Saw Nadine Shah at the Moth Club last night. I only really know her last album so parts of the set were completely new to me, but her band were incredible (esp. Ben Hillier on drums) and I was impressed with her presence as a frontwoman. Will definitely be checking out the new record and delving into her back catalogue.

Caught the last few songs of Melt Yourself Down who supported. Worked much better (and had less of an electro sheen) live than the songs I'd heard on a popular music streaming service, but unlikely to be something I'll listen to in my own time.

In full disclosure I should add that, having repeatedly made digs at Krbrurg and others for amateur midweek drinking approaches, I declined Mahoney's kind offer of a beer and stayed off the sauce. Unlike Shah's near neighbour Jimmy.

Ark at Rod coming out with his side of the story before me and Kburg break the news that he wasn't drinking because "he has a busy week ahead at work". Of course I am not one to beer-shame, though Rod has taken great pleasure at mocking me in the past. Though I fully agree with the time he attacked Krburg for having a cup of coffee. I can't accept that kinda behaviour.

Frickin' loved Melt Yourself Down last neet. Shah was good shit too.

The whole of Scotchland sighed when Rod turned that beer down.

When did I have a coffee, i've absolutely no doubt this was the case as I'm more than partial, but don't remember where or when?

The same Rod who has repeatedly mocked you and Kev for turning down drinks ever since he moved to the Smoke? That Rod? Shurely not.

I've no idea what you are talking about.

Went back to the Moth Club last night to see Mikal Cronin. Shannon Lay supported, she had a a record out on Sub Pop last year & is also a member of Feels. folk-solo thing, not my preferred type of support act but her songs had enough character to get a pass from me. Mikal Cronin I really liked his self titled record he had out in 2011 (man, I could have swore that was out only about 3-4 years ago) The MKII record didn't impress me much and the songs I'd heard from YouTube from his past couple didn't really grab me enough to bother listening. So I took a bit of a chance, had it been in a bigger venue I wouldn't have taken a chance but damn he was really great. Just a 3-piece set-up (drums were far too loud in the mix throughout) & they flew through an hour of garage/Power-pop full of great hooks & Cronin is damn impressive on lead guitar. Was a joy watching him perform. A problem I have with him on record that was evident live is I feel his vocals are a little weak, if he made straight up power-pop they'd be fine but I kinda wish he had a bit more of a growl or bite in his vocals. Minor complaint, impressive gig that I'm glad I took a chance on.
His bass player I've seen perform with other bands, probably Ty Segall but I'm struggling to find a name or place him so it is driving me mad at the moment.

Went to Peckham Audio last neet. Saw Tiña, they've released a couple of singles on Speedy Wunderground. Was really impressed. Not all their songs hit but they had a few bangers, one caught me by surprise as it sounded like peak Jonestown. The singer looks like Noel Fielding and wears all pink & I've just seen that the bass player goes by the name Uncle Tesco :D Definitely a band I'll keep an eye on.
The Cool Greenhouse topped the bill. Saw them last year doing a support slot, did a good 45 minute set of spoken-word post-punk. Very sarcastic lyrics with really repetitive rhythms. Great stuff, becoming one of my favourite new bands quickly.

Dry Cleaning & Pozi in Brighton. Cool venue, good sound. Both bands played a blinder though crowd were perhaps a little subdued for a Friday night & no Dry Pozi supergroup at the end. Better than Liverpool, though Birmingham's my favourite of the 3 recent shows. Glad to catch them in these smaller venues whilst I can, they're doing a 1,800 capacity venue in TCOTU later in the year. Kinda mad for a band that still only has 2 EPs

Roll With It (The Ultimate Oasis Experience) - Larne Tennis and Bowls Club

I wanted to hate this, I REALLY REALLY wanted to hate this and I've never seen the point of tribute bands. And despite Larne now being home, it's an utter shithole of a town. So it's fair to say I was like a bear with a sorehead all day leading up to this.

However, the people here love a good time and couldn't give a flying fuck if they look cool or not and that to me was really refreshing. Loads of Wellends about the place as well. Gig had to be halted as the fella who lives across the street from me got "on stage" during one of Noel's bits, full three piece suit on but with his tie tied round his head, absolutely smashed and was giving it the full on Liam pose at the mic.

They played 2 hours. All the hits were played, the low point was obviously 'The Importance of Being Idle' and 'Little By Little' back to back but I went out for a smoke at that point to find 'Liam' in the smoking area chasing his wig that the wind had blown off.

You don't get entertainment like that at Dry-fucking-Cleaning.

8/10

I've added a bonus point for the fact that Sonnet, a Richard Ashcroft tribute act failed to show up and they just played back to back Britpop classics over the PA instead.

Saw Jarvis Cocker's new JARV IS project at the Steelyard, a club underneath Cannon St. station. Thought the venue was actually alright apart from a 25 minute queue to get in while they took a copy of everyone's ID. Probably not what you need for a Monday night gig where the majority of the crowd is over 40.

Anyway, the show was ostensibly to promote his new single and album, which were announced on the day. He played everything off the album, which is alright but seems written to achieve anything other than a 3 minute single, as well as a few off Further Complications, His N Hers and an obligatory Cunts are Still Running the World. He attempted an unnecessary and outright embarrassing attempt at therapy during the last song but otherwise he remains the most compelling frontman I've ever seen.

what Rod said + 7.9 outta 10.

Can't believe Further Complications is 11 years old. I hadn't seen him perform since that tour.

I saw Dry-Fucking-Cleaning last neet do their biggest headline gig yet at the Village Underground. The Wants were on first, they feature two members of Bodega. The opening two numbers were pretty damn good, unfortunately the rest of their material felt a little safe. I'll check the record out when its released, though not expecting too much. 
Pozi came on at 9 so had basically a full crowd of about 700-800 people. They looked a little nervous at first but hit their stride quickly. Wonderful band.  
Dry Cleaning were as great as always, sorry to state the obvious but I love this band. They did 2 new songs, one which they've done the whole tour and the other I think might be the one they played in Bedford earlier in the year - but I can't be sure. The bass was a little low in the mix, though of all the times seeing them they finally got Flo's vocals perfect into the mix, you could hear every word she was saying crystal clear. "I've got scabs on my head" & "Why don't you want oven chips?" are my favourite one-liners from the new material :D 

I'm including pictures in this thread from now on, mostly because I feel it will upset Chrissie enormously.

You'd think fake-Dickie could have shown up and done Sonnet, Lucky Man & Song for the Lovers for such a big occasion. There's an Oasis tribute near me called SLIDE-OASIS next Friday :D I saw somewhere a listing for a high flying birds tribute, what the actual fuck.

Thank you Barny. Your support + Chrissie's disapproval inspire me.
