Did you guys have the same support acts? The boy and girl combo mentioned it being thier last night with the Knives so I figured you probably did.

Not sure, I arrived too late to see them. I was feeling lazy so set off at the last minute.

I'm always like that when I go to a gig on my own. If I'm going with other people I'll always see the support. On my own I prefer to be in and out (so to speak).

Being a celebirty has changed my life though. I was selling fanzines on Saturday and someone came up and said they were disappointed that I hadn't made it into the Guardian again. I'm breaking hearts without even realising it.

The Tea and Coffee making facilities left a lot to be desired.

BLOC PARTY - PLYMOUTH PAVILLIONS

To begin with i really disliked Bloc Party. No real reason. Perhaps it was because they were a hyped NME band and i'd heard one song and didn't like it. I now know that song is called 'Banquet'. I still don't like it.

The main reason for going was to see Biffy Clyro supporting as their own tour goes nowhere near the south west. They blitzed through three new songs to open with. They were loud, quiet, loud and didn't say a word. Anything else would've been a disapointment. They closed with 'Glitter And Trauma'. A mutual respect covered the hall.

So, thanks to ebay, we are here at a discounted price to see a band we only vaguely know the songs of (and that's thanks to the albums' bargain bin status - not a great sign is it?)

But you know what? I enjoyed it. Any band who don't suffer from following Biffy demand my immediate respect. Songs, that on record don't lift enough, came alive. These boys have actually got really good riffs and solos. Who'd have thunk it? In other words they can actually make a hell of a noise. I wasn't expecting that. The sound, in what is a tricky venue to get it right, was spot on.

Sadly, they know how to make interesting grooves and beats so it's all the more frustrating that the backbone of the songs (i.e the main tune) are very samey. The noise they make deserve better songs. Still, it was a good gig because i didn't even mind drinking piss weak Carling, the only beer availabe. For that alone it gets 7/10 and a sincere pat on the back.

I went to the free Ash gig at Virgin Megastore on wednesday.... Though they only played for half an hour... it was still awesome... The highlight for me being an extended improvised-sounding middle section of Kung-Fu.
Also, the new stuff they played sounded great... Still not hooked on the new single, but it's good to hear there are so many better songs on their forthcoming album.

Well HAH! In your face because I saw him play in Brizzle last weekend and it was lovely. Admittedly, not the best gig I've ever been to (hate the hateful, soulless Colston Hall) but the encore was spectacular. It's not every day you get to see a 33 year old Canadian man belting out Judy Garland songs while dressed up as the lady herself.

I saw Shihad last night - awesome. One of my favourite live bands, and they didn't disappoint. Even got to sleep in this morning (because I asked for the morning off. Forward planning - wonderful)

I saw Muse last night, and despite having seen them live back in 2004, I still wasn't prepared for just how mind blowing they are live. Easily the best gig I've ever been to. Here are some piccies:





At one point they actually released 2 huge plastic balls onto the crowd with acrobats hanging from them! Was stunningly beautiful.
