I am going to see Kasabian in 10 days in Strasbourg, Muse in Luxembourg in May (and at Wembley Stadium in June) and Chemical Brothers in Luxembourg in July. Was going to see The Killers in Cologne but back in the UK for a wedding that night  :evil:  Hoping more top acts will be coming to the Grand Duchy as well

Klaxons for me in May! £13 a ticket.

Interesting about the ticket prices.

Kasabian is 21 Euro which is about £14
Muse is 38 Euro which is about £25 (the gig at Wembley is £40 and Klaxons are there as well  :mrgreen: )
Chemical Brothers is 36 Euro which is about £24.

Think tickets work out a bit cheaper over here! :mrgreen:

Have to say I was dissapointed with Razorlight when I saw them overhere. Very short set, their encore was 2 songs which I didn't recognise, the lead singer has a face you'd never tire of punching and it wasn't loud enough.

Hope you enjoy it more than I did R4E.

Well I know all of their songs, and don't really have a problem with Jonny Borrell even if he is a bit full of himself so I'm sure I will be fine.

But thanks for your concern!

Kasabian last night in Strasbourg were very impressive. The lead singer was clearly off his face but got the crowd going and the band's energy and overall performance really got the place rocking.

Weird venue, capacity of 750 standing and 150 seats at the back. We got lost on the way home though, should have taken an hour and a half but for some reason we ended up in Karlsruhe in Germany and ended up going back to Strasbourg to start again! Got home at 5am, shattered today!!

just had a voice from the dead contact me and the Lyrical Gangsta has penned my rap.

My name is Fred, I'm a natural born killer
I've got big balls like a 10 ft gorilla
I'm a one man army, a Sherman tank
I could fill a swimming pool when I have a wank
I'm a ninja, a hurricane rolled into one

Okay you wanted a song, so here's an attampt! Adapted from (and to the same tune as) I Can Do It Without You by the Kaiser Cheifs

Quote
Our club doesn’t look the same,
They want to move us down the motorway
The County Ground’s where we want to stay,
The board can’t even spell CVA

We can do it, we can do it, we can do it, we can do it without you.
we can do it, we can do it, we can do it, we can do it without you.

Mark D’s been sacked again
Packed his bags and got on the train.
You've got nothing that’s clever to say,
Nobody's listening to you anyway.

'Cos we can do it, we can do it, we can do it, we can do it without you.
we can do it, we can do it, we can do it, we can do it without you.
Because we know you’re not very good.

La la la, la la la la la la la la la, etc.

What you want here?
It doesn't matter!
I think you know that we’re better off without you.
What about our club?
It doesn't matter!
Cos everything that's done is all about you

Bill’s army’s crying out for change
We hated you from the first day
Mikey D is the one to blame
So full of himself there’s no room for brains

We can do it, we can do it, we can do it, we can do it without you.
we can do it, we can do it, we can do it, we can do it without you.
we can do it, we can do it, we can do it, we can do it without you.
we can do it, we can do it, we can do it, we can do it without you.
Because we know you’re not very good.


As for the singing I do sing a bit, but only have Sadie and Johno to vouch for me on that one!

Quote from: "flammableBen"
I want Fred to do a John Barnes style rap in the middle. Otherwise I will not be purchasing a copy.


OK

just had a voice from the dead contact me and the Lyrical Gangsta has penned my rap.

My name is Fred, I'm a natural born killer
I've got big balls like a 10 ft gorilla
I'm a one man army, a Sherman tank
I could fill a swimming pool when I have a wank
I'm a ninja, a hurricane rolled into one
I won't stop until the battle is won
I'm harder than hard, like fatbury's wank sock
Your time's running out Mike, TIC TOC!


I think we need to go with this !


That's ace, i think you should ask Bowden for a half time face off, battle rap styleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee.

Could always have a kinda transition from the song to Fred's rap and back into a final chorus of a drunken football chant of the song

Just an idea like...

Let it never be said,  that the CVA's paid
Your more likely to get, dear old sandy gray laid
There is nothing Mike needs, 'cept some more donna meat
But hes not really fussed, if he fucks with my team

[chorus:]
Mikey, mikey, mikey, mikey (aaaaahhhhhaahhhhahhh)
Sell up sell up sell up sell up (aaaaahhhhhaahhhhahhh)
Coz bill power has some money (aaaaahhhhhaahhhhahhh)
Mikey, Mikey Mikey Mikey

Due to No money left, next season is cancelled
Let the clocks be reset and the pendulums held
'Cos there's nothing at all coz we've got no money
so lets follow yeovil, and support supermarine

[chorus]

Mikey D, Mikey D please please go away please
coz you've screwed us as much as you can
Mikey D Mikey D, please please go away please
And take willy sandy and bowdeeeennn

[chorus]

Mikey Mikey Mikey Mikey
Sell Up sell up sell up

So another 'big' band come to Luxembourg and I leave feeling a bit dissapointed. Kaiser Chiefs just didn't come up to scratch for me, perhaps it was because the venue was half full and the atmosphere was a bit flat but I left a bit left down. Next up were Keane and I am probably going to get slaughtered for this but they were fabulous live, put in a really energetic performance and the usually laxadaisical (sp) Luxembourgers really responded to them, one of the best live performances I have seen, which was matched by Faithless who choose to play (in my opinion) their most famous song, Insomniac very early in the set. This was met with some top drawer moshing and despite not being able to jump up and down (yet) was one of those spine tingling moments that music can sometimes do to you. You know with Faithless that you are always going to get a good performance and they are worth going to see even if only for Insomniac, God Is a DJ and that old song that I can't remember.

You've missed an album there Mr Orange. The Optimist LP was their first album. Haven't heard it in years, but it's damn good. Mostly acoustic.

Started a Turin Brakes cover band once, but our practices always turned into all night red wine, weed, and gran turismo sessions. Miss those days.

Well the 1 day festival in Lux was a hot affair, I now look like a tomato!! We got there at 11.30am just in time to see local act.

Eternal Tango - Wasn't expecting much but was surprised to hear that they were actually quite good and played some decent tunes

Cribs - Very early and low down in the order and I was surprised at how bad they were. First song My Bovine Public was possibly the worst performed song I have seen for some time. They dedicated a song to their brother that died earlier this year which was the highlight. Overall I wouldn't recommend them live.

