits mind, and even then I forgot they did Duchess - so that was a nice surprise! "Sex, drugs and brisket", they saw the funny side... Title: Re: Gigs Post by: Nomoreheroes on Thursday, September 22, 2016, 08:28:11 They are rereleasing remasters of their first 7 plus some other more obscure stuff. So, greatest hits set list likely.

Title: Re: Gigs Post by: Hitchinred on Thursday, September 22, 2016, 15:54:30 I go every March to see The Stranglers at the Cambridge Corn Exchange and 2017 will be no different. Always a good show and differs each year. No Jet Black recently due to health issues although he came on for a few songs during the 40th anniversary tour which meant two drum kits on stage.

Title: Re: Gigs Post by: Peter Venkman on Friday, September 30, 2016, 09:10:24 Well Stewart Lee was fantastic, in the top 5 stand ups I have ever seen and I have seen several hundred now. He did his work in progress for his upcoming tour, 2 sets of 50 mins and 40 mins respectively so an hour and half in total and he was superb as I am sure Saxondale will confirm :) Highly recomended for his tour which starts in November. Title: Re: Gigs Post by: Saxondale on Friday, September 30, 2016, 09:29:56 Ay, it was bloody great. I still find it amazing that the Chippenham comedy club exists and can bring in acts like this. Ive seen Lee a lot and love his stuff so it was fascinating to see him at such a small venue working up an actual show rather than working up material for his TV show. Even having seen a lot of the material Ill still go and see him when he tours the actual show as it feels like theres a lot more of the character Stewart Lee to go into it and tip it over into something amazing. Really great evening and lovely to catch up briefly with you Mr Venkman. Nice not to discuss STFC at all!

I "saw" Mogwai backing the Cure. I pretty much slept through their set. To be fair though the Cure played the worst set i ve seen them do also. might have been because it was outdoors.

Lee Perry was very good. A case of getting used to his vocal style to begin with, but a great character on stage. Not sure if his smokes on stage were nicotine based or more herbal in nature. The dub stuff was excellent plus reworkings of some Wailers classics. Seeing Lee Perry was a bucket list item for me. Not sure how long he can keep coming over here but great to see a genius in action. Title: Re: Gigs Post by: Tails on Thursday, October 13, 2016, 09:41:35 Saw Ross Noble in Wycombe last night.

Normally go to about 20 or so a year. Hearing is probably damaged by know but who cares. Jello is long gone. Major fall out and court case over royalties a few years ago. The DK s are not quite the same but the other three are originals so they know what they are doing. Paul McLoone is the vocalist for The Undertones (since reforming in 99). Quite a well known radio presenter in Ireland apparently. When a band reforms with original members but different vocalist then they have to be at least on a par with or add something extra, in which case it normally works. Title: Re: Gigs Post by: Saxondale on Friday, October 21, 2016, 13:00:10 Talking of the dead kennedys have you heard Cabbage? New band from Manc rather remind me of them.

Title: Re: Gigs Post by: Saxondale on Thursday, January 5, 2017, 12:19:29 I did that gig! Ill be honest I think Bristol lacks a lot from the point of view of a promoter.

They get away with it and keep busy due to the fact that Cardiff is the next big place and that is really bad.

I agree, FT&TSS are ok...but to support Blink 182 seems a little bizarre. I didn t know what all the fuss was about when I saw them at Ynot Festival in 2014. There was probably one or two songs that I "liked" but nothing else really moved me. I prefer Beans on Toast, if you ve seen him live. Kind of a Billy Bragg political type. Some don t like his lazy vocals but he is what he is, a raw,honest scoundrel. He s also just a normal guy in person as I had a pint with him at the bar about an hour before his gig.

Yes I saw the Fall a few years ago, I have to admit they were the worst band I have ever seen by a country mile....you may like them though. Mark E Smith spent half the gig with his back to the crowd and the sound was shockingly shit and tuneless. The only interesting point was Johnny Rotten was sat on the stage at the back and barely moved all gig.

Seeing them in Cardiff next month. Their recent shows that I ve seen have been very good and the current line up has been together for a few years now. If unsure, then best bet is to go on the piss beforehand as sometimes it s easier to appreciate them more after a few beers.

