I went to see Romesh Ranganathan least night. He was ok but it was probably one of the poorer comedy his I've seen. A bit disappointing.

Due to my reproductive capability I don't get out much these days so I am inordinately excited about seeing Goldie perform Timeless at Ronnie Scott's in Feb.

My rock and roll week is over. I've spent 3 nights in 5 at the O2. I wonder if they think I am casing the joint.

Rhcp on Monday. The crowd were much more into it this time around (saw them there a few years ago and it was a bit flat). 

Biffy Clyro on Thursday. It was pretty packed down in standing but we had a few seats spare around us which was nice.  I enjoyed watching the mosh pit from afar. Excellent set and they just power through. 

Richard Ashcroft last night. By this time I just needed some rest. Enjoyed it, a few Verve classics to sing along to. I needed a lay in and the bloody postman delivered a parcel at 7.30. 

Next week off to see Frank Turner film Get Better with him doing a solo set and then Bowie's Lazarus followed by Chic the week after getting us ready for Christmas.

One of my favourite bands (The Maccabees) have decided to call it a day after 14 years. But not before one last big payoff. 

I have bagged myself a couple of tickets for one of the Manchester gigs in June 2017. 

It is a shame as I really thought their music was developing to the next level, but they all have solo projects they want to explore. 

 

 

 

 

Shelfish bastards.

It's a week since I went to St Mary's Church in Guildford (Sat 3rd Dec) to see a favourite band of mine, "Sweet Billy Pilgrim". I'd never managed to catch them live before and wasn't disappointed...all in good voice and the church acoustics surprisingly good. I suppose it helped standing next to the guy with the sound mixing tablet...even asked him to bump up the treble a bit to compensate for my age related top-end hearing loss. lou_wink2

This is the view I got standing next to the guy shooting the official video (not online yet)...not my picture however.

Went to see Super Furry Animals last night. They performed Radiator and Fuzzy Logic back to back. It was brilliant. I then danced in a shitty pub for what seems like hours. Missed the last train home and stayed at a friends house, which only encouraged me to get more pissed.

 Love those albums.  Very jealous Fats.

 They played in Bristol a few days ago, Fuzzy Logic in full tour.  Really wanted to go but work and stuff got in the way

Went to see Chic featuring Niles Rodgers last night and the beautiful Hammersmith Apollo for a charity Autismrocks.

I was beyond tired so probably not ideal. He's written quite a few hits hasn't he. I felt quite young in the audience as those in their late teens early twenties when they were at their height made up most of the audience. I witnessed a new phenomenon 60 year olds with tablets recording the whole bloody thing.

Don't lie, Lifer. We know you're older than 60.

 Something a bit smaller! Just use your phone and not a bloody 10 inch tablet.

Saw The Cure at the SSE a few weeks ago - absolutely brilliant!

Also got tickets for Tom Petty and Stevie Nicks in Hyde Park for July

Seen headliner (and sotonian) Sean McGowan a few times. Worth a listen.

Saw McGowan supporting Billy Bragg - an interesting artist.