Culcho Candela - A kind of german hip hop/reggae act. I hate this style of music but have to admit live it was ok, aimed at youngsters more though.

Anti-Flag - Appalling although the locals loved them.

We Are Scientists - Superb, really good live and they are very funny between songs, the boy with the mustdash was hilarious!

Mando Diao - Very good live

The Kooks - Better than I thought, the crowd was really up for it as well. Good performance

The Verve - Played a mix of old and new tracks (which were typical Verve songs). BitterSweet Symphony was a clear highlight in the singalong stakes although Lucky Man runs it close. Good to see a band I used to listen to at school and never got a chance to see earlier in life.

Overall for 43 Euro, About £30 pretty decent value!

Awful sound at the Koko though. And extortionate prices for a beer (which turns out to be from a can). Anyone been to the new(ish) Camden Roundhouse? I see My Bloody Valentine have a residency there at the moment. That would be very loud, of course.

I saw Eagles of Death Metal at the Koko a few years back - awesome, Josh Homme came on to play drums for the encore - he was fucked on something (probably listed in QOTSA's Feel Good Hit of the Summer!)

It's a really relaxed festival - conditions were always clean, festival goers were generally not morons. 2006 will be hard to beat when I go there again because the weather was amazing and the bands were pretty good too.

Also RW has a brilliant lay-out. Outside the festival site you have a long, straight road with bars and food stalls... which is really nice at night.

The smaller stage is great especially considering the acts that have played in there - I saw Sigur Ros in the smaller stage that year.

One bad thing was they didn't let you take any of your own drinks (inc. Water) into the site - I think you can take/get away with a camelbak thingy though.

Oh and public transport was free when showing your festival ticket.

Rock Werchter Festival in Belgium on Thursday, can't wait.


I went there in 2006 - just awesome.

Going next year - cannot wait for that.


Its now my local festival!

Looking forward to day 3, Sigur Ros and then Radiohead.

What was the crowd like there, say compared to the UK? T in the Park is the most mental crowd at a festival I have been to.

Cheers Rich, sounds good. Re the transport, we have to get the train to Belgium which costs about 3 Euro and then for it to be free from there is great as it is quite far away I think.

My transport was from Brussels airport - then to a train station which ushered us on to buses organised by the festival - the bus system was superb because it was bus after bus after bus... The queue was massive but didn't take 20 minutes because we were never stopped moving.

Boo - I wish I went this year now.

Neil Young excellent last night. The main is still pure class. Out of the support bands My Morning Jacket were very, very good although I'd never heard of them before. Guillemots were absolute bollox as was Rufus Wainright. Primal Scream were on another planet and Supergrass did what Supergrass do.
Apparently the Hop Farm in Kent is going to be turned into a 3 day event next year. Great value for £50 but if you do go next year prepare for a 3 hour wait afterwards in the car park unless they get their act together.

Rock Werchter was tremendous but very tiring. From memory I saw

Day 1 - rained all day and after travelling was knackered. Caught a bit of REM and then went to see 2manyDJ's in the tent, Twas awesome
Day 2 - Patrick Watson - Excellent although a power cut cut short the set, Ben Folds, ace. My Morning Jacket, ok from what I heard from outside sitting in the sun. The Verve, class, looking forward to hearing their new stuff. Neil Young, total legend 2 hour set, top drawer
Day 3 - MGMT, ace. Band of Horses - not bad. Editors, decent - Kings of Leon, decent - Sigur Ros, not as good as when I saw them last year mainly because stupid aussies and Irish were making loads of fucking noise as I was trying to listen to the music. Radiohead - Awesome, ended with Paranoid Android
Day 4 - Almost dead by this stage!! Spent most of the day in the pub. Saw Raconteurs - Excellent, Beck - Top Class, Deus - Never heard of them but awesome, have since bought recent album Vantage Point which is ace!!

I would imagine Swindon is a long way down the list of places where AMG would like another "academy" venue.

The usual reliable rumour source, friend of a friend who knows someone who lives next door to someones whose dog used to be owned by someone who'd heard the Carling Academy people were buying the old Mecca bingo hall. Almost definitely just someone thinking it'd be a good idea, and hoping out loud...

Why, out of interest, would you imagine Swindon to be a long way down the list? What criteria would satisfy AMG to move up said list? I guess lack of student base would be a good reason... Plus we've got the Oasis....  :soapy tit wank:

He plays mainly piano and sings, with a band that consists of drums, bass and lead guitar. He uses some electronic device which I think records his voice and then he plays about with it. The guitarist also does some jiggery pokery like recording the noise of a balloon being deflated on his guitar and other such things and adding it into the mix. Certainly very interesting live.

Next Wednesday - Goldfrapp and Devotchka in an open air abbey in Lux
Next Sunday - Mars Volta
August  - Maximo Park
September - Elbow in London somewhere
October - Infadels and Sigur Ros
November - Mercury Rev
December - Deus

The beauty of living in a small country is that it is fairly easy to get tickets (apart from Deus who are Belgian and so will be a scramble when on sale on Monday)

I've also heard that, not necessarily a Carling but certainly a 3K gig venue for 2 years before it is torn down to build cafes / restaurants etc.


Title: Re: Gigs

Well it would be good if they did build a proper 3k gig venue, there are definitely enough people here to justify one. I doubt AMG would be interested for the time being though, they would probably look at places like Leeds, Nottingham, Leicester, Southampton and even Reading before considering Swindon?


Title: Re: Gigs
Post by: Simon Pieman on Sunday, July 13, 2008, 14:48:12
Southampton I doubt as they have the Guildhall and one is opening in Leeds very soon (might already be open).

But generally I agree that other towns would be a better prospect than Swindon, for any investor. Unless they were a local business.

I can see two sides to it. It will get the bigger bands in and it will get the people there. But places like that don't have big bands in every week.

That said I know Dave has been working hard to get some more well known acts into Swindon and has done a good job so far. A venue of this size will only help so I'm glad if it all goes ahead ok.

Mogwai are easily the loudest band I have ever seen. I was deaf for a week after seeing them once in Bristol, and at Reading Festival one year they managed to blow up the PA system. Where are you seeing them? May I suggest ear plugs to reduce the top and low end?

The first support band was great, kinda hard-folk music..really weird but good.
Second got bottled of the stage, water chucked at them etc...not good at all.
Subways were fookin amazing though, the lead singer is just crazy. Staged dived 3 times, from the left then the right and right down the middle..fell right on top of our group really funny.
Got chatting to him after the gig, really friendly guy.
Recommend seeing them if you haven't, seen them twice now and they never disappoint.