Title: Re: Gigs Post by: Reg Smeeton on Thursday, January 26, 2017, 12:05:42 I saw early period Fall, but not for years. Something that amuses my mates is that I can remember details about STFC games from years ago, but usually next to nothing about gigs, like where it was, how I got there and who with etc. So I know I saw them and that s it.

Tis yeah, good view of the stage from all around the room. There s a monthly (student) techno night held there where it fills up like a club - a pretty impressive sight to behold from the balcony. Plus, its being used for its proper historical purpose, housing intoxicated (on something or another) dancers with concealed faces, like a proper 18thc. assembly room should. Looking forward to seeing the Fall in light of the mixed reviews. Should be interesting. I m teetotal... So I suppose I ll have to find some other way to appreciate them than beer!

I ve seen them a few times over the years,unfortunately I was too young to have seen them in their Punk,Bingo Masters breakout era glory Mainly festivals,Reading,Glastonbury etc Best one was at the Hub in Bath early 90 s,for some reason Mark E Smith chose to stare intensely at me whilst singing for about 5 songs,till I got freaked out and moved! They re one of those bands that shouldn t work,but do somehow If you re into Trout Mask Replica era Beefheart, then I m sure you ll like them

Wow, where? Have to say, I ve seen them twice and they were moody and rude both times. The second one, they were charging £30/£35 for a ticket to some weird echoey hall in Kings Cross, then complained that the crowd was a "bunch of jimminy cricket motherfuckers". Perhaps re-evaluated your pricing if you want young, hip kids to come rather than a bunch of 30+ white people (their largest demographic of fans, in the UK at least). Sure they ll be great tonight. I have a ticket going for the XX at Brixton tonight, if anyone wants to buy it off me. Title: Re: Gigs Post by: sonicyouth on Friday, March 10, 2017, 17:51:25 Roundhouse so a decent venue at least.

It s only bassist JJ Burnel and Dave Greenfield on keys from the original lineup now.

Hugh Cornwell left in 1990. He and Burnel wrote all the songs. Cornwell was replaced by Paul Roberts on vocals and John Ellis (former member of The Vibrators) on guitar. John Ellis left after alll his songs were rejected for an album in 2000. He was replaced by Baz Warne (bald bloke who used to be in the Toy Dolls). Paul Roberts left in 2006 (much to the relief of many fans) and they reverted to a 4 piece with Warne & Burnel sharing vocals. Jet Black is now in his 70s and struggling with health. He was replaced for live gigs by his drum tech Ian Barnard but is still in the band and makes appearances every now and again. Cornwell is still going strong on his own (touring as a 3 piece band). He stopped playing Stranglers songs for 10-15 years, but has more recently incorporated them back into his setlist. He has produced a number of very different albums since leaving the Stranglers, while the Stranglers (especially in the last few years) have focussed on back catalogue and when they have produced albums, they have gone for the tried and trusted formula (imho). Cornwell has a new album written (and I think recorded) but its not known when it will be released. Title: Re: Gigs Post by: Reg Smeeton on Monday, March 27, 2017, 10:56:57 Jet Black was a neighbour of a bird I used to be with in the early 80 s. She lived in the Cotswolds....when I say neighbour, it was the next nearest house but plenty of distance in between. Used to amuse me how The Stranglers sought at the time to have the urban, street cred, working class image, but Jet was the epitome of a country set arriviste.

I know. Should have learnt from seeing them in Oxford a few years back. Awful sound, hoping to hide all their mistakes under noisy guitar thrash, couldn t understand a word they said between numbers. I liked Shelley s angsty electro-pop stuff after he left them too. But nothing s survived. Just pot-bellied amateur pub punk. Not sure I ve seen a band go that badly to seed. I m hurt. :cry: Title: Re: Gigs Post by: Wobbly Bob on Monday, March 27, 2017, 23:06:49

*see also Buzzcocks discussion for those another 15 years older. Good. Volume turned up, much more raw sound since last time I saw them. The new material stands up well. Atmospheric venue.

Kooky girl would be kicked out of the venue, bus drivers sage wisdom tends to go along the lines of, look Im not racist but... and if anyone wanted to get us all involved in a circle of trust om a decent size tour they d find it difficult cutting in to the 5 minutes the lighting guy has to skype his kids before dinner and showtime.

Expect a white middle class utopia and a feeling that the world is gonna change for the better, only to be left with a feeling of disappointment upon return to real life. Lots of walking as well.

