Third. That must have taken a lot of thought!
Still, out on April 14th, I'm curious to see what it's going to be like.
and sidestep the obvious "Turd" jibes
that title is as original as the titles for their last album, and that was alright.
Can anyone say anticlimax?
PS - I hope it's brilliant.
it will be really rather good
in Edinburgh, but £28.50 + b.f screams "cash-in" to me, so they can suck it.
Either that or i'm a skinflint.
judging by the ATP set
but out of the 150 or so gigs i've been to that's the most expensive one yet. I just refuse to pay that sort of money and bow to a cash-in.
I'll watch the Roseland DVD on Surround Sound and a widescreen and just pretend i'm at the Corn Exchange
and it's not just Portishead. Better get used to gigs being more expensive as they are more popular/fashionable and people are prepared to pay more to go to them (as shown by the ridiculous prices paid on the black market). The same thing has happened to football since the PL started, rugby since WC2003 and cricket since Ashes 2005. Music is no different.
but £28.50 is probably even just-over-standard price for a show at the arena in Glasgow, let alone a 2,500 capacity venue (which is shit, nonetheless) in Edinburgh.
And when people like Joanna Newsom can have 33 people on stage and charge £18, i have to question the necessity of £30 for a gig.
It could be far worse (see: Bjork tour), but i still ain't paying it.
