worked it out now!
Just back from Dizraeli gig. He is playing his new album. I utterly love him. Now have 2 copies of his CD as felt the need to support his endeavours a bit more (will give away as a gift).

LOSE IT
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.
well noone bought my ticket so I ended up going. much to my surprise they are still pretty amazing live, I was fully expecting to be just irritated but they really do still have it. Still don't get the fuss about pregoblin though, now them I was irritated by.

Yeah!
I saw him a couple weeks ago as part of a collab with Debris Stevenson and Amy Fitz Doyley. He stole the show for me.
Will have to look out his own work - any pointers where to start?

Unexpectedly going to see the marvellous Self-Esteem do a piano show next week. So looking forward to it. There is even a chance I may start to feel festive!

Basingstoke Punk night is Friday at the Irish Centre. The Deckchairs and Geezapunks. Not what this thread is about though.

You are missing a good gig.

Went to see Dweezil Zappa last night at Leeds Town Hall. Dweezil is not as talented a guitarist as his old man but makes a very good fist of it - especially with some of his multi-instrumentalist side musicians. One lass in particular- Scheila Gonzalez - was amazing on sax, flute and vocals (as was the fella filling the Ike Willis/Ray Collins/Flo & Eddie roles). Opened with Yellow Snow followed by all of Hot Rats then an extended set of picks from “You are What You Is” and “Freak Out” - nearly 3 hours worth so eat your heart out Springsteen!

(& I remembered all the words to “Charlie’s Enormous Mouth”)

This morning I got tickets to see Dean Wareham play Galaxie 500's 'On Fire' (and more) in April. I go to a lot of gigs, but this is the one that's had me most excited for a while.

Dammit Athos, that would have been a great Xmas present for Mr K but looks like it's all sold out.
Wow, they went quick! Only went on sale at 0900.

Register with ticket swap; bound to be a few come up for sale, there. (It's also quite good for selling spares.)

Ps Your husband has good taste!

Not exactly upcoming :oops: , but my best Xmas present was festivaldeb getting two Nick Cave tickets for Cardiff, Sunday 3rd May. Utterly unexpected -- I'd thought we were going to rule this one out because of expense ....

Any excuse to go to Glastonbury, this :D, but at the Boccabar there Mark Chadwick will be doing a solo gig on Saturday 3rd February. Supported by the truly excellent Funke and the Two Tone Baby plus others. We booked a room at the Glastonbury Premier Inn, as well as the actual tickets :) ... loads of festival pals will also be coming to this gig

We also have tickets (mid-February) for the Levellers gig at Port Talbot theatre. Completely sold out gig, it's a really small venue

I discovered him when he was playing as Dizraeli & The Small Gods & saw them a few times at gigs & festivals then soon after caught solo performances of him more poetry driven. He also does a weekly show on Soho Radio called ‘scan your biscuits’.

So would probably suggest listen to him with The Small Gods. I can’t get enough of his new album.

Jeffrey Lewis is doing a last-minute solo show at Freds Ale House in Levenshulme (Manchester) this evening. I'd go except for these children - everyone else should go instead.

He was a bit of a BNP fan at one time so I'm sure it'll be a fab night for him....
I’m aware he was honest enough to express his decision to ponder voting for them but, in the event, he didn’t and his choices and collaborations ever since have proved the opposite of that. I have no problems with him or his music. He could have brushed over that episode and not have included it in his autobiography but he didn’t so Fair play to him and I I respect his honesty for it.

Regardless, he is very good live (as long as the person mixing the sound knows their shit)
