Part of XTC, TC&I, are at Swindon Arts Centre again tonight & Tuesday. Therefore another invasion of fanatics from USA, Canada, Japan, Italy etc. Good for the local economy.

SHVPES (yet more capital letters) are at Swindon's Level 3 on Monday. This is Iron Maiden's Bruce Dickinson's spawn, right? Can any of you metal / hardcore types tell me if SHVPES are worth seeing?

Johnny Marr at Bath Forum last night. Brilliant as ever. DMA’S in Pompey next month. Excellent live band. Gonna be massive soon imo.

Johnny Marr is fantastic. I met him a few years ago at a gig. Check with Exiled Bob first though to confirm the legitimacy of my claim  Pint

That’s an oddly detailed description to give of a band you don’t like after a listen to one song, supposedly? Especially to be saying they sound like they’re trying to be something they’re not?!

Fair enough if they’re not everyone’s bag... the twitter comments about their performance on jools earlier in the autumn were cut straight down the middle from glowing admiration to “hipster shite”. I’m firmly in the “most important band around at the moment” camp, though.
Unless Kaisers, strokes or Franz had some very early stuff that I’m not aware of, I’m really not understanding the comparisons there. They are very different beasts.

They’ve all got their place ,but idles are justifiably (IMO) the hype band of the moment. They’ve been ripping it live for a while now.


The drop at 4:30. No pint is safe.

What ever happened to the good old days of saying “meh, not my thing”?

Sorry mate, totally missed this. I suppose I was largely critical of them in my previous. I listened to three of their tracks and yeah I just wasn't quite feeling it. They may well be a band that sound better live.

To me they still seem like they are trying too hard "look at us causing a ruckus.", when that has been done before. Not saying it isn't fun for them but it is how it projects to me.

Like I said I'd happily see them if they were at a festival but I wouldn't rush to get tickets for them. Unless they are better "gig live" (not tv live, different animal). Try and convince me?  Cheesy This btw, coming from a left leaning snowflake too.

Now PSB - Yep seen them live about three times and they are great. Pretty underrated duo I think and deserve much more exposure, yet I think they like it like this. Seen them in very different set ups. One at a festival, one at a really small intimate venue of less than 100, and the other at a larger venue. Each time they were great.

Another live band I enjoy is Bears Den. Those lads are a great bunch too. Awesome acoustic set they do too.

Off to Butlins at skeggy tomorrow for 3 days of folk music and possibly a few ciders. Saw Chris wood in brizzle last week. He's a miserable old fucker so is great. At other end of the spectrum saw ratboy in brizzle the week before. Oldest person there. They had a support act called grandson who is worth keeping an eye on.

My daughter was at Ratboy and loved it.  The pits were apparently intense and she also said Grandson were really good.  You're so in tune with the 15 year old girls Chalkie.

Don't know if we have too many folkies here but some music in skeggy this weekend. A northern band called merry hell were very good in a British pogues sort of way and my ears are still ringing from a great act called noble jacks. Strawbs were excellent and Steve Harley surprisingly excellent.

Think I've heard of them/seen them play before, Chalkie.