I saw Frankie Boyle on Wednesday and was in Row B, he was very good and picked on all the front row, luckily he didn't get to the 2nd row.

I saw Jimmy Carr last year in Manchester, he was excellent but does "talk" to people in the front row.

Was looking at that for Manchester but it's a tad close to Glasto and hopefully a couple of them will be playing.

Mates of mine were on channel 5 news reecntly as they won the wedding video of the year or some such bollocks.  The video was to the tune of Friday Im In Love by The Cure shot in a proper video style.  Not sure it would have been my choice to do it like that.  There was some lip synching to that as well.

Fleet Foxes.  Excellent.  Really holds up well against the album live, which considering the 4 part harmonies they do is, I would have thought, pretty difficult to replicate.  They've also got a real charm and prescence about them in person as well.  There's definetly something more there than just a copy of the album.  Audience was captivated, could hear apin drop during the quieter numbers.

They're now doing 2 shows at the roundhouse in camden next feb.  First one sold out already.

Saw the Kaisers last week in New York and they were very Meh and smelling kike they've past their sell by date.  I've always enjoyed a drunken bounce to the Kaisers and it may have been a room full of Yanks and half-wit Paddys straight off Craggy Island but I have to admit they were absolutely forgettable.

Also caught Jersey Boys at the theatre and I wan't expecting much but it was genuinely fucking brilliant and entertaining at the same time.  Well sorth a sniff and the quality is absolutely spot on.

Ross Noble tickets booked today...

For April next year.

I'm planning on Dave Spikey at the Wyvern in March and Paul Weller at the Oasis in March.

Still undecided on whether to see The Enemy at the Oasis in April and I believe Ed Byrne is also at the Wyvern sometime early next year [EDIT - Just checked, it's 31st March 2009.]

 Couple of weeks back, one of my lady friends had done a 100 lengths of a swimming pool  for a charity thing....despite the fact she'd had a good scrub afterwards, the smell and taste of chlorine didn't half linger in some out of the way places.  :)  Had I been a chlorine fetishist, then it would have been  :cloud9: unfortunately I'm not.

I'll get over it. It'll be better than the last attempt when they drafted in Roddie Radiation in place of Terry.

Did I ever mention I met Lynval once? I was canvassing for Dave Nellist in Cov South East, and as we're going through the canvass sheets at the end of one street his name kind of lept off the page. There were about a dozen of us fighting for that canvass sheet but my friend Mark ended up getting to knock his door, with a crowd of us hanging around at the gate.

He was sound, came out to say hello to us all and signed a load of merchandise for us to auction off to raise some cash.

Well they probably do if they're intending to do anything more than just tour and play the hits. I don't think they could write anything new, that you could define as new "Specials" material without him, he was too central to their writing process.

Mind you all they need to do for the live shows is get in some psycho that can play keyboards and is happy to twat a member of the audience at every other gig.

Cross rail system.  Its been talked about or years and the staff have been living under the threat of this happening for years.  Feel very sorry for the people who work there who are now out looking for other jobs when the live industry is slowing down.

The Astorias owners are, as I understand it, going to replace the venue with another one in central London, however it will not be the same.  Mind you it did smell terribly of piss in the alleys around there.


Title: Re: Gigs
Post by: Bedford Red on Friday, January 16, 2009, 17:52:46
The new venue definately won't be the same, and i know what you mean about the live industry, there's definately not as many gigs around at the moment, you can see that everywhere. It's a quietier time anyway this time of year but there was a lot more around this time last year.

Only the big artists are selling out now (like Killers, Kings of Leon, Take That, Oasis etc) and the middle artists are struggling to sell out venues, so the poor staff at the Astoria will struggle to find something.

At least i have the memories of most of the gigs i've seen there.


Title: Re: Gigs
Post by: Saxondale on Friday, January 16, 2009, 18:11:02

Jimmy Carr was good - sitting on the front row is weird - there was a bit where he was sat on a sofa right in front of us and hes like looking at you when hes talking - its quite odd - he looks a lot older close up than he doesn on telly! luckily he didnt pick on us - he did pick on the man next to me though!

Can you tell me his 4 word, 3 word and 2 word joke please?

I saw him on his tour in the Autumn but got a little bit squiffy and can't remember any of the gags :(

My dad went to see Mark Watson in Swindon on Wednesday - his review

'He was good, very zany and full of nervous energy but entertaining. He was born in Bristol and went to school there, but I guess has Welsh roots as he mentioned Paul Bodin missing the most important penalty Wales ever had.'

I am hopefully going to see Iron Maiden in Bangalore on Feb 15th! Rock on!

Yeah I saw him at Jongleurs in London along with Marcus Brigstock. Watson was very funny although he has been on TV panel shows and isn't particularly engaging so I guess isn't as quick witted as other comics. 


Title: Re: Gigs
Post by: Rich Pullen on Friday, January 30, 2009, 10:33:26
I assume shows like Mock the Week have an etiquette where the regular panelists talk more. Plus they're heavily edited. While most of the guests just tell jokes from their stand-up routines anyway... Watson can't really do that judging from the show I saw.

Not your thing I suspect, but if you hear they're doing a secret pre-tour gig down here, give us a shout Mex.

I go year after year and have an awsome time! you are missing out of the camping as that is half the fun! The locker is a good thing but as your there only a day you shouldnt really need it!
The past 2 years have pissed it down but you just got to go there and have shit loads of fun whatever! some sun this year would be good though

Weller was fantastic.  Excellent set and the sound was brilliant - better than the last time I saw someone at the Oasis (Ash - about 4 years ago?).  Finishing with A Town Called Malice was just the icing on the cake for me (and I got some reasonable video of a couple of songs - not HD or anything, but good enough to watch again)

When we got there at about 7:30-ish, they were turning away people from the downstairs bar.  Just before the end of the support act' set, upstairs was v. busy and after about 15 mins queuing tried downstairs again.  All the lower bar had left were things like Red Bull and a couple of bottles of cider left >:(

My mate said he saw KOL there recently and the bar service was far better that night.  Ended up with a couple of bottles of Coke from the vending machines.... :cry:

Post by: chris norton on Monday, April 27, 2009, 21:35:03

Devoted to recreating the atmosphere of a live Joy Division gig, Transmission emulate the sound of one of the most inventive, evocative and influential groups of their era. Joy Division were formed in the late 1970s and dissolved in May 1980 after the suicide of lead singer Ian Curtis. The remaining members went on to form New Order and have achieved much critical and commercial success. The influence of Joy Division, however, was far reaching. They were considered the pioneering band of the post-punk movement of the late 1970s and early 1980s. More than 20 years on you can still relive the dark cavernous sound of Joy Division through Transmission one of the leading UK tribute bands.

