3.00 Tracy Is Hot & The Clap
they'll play 128 'songs' !
They were the last band to play. Singer was drunk, they played for 17 mns and 80% of the meager crowd was already out when they finished...
I've often seen 10 - 15 minute sets.
I guess if you count open mics I've seen 5 - 6 minute sets or even shorter.
bands rarely play less than 30 mn sets, even the first band on the bill !
That Alchemicals gig was in London, at the Fitz and Firkin, a long time ago...
i can kiss away the pain
played to 10 people for 10 hours! that's ridiculous.
him:'bunch of fuccking hippies....' or somesuch
me: 'i'm off to watch the Wailers'
or is it just that they're brainlove's bad new band?
you got it, the john brainlove vanity experience it is :D
pussy galore once played in london for 30 seconds... before the first punch was thrown and the music technically stopped...
then again the last "real" pumpkins show was four hours...
amusingly enough, sort of, I worked out that the amount of times I'd seen catherine wheel and the amount of time they'd strung out that fucking black metallic song was about two shows worth of one song. plonkers.
and to make us wait through that for the pumpkins
that played for 15 mins - one song - then they finished. it was odd, i kinda liked it, but no-one else did.
Kylie Minoise played on Sunday, lasted about 5 minutes. Was incredible too.
Parliament/Funkadelic/Bootsy Collins gigs go on for hours, dont they?
Blonde Redhead did a 1 song set in Iceland a little while ago due to technical problems!!
Beirut also did this last year didnt they?
to pride ourselves on doing 14 songs in 10 minutes, then we moved to 17 songs in 17 minutes.
we suck though.
on the Antics tour
After 15 minutes of painful boredom I had to retire to the bar - an hour and a half later they finished their set
played for 3 hours when i saw them, also did smashing pumpkins wen i saw them on their farewell tour. as for short sets , i once saw amen play and during the first song the singer dove in the drum kit and pulled all the amps over thus was the end of the gig haha
used to play for hours and hours, I would have loved to have seen a small part of one of those shows.
one of the best 3 hours of my life.
at least, I'm fairly sure when I saw them headlining in 1994ish they played approx half an hour, with no encore.
but there are definitely exceptions
Lambsbread flew all the way in from Ohio to play for 13 minutes.
gig at Cargo a few weeks back. Headline slot and he played for about 30mins. I felt a bit cheated by that.
I once saw them do a 2 and a half hour set. At least I got some sleep that night...
Queuing for 24 hours to see Morrisey play an 18-minute set at Wolverhampton Civic Hall was a bit of bummer. Worth it though.
did about 2 and a half hours at Birmingham NEC a few years back but that was great.
BRMC did a 3 hour set when i last saw them, BSS came pretty close to that too.
shortest was probably shitdisco, about 15 minutes of utter shite.
the brmc 3 hour astoria show, happy times
i saw bjm play for 3 1/2 hours once, way to long
the astoria show was immense..
It is grand.
Pornography + Disintegration + Bloodflowers + encore in full
That was fuckin' long, but expected!
where's the set times?
all dayer thingy.
brainlove posted them in the thread about the alldayer on the social board.
headline sets when they first touring - this was mainly due to a tiny back catalogue, all of which they played AND a cover.
doesn't he? at least when touring with the E Street band.
at the ATP they curated. 2 and a half hours BORING
CPWK regularly play 15 minute sets.
played for well over an hour in brighton the other night. it was HAMazing.
founder of the Benares Tabla style, is rumoured to have played for 7 consecutive days and nights. Maybe he had some sort of nappy setup; I dunno...
Except comedy festival greatest hits sets.
how did this band ever get a record deal?
more than enough for a Brainlove affiliated band
do a 20-25 minute set as headliners in 1992.
played about 35 minutes when I saw them in the 80s. It was a tiny club and there were about 25 people there and you could see it in their eyes: fuck this. Ha!
Many people would pay almost anything to see what you saw.
than they were known for playing over here i think..
do about 3 hours including encore breaks in Donny many moons ago.
brilliant they were too
seeing Blessed Ethel with Ash supporting the night Kurt Cobain killed himself.
Ash - 25 mins
BE - 15/20 mins, including falling off the stage.
Was strangeley great at the time.
first gig i ever promoted, they were one of the supports.
was 4 hrs long, the one they did at RAH last year was 3hrs 15 mins !
the shortest was Babes in Toyland who played for 20 mins
