I love the room at the Albert Hall, but the sound for live stuff in there is more often than not appalling. I approach with caution now.


Just been to see the grandmothers of invention. Enjoyed it more than I thought I would and a nice early finish considering some in the band are in their mid-80s :thumbs:

The Abominable Scotsman
I saw Mercury Rev doing a 20th anniversary Deserter's Songs set the other night. First time seeing them and it was an utterly gorgeous and enchanting experience. This lady was supporting.

Had never heard of her before. She's massively talented and gave off a Twin Peaks Roadhouse vibe. :cool:


Understands love.
I'm 70 now and was very much there for The British Blues Explosion.
This morning I have just been approached by Jo Bonamassa's UK promoter and invited to see him at Hampton Court Palace in June.
It's not what you know.


TUC Off Your Knees
GNOD/White Hills were excellent tonight.

Played the wrong way round, WH was distinctly less full. Even Steve Davies left after GNOD. the buggers following me around, I saw him in the bath the other day

Considering they've only just released their debut album, I don't think ILL are that under-appreciated - they have a national profile much bigger than many other bands with no record to sell... hope they'll get a lot more exposure now though.

Throbbing Angel

Gabba Gabba-pentin
Anyone else doing MC50? MC50th

Just discovered I can see them in Manchester in November - might give that a whirl. Worth it or what??

Van I can take or leave these days, but Mott and the MC5 and Joan Jett? Plus James Taylor and good local band The Allnighters, and what would be some pleasant surprises among the ones I've not heard of.

Unfortunately it's the big weekend for my students' exams and when I take 30 pieces of silver from Cambridge.

hm. so one of MC5, two guys from Soundgarden, the drummer from Fugazi and some other guys from yank bands I've never heard of, doing MC5 songs. It might be ok, but I'm pretty dubious.

You think? I've been to quite a lot of gigs there and it always seems pretty good to me - usually stand downstairs just to the left of the mixing desk and bar.
I've always found it too quiet & too muddy. I won't go to live shows there anymore.


The Cake of Liberty
Just got tickets for the Nick Cave gig on 3rd June. Very impressive line up including Patti Smith, Psychedelic Furs, Courtney Barnett, Nadine Shah, Baxter Dury and Bo Ningen.
