God I wish I had been there
My old band had a gig with him this one time.
On the Brainlove tour:
On my roof:
...and probably one of the best gigs I have ever witnessed.
I ran over from the main stage because I was running late after hearing the rumours about him playing with a big band. I didn't know what to expect exactly but for the following half hour I was stood at the front with the biggest grin on my face.
A veritable who's who of the Leeds music scene :D
I'm SO excited about the album. I get to hear some of the new songs tomorrow omg
...it seems so long since I last heard any new material.
Can't wait to see him in Lancaster again later this month either.
Last time he played there there were two pilled up guys dancing and singing at the top of their lungs down the front offering poppers to people.
That's brilliant. Who gets pilled up for a Boney3 gig?
Answer: those two guys.
Yeah well hopefully the album will be out in April and there'll be a tour, so if you know any promoters in your town tell them now's the time for booking! Brainlove bands in support too.
I sense a road trip...
I wanna come!
Oh well, he's playing Water Rats on Sunday, I'll be at that one.
...I'm gonna start attempting to bribe someone for a lift down cuz my car is shagged.
Can't leave your car alone for 5 minutes without some out of work miner bumming the still warm exhaust pipe.
...it IS pretty fit.
Rate him NIIIRD fans!
...just been on the HiFi Club page and it starts at 6 and finishes at 10.
Doesn't look like I'm gonna make it down in time :(
The best gig I've been to for a long time.
i made a topic about it months ago.
i am the ill looking one in the red shirt
Napoleon does DiS-
Saturday 10th March
Nottingham Junktion 7
The Strange Death Of Liberal England (post-rocky-rock with singing and tunes)
Heads We Dance, electro-project from simon ilt (apparently)
Heroes Of Switzerland (notts five-piece Ride-ing on a Dinosaur JR vibe)
or something like that.
£4 in advance.
Napoleon IIIrd text me on christmas day. hes a nice guy
that is an excellent looking bill. Not heard Heroes of Switzerland, but the rest I rate very highly. Heads We Dance is not however a Simon iLT side project, but is the best pop you will hear this year.
what is it then? i live off second hand information. i am a tool.
will you be gracing our greasy shores with yr presence for this gig then? perhaps a spot of DJing might be in order?
Want a guest DJ?
as i stated in the private message i sent you two weeks ago
sorry for not remembering. i am a drunk.
wires are crossed because Simon has been helping them out, booking gigs and such. Will think about making a trip down to notts. I could combine it with the football if County are at home. I am however not much cop behind the wheels of steel.
thats probably it.
am dont worry about not being much cop djing, you wont do worse than my failed attempt at mixing your own terra nova into 'copa cabana' at our november gig. three people actually threw up
I think the main difficulty in mixing those particular tracks is the difference in time signature. I appreciate the effort though!
that and the fact i was confused over which deck was which in a drunken haze. was a top gig though.
but then ive only seen yr dad from behind
why he likes me
