Finally uploaded the Guillemots pictures and here are some of my favourites.




This one is my favourite. I liked the links to the red album cover with all the red rope lights everywhere.





Out comes the Encore Bell.

Rush, woooooooooooo!

My ears are still ringing, even though I wore plugs for the majority of the show.

Agreed. I was quite surprised as I hadn't been able to make up my mind when I'd seen her in photos but in the flesh she is quite a hottie.

On the way out of the venue after seeing Shihad last night, I felt like I was going to pass out. Too much indulgence + too much jumping = happy + dizzy + feel like a vomit. But I didn't faint or vom, which is a relief.

Les Cowboys Fringants! Was awesomness! Met the most coolest woman, but alas I did not ask for her number. Still, wicked fun.

Meltdown Festival: Yellow Magic Orchestra, Royal Festival Hall

Their first UK gig since 1980 (so a tad momentus). Support band were Pivot from Australia who absolutely blew me away. Awesome mostly instrumental noisy electronic moody crazy stuff. They're playing Glastonbury as well, so I will definitely see them again then.

But then, it was YMO's turn on stage and they turned in a great performance. While the sound quality was not always great, they played a wide range of material from their early days, through some of their solo work, to a selection from their most recent projects. Some lovely visuals and interesting interpretations of their classics too. A couple of encores saw them finish with the wonderful 'Cue', and got them a couple of standing ovations too. Marvellous.

Meltdown Festival: Vangelis' Blade Runner Soundtrack, Performed by The Heritage Orchestra, Live Mixing by Massive Attack, Royal Festival Hall

A one-off spectacular for any Blade Runner fan, it was absolutely beautiful hearing and seeing one of the best film scores of all time captured live in an orchestral performance. Running through the whole tracklist of the soundtrack as it appears on the official album, it was wonderful how the musicians all came to interpret what is quite a synth-led score. A surprising, but perhaps not unexpected, addition was One More Kiss, Dear, which provided a welcome break from the general moodiness, with Elbow's Guy Garvey on vocals. While perhaps the other guest vocalists were not as up to scratch, it was nice that Tears in Rain came without dialogue - either you get Rutger Hauer to do it, or not at all. Fabulous lighting through blinds, which later streamed LCD dots and numbers, and haze effects, coupled with surrounding noise from the sound systems of rain, police backchatter and the hum of future LA added to the atmosphere. Come the penultimate rendition of the main theme, the response from the audience was enthusiastic to say the least. Brilliant.

My Bloody Valentine


Their first official gig in years, and you wouldn't even know; every song was just as you would imagine, the sound was great, and they made 15 minutes of perfectly orchestrated white noise.

Mindblowing. And also too loud even for earplugs, just the way I like it!

I'd love to see them again. They were good, but when the dates were announced I couldn't be arsed with getting a ticket. My loss I guess.

Though when I did see them they were supported by Blur, Dinosaur Jr and Jesus & Mary Chain. It's bound to be an anti-climax after that.