Anyone seen them before?

I saw a good few bands at the Corn Exchange, but my recall is of some before 70, as well as a few around 70. The stand out being the Bonzos...which I'd have down as possibly 68.

I'm not very good with years...having seen a lot of them, they tend to blur.  The other thing that sticks, is we always used to go in a pub called the Dolphin, as it was just about the only boozer in the Vize, which didn't sell Waddys, as spotty teenagers tend not to like ale.

Coming and going between the Vize on a scooter in winter, was an interesting experience.

Moz was brilliant,as usual :) Barrowlands is a great venue.Found Glasgow a really nice place,will go again without a doubt.

The Greenock Morton game was a bit pants, the ground was interesting.Just a shame about the rain hammering away throughout the day.There were still people on the open terrace though,including one bloke without any hat on and several small kids.Hardcore!
Also they made the cheerleaders 'cheer' in front of both sides of the ground,it was absolutely pissing down,extreme cheerleading without a doubt.JFW would have been so proud to see it  ;)

Mex,when did you go to Greenock?Did you go to the Norse bar before the game?

I was born in Greenock, so you visited Cappielow? shame it was not a week or 2 earlier as they have been in great form and playing well.  Think the weekend game was due to winding down at the end of the season with nothing to play for.  It never stops raining up there, pretty depressing a lot of the time.  Barrowlands is an awesome venue as well one of the best up that way.

I drive past Cappielow on the way to the in laws several times a year.  I've been meaning to drop in for a game for about 5 years now but have yet to manage it.  You have put me to shame.

Definitely...the Merchant City in particular.

Yep,went to Cappielow.Was ace,just a shame about the weather.Morton had nothing to play for but it would have been nice to see a bit of a decent game.Expensive to get in as well really,£16 in the main stand.

Just can't get over what a good weekend it was,have to admit i wasn't expecting much from Glasgow.Would recommend it for sure.There is an amazing resturant called Arta,that is done up like a Baroque fantasy,i've never seen so many candles in my life.Although we didn't eat there as the chief outside having a fag told us the food was crap! My other half fell in love with a bar/resturant/brewery called West Brewery where they brew the beer to German purity laws,think for that place alone we're be making a return trip!

I really need to get round to listening to Brakes properly. They keep getting recommended to me but somehow I've accidentally avoided listening to them. I shall get downloading later and make a subsequent purchase(s) if I like.

I'm pretty poor on effort when it comes to listening to new(er) bands and I don't listen to radio either.

Would the news report go something along the lines of?:

Concert goers seeking a Thriller have been left bemused by poor organisation and a lack of shows. One 'person' lucky enough to snap up tickets explained

"He said he wanna be startin' something but he hasn't shown up. I think it's his human nature but he pretends he's a smooth criminal, whereas he's bad he's bad and he knows it."

Critics suggest Jackson takes a hard look at the man in the mirror, remembers the time his fans gave him one more chance and suggest he's got to be there for his next show. His many fans however will be asking 'will you be there?'

It was pretty good Dazzza. Certainly not the best singer in the world but very very entertaining and between songs was extremely funny. I know you aren't going to see comedy but everyone left with a smile on their face. Certainly is charasmatic. Played 3 songs from his first album and the rest from the new album and I thought overall it was a pretty decent gig. Would recommend as the crowds will be better in the UK as well as in Lux, people barely move!

Berlin's a great city.  If you have time the Third Reich and Cold War walking tours are ace.  You can also see a panda (the nearest one the the UK I think).

I'll verify that ! Good gig and very hot !!! Read the report in the adver today and the correspondant seems to have a real downer on Kasabian !!? , seemed to think the crowd were the only reason the gig got going, not from where I stood (or jumped), crowd and group fed off eachother.

Yeah, he's being over negative I reckon. There was a few instances where I thought the crowd reaction was a bit poor, but in general the atmosphere was fantastic. I couldn't give a fuck anyway, I was loving it and diving around like a lunatic throughout!

I booked Nottingham before he annuonced Hyde Park - can't do both but would have preferred Hyde Park. Saw him last year and he's still an angry fucker. Fantastic live but don't expect much interation with the audience. Expect some shit hot guitar playing.

Neil Young was superb Tuesday. Anyone going to Glastonbury Friday or Hyde Park Saturday is in for a treat. He nearly appeared "happy" and engaged with the audience. He must be mellowing but his guitar playing is getting more brutal. Two hours of pure class. Laura Marling supported and was crap.

Got a few bits and bobs in the pipeline coming up for the rest of the year.

Maybe going to see Mars Volta on Monday. Also in Luxembourg I quite fancy Cold War Kids on the 21st July, Snow Patrol on the 25th, Primal Scream, Calexico and Dinosaur JR in August, Fleet Foxes in September, White Lies in October and then in November Mando Diao and the week after Prodigy who I have been gagging to see live for years!!

In England I plan to see Tom Mcrae after the Wycombe game and then Airbourne Toxic Event after the Leeds game, both at the Carling Academy in Oxford.

I'm not very good at describing bands, so here's wiki to do it for me:

Quote
Their distinct sound, characterized by high gain, extensive use of feedback and distortion, and frontman J Mascis's melodic guitar solos, were highly influential in the alternative rock movement of the 1990s, which is exemplified by the success of acknowledged fans Kurt Cobain of Nirvana, among others.

New album 'Farm' is very good - I'd recommend 'Without a Sound', 'Bug', and 'Fossils' as well for a start. TBH it's only recently I've started to explore their music further, having been a huge fan of 'Without a Sound' for ages. Saw them back in 2005, not long after they'd reformed it seems, and I didn't really appreciate it at the time. Hoping this'll be better.

And the cover of 'Just Like Heaven' is ace.

