the wedding present at norwich arts centre last night.

did seamonsters in full then a second set of various classics with a couple of new songs thrown in. i thought both new songs sounded great actually so i'm looking forward to hearing recorded versions. always such a good live band and despite another lineup change with the guy from sleeper now on guitar and a new drummer from when i last saw them, they're sounding tight. david gedge has aged about 100 years in the past 2 years though. full on silver fox and had a tablet with the lyrics on which i don't think i've ever seen him do before. put him on your death list for next year.

The K’s @ King Tut’s

Four piece lad rock band signed to Alan McGee’s latest label. It was a pal’s suggestion I went. They’re bang average. No killer hooks, no edge, piss-weak rhythm section. I always think bands like this - in the same vein as The Snuts etc - are supported like football teams. Fans love the local connection to their hometown, even if the tunes are substandard crap. 4.

Shame @ QMU

I felt with Shame the performance was better than the songs. Good frontman and lots of energy. Some of the tunes merged into one though. Need more hits like One Rizla and Concrete. 6.5

Massey Hall in Toronto has been closed for the last 3 years for repairs/renovations. For the non-Canadians, it’s roughly the equivalent of a cross between the RAH and the ryman in Nashville. Canada’s Mecca of music. Anyway, aside from the famous Neil young show, it’s most associated with Gordon lightfoot, who’s played there close to 200 times apparently. It’s always been on my bucket list to see him there before he dies, so when they announced he was reopening it,
I was going to be there come hell or high COVID. Last night was the big night and holy hell, the venue is gorgeous. They somehow managed to put modern touches in without ruining the old ambience.

A word about gord. He’s old. And not old like the 60s guys you all (rightly) mock me for seeing. He looks like a fucking skeleton. Anyway, there was a possibility he wasn’t going to make this show because he fell and broke his wrist a few months ago (again: old) but he basically said he’d have to be dead to miss this. So instead of doing his normal two sets and an intermission, he got another old folkie named Tom rush to open for him. He was fine. Gord was given the key to the city in a ceremony before the show and he sounded like death when he gave a little thank you. Not a good sign. But he eventually came out and played for an hour and brought just the hits and sounded okay (relatively). The entire crowd was basically willing him to make it through the night…and he did.

Wasn’t the best show I’ve seen, but as a celebration of a beloved venue and musician, it was one of the most memorable. 7/10


(Glad we got it in before omicron kills us all too.)

I regret not booking something for this tour. We're in the SE when they play the forum on the 18th Dec, but we have the dog and it's sold out anyway. Really fancied a christmas libertines gig.
