Again. I agree. I go to a gig a week on average, and usually in venues smaller than the Stones dressing room - Cabbage are good yeah, saw Hookworms couple times, not sure on the new album yet... Last time supporting my buddies band Slowdive On the worms tip... You heard Flatworms?
Tonight I'm seeing the awesome Charlie Parr, Minnesota blues/country dude...,,, and tomorrow Here Lies Man - check out their album if you get a chance, got someone serious heavy guitar grooves going on.
Will do. I grew up with Simon as teens , thick as thieves , drinking, bands, gigs etc ...one of my oldest friends. I'm so pleased for them how its all turned out , they are killing it right now My fave songs are Avalyn and Sun Hits.
Thee hypnotics. Great band!
Update on my recent gigs:
Alabama three - were ok but not up to their usual greatness
Hookworms - if you like psychedelia then GO AND SEE THEM. Jaw dropping.
Public Service Broadcasting. Saw them in Oxford theatre. Very good indeed, quite emotional show, multimedia presentation of their coal mining album ‘Every Valley’
Lined up to see:
Hawkwind - with full orchestra at Bham Symphony Hall
Shame - if you like punk with a tune (think Oasis, but better with a hard edge), potential to be very big.
Killing Joke - long-time fan. 40th anniversary tour
Anyone in the north of england, who hasn't been to the picturedrome in Holmfirth - betwixt Huddersfield and Manchester - A great live venue - good mix of original old bands, a load of good tributes and a few surprises in between. https://www.picturedrome.net/Events.htm
Can highly recommend the pre-xmas T. Rex. M. Bolan tribute , T.REXTASY
Hi folks - apologies for a bit of shameless plugging, but my own band released our debut album earlier this year. The other three band members live in Glasgow. I'm normally the bassist (and occasional keyboards and wind player) and our female singer normally writes all the songs, but if any of you like electronica, then the one song on the album which I wrote and on which I play all of the instruments on is "Waiting For The Asteroid" which is basically an ode to the end of the world so that we can re-evolve without stuff like reality TV, 'entitlement' and Jedward. The band is Drinking Bird Experiment and the album is Killer Diller.
