Been To Any Good Gigs Lately?

Recommended Posts

Don't know how long this will stay up, but it's the whole gig

Just booked for Hawkwind - unrepentent hippie twaddle of the highest order and form studying for dead pools - can't wait

No, why do you ask?  Baz Warne has now been in the band for longer than Hugh was.

Haven't been following them for years so just wondered. First saw them in 1976.

Went to see "Us The Duo" in Manchester. Not quite my taste, but pretty good. Had meet and greet V.I.P tickets. Pretty much down to earth, really nice people. V.I.P ticket autographed and a free 5 song CD.  Crowd of about 200 people made it a bit more intimate. They were brilliant with their fans, new and old.  They're in stereo Glasgow on Sunday (tonight) night. Might be worth going to see YW & MSC.

Thanks for the thought, PB, but OldWillz makes a fine Sunday Dinner of an evening and as he makes an effort for me which he doesn't have to do, my Sundays are unavailable (unless it's the afternoon, or 10 at night of course).

 

I question sometimes whether I'm a bit old for that sort of thing these days...

The Stranglers, absolutely brilliant gig again.  I'm not a dedicated fan, just a "greatest hits" sort, but they have so many terrific tunes in their huge back catalogue that every time brings different delights.  Not to be missed. 

 

Next gig - John Otway :D

Saw Russell Howard last night at the Genting Arena in Birmingham.  Very funny.  Now I've been to many a gig at that venue, mostly rock bands, I've seen people pissed up, passed out, rough as fuck, venue trashed, but I've never seen anyone kicked out for fist fighting - until last night. At a RUSSELL HOWARD show.  Most amusing!

Saw John Otway last night at a small venue near home.  John is proud to be known as "Rock & Roll's Greatest Failure". 

Do catch one of his gigs if he passes your way, you will have a good laugh and hear some decent music too as he has a really good tight band. 

He is bonkers, mind.

I've lost count of the number of times I've seen him over the years - even the Voice of Young Maryport has seen him a couple of times.

 

Incidentally, speaking of notable eccentrics - I see the Happy Mondays have a national tour coming at the back end of the year. Might well check that you

Oh my.....  99% of me says this is the dumbest thing I've ever seen.  1% of me says it would be even dumber to miss it.  LOL

Going to see Iron Maiden tomorrow in Cardiff, must admit I'm feeling a little twitchy.

The good news is that these attacks are very rare, so highly unlikely for another one to happen so soon. But yeah I'd be worried if I was going to a gig soon.

It's natural to be a bit jumpy, but I suspect they'll be taking no chances. Once things get going I expect you'll forget all about it

Iron Maiden? Fantastic. Enjoy that.

 

Speaking as someone who lived through a (very low-key) attack* once, these things can happen anywhere and everywhere, and if you stop to worry about it you can go mad.

 

 

*So low-key, in fact, that the references to it on the BBC and other websites appear to have been deleted, which surprises.

Gist: lone wolf with gun, and homemade device. It failed to go off, so he set a neighbours flat on fire (with them inside), shot others. Tried to break into ours with gun, and a few other flats. Armed police response, plus shitloads of fire trucks. Small contretemps with police then ended when he shot himself.

 

Best bit? Next day, checked on next door neighbour, as quite old and frail. Had slept through the entire thing, including parts of the tenement block being on fire!

It's amazing what some people can sleep through. Yet I get woken up by the feintest chatting.
