Location: Rallying against Rani's Repetitive Rhubarb and Rubbish.

I saw Theatre Of Tragedy play last weekend.

Good stuff, particularly as I hadn't expected them to play so much of their older stuff from the first three albums.

Support bands Pythia and To-Mera were enjoyable too.

Was going to go to that but was at the 69 Eyes gig on Tuesday and the Emilie Autumn one of Friday and there was stuff on afterwards somewhere else by the time i'd actually got back home I didn't feel like dragging myself back into London again.

saw Akercocke yet again, this time with Dark Funeral, who were pretty good although the sound wasn't all that

although I feel a bit bad bashing the sound, because quite frankly i couldn't set up a band that loud in a tub like the underworld & make it work - so no disrespect to the soundboard crew that night (presumably they are dead & in heaven on account of the stress)

Akercocke were great, but they're always great. It's heavy metal meets post punk with a bit of Dennis Wheatley. Plus suits rule, they just do

I don't have any of their records so can't comment on that, but live they were awesome.

God I bloody love that F#A# album, so so so much. I've gone off just about every album I've always worshipped, but that remains a constant.

I have a Zion album but after a few minutes I wasn't into it, but I will give it another go. Would it make much sense seeing it live without hearing the LP?

flapjackcharlie... dunno if you're still about but godspeed are playing a super rare gig at the troxy soon...


I saw KISS earlier this year Laughing I'm not a HUGE Kiss fan... but I have to say it was fucking amazing in a circus type way! Enjoyed every minute, and when I enjoyed it slightly less, I was engaged by the ridiculousness, etc etc

Seeing Nick Cave side project Grinderman tommorow Shocked Smile

Fuck, yes.

I've just acquired tickets for the Hagen Quartet at the Wigmore Hall on the 30th. What a fucking programme:

Haydn, String Quartet in B Flat, op. 50 no. 1

Schumann, String Quartet in A, op. 41 no. 3

Beethoven, String Quartet in F, op. 135

£12 to hear a band of this quality! Fucking elitist music.



Sadly, I don't think there will be any t-shirts on sale Laughing

I saw Silver Mount Zion about 8 years ago at the Nottingham Rowing Club (which is next to Forest's City Ground on the banks of the Trent). They were shit - the cellist couldn't play.

Yeah I gave it another go... don't get it, I'm afraid. Ditto other Godspeed stuff, to be honest... but F#A# is still a really spooky, engrossing album