Strangely, i thought they were poor. In fact both times i've seen them in a field they've been crap. Finally caught them indoors (well, Wembley) and they were much improved. I don't think their sound works too well without something to bounce off. Just my opinion, like.

It was great thanks mate, had a few cans of Tuborg but didnt see any chap looking like your avatar :) shame it pissed down then sunny then pissed down but it was a great day mate, did you get to see any of it?


Title: Re: Gigs
Post by: Saxondale on Saturday, August 1, 2009, 16:22:36
Yep.  Saw a lot of it.  Was running the blue bar, or maybe green bar, right hand side as you were looking at the stage, so had a nice view of it all.  Had to close the bar at one point as it was getting a little unruly during the downpour and couldn't get anyone out of the bar!

But generally a really good show.  Pogues were good and the blockheads were just a bit weird with that bloke who's just like dury playing dury.

Have to say the girls were better looking over the next couple of days at the lovebox thingy, but duran duran were still shit.

Glad you enjoyed it, The Blockheads were fronted by Ian Durys old bodguard and were brilliant, as were Man Like Me, but it was a good time.

With the combined event knowlege of gk and mex we (them two) should organise a TEF Free Party in a field somewhere. Like a normal free party but without all that drum and bass bollocks. We'd never agree on the music though, so maybe scrap that part and just sit in a field taking drugs. Bonfire is a must.

I contacted the guy saying any tom, dick or uncle tom cobbly could photo copy these. They guy assures me its all kosher, his ebay record is good etc.

Poor form.  I find couples who support different teams a hard concept.  Especially if one is a glory supporting plastic and the other a proper fan.  I think I prefer the girlfriend hates football situation.  Ideally, of course, you'd want a town fan, but that does leave quite a small pool of ladies to pick from.

only really rich hall, jimmy carr and gervais have been a letdown. had to give gervais another chance because the office is genius, but it seems he isn't that good without merchant. jimmy carr was outclassed by the support, the giant who now plays the headmaster on inbetweeners. bill bailey was ace, twice. alan carr was good, and had a then unknown michael mcintyre as support who was brilliant.

trouble with the cheap gigs is the acts are very hit and miss. plus you have to get to london really, jongleurs around the country are chavvy shitholes with rubbish acts.

Saw RGerv in Oxford on Monday. Thought his delivery was superb, his material a bit stale.

He didn't make any real insights or good observational comedy, just a load of jokes about gays, racism, masturbation etc. Which he does well, but when you've heard it so often, you'd hope for a man of his intelligence he'd be able to go a bit deeper.

Personally I just don't think he had enough time to write enough material of a really high quality with so many projects going on at the same time.

Overall, I enjoyed it and I suppose you come to expect so much than Gerv that if he's only slightly below what you hoped you feel disappointed.

The XFM radio shows are still by far and away the best work he's ever done, although they only worked so well because of his success with The Office.

he was a bit more sweary than when I saw him last time but still very funny! mind you the encore bit he did where he allowed people to ask questions made me feel embarrassed to be from round here - some of the morons needed shooting!!

Yes indeed, as does the significant other.  They were particularly popular in Italy a few years ago when we were living there, can't remember what the album was called but it was really laid-back and summery.  Haven't heard their latest stuff, I assume it's still good?

That's my feeling exactly. Probably my favourite band of the last 15 years, but they're not as good now as they were 10 years ago.

Saw them live a few years back and they played all the classics which was great, but I just don't like they're newer stuff. They went downhill after Stuart Cable left the band.

Join the club. I don't understand why people pay the money to go to the gig and then chat to their mates throughout the whole gig. If you are not interested in listening to the music, piss off outside and chat and leave the majority who want to listen to it. Its the height of rudeness.

it wasn't so bad at times, during louder songs it's not really an issue but when i saw kings of convenience you could hear every word someone said. fortunately, it was dead silent for once.

I have been to a few gigs in the last couple of years or so where I have been a bit too close to the PA and my ears have hurt the next day. That can't be good. I am seriously worried about it as I have been doing that for years now. The sensing hairs in your inner ears don't recover very well. I don't want a fucking hearing aid. Perhaps I will do a Phil Lynott - go deaf and then die relatively young.  ???

Has anyone ever volunteered to work a festival?

I'm doing it this summer, through hotbox events. Sounds pretty good, I asked on here and the consensus was that its ace and theres a good atmosphere between all the volunteers.

I've got the offer of working Latitude, Big Chill, and Reading. I think I'll pick 2 out of the three at most, Big Chill's lineup is out on Wednesday so I'll see then. I'm liking Reading's lineup - Libertines, Maccabees, Cypress Hill, Arcade Fire. Friday looks pure shit though, aside from Mumford & Sons.


Title: Re: Gigs

that was what held me back too - £200 seemed a lot. i pondered for a couple of weeks then paid it, deciding that it would actually help my cash flow in the long term - take a hit now and it gives me the feeling i'm poorer, which leads to less frivilous spending, and a nice £200 back in October.

I just hope I can make £800 last until then. May have to get a summer job.

I'd like to second this. After seeing Neil Young there a couple of years ago it took me 2 1/2 hours to get out of the car park after all the stewards fucked off after the gig ended. Either that or they were in hiding because they were nowhere to be seen. Great concert and not a bad venue and getting in was pretty east. But afterwards - bad news.   


Title: Re: Gigs
Post by: oxford_fan on Friday, April 9, 2010, 23:33:42
cheers for the warning.

its only one whole day of music this year (saturday), with the option of camping, which i think may be a different arrangement from other years? and perhaps might help to ease the congestion

however bad it is i don't think it'll top trying to get out of glastonbury. forgot where i'd parked my car, so an attempted early exit at 1am turned into a 6 hour search through fields and fields full of vehicles. felt amazing when i finally found it, though i had by then lost my friend so had to drive around looking for her.

Bob Dylan
Ray Davies
Mumford and Sons
Seasick Steve
Pete Doherty
Laura Marling
Johnny Flynn

....were all at Hop Farm. All were excellent, except I'd rather share a needle with Pete Doherty than listen to Mumford and Sons' shite. Ray Davies and Doherty were probably the best performers, but I was there to see Dylan mainly.

I actually quite like Mumford and sons.  However I now have a problem with them as I've noticed that Marcus Mumford looks incredibly like David Cameron.  And even if he doesnt look like David Cameron its in my head that he does.

I now can't look at him without wanting to punch him in his big shiny forehead.