Most people will retain a connection to the music of their formative years. Phyllis Dare still gets the juices flowing even know. There was an excitement to Punk. If the music still generates a modicum of enthusiasm for some, then that s no bad thing. But a gentrified mosh pit is not good.

There s nowt wrong with having a connection to your youth, just when it ends there and stops you having an open mind. As for punk, I was lucky enough to be living in London at the time, and so caught many of the acts on their way up, but by about 78, it was clear that the bubble had burst. A few of the bands could evolve like The Clash, Siouxie and the Banshees or do a Lydon style PIL, but the excitement had gone, so time to move on. I remember seeing early doors Human League, before Martin Ware went off to do Heaven 17, in about 78. Brilliant... OK ripped off from Kraftwerk, but I was taken by the contrast of the mosh pit, to blokes stood around doing nothing in these frames holding synths. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I_NStTkSRQw I liked the subsequent whole explosion of 80 s synth pop...some of it quite noir, some of it cheesy as fuck. Not really sure it was ever a movement, but some fantastic tunes from the time... a bit neglected now.

I went! Awesome day and am currently sat in the hotel having breakfast. Not been to slam dunk before but the line up on the fireball stage was fucking amazing this year. Were you working Saxondale? Title: Re: Gigs Post by: Saxondale on Monday, May 29, 2017, 11:54:05 Glad you enjoyed it mate. I was the site manager. I stayed at the genting hotel as well so our paths may have crossed. I didnt manage to see that much as I was mostly dealing with fence panels that had blown over during the day. So if you saw an old man in Hi viz worrying over holes in fences that was me. I was over at the fireball stage a bit later during the night. I was pleased with that stage it really worked well. Knackering few days though.

Title: Re: Gigs Post by: Honkytonk on Tuesday, May 30, 2017, 13:23:33 You all did a great job Saxondale, must have been a tough week for everyone involved in that industry. Me and the guys I went with said how well run the whole thing was. One of the best spirited events I have been to recently too, staff and punters alike were friendly and chill. I know it s your job and all but thanks for putting on a great event despite everything. Zebrahead had some minor technical difficulties that meant they started a bit late. Bassists microphone didn t work either for the whole set. Didn t matter though as they were still fucking amazing. There must have been 16 crowd surfers at one point (it was a security guards birthday apparently...). I ve got some footage of the circle pit that formed during less than jake s set and it s larger than I remember... Title: Re: Gigs Post by: Saxondale on Tuesday, May 30, 2017, 15:17:25 Thanks Honkytonk. I admit the Manchester incident hit hard. Last timeAriana was in the country I did the tour and one of the companies I work for were promoting it again this time. My friends were up there backstage and didn t know what had happened but the guy doing my job saw the aftermath. I spoke to him on messenger last night and he s clearly struggling. The venue guys are friends of mine as well. I was asked if I could to go up and do the load out if they were allowed to move anything on the Wednesday and really wanted to, just to go up and help in anyway I could, but they didn t let anything get moved that day. So yeah all in all it was tough. The live music industry is a weirdly small one, not many people work in it. Anything like this happens really hurts.

It was last night in Brum. They were a bit "meh", OKish, but a bit flat - kept looking like they were waiting for the audience to spark them into life, while the crowd looked like they were waiting for a bit more from the band. Like a popcorn punk version of many a season at the County Ground, really. I m not a huge fan of them anyway, they re a bit bubblegum for me although I quite like a couple of their tracks as part of a playlist, but overall they came across as a bit arrogant and just going through the motions. The support act was good, though, Frank Turner - tons of energy, good interaction with the crowd, great set.

Saw Ride on Monday at their hometown gig at the New Theatre. Awesome,in the traditional sense of the word. They still make an incredible noise with out losing sight of a good tune. It s been a while since I ve heard a wah wah pedal too. Last time I saw them was Reading Festival in 1992 and I d say they were better now. The band all look pretty much the same as they did then,apart from Mark Gardner who has completely lost all his flowing locks. Andy Bell signed off by saying "we re the Shoegaze Beatles,Goodnight"

It always bugged me that Swindon never produced a decent band during that era. Oxford,Reading and Bristol all produced era defining acts yet we had to live on former glories of XTC.

