    So I think it’s entirely People Who From That Other Band for the next few months. Colin Macintyre from Mull Historical Society, Frank Iero from My Chemical Romance, Laura Jane Grace from Against Me, Craig Finn from the Hold Steady, Frank Turner from Million Dead… Oh and Machine Head, which is now made up almost entirely from people who used to be in a fairly different Machine Head in the 90s.

    Bluedot was good. I now ‘get’ Hot Chip who were much better than I expected, up for it crowd made it. Thought that Kraftwerk would get boring. I was wrong, they were excellent, good show, 3D was good and not overdone. Of course, New Order kicked it out the park. So that’s 3 out of 3 festival headliner wins where usually I see no headliners at all. Daytime lineup was a bit patchy but there was science.

    Doves at Tramlines in Sheffield last night. Best set by far from the weekend. Always been a bit sceptical of Tramlines since it moved from being a city centre free event to paid for and out in Hillsborough but it was a thoroughly enjoyable three days.

    I was at Edinburgh castle to see the Proclaimers on Saturday, pretty good they are although when they play a few lesser known newer stuff that was when you really felt the nipple hardening gusts of wind

    Fabulous New Order gig in Bristol last week – lovely to hear some of the original Joy Division tracks with a backdrop of film showing Ian Curtis in their heyday.

    My wee brother lives down in Abbeyhill, he was out in the back garden trying to figure out what prick was playing the Proclaimers really loudly, and it turned out it was the Proclaimers

    PSB at the RAH on Thursday. Playing RFS with the MSO as part of the BBC Proms.

    Enough with the TLAs.

    Saw Neurosis on Saturday night. Absolutely amazing. No talking, no visuals, almost no coloured lights, just 5 middle-aged blokes grinding out the slowest, heaviest riffs you ever heard for about 2 hours.

    Best gig I’ve seen in yonks. Still buzzing.

    (They were supported by YOB who were also very good. Godflesh were so so)

    Anyone fancy planning my festival weekend for me!! 🙂

    Idles are nailed on cert, Gerry Cinnamon too. Fontaines DC have pulled out.

    Sunday is troublesome – Foals, Bunnymen or Band of Skulls!? :-/

    Who from this lot would you recommend I see…

    D-D-D-D-DAY SPLITS

    Definitely Wolf Alice and Foals. (it’s not the real Echo & the Bunnymen)
    Although I’d probably catch the Porn Crumpets and Pulled Apart by Horses – they’re supposed to be good live.

    (With my sincerest **** apologies for slagging off everyone’s music taste, natch)

    The Snuts are pretty good too.

    Quite like to see Porn crumpets, Pip blom, Rev and the makers, wolf alice. Never seen them live but they pop up on my spotify bubble. Actually no, I have seen wolf Alice at a festival and they were ok.

    Would probably go to the mondays for a laugh if I was feeling merry

    Picked up tickets for public service broadcasting prom at Albert hall tonight for 7quid. Going to be a bit hot in there I think.

    It was, but it was well worth the sweat……. surpassed my expectations, such texture and depth to the sound with the orchestra and choir, and also being able to watch them work rather than what the camera shows you.

    I watched the percussionists bowing the xylophone for ages, just adding tiny details that alone are nothing but together with the rest. Great craft, to arrange it to that complexity.

    It’s on BBC4 tonight at 11pm. Set to record.

    Sounds like that’ll be worth a record theotherjonv. cheers 🙂

    it’s also on 6 music (online https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/m000715z ) don’t know if there’s a way to download it because I’d love to keep it.

    Some apps let you record programmes – like TuneIn Radio. I’ve looked on TuneIn and couldn’t find it, so not that one 🙂

    PSB and orchestra was fantastic.

    Proper tingles down the spine stuff.

    @theotherjonv were you standing or seated?

    I was in the arena. Well worth the trip to London and rolling home at 2.30am on a work night.

    I was up in the seats. Been raving about it all day to anyone that’ll listen.

    Simply amazing.

