    Just back from Steve mason at the trades in hebden….. good but not as good as last December, more reliance on backing tracks, less acoustic groove. Some banging beta band numbers though. Lots of huge beery blokes tonight, god I must be getting old!
    Edit. It was three years ago, not last December!

    Just back from the Orielles at the Trades in Hebden. First gig there since before lockdown. It is such a great venue. Absolutely top notch homecoming gig. They had the place bouncing

    Mogwai last night. Also Mogwai tomorrow. Great show last night, not the best setlist ever tbh but any show with Helicon in it is a good show.

    Ah I’m jealous @binners that would have been right up my street.
    Had to give Richard Hawley at the leadmill a miss on Tuesday due to broken ribs and flu like illness. Not up to gigging at the moment. Not sure what the next one is. Possibly nothing till March. Can’t have that!

    @docrobster – they’d done two nights running there due to the demand. It was heaving. A great atmosphere, as you’d expect from a local pre-Christmas gig. They were absolutely brilliant!

    The Orielles

    Hope you’re feeling better and getting to gigs again soon fella

    first night of the Viagra Boys tour last night at nottingham, loved it. seb really engaged with the crowd, and the bass players just a machine, driving the sound all night long. reminded me in parts of primal scream swastika eyes era.
    jason williamson came on during big boy for a cameo, just a great show to watch.

    also a nod to Fat Dog who were an enjoyable lively support band, reminded me a bit of gorgol bordello’s ‘gypsy punk’ style.

    This is my favourite photo of stupity – Anna Calvi right there! in front of you! So you erm watch her on your phone screen. 😆

    I thought it was Carol Decker 😆

    I remeber booking a gig a couple of months ago, but can’t remember who/where 😆

    Saw Half Man Half Biscuit at the Electric Ballroom in Camden last night. Fantastic gig with a great set list.

    I don’t think HMHB could do a bad set list if they tried.

    Anyone want two free tickets for the 1975 tomorrow night? Was supposed to be going but have gone on a last
    Minute holiday instead.
    Last Minute edit….it’s in Liverpool.

    The Delgados at the Barras in Glasgow last night, completely magic.

    “Bathe in our glorious back catalogue!”

    Burns night gig so playing the intro of their take on Such a Parcel o Rogues then launching straight into Under Canvas, Under Wraps from their first album was pretty ace.

    I’m not a big one for gigs these days but I want to see GOAT in glasgow, it seems to be sold out lots of places but eventim has tickets, are they reliable?

    They’re a proper reseller (as well as a first sell agency) – but on resale the price follows demand / scarcity so you should be safe albeit poor.

    Turns out GOAT aren’t oversubscribed so it was face value, just £2.50 delivery on tickets I download and print myself 🙂
    Thanks

    Thought I’d missed out on GOAT but just ordered from Eventim. Used them before and although I had a problem it was resolved.

    First gig of 23 is now booked.
    SUEP at the delicious clam next Saturday. My gig buddy who is a huge porridge radio fan heard them on Marc Riley last night and suggested it. Had a listen. Sound great. Boom! We’re in!

    Pip Blom? Last Thursday at hebden trades? I wanted to go to that as it was my actually birthday but no one wanted to do it on a school night. Saw them last November at yellow arch the night before we saw tbc at hebden. My pal wore his pip blom t shirt to the bug club. We thought they (pip blom) were great but yellow arch isn’t such a great venue. It was quite cool that the bands dad was doing the merch stall though.

    Pip’s Dad was still doing the merch stall on Thursday. He’s in a band called Eton crop.

    Nipped up to Dundee to see that Frank Turner again… Bloody incredible show, I’ve seen dozens of full band sleeping souls shows over the years and I reckon that was probably the best yet, probably helps that they’ve never done a full band show there before and it was a proper sweaty sized venue ideally shaped for getting the rowdy people down the front and letting the stand stillers stay up the back. Just an absolute joy.

    Mull Historical Society in a few days which should be great too then Titus Andronicus next week

    Colin Hay in the Old Fruitmarket Glasgow last night. Absolutely fantastic night’s entertainment, very funny stories and still has the voice and great new songs. Two or three Men at Work songs as well.

    Gutted that Ozzy Osbourne has finally completely cancelled his re-re-re-re-arranged tour but I have to say it was expected. So I decided to look into tickets for Kiss (they are touring at almost the same time) – they want £80 for crap seats, up to £140 for half decent ones. Sod that! Unsubstantiated rumours now that Judas Priest (who were supporting Ozzy) might support Maiden instead (which I have tickets to see).

    Next up though for me is Pigsx7 then Elvana which should be fun (Elvis-fronted Nirvana).

    I’m sure Elvana will be wild, it went off when we saw them at Lindisfarne fest last year.

    A bit quieter (literally!) for me over the coming weeks.

    Pretenders at the Cluny on Monday. I don’t think I’d be really excited if this was at any other venue but I do love the Cluny.

    Suzanne Vega at the Sage on the 18th.

    Roachford(!) at the Fire Station in Sunderland on the 4th March. Saw him/them way back in the day and had a great night. Looking forward to this.

    Then nothing until Ryan Adams in York on Easter Friday. Have seen him multiple times over the years and really do like his mumbling in the darkness style.

    Didn’t he announce his retirement from touring a short while ago? You have probably just cost me £50+ quid and a trip to Bristol next Tuesday! 😀

    Never heard the retirement bit but he was great last night…worth every penny 👍.

    Bum. Young Fathers.

    Vaguely on my radar but then heard them playing an Indie Venue week special in Norwich, recorded last night for Steve Pacamac’s 6-Music show and thought wow!

    Got home just now and looked up if they’re playing anywhere near me…. and they’re at Kingston Pryzm tonight – about 3 miles from my workplace. And just too late to turn around and get back to them.

    Hazy Jane’s at bootleg in Blackpool as part of indie venue week. Lazy comparison to royal blood/slaves…. Really enjoyed it, first gig for a while, couple of real pints, couple of Shandy’s, home at a decent time. Bongo.

    I don’t think HMHB could do a bad set list if they tried.

    I think it’s one of those immutable laws of nature that states that a HMHB gig will always have a superb setlist. Let’s face it, with their back-catalogue any setlist will have crowd favourites in it. Having said that, I’d be disappointed if ‘Joy Division Oven Gloves’ wasn’t there. They’re playing Bristol in September…

    My first gig of the year was last night at The Roundhouse. E-ticket system after buying from Ticketmaster was a mess, ended up with the very nice lad at the ticket office going against protocol and printing my tickets out, so for the first time in ages I had real, honest-to-goodness tickets! Bit of a Brucie-bonus with the support, who turned out to be Lo Moon, who I first heard on 6Music a while back. They reminded me very much of Talk Talk, so I’ve been wanting to see them for some time. They were excellent, more ‘energetic’ than I was expecting!

    The headline was Metric, who I’ve seen a bunch of times, but not in a venue the size of The Roundhouse, which really suited them, having a big stage to move around on – Emily their singer moves around a lot on stage! Bloody brilliant performance the whole band were having a great time, and at the end Emily thanked everyone for turning up, and for their support, and got rather teary.

    Young Fathers.

    Supposed to be seeing them at Chalk in Brighton on Monday, first gig of this year… just hoping to be rid of bloody Covid which I’ve had since Monday!
    Seen them plenty of times before, but been a while so would love to hear the new stuff live.
    If I can’t make it first will be Jockstrap in Oxford.
