    @Pepsipop I don't know what to make of them. I saw 'freak like me' sung by a tall blonde girl who doesn't appear freakish in the least, with iffy lyrics. But a few peeps seem to like them.

    Sigur Ros - Manchester Apollo
    Didn't really know any of their stuff before going. A fascinating light/effect show for the first half hour, some utterly mesmerising performances, slightly marred by being a bit overly long, with an encore that dragged 20 minutes longer than was warranted. 8.

    Duke Special - Barnsley Civic
    Solo tour, with song books and anecdotes aplenty. Rather lovely performance, culminating in everyone going to the front to circle the piano for a singalong. He called me intimidating. Make of that what you will. 9.

    Well I found them live to be amazing. Album wise hit and miss as got it day after gig, around five brilliant tracks and the rest too pop rock for me.
    She has got one hell of a voice.

    Martin Harley Band. Brudenell Social Club.

    If they're playing anywhere near you (I think they're in Newcastle Saturday and Manc Sunday) then I can't recommend them enough. Lap slides are sexy.

    Ryan Adams supported by Beth Orton at the Royal Albert Hall on Tuesday.

    It was the opening night of a week in support of Teenage Cancer Trust, Noel Gallagher even popped up for a chat which was a surprise. Nice to see Beth Orton back, although clearly suffering from a cold!

    Adams was on a different level to anyone I've ever seen. Supported by a 'super group' of major players, his best song was O' Sweet Carolina as an acoustic solo surprisingly but wow! He was just incredible and I can't put into words how moved, amused, entertained and in awe I was.

    Oh, and a special shout out for his new song 'Loaf of bread' sang improv after he misheard someone in the croud. He's always been a cut above talent wise, but he's finally 'grown up' and developed a sense of humour too.

    I'm jealous, I went to Paris to see him last year and hate myself for missing him previously. He's utterly incredible as a songwriter and live performer.

    Saw Grimes this week at a relatively small venue (300 peeps in a warehouse). She was a really interesting performer, but her support act was a fucked up crazy hippy nutjob. And not in a good way.

    For someone whose genre was once described as Witch House, there was a depressing lack of broomsticks and black cats. Other than that it was awesome though.

    6/10, would've been more for a longer set and less crazy sidekick.

    He was unbelievable. And when his harmonica was out of tune, rather than take a huff, he made a joke. Mandy Moore has obviously been very good for him :lol:

    Yeah, I read a review of it, sounded great.
    I only saw him solo which was superb but I'd love to see him with a band and doing more electric stuff.

    Saw Eels at Rock City in Nottingham last night. Just an amazing, amazing set. So many of their best, and all my favourites from their new album. Tight performance in a quality atmosphere, surrounded by die hard fans of all ages.

    It was an almost spiritual gig for me. I've loved the group since buying Beautiful Freak back on release in 1996, but have never seen them perform live before last night. Totally worth the four hour round trip and today's fatigue :D

    Nicole Atkins, the support act, was also well worth the early arrival.

    Why look, it's a blog:

    Just came back from seeing Kim Wilde at the Grand Casino in Basel.

    I didn't know what to expect after leaving Kim Wilde in my early teen-age to become a metalhead. I'm happy to report that all seven members of the band (including Ms Wilde) really seemed to enjoy themselves. I was pleasently surprised by both the show and the friendly attitude of the whole band. The gig lasted 105 minutes.
    A great show, especially if you were teenager in the 80s. Hearing "You keep me hanging on" live alone accounts for 11 points.

    A clear 12/10

    Roger Waters - The Wall

    Manchester, last night.
    Great show and the digital wall really helps tell the story. Not a big Floyd fan myself (went for the missus), but still enjoyed it.

    Can't believe he's 70!

    9/10

    Chvrches - 6/10

    Went to the gig with a few mates not knowing what to expect. Their musical tastes are more White Lies and Editors so thought it would be more of the same. Not to be...

    There were lots of purdy, bright, flashing lights and they sang some pleasant pop ditties.

    The Resident Evil films. I'm one of the reasons they keep making them.

    Deap Valley at Club Academy in Manchester - 10/10

    This gig had the lot. Terrific support bands, crowd surfing by the lead singer, full on moshing, a fist fight and two scorching hot rock chicks who really know how to rock!

    The Resident Evil films. I'm one of the reasons they keep making them.

    K. Chase and fucking Status!!! 7/10

    Sat at cardiff central atm a bit pissed and waiting for the last train....to somewhere..

    K. It was a playlist. There was nothing unique about the music played.

    Netsky was supporting act before and to be fair they fucking rocked.

    Chase and status felt formulaic but they played the best choons and saved Sweet Sensation unitl the last track (before encore)

    What took the roof off thougfh was when they did Rage Against The Machine - Killing in the name of, followed by Fool Yourself. (As the encore)

    Really good but felt a lil let down by the lack of soul. No Problem fucking rocked though too.

    Blind Faith not sweet sensation....u know what I mean....loads of old skool crew there too (and I mean old skool from 20 years ago)!

    Warpaint

    9/10

    I previously saw them at a big festival in Barcelona a few years ago and tonight got to see them in a small venue and they were brilliant, they sounded utterly superb with those gorgeous guitars, massive bass and beautiful harmonies.

    Additionally, I'd walk 10km on my knees over broken glass to get the merest sniff of the gusset of the lead singer (the skinny one).

    Not sure he'd approve of that.

    Sitting in the Cambridge corn exchange waiting for Steel Panther. Should be awesome.

    Update:

    Support act are on. 'The Cringe'

    They're rather enjoyable. I'll be tracking down their album.
