Can you explain more - I'm not getting what your mean, but I am interested.
Lightning Bolt has got to be the loudest gig I've ever been to! Definitely time to get some ear plugs. I enjoyed it, more for the social side. Prefer loud and heavy with more heavy and less chaotic rhythm and some tune.
giant swan was of course great! i managed 20 minutes solid of sober rave trance, people who had seen them a lot before said it was about as straight banging techno as they do. perfect for a thursday; i want to see them in a club next time.
kalidarkone i reckon ultra loud gigs like that are totally uncontrollable and random. i saw guitar wolf on monday and they sounded wonderful; last year i said id never see them again, it was a very similar gig just it left me feeling deaf and exhausted. ive seen lightning bolt and had it just be an irritating buzz, and others it is transcendental. i am just a sucker for giving those bands one more chance tho!
did you get the weird Icelandic alien disco as well, beforehand (Dj Flugvel Og Geimskip)? Not what I was expecting from a Lightning Bolt support. Quite marvellous though.
Yes but tbh I was too busy catching up with old old mates.
Saw the mighty Earth in Brighton on Saturday - absolutely superb as always....
Ghost @ Wembley on Friday.
Supposed to be going to Electric Six on Wednesday in Manchester but the tickets were purchased over a year ago and no idea where they are.
Julia Jacklin in a couple of weeks
Saw Heilung weekend before last but it was rather spoiled by a high quotient of wankers in the audience
I saw Kate Tempest last night who was excellent She asked people to put phones away after pulling a few daft poses at the start. I think everyone obliged
Giant Swan on Saturday did not disappoint. RIchard Dawson tomorrow, if I'm not careful that might be my last gig of the year.
I'm at Richard Dawson tonight. Still fancy Dame Area on Sunday but I've bought cinema tickets without thinking so need to check set times now.
Blanck Mass on 2nd December and Bad Breeding 7th still to go. Got a ticket for Shellac but election work means I won't get to go.
Oooh forgot about Shellac! Few mates are going to see Dame Area, think I'll probs end up going.
I was considering going to see Shellac but it's a traipse to Cardiff and I'm there next week to see Fat White Family.
Steve Hillage & Gong tomorrow in Cardiff, I'm expecting quality I'll let you know how it goes
Richard Dawson was fucking fantastic last night.
Someone just texted me about Girls in Synthesis tonight, reckons I might like it so I'm gonna have a listen.
I saw Interrobang supporting The Ex last Saturday without knowing their history and they were exceptional - really tight and a great curmudgeonly performance from Dunstan.
surprisingly great aren't they?
Just a bit! I was there with Mellysingsdoom formerly of this parish and my regular OTO mate and we were all blown away.
The guitarist was also in some awful band in a former life too - Regular Fries?
I don't think any of them get paid anymore, but at least they're making good music now huh
Off to Bath later to see W.H. Lung at Moles.
Proggy/psychedelic. I wasn't that keen when I heard them but fell in love with them live at the simple things festival.
I could not stop myself from moving and all the beardy geeks and the bass player were staring at me.... I think they thought I was off my head....but I was just moved....
Anyone need a ticket to the sold-out fat white family show at Earth, Dec 5th? Pregoblin support. I don't want to go any more.
Boris are touring next month with Arabrot, should be a sweet show. MONO on the London show too!!

i just saw the first gig of Adulkt Life, the first band chris of Huggy Bear has done since Huggy Bear. was really stunning... just guitar, drums and vocal... simple but intricate perfect, cliche-free hardcore, truly amazing lyrics, free jazz influenced group playing... words fail me in describing it but just go see them if you have a chance, it is serious intense
... this band/guy also played and made a very impressive trance-inducing sound (prob worked better live at high volume)... it was a sick night:
the experiment of vaping a load of high grade weed rather than drinking alcohol DEFINITELY worked very successfully for this gig, I reckon I will continue. I also feel fine today.
Went to see Fat White Family in Cardiff last night. I enjoyed it but imo the sound was terrible.
Saw them in Glasgow the other night. Wasn't fully sure what to expect and thought they were amazing.
Yes they are amazing and they blew me away the first time I saw them. IME it was the sound engineer at fault and I was not standing in a great place. (I forget to stand in front of the sound desk) One chap said the sound at the tramshed can be quite off. Another mate said that the sound was brilliant. I myself was not in a good space so might of been that it all sounded wrong .....like drinking slightly off milk.....
I'm sure I overheard someone say the sound at the Glasgow gig was a but iffy. I kinda wandered about and took the show in from a few spots (QMU has different levels) - and was decently pissed - so didn't really notice.
