My street cred is so intact that I had to Google that joke to confirm my suspicions.

The Goat is obviously well into Murs.

I'm extremely proud myself to announce I wouldn't recognise Olly Murs if he walked up to me, shook my hand and said, "Hello I'm Olly Murs"

What is it...that he actually does?

 Annoys people? With his tedious music and "cheeky chappy" presenting. I am getting to an age where some of the new music and people associatedwith it pass me by but unfortunately Olly just got in there before that happened.

Forgot to post it, but saw Richard Hawley at Roundhouse last week.

 

Really cracking show, was a bit disappointed with his latest album. Not that it was bad, I just wanted him to carry on with the more expansive sound of his last album, Standing at the Sky's Edge.

Still, played all the songs I love him for, was on cracking form as usual and led an impeccably observed minutes silence (was remembrance Sunday).

Would recommend.

Went to a gig in Shepherds Bush Empire last night and got patted down by security. 

I was enjoying the show (Brandon Flowers) when I heard arguing. Turned around to find a tiny Scottish woman and my partner arguing. He was saying he was standing with me. Turns out she had taken against him as he was tall. I feel for her I don't see much at concerts as i am short. But I have never taken her action which was to dig him in the ribs and be abusive. He wasn't even in front of her. A 6 foot blonde was in front if her! When I pointed that out to her she told me I should push the tall women out of the way. :-/ Kind of put a damper on night.

 I'd say i get this 7-8/10 I go to.

Yes, I am tallish (6"3). What am I meant to do? I tend to stand pretty near the back. I can't lop half my legs off. If you are small, and stood at the back I don't really think you can complain. 

That said, I'll always trade places with someone who is so small that I'm clearly blocking their way (i can usually see straight over them anyway) if they ask nicely. As opposed to taking that action.

Went to Queen Extravaganza at Pompey Guildhall last Sunday - Outstanding musicians reproducing the sound to a tee.

If you're a Queen fan but don't like a majority of the tribute bands and their cheesiness, these guys are a must see.

This gig was a celebration of the 40 year anniversary of A Night at the Opera. The material was all prior to and up to 1975, and I have to say, includes some of my favourite Queen stuff.

Would gladly pay to go see again.

 Have you seen Queen with Adam Lambert, Mango-B?

Not really my thing, but a good mate went (masssive Queen fan) and said it was amazing. 

 

 I haven't, but, likewise, I have a Queen obsessed mate who has and he rated them pretty highly too.

Off to see Madness at Butlins this weekend - also supported by Craig Charles' funk and soul disco.

Had an all company get together last week (hence why I was so quiet, I'm sure you all missed me loads).

Bananarama were special guests. One of 'em was missing. It was fun, if not slightly tragic.

Saw the Maccabees last week, they are moving up to the next level. They remind me of Arcade Fire a little, with the added depth to their music.

Got Ash on 5th, Fratellis 14th and Charlatans 17th December, all in Newcastle.

Stone Roses, Frank Turner and MUSE for 2016, so far. 

Loving being able to do gigs again. I missed it over the last 5 years. 

Will try and take in Leeds and V Fest this year..... if they can get togeher a half decent line up.

 Love those guys. I reckon they may be one of the bands I have seen live the most times. I struggle to think of many bands that have improved so consistently as they have. Each release, each tour just seems to see them moving up another level.

From seeing them open the Carling Stage at Reading back in '06, a bunch of shy young men, Orlando dressed in a sequin blazer, dancing around in an Ian Curtis style jerking fashion, blasting through their tracks at breakneck speed. To the much more assured, composed and confident band you see today. The sound now is so big, so well considered.

Had a brief chat with a couple of them on occasion too, a really love bunch. Seen them 3 times this year (Coronet, Glasto & Reading) and seeing them again at Brixton in Jan.

Yes they are a band I have seen a few times, but only the 5. I think I saw them at Reading that year, or around that time anyway. Saw the support Kasabian a while back this year as well. They said they were struggling to get the album done, but I think they wanted perfection. 

They are a band I could go and see the next day again, love them. 

Thats enough loving for the Maccabees!!! Well maybe.

Just found out Mini Mansions tour is cancelled lou_sad

It's a shame, was looking forward to seeing them on Friday, but given their links to Queens and therefore Eagles of Death Metal, it's understandable really.

Oh bums. Looks like I bought tickets to see We Are Scientists (December, Engine Rooms) whilst drunk on Friday night. 

Curse you, Southampton Music - and your shiny promotional magazines!

Love We Are Scientists. With Love & Squalor was a cracking album. 

Bumped into Keith Murray on Denmark Street a little while ago. Totally fanboyed.
