I do like an Alice Cooper gig.
Ooh... The Moulettes, all over the place. I recommend, if you like prog rock, or folk rock or just new unusual music with an original sound. Seen em several times, great band.
Ha, my girlfriend is mates with them. We were out with their soundman (also her cousin) on Thursday...
I got LCD Soundsystem and Four Tet booked for Glasgow next year. 4th time seeing LCD, 2nd time seeing Four Tet (but that was ages ago, so really, really looking forward to it).
Really? I'm not a huge fan, but bland isn't a word I'd use to describe him. Bland is Coldplay and their ilk.
They sounded different live, I went based on the two songs 6 music have played this year. It was the last night of their tour and he kept saying how knackered he was. There was no charisma - or that could have been me. Bland is relative and subjective.
Are you sure you were there?
he was amazing - one of the most captivating performers I've seen. He doesn't have the eyes of someone who sleeps much.
Queens of the Stone Age with Iggy Pop, Run the Jewels & The Hives, Saturday 30th June @ Finsbury Park, sounds like fun.
Faust are playing in Manchester next Thursday (with Gnod) - a show which I find myself in the unusual circumstances of supplying a cement mixer for them to utilise for some musical purpose...
faUSt + Special Guests – Gorilla
(they're also doing three nights at OTO, but they're all sold out.)
Think you may have entered into a Faustian pact there..
Bjork is on at The Eden Project next Summer.
Bought tickets for Hollie Cook for Feb in Brum.
Have no more gigs this year planned.
Gwenno in January, Fever Ray in March!
Early christmas present of Iron Maiden tickets for me and the wife
I very much enjoyed Faust at their concert last year, the old hippys.
Saw Zal Cleminson's /sin'dogs/ in Hull last night, brilliant. Seeing them again on Saturday in Grimsby. Catch 'em if you can, highly recommended.
I saw The Schizophonics last night with RFTC and they were a lot of fun. Touring the UK this week.
we (atomic suplex) played with the schizophonics the first time they came to the UK, to an empty room in Kingston... we basically just played to each other, but Pat still went absolutely nuts, they are great. not my kind of music really but highly recommended live.
I have a spare ticket for them tomorrow at Cadogan Hall as other half is under the weather... have just asked a mate, but if anyone might be interested, send me a PM.
Very professional. They were fortunate to have a decent number of bodies in the crowd, even a few pulses, which is unusual for a support on a sunday night in Dublin.
Was that the one wherethe drummer left early to catch a flight?
Just been to see Hanson and they didn't even do mmmbop!
The Transcendence Orchestra are playing OTO on thursday - their album on Editions Mego is amazing, they're surely ace live. I understand Paddy from Gnod will be playing gongs too.
Cafe OTO → THE TRANSCENDENCE ORCHESTRA + JO JOHNSON, Thursday 14 December 2017, 7.30pm
I dunno! it was at St Johns? I didn't see the drummer at the pub afterwards, in any case!
edit: actually it was 2015 not 2016 apparently. It was with Nurse With Wound and Cut Hands, pretty amazing lineup, though I seem to remember not being impressed with NWW (but loved Cut Hands and was awed by Faust to the extent I paid £20 for their NEW album [which i have barely listned to])
London - great looking show at The Pickle Factory tonight - Italian EBMish techno from Not Waving, hauntology from Pye Corner Audio and who knows what from Colin Potter (from Nurse With Wound). Only a tenner too.
Well knock me down with a feather I never imagined or dared hope that I'd ever see this but it's true...
Microdisney have reformed and are playing the Barbican next June, doing all of The Clock Comes Down the Stairs as well some of their other greatest misses.
I'm loving 2018 already! (which'll be 30 years since I last saw them)
