#304

Went to see Martin and Eliza Carthy tonight.
Seen them both loads of times but this was the first time I have seen them play together. (Apart from when they were both in The Imagined Village but that was a much bigger band).


#305

Ryan Adams at the Sage Gateshead tonight.

Temple on the hill with a church in front!


#306

Newcastle at Boiler Shop - October 25th


#307

Where did they get the stupid name from?


#308

Godspeed You! Black Emperor was formed in 1994 in Montreal, Quebec, by Efrim Menuck (guitar), Mike Moya (guitar), and Mauro Pezzente (bass), taking its name from God Speed You! Black Emperor, a 1976 Japanese black-and-white documentary by director Mitsuo Yanagimachi, which follows the exploits of a Japanese biker gang, the Black Emperors.


#309

#310

thethe at the Troxy next June


#311

Thea Gilmore on Thursday night at The Ropetackle in Shoreham.


#312

OK. So Godspeed You! Black Emperor isn’t significantly more strange than the names they started out with (Efrim Menuck has to be an anagram doesn’t it ? Fuck me miner ?).

Canadians, see? Funny lot. @Professor_Chaos


#314

Powerful stuff, no doubt, but can’t understand a feckin’ word !


#315

Looking forward to a night of psych on Thursday headlined by Rancho Relaxo who are playing their first ever UK gig before they head up to Liverpool Psych Fest.


#316

Just in from Stupid Cosmonaut supporting Minami Deutsch at the Soup Kitchen in MCR. Decent gig and all over by 10:15 meaning an easy drive home.


#317

Tomorrow and Saturday is the Liverpool Psyche Festival. I have a house full of loons for the next few days. Fun will be had.


#318

Must try and make it up for the Fest one year. My other half has family that way so it should be easy to arrange.


#319

:+1: It is a decent Festival. Still has a touch of the DIY vibe despite the encroaching commercial vibe. The bands are largely irrelevant as it is a belting weekend out irrespective of who plays.


#320

I went to the Bristol Psyche Fest for the first time this year. The organisers really pushed the boat out with the venue, but it was poorly attended. They must have lost a fair wedge of cash. Keeping these things small probably ensures their survival, as long as no one is looking to get rich.


#321

The Heads have announced they are playing Roadburn next year and will play a gig in Bristol to warm up. My money is on it being at The Exchange and I shall be up the front.