Only about 10 mins so it seems to have improved in that respect.

Buying beer was a bit of a joke though, a 40 minute queue from midday to midnight.

I don't think Hop Farm has a high returner rate, seems to be consistently poorly organised and a rip off too, which is a bit rich for a festival which claims to put punters first.

I enjoyed it, but would be unlikely to attend again.

Saw some great stuff at Latitude.

Music:

- Tom Jones (very, very religious and refused to play any old stuff)
- The Kissaway Trail
- James (annoying, ran over which meant the Maccabees had a shorter set)
- The Maccabees
- Crystal Castles (fucking mental. lead singer, a girl, necked loads of whiskey and had a few fist fights with the crowd)
- The XX (bit slow)
- Gentleman's Dub Club (amazing find. live dub band from leeds)
- Jamie Lidell (another great discovery. awesome soul singer and band)
- Rodrigo y Gabriela (boring)
- Vampire Weekend (headlined well)

Comedy:

Doc Brown (best of the lot, youtube his stuff)
Stephen K Amos
Kevin Bridges
Mickey Flannagan (highly recommended)
Angelos Epithemiou (bizarre, i'm a big fan but don't think it quite worked though other people enjoyed it)
Rufas Hound
Richard Herring

I had the shittest quietest bar, it was on the way between stages next to the bungee and dodgems (which was a joy as you can imagine).  Everyone just walked past it as there was no reason to stay around it.  We closed it at 3 o clock on sunday and I was back home in nam for 7.  Which was nice.

Was the whole thing undersubscribed ? Although for an event of that size it always is going to look like loads of people yet somehow it seemed half empty ?
Used the two bars either side of the main stage and the one by the prog rock stage, sadly didn't go into yours, although you may be relieved about that anyway !

Yeah I think the whole thing sold badly, but from what I understand they will still be doing it next year.  Its based on a festy they do in the states which is successful.  I think they realise that most festivals take 3 years to turn a profit so will keep going.

The point about using the bars by the stage was right on the money.  They didnt seem to realise that the type of people going are not going for a festival experience wandering around doing other things, the punters going were always going to just want to watch the music so my bar was unneccesary.  Lost me about £100 in wages but whatever, I was happy to get home.

If you have rather strange taste and find the thought of 3 hairy israellis in boxer shorts playing garage rock, terrorising the crowd and destroying venues attractive, make sure you catch Monotonix.  Here's a brief clip of the singer diving into a bin that has been smashed up at a show I did with them on tuesday

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w5oWU6VkcgU

And here they are just doing the regular set.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XmEHu-QAgNE

They play on the floor surrounded by the crowd for ultimate crowd interaction.  Very entertaining.

I was at The Black Keys gig last night in Bournemouth too, cracking performance.  I am always struck by them at how much noise can be made by two musicians.  Pat Carney is one of the best drummers I have ever seen and I am always amazed at how Dan Auerbach plays his guitar.

The O2 Academy at Bournemouth must be one of the best venues around too, lovely little place.

The National were very very good. The lead singer got drunker and drunker as the gig progressed and ended up doing the vast majority of 'sorrow' wandering about in the crowd, even climbing up the balconies. The security people who had to make sure the wire from the microphone didn't strangle anyone weren't impressed!

Yep I agree they were superb. We were stood, which was nice (in front of mixing desk) but had to go in the middle of the encore so not to miss the last train (great timing as we did it with a minute to spare). Went with my bruv and his son in law who is from Oz so we had an entertaining trip back too !  :clap:

In other news i've jus got back from seeing johnny flynn in bristol. Venue was a bit odd, seeing as it was surrounded by adult shops and 'massage parlours', but the music was brilliant. I'm sure i've said it before, but johnny flynn is the greatest wordsmith musician in the country. The fact the great unwashed of the country would rather fawnicate over two bit chavs covering two bit pop songs makes me sick. This country is culturally redundant, what do we do when we run out of songs to cover. Simon cowell has ruined everything. cunty chops

That's quite funny as this morning I was thinking that exact thing regarding Simon Cowell and today's music. Think back to the greats of the 60s, 70s,80s and 90s. You could easily list 100 (probably more like 1000) bands/artists that have actually made music great. You remember where you were when you heard certain songs etc

Then take 2000 onwards and the X Factor revulsion. Absolute mindless pap that will long go into the annals of the musical dustbin.

Its a sad state of affairs that a lot of people I know are having X Factor parties to watch the final of this ridiculous programme.

This is just to add to my name dropping reputation and make JFW jealous.

Im currently in a 500 capacity club in manchester running a show with a chap called J Cole.  He's supporting Drake at the moment and Drake has just dropped in and is going to do a song or 2 with J later. (To be honest this means nothing to me.  Im a middle aged bloke with good taste in music.)

Oh, and Rio Ferdinand is here as well.  I might fall over when Im 10 yards away from him and say Daniel Agger did it.

17th June in Devizes there will be a 10 band/2 stage affair going on showcasing some up and coming bands from Wiltshire and the west. One stage of metal and the other with rap and indie. Only £6 entry. Dead Lay Walking headline the metal stage (they are playing Download this year), and ironic Wiltshire rapper "Chip Daddy" is on the other stage - well worth a trip to Devizes that night.

How did you find it? Weather was a downer yesterday, but we got quite lucky with the rest of the weekend.

Foo fighters were very very good. Was underwhelmed by Kings of Leon - their new stuff really is dire. Saw the vaccines as well, which was a properly good atmosphere.

Got back last night, so glad i took today off work to catch up on things.

Yeah, the weather Sunday was dire. We stuck it outside until the evening when we saw Cast, PIL and the Manics in the Big Top, wasn't impressed with PIL.

Agree with KOL, a lot of people said the same around us. We went off and saw Joan Jett and the Blackhearts in the Big Top instead, she is one good looking women and they were very good.

Saturday saw the Vaccines and the Cult in the Big Top, Saturday evening was the best with Pulp and then the Foo Fighters.

Overall, a good and like you expensive weekend, luckily i get paid tomorrow.

Take yer wellies (or maybe go barefoot) if there is any more rain as it was already churning up when we went on Wednesday to see Kings of Leon, who were very good indeed - as were Paul Weller and White Lies.

Back in '06 I spent an afternoon keeping my friends company in a queue for Arctic Monkeys tickets on a cold day in Plymouth.

