The Rolling Stones in Munich on Tuesday. I reasoned that I have to see them at some stage and they're not getting any younger. :D

Starting to look at the listings for the next few months after being away for 3 out of the last 4 weeks.
Bo Ningen next Sun. at Broadcast - I definitely want to catch them this time around as it's been too long since I last saw them.
Then decisions to make with JAMC, Shellac, Black Angels, GYBE, !!! and a few more. Looks like Dinosaur Jr + Spinning Coin in Dec. may be sold out already unfortunately.

Managed to get a ticket for the Royal Albert Hall comeback show of TheThe and a couple for the following night in Brixton.

Can't believe there's been no comment about this on the forum so far... I know there are more TheThe fans than just me on here!

Anyway, it's all very exciting and I personally can't wait to see him/them again :)

I take it that this means you have a plan that requires a healthy deposit in the bank of good behaviour. :D I'll see you on Friday anyway.

Has anyone seen The Black Angels on their current tour? I've a ticket to see them tomorrow night in London but am struggling to be enthusiastic about it due to being a bit run down and massively knackered all his week plus the fact my partner has pulled out for a similar reason.

Have tickets to see them (Black Angels) on Monday night which were given to me by my brother who decided he didn't fancy it. I have several friends all of who are the same... not sure if its just due to the glut of gigs we appear to have had over recent months or whether enthusiasm for the band is waning a little.

Still keen to see them live again, but... :? :? :?

I've only seen them once before, years back at the ULU in London and was left wanting something more from them, can recall being disappointed. Love the Passover album the most and Phosgene Nightmare too. Deciding not to go tonight as I really can't be bothered going after this long slog of a week, especially without my partner for company, feeling a general malaise, plus I'm just not chomping at the bit to see them for some reason. It'll probably be a blinder and then I'll feel gutted, c'est la vie.

I too have only seen them once before and they were pretty good. Was on the Indigo Meadow tour and, although the album didn't win me over, their live show was still enjoyable. Their latest album is a bit better to my ears, so fingers crossed for a good show.
I was initially planning on going along with my wife, brother and some friends, but then most pulled out so my wife and i decided to go ourselves. My wife then offered up her ticket to another friend as he is a big fan (but a bit skint) but he's then come down with heavy man-flu and pulled out so my better half decided she come along after all... only for her to subsequently come down with a heavy cold and spent all day in bed yesterday ill! I think this gig may be jinxed :lol:

Will see which way the rain is falling later... yes, its also pissing down here, making the thought of trailing back out even more of a chore! Might just settle for taking the car, arrive later and head straight home afterwards.

Saw them on Saturday night, and quite enjoyed it as far it went, sound was a great garage stomp, fantastic light show has to said, good start, mid set lull and rallied round to a good finish, I never saw them myself but heard various reports from trusted sources that support act A Place To Bury Strangers were on fire as well if that helps make your mind up any, couldn`t help thinking though they are a bit ... psyche for adolescent girls with some Austin Powers thrown in?? I realize that sounds a bit harsh/unfair and it is because they are really good at what they good, should be a good night I would say and if I had access to my car tonight I might have went again tonight seeing as I`m on holiday till Friday, I`m sure you`ll enjoy it if you go.

Have decided to head along as the sun has came out. Never heard Place To Bury Strangers before... stuff i've seen online sounds interesting enough, so we'll see how tonight unfolds.

Enjoy your weekend then Gary? :D

A Place to Bury Strangers

Postby olan » Tue Sep 26, 2017 7:59 am

A Place to Bury Strangers were quite impressive at LPF. The physical assault their drummer inflicted on her kit was really impressive. She really did manage to generate a ferocious tribal stomp thing. The bass was a lovely fuzzy mess that provided both rhythm and what little melody they produce. As for the lead guitarist, the guitar solo in the second tune involved chucking the guitar about 15 foot in the air and then booting it across the stage as it landed :D . He finished playing the 'tune' on a guitar that was absolutely knackered. A second guitar was chucked about but not destroyed later in the set, which finished with the guitarist in the crowd. There was no attempt to use the impressive lighting equipment available, they just pumped out loads of smoke and turned the strobes on a lot :shock: .In short, no marks for subtlety, but plenty of points for generating a ferocious racket and generally not giving a fuck.

There is just not enough not giving a fuck going on with music at the moment. The LPF was a good example of this. Really enjoyable weekend out, lovely to meet all the usual suspects, but musically just not very interesting a lot of the time. LPF seems to be slowly morphing into a care in the community event for the middle-aged noise fan :wink: except there wan't much noise.

See you all next year or in Brighton after Xmas.

Really good Black Angels show last night in Glasgow. Downstairs @ SWG3 venue (first time for me) - decent size and good sound. LOTS of drunken arseholes unfortunately, however, managed to avoid them for most of the show but watched one guy almost get two kickings for his behaviour and inability to not be a dick! :lol: :lol: Youngsters these days!