    Muffin have you stuck it out? It’s Derbyshire at its brutal best! Hope you saw the reytons. Possibly one of the best sets I’ve ever seen. Foals for us shortly, we’ve hid most of the day in the tent.

    I have to attend wilderness fest again this year, unfortunately the music options aren’t inspiring me very much (Robyn & Errol Alkan excepted).
    So it’s just “sexiflexi” and the rum tent for me.

    Hi wrightyson – ashamed to say I didn’t go back on Sunday!

    The wife and I packed all the stuff up on Sunday morning and took it home with every intention of going back later – but… had a bath, big fry-up, had a kip, watched the F1 – then just couldn’t be arsed to go out again. 🙂

    My daughter and her friends stuck it out though and the wife has gone back to fetch her this morning.

    Best band I saw all weekend was Sports Team. Breath of fresh air. Hid away in the Squid on Saturday night and watched The Damned who were great – and as Captain Sensible said at the end of their set, at least I can say i saw them before they are all dead!

    Idles – well – overated is putting a polite spin on it in my opinion. Load of row with only one decent song.

    Here’s an interesting gig development for you. We went to see Skepta a couple of weeks ago at Manchester Depot (which is a bloody great new venue)

    As you went in you had to put your phone into a little neoprene sleeve which was then sealed with one of those magnetic tags they use to stop shoplifters. This blocked your phone signal and means that nobody in the venue had access to their phone for the whole gig.

    It was bloody brilliant! No dickhead in front of you waving their iphone around trying to film it. No people posting stuff to Instagram.

    As you left the gig, you simply ran the sleeve over a magnetic strip and it ‘released’ your phone

    I hope that this is going to be a regular thing at gigs

    That would be my absolute dream! I know Jack White did this at his gigs. Definitely the way forward 🙂

    On a self-indulgent whim, a pal and I are heading to Austin TX to see Papa M and Mogwai in a couple of weeks. Always wanted to visit Austin and Mogwai gigs never disappoint. Looking forward to it!

    just the one for me, Clutch at the Roundhouse in December. This will be awesome.

    First gig in what seems like ages last night. Epic Beard Men (Sage Frances/B Dolan) tiny club above a pub in Southampton. What a dive to kick off their tour. Loved it though, proper entertainers as well as excellent rhyming skilz. Such a cozy place they stepped off the (tiny) stage and gave us all hugs after. Quite sweaty hugs.
    This is they, not my photo, although if I was that way inclined, I could’ve got a pic right up B’s nose. My type of gig 🙂

    The Richard Thompson 70th birthday concert? Wish I could go to that. Maybe they’ll film it.

    After a quiet spell things are definitely looking up,

    Public Service Broadcasting – The Race For Space 06/09/19 @ Wakefield Market Hall

    Richard Thomson next week at Sidmouth Folk Festival.

    Of course, New Order kicked it out the park

    Fabulous New Order gig in Bristol last week

    Interesting. I’d vowed never to go see them again after more than one really disappointing gig. I think the last time was at Brixton Academy – Barney sounded terrible, a crowd almost exclusively fat male and bald. Always good to hear when a band like that pulls it back together (as I think I’ve already said upthread some of the best and worst live performances I’ve seen have been Primal Scream)

    Just in from Steve ‘n’ Seagulls. Very slick, very funny, their version of Anti-social by Trust mid-set got the crowd on board and from then on they had a ball.

    Richard Thompson’s solo acoustic request show at Gawsworth Hall this evening was bloody marvellous 🙂

    I’ve had a quiet few months on the gig front. I’m going to go bloody mental from Sept to December. Something’s going to have to help me get over the utterly shit line-up at Green Man. I may have to be removed from the site when that massive bell-end Father John Misty starts wailing his smug shite. Although I may have been sent to sleep by Sharon Van Etten at that stage. 😬

    Nice to see the thread back to life and that everyone’s having a good year. 😀

    leftover crack tomorrow

    Not a great deal. Download Festival was alright. Alter Bridge in December.

    Hopefully tickets for The Posies later in the year to reminisce my youth.

    Kids, cash flow problems and the usual shit of stuff getting in the way.
