Troxy gig next year… don’t know how but never been there… what’s it like, for seeing someone like them?


#82

Never been to the Troxy either but this looks pretty special. Just got a pair of standing tickets via Stargreen,

Didn’t realise oh sees had become so big - Troxy is 2.6k capacity, and £30 a ticket. Can’t have been much more than a tenner when i last saw them at a gig (rather than a festival) in a half full brudenell. Still very tempted though, particularlrly as it looks like a castle face showcase.

I think the 5 band line up is reflected in that ticket price. Last couple of London gigs have been the Coronet and the Kentish Town Forum. Coronet was £20, with a great 3 band line up, a high water mark gig for me, venue holds 2600 too. Booking a pair for this Troxy gig cost me £67 inc fees, which made me gulp a bit. I just hope their headline set isn’t a shorter one because of all the other bands beforehand.

Manchester tickets are on Dice. Wish the London ones were as well.

Liam Gallagher reviews The Static God :smiley:

New mail order only 12" available https://castlefacerecords.co.uk/products/oh-sees-dead-medic-12 Only about 500 pressed I think. Just grabbed an electric blue version, whilst shutting my eyes to the reality of the overall cost.

Got to shipping method and shit out :unamused:


#90

Castle Face’s tax and postage costs really do suck, can’t see how they justify it…but excitement took a hold of my wallet and here I am, awaiting an expensive jam, possibly on a one sided 12".


#91

I’ll check back on availability after I’ve been paid for some more will I won’t I action.


#92

The American site always looks dirt cheap, but with obviously massive UK shipping costs. $5 for most of the older CDs. Europe site not so much.


#93

Yeah same, not ideal for this time of year :frowning:

Gutted, always up for more (Thee) Oh Sees odds & ends.


#94

Things is, when ordering from the EU site the records ship from Monmouth, but at 10 Euros plus 3 Euros tax. I don’t get why it’s so pricey. I normally skip the Castle Face editions and buy the UK colour presses from an indie-store instead, but this one is only available from them direct. It better be worth it.


#95

Ahh I assumed they were shipping from mainland Europe somewhere! Weird.


#96

Weird indeed. Last couple of records I had from them a while back were post stamped Monmouth. Postage should only be about £4.50 max

Nice interview with John Dwyer in Marc Maron’s WTF podcast:


#98

Marc Riley played an Oh Sees song last night, and I missed the name. When it first came on I thought it was Mastodon. Any ideas?


#99

Animated Violence? Admittedly don’t know Mastodon very well but that’s probably the most metal Oh Sees song.

That’s the one! Thanks,.