A Place To Bury Strangers know how to leave their mark. They came on and instantly dropped into possibly one of the heaviest openers i've heard in a very long time. Like the love child of early Loop and Swervedriver and i can't recall EVER seeing a drummer (female or otherwise) pound the skins to fast or so hard in a very long time. She was just incredible. I need to find out the name of that first song - any fans able to shed some light? The bass player was intent of wrecking his bass, hurtling it about with abandon at amps and off the floor while the guitarist just made as much noise as possible - all in a very noisey but melodic manner may i add! To close out their set the bass player jumped into the crowd and wandered behind us... as the stage decended into darkness, we were considering heading for a pint and turned round only to find the bass player behind us with what appeared to be the guitarist with a mobile disco which he promptly started blasting our some electro beats while the bass player started laying down some heavy, thick bass runs. Was a bloody revelation and i couldn't help but smile! The intense strobes and smoke machine were bordering on harmful, but, y'know, its all rock'n'roll! 8) 8) 8)

The Black Angels had bigged up their light show for this tour and it was definitely one of the best i have seen in recent years - lost of cool swirly lights and projections. Their set was solid and featured a good cross-section of their back catalogue. The new album songs came across really well live (which i really hoped), Comanche Moon and Medicine being two of the highlights for me. I recall seeing someone say there was a wee bit of a lull in the middle of their set, and there seemed to be the same last night; just seemed to drop the pace/intensity a little in that middle point, but they did pull it back together and close out the show strongly.

Glad i dragged myself along to the show in the end. Wasn't the best gig of the year, but was a joy to see A Place To Bury Strangers and a solid Black Angels set.

Agree with all of the above. A Place To Bury Strangers were one of the highlights of the psych fest. they were not subtle (aside from the little interlude the drummer sang) and possibly a bit gimmicky but they really made their mark. intense strobes, lots of noise, great stuff.
The Black Angels were tight enough but didn't seem to have the ferocity that they need, and a lot of this was down to the weedy sound. I think I enjoyed their set better than many in our group though. some songs (The Sniper at the Gates of Heaven, Bloodhound on My Trail) came across well.

They are both playing Birmingham tonight- and part of me feels like going. to see APTBS again (in a tiny venue no less!) and the possibility of The Black Angels with better sound.

Didn't see APTBS so cannot comment. Agree with Olan the line up was quite ordinary but its more of a social thing these days and great to catch up with some good people who I can happily called friends. Thanks always as ever to Olan for his hospitality. We are all of the opinion this festival may not happen next year, just seemed quieter and a lot of streamlining of facilities had gone on. Food outlets 50% down, beer running out and not being replaced on day 2, and the line up was division 2 at best in some cases. That said was nice just not be at work or home !
Acts I enjoyed were Is Bliss( shoegazey type early 90's), Proper Ornaments (a heavier teenage fanclub), Telescopes ( i think i liked it), Loop (very loud and very good), Zoff (outstanding), Black Angels (solid, weedy sound), Wolf people (great prog Psych jams), Endless Boogie (2 tunes 1 hr, job done), Julia's Haircut (cant pin this down but enjoyable). Maybe there was more I cant recall

after recovering from the psych fest now looking at listings for the rest of the year as it's looking a bit bare (only Godspeed and Ride in the diary at the moment)

I am pretty sure I'll do Acid Mothers Temple as can never really resist them.

There's also My Vitriol & Trail of Dead as they have announced a Coventry show. However Trail of Dead appear to be advertised as a 3 piece only which could be a bit underwhelming. also I try not to go to Coventry if I can help it (at least without a stab vest! :wink: )

I think the approach might be quality over quantity for the remainder of 2017.

2 nights of Spiritualized in a little over a week! It has been a while since the horrible show at the 2015 Austin Psych Fest (Levitation). I've been able to block it out of my memory, or at least tried hard. Eagerly waiting for them to reclaim my fanboydom.

I wonder if the winery show will be cancelled due to the wildfires.

Gundlach Bundschu Winery (2000 Denmark St., Sonoma): The winery suffered some damage, but the extent is currently unknown. A Facebook message posted on Tuesday morning: “Still fighting the good fight. Thank you so much for your concerns and well wishes. Gundlach Bundschu Winery is still standing strong. More information to come.” :shock:

I'm sure you already read that there is a massive bush fire in Northern California, probably one of the largest in the state's history. Already 20+ have been killed, 2000+ buildings destroyed. I didn't even mention homes of which I don't know ? Already they are estimating $ 50 billion dollars lost in property or something like that. Hope Sandoval & the Warm Inventions were playing at the Gundlach Bundschu Winery ( 2nd oldest family run winery in the state ) this past Sunday evening when the fires broke out. Jason was supposed to play there too next week (Oct. 16 ) in the Red Barn, a 100 year old red barn with a capacity of 500 people. That would have been a great site to see the Spaceman. Because of the fires and state of turmoil at the winery, the Spiritualized show has been moved to San Rafael at the Terrapin Crossroads - a musical venue founded by Phil Lesh of the Grateful Dead. It certainly makes it a lot easier and closer for me to travel to San Rafael than Sonoma.

The next night (Oct. 17) Spiritualized will be playing at the Fillmore Theatre in San Francisco.
