    Gig Ticket Prices

    If that's true then it's horrendous. £90 and some of those people won't even be in the same postcode as the stage.
  2. Pom Poko are back in a few months. Genuinely one of the best live bands out there. I'll be at the Wedgewood Rooms gig.

    Yeah, it's great. Some brilliant electronic albums this year, the Joy Orbison one is rarely off my turntable at the moment.
  4. Sprints and Deadletter tonight. Both great fun. Was very impressed by Deadletter and can see them playing some decent sized gigs in the next year or so. One of the best things about post lockdown gigs is the high quality of support acts that are being booked. Bands are travelling all over for a few of support dates just so they can play shows again. It really is a great time for fans of live music.
  5. Ty Segall and Meatbodies are both in Europe at GM time. Yes please to both of them with bells on. Ty Segall was a cancelled 2020 booking so would make sense if he was booked for 2022.
  6. Must just be me that finds Self Esteem a bit meh? Talk of her headlining seems a bit far fetched to me with the fact the oversees bands will be back.

    The vinyl turned up today, listening to it now. Really loving Farmhands.
  8. Wow. That's absolutely staggering!
  9. I'm more shocked that people will pay £90 to see a gig. When did that become acceptable? It's just so wrong on every level.
  10. If you don't have a cowbell and a trumpet these days then you might as well not bother to be honest!

    Just listen to 6music, she's on there every half an hour.
  12. Camp Bestival is a bit pants to be honest. Went to the first few and then it got inhabited by sharp elbowed Islington types blocking off swathes of room with the trolleys they drag their precious Tarquin's around in while wearing Boden. Not for me.
  13. Glad you enjoyed it. I've not been as excited about a band third on the bill since I saw a gig where Fontaines supported HMLTD and Shame. I really think Keg will be one of the bands every half decent festival will be clamouring to book next summer.

    Fair point. I'm still judging releases by when they appear in a physical format. I don't use Spotify so have only heard the few tracks on bandcamp.

    Oh my word the Pigsx7 and Lovely Eggs cover of Hot Stuff is incredible. https://pigspigspigspigspigspigspigs.bandcamp.com/track/hot-stuff-feat-the-lovely-eggs
