    Tempting, but my last trip to see him in Bournemouth set me back a couple of hundred + so I'd be stretching myself a bit. Nick Cave and Patti Smith though. Fucking hell.

    Dr. Furface One small step for man

    A few years ago I had a ticket to see Alice Coltrane at the Barbican, but sadly she died just a couple of weeks before she was due to play. So I have to congratulate the Barbican for not giving up on her music, by bringing over the Ashram Community Singers from the LA-based community which Alice founded in the 1980's, to perform her music which was released this year by Luaka Bop as World Spirituality Classics 1: The Ecstatic Music of Alice Coltrane. And very good it is too.

    However, I'm not sure this 'gig' is for me, as there are certain stipulations the audience are required to abide by, including not drinking alcohol before or during the event, and having to leave your shoes at the door. This event also encourages the audience to 'join in, chant and sing along' - although it's not mandatory - and there will be complimentary vegetarian food provided after the show (though they don't say if you'll be allowed to eat it after you've put your shoes back on or not).

    Anyway, if you exist on a higher spiritual plane than I do and you fancy going, you can get tix here (nb. it's not actually at the Barbican but up the road at LSO St Luke’s) The Ecstatic Music of Alice Coltrane Turiyasangitananda | Barbican

    That's sold out.

    The Ashram singers are doing 2 shows, at 11.00 and 5.30. I'm intrigued enough to go but 11am is too early, though 5.30 should be just about ok for staying sober. But the shoes and socks thing, I'm not sure I'm prepared to go that far!

    binka !!!!!!!!!

    Last night went to see Ibibio Sound Machine. She's great but I didn't think much of the band - especially the bongo man who loved himself far too much and would be better off going to the back of the stage where he belongs

    I went to see The Magic Band in Manchester last night. Don't know anything by Captain Beefheart so went in with no expectations, was really good for the most part although I was bored about half way through the second part.

    Was nice to be in an audience where I was about 30 years below the average age :thumbs:

    Ian Svenonius from Nation of Ulysses is on a short solo tour this week as Escape-ism - London on Friday and Saturday, Manchester on Sunday, Glasgow on Monday and Nottingham Tuesday. Defo going to Manchester.

    I remember Nation Of Ulysses being interviewed in one of the inkies - they were photoed wearing pyjamas and they were banging on about how they never sleep and the idea of sleep is a con. Something like that. I hope Svevonius has had a few sleeps since, though it doesn't look like it