I was there too...it was some night, wah wah indeed. However, I don t think I ve ever been to a gig with such a peculiarly defined demographic: I d say 95% were between 45-50...it was a giant Zodiac 1991 reunion, and all the better for it. Title: Re: Gigs Post by: Saxondale on Wednesday, July 12, 2017, 23:16:49 I saw them last year at the Anson Rooms in Bristol. You are right, it was a very specific demographic. I saw 2 members of my old band, 3 people I used to go to gigs with and get pissed with between 1988 and 1994, one of the people I worked with at a restaurant in Bath from 92 - 94 and 3 girlfriends of our old band. One of which is now my wife. Title: Re: Gigs Post by: Sir Cliff Pipehard on Wednesday, July 12, 2017, 23:47:04 Quo e from Saxonda e on Wednesday Ju y 12 2017 20 32 54 2 words B

In fact thinking about it, the Ride demographic was so precise that our little group of three were all born within two months of each other - clearly the League Cup spring of 1969 bred a fine vintage.

Title: Re: Gigs Post by: Saxondale on Monday, July 24, 2017, 21:24:07 Its not strictly a gig in music terms but I went to see Daniel Kitson at the roundhouse last Friday. The guy is a fucking genius. He manages to say exactly what I think but hilariously with wit and charm. He intertwines 4 or 5 strands performing in the round using lighting which he is cueing himself going from the contention at the start that I live alone and finishing (spoiler alert) deciding he is not alone. Its a truly stunning 2 hours that breaks the boundaries of normal comedy shows and strays into monologue and theatre. One thing, no interval.

It was really good to see a decent 90 minutes in Swindon, its been a long time. Absolute dogshit venue though but I did lose about 2 stone in sweat. I must commend the husband and wife behind me and the 3 girls to the right who did not shut up all night despite repeatedly being told that people had paid £40 to listen to the band not them. In fact, I can t remember the last concert that didn t have imbeciles shouting at each other throughout the concert. Levellers and show of Hands really good last week. For the folkies out there Sam Kelly and the Lost Boys were very good - hadn t really heard of them before. Richard Thompson, Oysterband and Lau lined up in next few months.

Yeah it s not bad in there. I always feel it would be better if the upper tier seats towards the rear were elevated above the crowd in the floor. Making it more hippodrome style (I guess then it wouldn t be an "arena"). Saw Placebo in there last December and even though right near the front, the sound was good. Had a listen from the rear floor too and it sounded great. Kudos to Notts there, a lot of arenas sound shite.

Arenas are usually too quiet, TURN IT UP! Title: Re: Gigs Post by: Saxondale on Saturday, September 30, 2017, 15:47:00 As arenas go, the motorpoint is one that is always a compromise. My last show in there was Biffy, but because of the size of the venue we could only put half the production in. Its not really an arena, certainly in the tradiotnal sense, just a big room with a standing floor.

You know more than most. I agree with all that. I like the trade off with the Motorpoint though. In fairness though i prefer even smaller venues in Notts. Glee Club, Bodega, Rough Trade, Jam Cafe etc. All offer great intimate settings which have hosted some great bands past, present and certainly in the future, which i m sure you know too well.

When I saw The Fall Mark Smith had singing issues, he was terrible, probably the worst performance I have ever seen ever by any band. Saw the Charlatans as well about the same time, they were really poor too but I am not a big fan of theirs but I got freebies from their tour manager, so it was rude not to go.

The Fall are like marmite I guess. A fairly stable line up since 2006 and have been ok whenever I ve seen them. A few beers beforehand do help though. The Charlatans have had their problems with substance abuse over the years. I ve mainly seen them in more recent times when Tim Burgess has been clean and they have not disappointed. No excuse for that haircut though. Title: Re: Gigs Post by: adje on Thursday, November 30, 2017, 16:47:24 Quo e from Wobb y Bob on Wednesday November 29 2017 19 49 37 Annua dose of he m gh y Fa

I always found that an Oasis / Beady Eye crowd liked to sling the beer around, so always tended to hide at the back. Suspect that it won t be any different for Liam solo.

I suppose originals is a relative term. They d been around a decade when I saw them first in 75, and I reckon Peter Tosh had perhaps gone by then, Bunny Wailer might have still been around. Aston s bro Carlton might have been there too.
