  1. Tour Announcements & Upcoming Gigs

  2. 2017 New Music Thread

    Think Fantano's got Alt-Right accusations stuck in his ears, giving King Krule a 4/10 and St. Vincent a 6/10 aint cool, both deserve much better. I know it's just his opinion, right.

    Interesting, the Thor: Ragnarok reviews are also embargoed till tomorrow, coincidence? Yeah I imagine so... I might have stretched the definition of interesting there as well...
  4. Nick Cave

    Changed my stance on gig phone photography recently, was well against it whereas now, although I don't take them, it's all our gig who am I to tell others what to do. Well Nick and the lads love them and want people's sent in, I rate this is a really cool thing to do, a better stance than the short lived 'take peoples phone off them' stance http://www.nickcave.com/news/nick-cave-bad-seeds-live-photos/

    Never rated King Krule but some of the praise here convinced me to give it a go yesterday, haven't stopped listening to it since (besides briefly giving A. Savages a go, also great). Basically what FloorFiller said.

    Aye, there's a venue in London that's become DICE only, it's the next logical solution. https://www.engadget.com/2017/09/20/dice-digital-tickets-touts/

    Pity Demon Happy's latest stuff is rubbish. Although they were pretty unimpressed woth mine and my mates pitting at their Gullivers gig. As was a reviewer. Think I'll be round the corner at the salisbury while they're on.

    I have tickets for the night after, I'd rather be doing it your way round ahah.

    tough one to call, it's hard to know how things are gonna go down in the future but yeah I think so, to further that I think To Pimp A Butterfly will generally be heralded as the greatest Hip-Hop album this side of the century. There's also that acts like Outkast are rising into being Legends only 10 years later. It's hard coz hip-hop was still so young as a genre in the 90s it set a lot of rules so people are obviously gonna look there, like The Beatles for rock (I've really simplified that, don't have a go at me ahah). Hip-Hop has overtaken rock in terms of popularity these days, it's culturally more important than ever but with popularity your gonna get a lot of weaker stuff alongside it. It's the weekend so I'm quite excitable, I may have gone a bit far with some of my points there ahah, not gonna read it back though as I have to go and get drunk and see some Lapalux guy, peace

    It's changed but it hasn't diminished or died, there's still solid gold coming out. In 20 years, people will hold Kendrick up next to 2Pac and Biggie.

    Correct Incorrect.

    I listened to it a couple of times this morning and liked it, similar to A Better Tomorrow though I can see it falling away over time.
  13. Tour Announcements & Upcoming Gigs

    Aye I missed out as well, there's normally a few floating about on the day via twickets or the facebook event page. I'd love to see the stats from actual venues about how many tickets aren't scanned in in the end, surely not all the stupidly expensive tickets sell? I know there's some panic buys from some people but I wonder how many tickets are just wasted in the end. Anyone have any victories getting them outside as the bands starting? Fair play to people like Sacha finding and outing touts
  14. King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard

    You're looking at basically a fiver a pint of average-at-best lager. The ale cans are also a fiver. It'd be alright if you could leave for a little bit, the abercromby's only across the way (even if it is a red pub). Alas...
  15. King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard

    Yeah that's a point. I'm usually pretty cautious with ticket prices but paying 80 for a sitting Kendrick ticket has skewed things for a little bit at least. Was happy to pay 50 for a streets ticket if I could have got one. I'd happily pay a tenner for each of the 3 bands before Oh Sees though, tried to with Flat Worms in fact but it's sold out. (I know that festival style logic is flawed coz you're paying for the event as much as much as the band but I've gone with it ahah.) Gonna be a hell of a night either way, I'm personally happy to pay up for it. Just gotta save the pennies to drink for 4 bands worth in Albert Hall now...
