    Arcade Fire, Hyde Park: 7/10
    Love the band, hated the sound system and the location. Was the whitest crowd I've ever seen.

    Motörhead, Hallenstadion Zurich: in true eg manner a 8/10
    The old boys still got it.

    Excellent choice of songs with old classics and two or three newer songs, the opener was Damage Case. The sound was good and not very loud. Everything louder than everything else? Not really this time. The trio didn't really seem to have a lot of fun though. And the concert was a bit short.

    Special guest were The Vibes, a local band from Aarau. They enjoyed themselves but were nothing to write home about (5/10, the shit sound quality didn't help).

    I'd like to see the Foos. I don't love them, but seeing them in a small environment would be great.

    Last gig I saw was a load of people at Truck Festival. Highlight was Maybeshewill. They were brilliant.

    Went to see Ash play free all angels tonight. It was quite obviously the tits. I'm still sore from moshing. They also played a hits set, and ended with Kung Fu. Sadly no jack names the planets. Also, charlotte's legs, nom.

    Laura Marling @ York Minster. Something quite special.

    Bon Iver at Hammersmith Apollo.

    Best live act I have seen in ages, amazingly tight band, and moments where you could hear a pin drop.

    Imelda May, O2 Sheffield, last night.


    Not quite the 11 out of 10 from the Glastonbury performance, but still utterly phenomenal.

    DJ Shadow (Birmingham Institute) 8/10

    A good mix of old & new, the same great skills, and he's such a nice guy.

    The visuals he has with the dome & projections are outstanding. Excellent show, had me dancing even though I was completely sober. Bass damn near made me shit myself.

    The Doors Alive (Manchester Academy) - 9.9999/10

    What can I say. Some of the best songs ever written and the frontman looks, sounds and acts like Jim Morrison. Got the whole later years beard thing going on. He had the attitude too, which took it to another level.

    Massive punch-up in front of us kind of spoiled it a tiny bit. They were soon dealt with though and no, the band didn't play on.

    This was a last minute thing that I was a bit reluctant to go to. So pleased I did. Most highly recommended.

    Can I count a musical as a gig?

    Book of Mormon - 8/10

    Brilliant stuff from the South park folks, although it seems to be less clever than it thinks. Probably because you can see a lot of cross-over between this and that one South Park episode about Mormons.

    That said, some great musical numbers, loads of belly laughs and the performances were outstanding. If you can get tix for the West End (it's coming there next year, I think), go for it!

    Mariachi El Bronx in Cardiff. Ace. They've really grown into it, considering it was just a fun joke by a hardcore punk band. 4 years and 2 albums on...

    Shame about the absolute cunts talking their way through the support act, though. Surplus.

    9/10 (point off for no hardcore)

    Leatherface, the Croft Bristol.


    Sunderland's finest in a tiny room. 20 years of melodic hardcore that influenced your favourite punk bands, sung by a gruff old man with a beard. Dickie on great form, Stubbs even better. Laughs with the band after.

    Highlights were Leningrad Vlad and a very emotional Not A Day Goes By.

    Los Van Van Van (Leeds 02) - - 3/10

    More to do with my mood as opposed to the Cuban band themselves. They were superb but I ended up having a shitty night.

    Rush (Dublin O2, May of last year!)

    Finally got to see them live, was not disappointed! No support meant they played for nearly 3.5 hours, played a bit of something form most of their albums, including 'Moving Pictures' in its entirety. The two newies sounded as fresh and exciting as anything they've done before too.

    I normally prefer small, dingy club gigs, but this could be the best gig i've ever witnessed.

    Django Django - Deaf Institute Manchester

    Had barely heard any of their stuff but it came across well. Elements of hot chip, wavves, battles in there. The reception suggests they are on the way to something bigger.

    Mark Lanegan Band @ Bristol Academy on Sunday night.

    The usual brilliant but not visually stunning performance from Mark. Stuff off the new album fits in really well with back catalogue songs and his new band are exceptional. Good support act (Creature With the Atom Brain), made up of his road crew, too.

    Ace night. Good live recording on sale at merch stand, too. Win.

    Destroying The Faith tour, Manchester Academy
    Job For A Cowboy - No Idea / 10, didn't turn up to see them 'cos I don't like em. Was in the pub.

    Enslaved 8/10 - Cracking set. They played a cover of Immigrant song :D

    Triptykon 7/10 - Thinsulate Hat + Eyeliner on old guy = looks like your eyes have exploded on stage and leaked down your face. Great set, though. Couldn't work out if lass on bass was a lass or just Japanesey.

    Cannibal Corpse 6/10 - Great set, but the sound in the venue went from mediocre to shite between Triptykon and Cannibal; all you could hear was fecking snare.
  • Deleted user 12 March 2012 15:52:25
    Not really a gig as such but felt like one, Rock of Ages the musical.

    Was bloody brilliant cracking set of 80s songs performed really well.

    Cerebral Bore/Sadist/Blood Red Throne/Cattle Decapitation/Suffocation

    9/10 every band was really good, Cattle Decap were probably one of the most intense death metal bands I've ever seen, just incredible.

    and Suffocation, even without Frank Mullen there to do his Jazz hands they still absolutely smashed faces.

    Need a good day of absolute silence now though!

    @Warlock, you Job For a Cowboy hate is funny, they are a plain as day death metal band, they don't even have breakdowns!

    and the bassist is a lass, she is hot. check my BOA photos on FB.

    Tussk @ The sugarmill, Stoke, 10/03/12.

    They're have a deep south America vibe, bass heavy with a mix of melodic and screamy vocals, influences from everytime I die etc. Band were really professional and tight, even if the sound was a bit shit due to the engineer being terrible at the club.

    Florence and the Machine at the MEN Arena Manchester - 4/10

    Here's why. Firstly the good. Her voice is outstanding, the sets were really well done and they looked like they hired Ridley Scott to do the lighting. I like most of her songs too. There was a camera which zoomed into her real close which revealed...

    ..she looked bored shitless and totally disinterested. It could have been fatigue. It could have been she was trying to do the moody, distant thing. But she didn't seem to be having any fun. She did sparkle a bit when she was chatting to the crowd.

    I know it's wrong to compare but I saw her years ago just before the first album came out. She was cheerful, having fun etc.

    Also, the Horrors were shit.

    White Hills - 10/10

    Fucking awesome wall of wailing guitar for an hour and a half. Forgot my earplugs and I'm kinda deaf now. I believe they're hitting the UK tonight.

    Florence and the Machine - Newcastle

    The last date on her UK tour. She seemed in better spirits than at Beast master's show. I would echo his comments. Great voice, good songs, good production and stage. The gig was spoiled for us though by just being too far away. It was just as well they had the video feed projecting her larger image at the side or else it would have been totally pointless. The metroradio arena is a shithole and I am never going there again unless I get some closer seats along the side. I like her but am not passionate about her and therefore I found it difficult to be passionate about the show.