I ordered a Dominoes pizza and had it delivered to me in the queue. Ah the envy on the shivering faces of the Devon youth.

I was at that Simple Minds Gig in 85; although i'm sure it was 86 thinking about it, U2 played the Bowl in 85.

And i'm off to see the Foos tomorrow; they were on form at the IOW festival 3 weeks ago.

Went to summer breeze yesterday. Toploader were rubbish, but it was a decent enough day I guess. Also discovered two very very very good bands. First of all a band called stokes william, kind of like a mumford/maccabees type thing. May have missed the folk revival gravy train, but they do very good songs with good harmonies

Also a band called a genuine freakshow. Not sure how to describe it, t'was very good though

Foos yesterday was brilliant.  Bob mould DJed and played a song, roger taylor also guested and during the encore Alice cooper came on and did a couple of numbers.  Fantastic.

Biffy were also excellent as ever.

Without wishing to be too much of a tosser(well too late for that really) I spent a lot of the day backstage where the promoters had built an old english pub for the Foos and guests.  Stunning.  Double decker bus in the back as well.  And stone baked pizza oven where your kids could make pizzas for you!  I haven't had as much fun backstage at a gig for years.  Couple of photos here.

I went to the salubrious settings of Hatfield House yesterday for "Folk By The Oak". Seth Lakeman headlined and was excellent. Show of Hands were also class as was Kathryn Roberts.
A very surreal moment was supplied by Ade Edmonson and the Bad Shepherds who provided an interesrting version of  Making plans for Nigel. I went 2 years ago and a guy called Jim Moray played XTC All The Pretty Girls.
A little bit of Swindon in sunny Hatfield.
A good day out for all folkies.

Punk played on mandolin folk style wasn't my cup of tea. It has a novelty value hearing Anarchy in the UK but its very hit and miss. Some tracks work and some don't. They didn't play it yesterday but their version of Down In the Tube Station at Midnight is very good.

Why'd you go off Skream?

I dare you to go and see the Skream & Benga set at Bestival, they played an Annie Mac night at Brixton a few months ago and it was one of the best sets I've ever seen and heard. Insane ability to make 5,000+ people go mental, and he is the driving force.

Good stuff!  I expect a town fan to be in that state.  To be fair in that massive tent there was one bar which was about 15 foot long on the far side of the tent.  No surprise a lot of people in an advanced state of refreshment didnt notice it.

Do you mean Stuart Pearce?....Noah and the Whale sounds bizarre....I know Noah had an aquatic adventure, but I always thought, it was Jonah who had the cetacean encounter.

If there are any Ska/Reggae fans out there in Swindon that want a good nights entertainment then 2 old mates of mine are gigging in The Messenger Pub in Covingham Tonight, they are a ska based duo from Winchester that do many many great covers of Ska and Reggae songs.

Both of them are members of Bad Manners and great guitarists and singers, go have a good nights entertainment for free.

The Specials was interesting. It was like a "This is England" convention. Nice to see a few red Fred Perry's in attendance and a few STFC 70s nutjobs there - all now very respectable people, I'm sure.
I'm now probably going to be a bit of a heretic but when the Specials are good, they're very good - Monkey Man and Do Nothing but theres' a fair amount of "padding". A good evening and a good venue but there were lulls.

In Oxford last night, Milton Jones asked which football teams the crowd supported. After a couple of "Man Utd", "Oxford", and "Chelsea" responses, a woman down the front was brave enough to shout "Swindon" - widely booed of course!

In Oxford last night, Milton Jones asked which football teams the crowd supported. After a couple of "Man Utd", "Oxford", and "Chelsea" responses, a woman down the front was brave enough to shout "Swindon" - widely booed of course!

Hope he's not getting lazy...but could be.  Also, I generally hate comedians doing football jokes, as they usually know sod all.  An on form Jones remains superb.

Exactly the same at the MECA the other night with some guy (clearly mentally unstable) shouting Oxford with a similar response.
Thought Milton was good but with his type of humour a 40 minute set was enough before potentially getting boring.

From what I've been told, the owner doesn't like paying out for workman where he can help it and looks to do most things himself, which in turn means it either doesn't get done or takes an age to do.

Didn't think it was too bad, fine for a seated concert but not sure regarding standing one. Doesn't have a sloping floor ala Brixton/Shepherds Bush O2's therefore if you get a giraffe standing in front of you then you won't see much. Also agree not much been on yet to get excited about.

Some interesting thoughts here. Thanks.

Wychwood looks as though it might be worth a day trip, but I'd like to find something with some bigger bands for a weekend, likewise heard good things about 2000 trees but again want to see some bigger bands.

I've checked out the Hullaballoo and see its not much more than 1 mile walk from home.  Might check out what's going on there for a day trip.

I'll do a more in-depth search around some time.

I saw James at Goldiggers in Chippenham when they supported the Smiths on the Meat is Murder tour. I remember thinking that the drummer was bloody brilliant - he got kicked off the band a bit later for fighting on stage with the singer (Tim Booth?). Not saying they became rubbish after commercial success, but I really liked their early quirkiness.

Not a big fan of electro - coming from listening to lots of jungle and D&B there's not enough punch for me.

What I have got into lately are people like Jamie XX, Julio Bashmore, Joy Orbison, Ramadanman/Pearson Sound, Mele, Redlight, TEED, Rustie, Hudson Mohawke, who are making some very exciting dance music.


Title: Re: Gigs
Post by: Miles Mayhem on Sunday, February 5, 2012, 16:34:48
i do agree with the punch, if there is no real heavy bassline im not that interested. There is no one from your list i dislike. Redlight is one of my favourite DJ's at the moment, his sets are jump up dup/DnB which at a big club are great. I would add Netsky, koan sound, brookes bros, Krafty Kuts, Bassline Smith, kamo and crooked and Jaguar skills all for their live sets. 


Title: Re: Gigs
Post by: oxford_fan on Sunday, February 5, 2012, 19:16:32
Yep Redlight is one of my faves, Source 16 and Progress are crazy. Would like to see him do his Roller Express show with Toddla T, at a big club like fabric.

I need to give Koan Sound a listen, a couple of people have recommended.

I'm not so keen on the Hospital artists any more, after going to a Hospitality night at Brixton before Christmas which was hands down the worst night I've ever been too - the music they played sounded like happy hardcore and we struggled to find any drum and bass. Left after two hours. Not that impressed with the stuff from High Contrast's new album that I've heard either, and I used to love his music. Netsky's album is a goodun though.

