I am sure you have all done this a load of times, but am interested.
Partly 'cos we seem to play a lot of gigs together although I'll happily go and see them if they're playing anyway.
Mogwai - 19
I suspect there are a number of others around the ten times mark:
Senseless Things, Kingmaker (you heard), Cud (c'mon it was a simpler time).
Then a raft around the six times mark: Pavement, Ryan Adams, Ride, Modest Mouse etc etc.
Felix da Housecat.
I think 6 times. I'm not even a huge fan
I rule harder
its not nearly enough! Ive seen j mascis play nearly everytime hes been here since 2000
Reef = about the same
That's 7 more than me, and I thought I was doing well.
trail of dead - nine times
silversun pickups - five times (in three months!)
part chimp - seven times
bearsuit - eight times (at least)
pumpkins - six times
jnr loaded - thirty times (at least - I did end up roadieing for them though...)
selena harrington (folkie canadian girl) fifteen times, helluva voice!
amy blue - nah, that's cheating...
And none of them were really intentional. I used to think he was quite good, now his stupid earnest face annoys the fuck out of me.
I've seen Gay Against You loads too, like 8 or 9 times now, but they're still consistantly amazing.
but my god I agree on his face. Really want to trip him up.
4 times come november
The Bluetones about 7 times
Chumbawamba about 11 times
and, for some fucking reason, The Subways about 7 times as well.
Melvins - 5
DEP - 4
Shellac - 7 (inc. 5 atp sets though)
Wolf Eyes - 4
ISIS - 4
Havent seen anyone a ridiculous amount of times though...

7 times I think.
Biffy - 7 or 8
Hundred Reasons - 6ish
Capdown - 5
Bring the RAWK!
is foo fighters around the 9 or 10 mark, purely co-incidental though as i only bought tickets to see them twice and that was on their first 2 album tours, after that its been at festivals, they are the biggest festival whores i can think of!!
other ones ive seen a few times are mogwai x 5, million dead x 5, pumpkins x 4, sonic youth x 4, biffy clyro x 4, radiohead x 4, qotsa x 4 and theres many more around that 4 or 5 mark haha
both around the 10 mark
Ash 24 times, Idlewild 20 times, Muse 12 times, Foo fighters 12 times, Arcade Fire 7 times.
65daysofstatic about 12
I've seen Napoleon iiird maybe 6 times.
I've seen Jon Gomm five times, although being just one bloke he probably doesn't count as a 'band'.
I've also seen Muse 5 times, although 4 of those were at festivals.
I'm going to see iLiKETRAiNS for the 5th time on Sunday, preceded by Asian Dub Foundation for the 4th time on Saturday. :)
The band I've seen live most is Gibraltarian thrash-metal band Daor. Must be at least 15 gigs I reckon. But that's just because I share a house with two of them and often get roped into being a roadie!
A-ha - 3
Audioweb - 5
Mogwai - 5
Space - 5
Iron Maiden - 2
The Verve - 3
Is the best list ever.
Dunno if its a compliment or not but during the 90's I went to any gig that I could get tickets for.I even went to see The Monkees with Ant and Dec joining them on stage for ' Im Not Your Stepping Stone'.
seen them at least 25+ times.
Seen Biffy Clyro about 8 or 9 times by accident, not really a fan at all. There are loads of bands I've seen 4 or 5 times, but thats not a spectacular feat.
frank turner - about 50 and meet me in st. louis about a million (these don't count though)
Million dead - 15 / 16
biffy - 10
jetplane landing - 8

About 20 times I think.......
dEUS 6 or 7 or something
same with The Fall
foals - about 8
nic dawson kelly - 6?
5 times i think.
most days for at least a couple of years! But that probably doesn't count.
For some reason, most likely a punishment from God, I've seen A about 8 times.
because a lot of them weren't me going to see the band, especially youthmovies.
About 20-25 times at a guess.
Catherine Wheel at Wedgewood and Joiners?
Even if we didnt know it then.

gorky's about 50 plus(but only because my best friend was a member)

this game is rubbish
but JJ72, a gargantuan 16 times
Low - 9
Interpol - 8
Almost regret this: Belle and Sebastian -6

about 20 times.
Editors - 13
Miss black america/the dawn parade - lost count, region of 8 each
Interpol - 5
Bloc Party - 6
TCTC - 6
Mystery Jets - 6

around ten times.
followed by 65daysofstatic i think. about 6 or 7 for them.
then i dunno. i've seen forward russia, trail of dead and bloc party about three times each i think. definitely three for trail of dead. maybe more for the other two, including festivals.
lyca sleep-6/7(12ish including exit calm)
probably some more
i've seen sparklehorse 12 times. think i saw gorky's around 10 times. errm.
nearly 20 times, in everything from a rugby pub to the side of the stage at summer sundae.
and then, erm probably the manics a good 10 or 12 times, including 3 times in 3 days in oz.
whoever saw prolapse 37 times is a very lucky man
i saw you at thee side of the stage. i tried to blag my way there too but to know avail
i had to drag the festival director to the box office to give me the correct band. and then no bugger checked it.
I'm almost embarrassed to say! I've only seen a couple of bands more than once;
Puressence - 8 times
Tool - twice
Youthmovies - 3 times
These monsters - twice
and some more probably, that'll do, it's pathetic. And I thought I went to a lot of gigs!
That's what comes of only getting into 'good' music at age 25!
11 times in 2006, about 25 in total
Super Furries 15+
The Fall 15+
Loads in the 10+ mark
