    Just back from Blackberry Smoke, a fine evening of Country Rock and a few beers made for a very enjoyable Tuesday. And they made Southampton Guildhall sound not shit, which is a minor miracle.

    9/10, easy.

    Which reminds me, I saw the Sleaford Mods last month.
    Really enjoyed it, despite my fears of getting ranted at for an hour or two wearing thin. New stuff mixed up with old stuff in a way which meant there was enough songs with a groove between the more abrasive rant-y stuff.

    Enjoyably shouty/10

    At the weekend I went with the oldies to see Miller Anderson (and band) at Hurtwood polo club in Surrey. Miller Anderson was singer and guitarist in the Keef Hartley Band who played at Woodstock '69. He must be one of the last living Brits to have played at Woodstock along with Daltrey and Townshend. It was good stuff, not a lot of people there (around 30 I reckon), very civil (everyone sat at tables) but some seriously good blues going on. Venue was stunning, a converted barn in the polo club grounds.

    A surreal twist to the evening was that the polo club is owned by Kenney Jones, drummer in The Faces, Small Faces and The Who (after Moon died). He spent much of the evening chilling behind the bar!

    Madness 8/10

    supported by

    The Fratellis 6/10

    Madness played all the old favourites which of course are just as good as they ever were. They chucked in a couple of new songs which fell mostly flat but on the whole it was a great show.

    No one was there to see the Fratellis and I only knew 2 of the songs, was ok if entirely forgetable.

    Went to two fairly recently

    French Kiwi Juice (FKJ) - 10/10

    Great set and a very talented musician. He can play guitar, bass, drums, keyboard, saxophone and seeing him switch between them was impressive.

    Childish Gambino - 9/10

    Saw him last night at the o2 arena.Good set. He has got good range and has a bit of Outkast vibe to him. It was interesting hearing everyone sing n**ger like it is a normal word. Two annoyances were this woman who had to take selfies at every opportunity blinding everyone and a pint costing £7.

    As a side note, I think it's amusing that most of the live music venues are sponsored by banks or telecoms giants. Nothing says rock n roll quite like the marketing divisions of giant multinational corps.

    Saw Brother Ali in the Jazz cafe last Tuesday. Great to hear him do "Shadows on the Sun" in its entirety, along with a few other hits.

    Makes me feel slightly old, but the crowd was pretty pleasant!

    Went to see C Duncan last night after a friend had suggested it.

    It was a really good gig, very tight band and thoroughly enjoyed it, despite knowing nowt about them. Fairly downtempo, relaxed stuff, but still the best gig I've been to in ages tbh. Sadly, only about 100 folk turned up. I guess holiday weekends & other gigs in town didn't help, which was a real shame.

    Recommended if they're round your way.

    Went to see Sleeper a few weeks back. I say see, obviously as my eyes have both haemorrhaged recently, I couldnít see more than shapes. But they were bloody great. Really got the crowd going. 9/10.

    And I only went as they are one of the few Brit Pop bands I hadnít seen live. Up there with Suede as a live act. Far, far better than dull to watch bands like Oasis or the Stereophonics.

    Just back from Tame Impala at the O2.
    Love, love, loved it!
    We had decent seats, side of the stage and up a bit.
    The acoustics seemed to be really good so the music sounded clear and completely distortion free. Trippy-tastic light and laser show.
    They did a couple of new tunes. Set was 90 min, which felt a little short but probably about right for their quantity of material.
    My only slight negative was that Less I Know The Better, which is my favourite song came midway through the set - is been hoping/expecting it to be the finale.

    9/10 will go again when new album released

    Speaking of animal derived names, saw the Foals a few weeks back. Took my lad too after he had half - inched all my cds of theirs.

    We both enjoyed it a lot. Glad he's feeling the buzz of live music. 😃

    Manic Street Preachers - This is my truth 20th Anniversary tour.

    I love the Manics, seen them so many times. This is an album I love, with a greatest hits set at the end.

    They play the album in full, though out of order and with one track dropped and another track thrown in. Still enjoyed it, but there are a couple of quieter tracks where pig ignorant fucks decided to talk through it. Still a better deal than other gigs where there were reports of fighting, women being sexually assaulted and some prick telling James Dean Bradfield to get over Richeyís disappearance/death.

    The greatest hits set included some rarely played tracks which made for a very nice change. Just a shame in Manchester we didnít get an obligatory cover version thrown in the set. The last few nights of the tour included a rendition of Sweet Child of Mine. Iíd love to hear their take on it. Still canít be helped. Hopefully I will hear it on the next time I see them.

    Saw Spice Girls at the Etihad last week. Most of the songs, even the hits, are a bit pants really (though Who Do You Think You Are is a great track), but it was an excellent performance and good fun.

    Mark Knopfler- O2

    The session musicians were all superb. Apparently between 9 of them they could play 46 different instruments. Did a few dire straights classics also and hes a great guitarist.

    Just got back from a Bon Jovi thing.

    The band is excellent, they played good material with the mushy lovey kept to a minimum. Too bad JBJ doesnít really sing any more. He sort of recites, mostly out of breath (he does move a lot, Iíll give him that), and he was a good half second behind almost all the time. Itís really too bad.

    Despite that they gave one hell of a show in the second half. Played for a solid 2.5 hours, too.

    Rod Stewart - AECC, Aberdeen

    Despite a few narks I have it was another excellent performance from Sir Rod spanning a careers worth of hits.

    It's just a shame the venue (the concourse of a defunct airport for the oil companies) was such a let down. We were sat right at the back which felt miles away from the stage and there was zero atmosphere from the people around us who looked equally pissed. Though probably not as pissed as the people who paid for tickets only to find a giant tower blocking their view.

    Given the space they should've had some stands for seating and the floor for standing for a better more intimate atmosphere.