I rate Skream. He's put out a bit of trash and I'm not into his mindless stuff but Midnight Request Line, his first album, and Burnin' Up are brilliant, and Out The Box was decent too. Genuinely decent bloke too, he was booked for a student night in Norwich when he was still unknown, and came to my mates house party after.

I'm driving across America for 2 months from July 26th, then heading to Peru, so won't be able to do any festivals over here. Hoping to see some decent music and British DJs whilst we're over there though. You going to any festivals?

Glade looks decent actually, and I think I can make that one. Booked up for Field Day in Victoria Park too, Rustie, SBTRKT, Zomby, Bashmore, and Hudson Mohawke are all playing.

Oh and I forgot to say. My mate works for local radio and asked for a list of questions. I gave them the standard favourite cheese question and the answer was that they are all fans of chedder.

I bought the four walls album, really good, and the wife actually likes it as well, now it's not going through the 7.1 full blast at 2 am.

The thing about gigs in Luxembourg, is that the venue is actually very good and its so easy to get tickets. Elbow for example played last year and it wasn't sold out (about a 500-800 capacity at a guess). This also has its bad points as the crowd over here is full of French speaking mannequins.

That said, its dead easy to get near the front, get to the bar and adds to the intimate effect. Band of Skulls was the last one I went to and there must have been around 250 people there.

Sorry, its a week on Monday, so you'll have to wait a bit for the review!!

Yes, the atmosphere is generally pants so you have to take the rough with the smooth. Also as the place is packed with French speaking people who often have nothing better to do than chat the whole fucking time, it can be quite annoying when a 'quieter' band is playing.

I got into an altercation at the Elbow gig as the bloody family (more rude French, qu'elle surprise) next to me were looking at photos on their phones and having a good laugh during a quiet song so I threw my empty beer cup (50 cents down the drain) at one of them and told them to shut the fuck up as I had paid to listen to the music, not half wits looking at photos on a phone. Unfortunately the guy was much bigger than me and I was able to sneak away at the end without being lamped!!

 Sadly the last gig I imagine I will be able to take him to as he has terminal brain cancer and his life expectancy is not too good.
He did make my laugh when I told him I will have to take him in his wheelchair, he said can we take that in the moshpit, I tell him probably not, so he says ah its Ok take down the front and the pressure of the crowd will hold me up  :), good man living it up till the end

Dry the River was great tonight. As it hardly grabbed the Luxembourg public's imagination they sold 62 tickets and it was moved to a pub. Must have been 80 people in the back of a bar. So good to see these bands so close.

The singer and guitarist were choked with cold but didn't dampen the performance. Some of the 'louder' stuff was brilliant.

Coldplay at emirates last night was pretty damn good. Not my favourite band by any stretch but they put on a good show and the glowsticks are pretty impressive.

Was thoroughly impressed with the emirates, however the staff were like zombies on day release, horrific and £4.30 for a pint of carlsberg!

Getting to south London was also a 'mare, the queues for the tube were obscene, in the end we went for a curry and got a dodgy mini cab back costing 40 notes.

Can't make it but saw them last week in Woking and last night in Huddersfield and they were the dogs bollocks..I do some work on their website etc and I know Bruce, Russell and Mark so get to see them pretty often and if you are a Jam fan or just like good live music I can highly recommend them....No flashy effects etc just fucking good tunes well played, the set includes all four number one singles plus other Jam classics most people over 35 will recognise.

If you go on to their Facebook page there are some photos from the soundcheck etc I uploaded..

Guess the crowd's singing will drown out Ian Brown's god awful singing, which will be a good thing!

Enjoy, all those that are going, bit jealous!!

Watched a few of the songs from the last night on YouTube and his voice sounds fucking dreadfull, Waterfall being a prime example.

Still looked like a quality gig I'd have loved to have been at but Brown's vocals are shocking

Sorry I missed your post crispy.

Well as Guy 66 said....they were the dogs bollocks.

Old town bowl was a quirky venue and avoided most of the showers.

Music was very good indeed.....brought back some goo memories......not as many people as I expected but I reckon a few didn't bother cos of the rain....a bug loss for them.

It was a great night last night watching From The Jamm in the rain & mud at the old town bowl, the music was that good that even watching it with the Flash was still enjoyable, the only downside was that i have had to throw away the trainers i wore last night as they were caked in mud.

Flash, glad you had a good time, just gutted I couldn't get there..the sound engineer  put a picture on Facebook from the sounddesk during set up and it was pissing it down which is a shame.

 I will try to get down to Gloucester when they play the Town Hall on November 1st.

To be fair the majority of Brown's vocals were decent. Certainly sounded like it from where I was.

Totally ballache getting back but only to be expected really given the fact it was in a Venue with a residential traffic network. All part of the fun really!

Gig was fucking awesome. Great great atmosphere. Waited most of my adult life to see them and was not disappointed.

I did a little bit of youtubing and he was probably the least amusing out of all of them. Will go with an open mind though.


Title: Re: Gigs
Post by: Bob's Orange on Monday, July 23, 2012, 14:33:07
The comedy festival was quite good. Each comedian got about 40 ish minutes on stage I think. We missed the first bit of Alun Cochrane, but from what I saw he was quite good, without being uproariously amusing.

Tim Key was next and did a lot of stupid (but very funny) poems. I would describe him as a marmite comic as there were people around me who clearly found him as funny as a kick in the nuts, but he had me in stitches at times.

Dylan Moran was on at the perfect time and as he said so himself, when people had had a few drinks. I can't actually remember a lot of the material, but he amused me. Probably Key would have been my 'cup of tea' but it was good to see different variety of standup.

Did some shows with him last year and have to say he is the most unpleasant piece of shit Ive ever worked with.

Thinks he should be playing Wembley Stadium at £75 a ticket.  Treats everyone around him like shit.  Did he have his backing singers / dancers with him?  Georgie and Twinkle?  Georgie is Andrew Sachs grand daughter that Russell Brand did.

He has always been an Arsehole!!

She loved herself that singer..Georgie...no dancers...always moving her dress about and stuff.

He took himself very seriously....1000 yard stares at the audience and all that.

He said "Heres a song i did at LiveAid...i was supposed to do six but he only let me do one.".

I liked the female drummer...very nice.
