    Well. I know they said it would be A Christmas Performance, but I wasn't expecting that.




    An hour of Christmas songs. Then five of their own, including the last one. A new song. About Christmas.

    Low at Halifax Minster on Friday Night. I've seen them there before and the venue is ideal for them.

    I liked the first half hour, but had pretty much ad enough of it by then. A look at the setlist shows you got a fair bit more in the second part too, lucky beggars.

    There's a Luton band called Dinges, they play power/noise rock. At the Levels festival a few weeks ago they put Lee 'Scratch' Perry, The Nightingales and The Fall to shame. Damn fucking amazing good. And no they aren't me mates. Anyway they're playing various locations in Luton and London. It's not just ramp up the guitar noise, there's real rhythm and humour in there.

    Dec 10 The Black HorseLuton, United Kingdom
    Dec 22The Old Blue Lastw/ SpoilersLondon, United Kingdom
    Jan 20New Cross Innw/ Moose Funk Squad...London, United Kingdom
    Apr 06Of the CuffLondon, United Kingdom
    Apr 28The Hat Factoryw/ Vice SquadLuton, United Kingdom


    The first of these gigs is free and you just turn up. They aren't big news to the world. But they are good. Real gooood. No seriously, you will dance like a bastard. Well I will.

    moonsi til worked it out now!

    Earlier this year someone asked if I wanted Black Sabbath tickets which I said yes to then I forgot till last week. I bought 2 tickets which cost £££ which turned into Xmas gift to my BF along with a Julian Cope ticket and Josefin Ohrn & The Liberation. Looking likely Sabbath will be my first 2017 gig.

    We've gone a bit OTT over coming months with booking gigs for the pre-festival season.

    Sunday 22nd January, Flaming Lips, Academy, Manchester (it's Manchester Beer Festival weekend too)
    Friday 24th February, The Beat, Rainbow Rooms, new venue at Gorseinon near Swansea
    Friday 17th March, Peter Hook and the Light, Tramshed, Cardiff
    Saturday 18th March, Half Man Half Biscuit, O2, Oxford [just me for that one]
    Friday 31st March, The Leylines/Whitehall Parade, Moon Club, Cardiff
    [possible] Saturday 1st April, Punk all-dayer at the Tramshed in Cardiff
    Good Friday, 14th April, The Selecter/The Beat, Tramshed, Cardiff
    [possible] : Easter Sunday, 16th April, something called Skankfest at the Moon Club in Cardiff -- it's a multi-act ska event apparantly.

    I think that's all of them, all but the two possibles are booked now. No doubt we'll find our way to plenty of free pub gigs in and around Swansea too :)

    Real shame that. It was it being the last gig that made us decide to go. Sorry you missed it, because everyone was loving it in Cardiff, they went out on a real high.

    They were great. I've probably seen SFA 10 times over the last 15 years or so but a lot of the songs they played I haven't heard them do live before, or with something like Hermann loves Pauline I haven't seen them do for ages.

    The previous few times I've seen then they've been guilty of going on with themselves a bit and playing too many slow dragged out songs that get a bit dull. This gig though was really tight and high tempo and the room was bouncing to stuff like Shes Got Spies and Chupacabras.

    Just wish I could have seen them in Manchester instead of travelling to Leeds on a school night. Would have loved to have been really drunk

    Also confirms that theres no question that Radiator is definitely their best album :thumbs:

    I can't imagine it really was their last tour. They're only in their 40s and any time they want they could do a quick 12 date tour and make some easy money.

    Not a gig but booked for a 'sound bath' on Jan 29th, 1.5 hrs of singing bowl, gong and other percussion as we lie on a mat under a blanket. It's a group session and cost £15. Quite excited about it.
