Lol auto-correct, is* not isn’t

Anyway aye Iain is a good guy who’s always after help


#782

Ah sweet - I will investigate and feedback! I’ve enjoyed all of the Ultimate Painting albums but never given Mazes a shot.

Yeah Milano is absolutely ace and I think one of the main reasons I keep on returning to it is because it makes me yearn for the YYY’s to make an music similar to something in the vein of Fever To Tell again…


#783

Ores & Minerals <3


#784

I went to the opening night of the tour in Berlin and I was seriously impressed. Love both albums on record but did wonder how they would translate live especially A Savage without the Pedal Steel, female vocals and horns.
It really worked though with the slightly grittier sound and like you said what a brilliant pair of musicians for your back up band! It was so good I’ll be seeing them again tomorrow in London.


#785

are you going to Hookworms on Monday man?


#786

How does that look?


#787

Hadn’t even thought about it, but Thekla are buggers for early shows on the weekend. So probably. Hopefully not too silly, I seem to remember once a headliner was on stage at 7 something.


#788

just the covers would be fine, I think it’s pretty well known that they’ve all been playing together as a group. I knew they were doing it cause jack posted something about it on Instagram. Thank you!


#789

Is that in Berlin? I’m back home in London now


#790

for good or for the weekend?


#791

Yeah for good. I might try and get back out to for a Union game at the end or start of next season. Be nice to experience Berlin in the sunshine


#792

aw damn man what happened? (you can message me that if you like)


#793

anyone going to Jimmy Webb tonight??


#794

Alela Diane at St Pancras Old Church.
Just her, Heather Woods Broderick, piano, keyboards and guitar. It was beautiful - the new songs sounded really strong. She finished unplugged with The Rifle


and Oh Mama

and there wasn’t a sound to be heard apart from her.

#795

It works well for the train back so I’m all for it. Did turn up for JSBX around 8 and they’d already started.


#796

Moon Duo at the Brudenell.
Moon Duo were really good but that new (to me) Community Room is a bit of an atmosphere-free zone.


#797

Ezra Furman at Arts Club, Liverpool

Great show. I haven’t heard the new album, seems he is altering his style somewhat but the new songs sounded great, and the older ones were awesome.
Great band as well, especially the saxophonist


#798

I was at that as well. Really pleased that’s the old band in new clothes - they are amazingly tight. Definite move away from the rock and roll sounds of the last two albums - big fan of the cello and synths.
I hadn’t been to the Arts Club before. What a beautiful venue.


#799

Hot Snakes @ Thekla, Bristol

On Saturday, so inevitably ended up pissed.They were tight as fuck live, lots of sweaty fun had by the crowd too.

Q&A and acoustic set plus pedal steel with Willy Vlautin (Richmond Fontaine) at Howard Assembly Rooms, Leeds.

Such a fantastic raconteur, I could listen to him tell anecdotes and sing stories forever. A great Q&A too in which he really opened up and gave an amusing insight into his writing.
