Bonkers Scandinavian garage. Much fun. (Had to go to Brighton as the London venue is on my shitlist.)

Loved the London gig so much, couldn’t resist schlepping to Brighton for another taste. Poptasticism

In reality, we missed the range of styles and voices. [fin]

The Magnetic Fields “50 Song Memoir” Pt 1 – The Dome (07/09/2017)

When this album was released, I thought I had been waiting years for a Magnetic Fields release where all the songs were sung by Merritt. [fin]

Fucked Up – The Haunt (28 October 2016)

leave a comment »

Promised myself I wouldn’t end the year frantically scribbling something to fill these out. Looks like I was wrong. Maybe the abandoned monthly post thing is a better idea. Although, there’s no-one reads this stuff. It’s just for my reference. Maybe I need to get back on top of it. Let’s see…

Couldn’t be arsed paying to see Fucked Up at a festival in London (even Bat For Lashes didn’t make the price worth it). Of course, nearer the date they announce that ‘extra’ show here. But it was in the execrable Oslo. No way on that. So, I hauled myself to Brighton to see them*.

As usual they were fantastic. I’ve often commented on how are what is ultimately a genre band so much better than others? Tonight I think I begin to pick up on it. It’s the three guitarists ans serious lack of shredding. They lock into a massive almost-motorik toungued-groove wall-off-sound. It’s rather mesmerising.

*Thinking I might have to stop doing this. The current Thameslink improvements moving the level of service back a notch to “downright painful”

Allo Darlin’ – Sticky Mike’s Frog Bar (18 November 2014)

Despite all my best intentions to keep this thing up to date this year, I have failed to do so. However, for my own benefit, I’m adding a placeholder-type post.

VERDICT: They still seem to love playing live. And, so they should. This stuff should be on the NHS. Wunnerful.

VERDICT: Dodgy sound. didn’t dampen the joy of the crowd to see the reformation, though.
