She's a lovely lady. Makes quite nice cups of tea as well.

Talk about dangling the carrot of temptation. You might as well have said off stage she wears big jumpers, nice specs and likes skimming stones down at the beach.

Don't know about skimming stones but when me and my friends used to hang out with them she was known to wear a big jumper. She may have changed now that they've gone all showbiz.

Just thinking about it, the various female member of the Long Blondes combined would be your perfect woman, having the tea/jumper/glasses combination between them. Again, I don't know about skimming stones, but I imagine they probably would enjoy it.

I bet you fainted at the gig as well, and your recollections of it are a hazy dream constructed from your unconscious thoughts.

Did you both share a bowl of illegally obtained porridge?

Yes. We sprinkled magical gumdrops on it and were taken home by a large pelican.

It was a good gig.

I've been doing the lights for the Channel M music show City Centre Social. There have been a few different bands, and these are the memorable ones.

Sadie Hawkins Dance
They're a bit like evanessence, except that the lead singer has a more rock-y voice.

Jon Gomm
He looks like Eric Clapton and plays an acoustic guitar, and thumps it, and does other weird things to it.

Joff Whitten
He sequences everything, from guitar to bass to vocals. His favourite type of cake would be a layer cake.

Duke Special
Irish folk type band.

Gideon Conn
Weirdo.

So, Matt Berry was plying his trade at the Thekla tonight. The front row was made up of screaming Bristolian Booshites (erm... I mean Boosh-ites) and everyone went mad for One Track Lover. Audiences are twunts sometimes.

It was a strange gig and I'm not entirely sure it worked. Matt Berry is a charismatic performer and a subtle comedy character - swigging 'vodka' from a bottle, acting the soused nightclub singer and berating his backing band with that distinctive bark of his - and disconcertingly sexually attractive but he is the only thing that works in the show's set-up. Take him off the stage you're left with some cheesy seventies pastiche tunes that are clever but not at all cool and couple of punchable, gurning session muscians.

(Speaking of backing bands, as well as accompanying the headliner, Jonas 3 also played as support and oh my fucksy, they're awful. Technically competant and able to finger a fretboard like nobody's business but so lacking in ideas they sound like a fifteenth-rate Red Hot Chili Peppers. Avoid, avoid, avoid.)

The Theme from Snuffbox was a standout - so good they played it twice, in fact - and hearing tracks from AD/BC reminded me just what a clever reworking of the '70s rock opera genre that show was but everything else struggles to stay the right side of tacky.

Go and see him perform, but don't bother buying the CD.

Guests






The last show I saw was the Unholy Alliance Tour with Slayer, Lamb of God, Children of Bodom, Mastodon and Thine Eyes Bleed. that show was awesome to say the least all the bands tore it up, and Slayer busted out some old stuff too..

The wondrous Nanci Griffith at the Jazz Cafe in that London last night.

Twas brilliant. The tiny wee venue gave the gig an intimacy I've always wanted to experience at at one of Nanci's evenings. She didn't disappoint. There were loads of live favourites and a selection from her latest album.

The whole club singing along to John Prine's 'Speed Of The Sound Of Loneliness' was amazing. The hairs on the back of my neck stood up.

Went to the Leadmill to see Tilly and The Wall tonight and it was really rather splendid. Not only were they on form but their support, Slow Club, a last minute replacement for The Little Ones, were utterly sublime. Playing such instruments as bottles of cider and chairs, their folk songs were really quite wonderful, often reminiscent of the best Johnny and June collaborations. Spellbinding stuff.

They sound fascinating. Any links for them? (Slow Club I mean)
