THE BEDFORD GIG ISNT SOLD OUT!??!
Anyone wanna gimme a lift?
if you want
I'm going to see them tomorrow in London! Hurray!!!
bloc party played there on the tour for Little Thoughts back in july 04. just about every other date was sold out, for bedford i paid on the door. BEDFORD ROCK CITY.
rockbitch sold out esquires once though.
"At a Birmingham show in 2002, the golden condom was caught by Johnny Goatboy of support band The Dangerfields, who did indeed have sex with two band members at the side of the stage."
i actually know him. he posts on here sometimes.
he was at the STA alldayer/aftershow in 06.
must have been an amazing gig.
when and where are people drinking from?
LOOK I MADE A THEO JOKE x
You at Guided Missile tonight or in Bedford? I'll be at the former to film Brontosaurus Chorus.
that was fun. top marks to les savy fav for being as incredible live as i expected, and to joeymahone and olegrich for engaging in the worst stage invasion ever. BEDFORD ROCK CITY!
getting home, though... not so good al, not so good.
It was very excellent. I managed to get the last train back to London at with only minutes to spare. I didn't fancy wandering the mean streets of Bedford until 5:40am...
we went to a rubbish club where olegich molested a defenceless 18 year old and then we had hot food and then i tried to go to sleep on the concrete outside bedford station and it was so cold i seriously thought i was going to die but then they let us into the station just after 5 so that was ok. then i went on a magical mystery bus tour from hendon to tufnell park via golder's green, kilburm and camden town. FUN STUFF.
no! the pad. i love the pad, but it IS rubbish.
haven't been there for a while, since my mate got chucked out for throwing his drink over the barman!
'olegich molested a defenceless 18 year old'
Thats the biggest heap of shit ever. I should punch you in the mouth for spouting such rubbish.
there is no mention of Tomliens antics. This is all anti richard propaganda.
i'm not sure you're even capable of that emotion.
they hugged each other and jumped around a lot, and then mahone tried to jump/crowdsurf from the stage and loads of people moved out of the way.
No offence to either of them, of course.
It really was pretty pathetic. I claim the Sambuca defence. Also, if the one person who didn't move out of the way is reading this, I'd like to apologise for basically knocking you flying and then running away.
YOU FOR NOT BACKING THEM UP. BAD SHOW.
since it was me who encouraged them to do it.
when i got up to stage dive at one of their gigs and they just stopped the song so i looked like a cock and had to just get down. AND LOOK WHAT HAPPENED TO HIM.
I wish I could have been there (apart from then having to listen to My Vitriol) as it sounds hilarious! :D
it would have been hilarious probably, but i can't help but feel it was them enjoying an ego trip, and so now i laugh at their inability to write songs.
their new album is out THIS YEAR!!!1
me at Dat Politics :(
the rest of the set I could give or take apart from a couple of songs. Is my hearing really going or was it nowhere near loud enough?
it wasnt as good as the Scala. but it were good. I should have been more drunk. it was still pretty spiffy though. also I saw you all and didnt say hello. ha. note perfect Debaser was amazing. Alcxxk said hello, and I mumbled something. good times.
though wore my shirt/hood combo up like a scene kid
i have a splitting headache. but damn that was worth it, not as good as the scala. but some seriously awesome stuff still. future of the left and los camp! were superb as usual as well.
'rome' was brilliant
and I don't know why I don't have a headache.
I had: some rosé cava (classy), three pints of Kronie Blanc two shots of sambucca, one shot of raspberry sambucca and a shot of a clear drink with little flecks of gold in it.
HEY I THINK THEY FIXED THE REPLY SYSTEM!!
Some strange corner of the place or something?
Future of the Left sounded louder than Les Savy Fav though or maybe that was just where I was standing for FOTL
i'm gonna be like Evelyn Glennie the deaf marimba player in about a year.
tim harrington entering the email comp to win the lsf signed guitar on the way in. the girl was clueless as he was saying "at l-e-s-s-a-v-y-f-a-v dot com".
awesome gig. disappointed i got there late and missed los campesinos! & not entirely convinced that fotl is my thing, but they were great fun. so happy lsf lived up to everything i'd heard, was my first time seeing them live.
Future of the Left were very good indeed.
Los Campesinos! were not great.
I enjoyed Los Campesinos!
who described Gareth Singer Off Of Campesinos! last night as 'looking like a 14 year-old having a tantrum'.
He looked proper miserable, and like he couldn't be bothered.
definitely. he seemed quite nervous though, maybe that was it.
I only got there for their last song, I heard him say "thank you to drownedinsound.com" or something. Couldn't tell whether he was being sarcastic or not after him quitting.
a dig at NME more than anything
has a haircut of a proper dickhead.
i think the sound guy at the astoria had a bit of trouble working out the twelve or so channels with los camps. And the fact that 90 per cent of the crowd stood there dumbfounded didn't help...
confused at los camp, but sod them. i had fun dancing with my other mates down the front.
wheres the sweet cheeks dance gone? :(
or something. i missed them.
Lo-Fi Culture Scene. Lovely guys, they've now supported LSF, Foals, Bloc Party and they played at Truck as well. Pretty good going seeing as none of them are even onto their GCSE course yet.
future of the left were really really good :D
Los Camp were ok, not loud enough.
was the cover of Archers of Loaf's "Wrong".
Not the best Fav gig i've been to by some way. Not the worst (for that was the Islington Academy show) but definitely not the best.
Les Savy Fav were at times very good, and sure I only knew 1/3 of the stuff they played, but aren't they just the logical evolution of lots of stadium rock bands from the 80's for 75% of the time?
I say that like its a bad thing, because in my mind it is...
FOTL = top notch
L!C - Probably seemed better than they were because I was with a friend who had only come to see them (plus 3 hours beer consumption) and we danced and shouted a lot. Gareth looked really pissed off about something and did anyone notice he changed the lyrics of Tweecore Underground to "I never cared about les Savy Fav"? This may have just been tounge in cheek of course.
I also noticed that FOTL played two new tracks; one was kind of 'electropunk' (apologies to any band member who may read that) and referenced Ghostbusters, the other was probably the Best Song Ever (TM) and featured the greatest wig out I've ever seen. Not musically, but visually.
Jack is a legend...
:) it was great. the ghostbusters song 'Avalanche' actually sounded at one point like an avalanche, which i thought was a very neat touch.
I loved the music but arghghgh the drummer. He couldn't keep up half the time! I was so bitterly disappointed by that band, I honestly thought they'd be a great live band. Sadly not it seems.
Everyone else was were great though. Preferred the fav at the Scala mind, it's probably that great big barrier which put me off.
Los campesinos!: well I enjoyed them.
FOTL: Very good indeed.
LSF: Very good.
Overall a pretty damn sweet night.
Or am I misremembering?
I don't know why I said that. I may be confusing them with someone else. Like Rammstein.
but it fell apart on the bus home :(
a massive poster of lovefoxx. She lives on the back of my door now.
I kept thinking was fionapinkstars when I saw her out the corner of my eye?
the one who you collected her coat for!
I still enjoyed them but Gareth really didn't look too happy.
Thought FOTL were reliably mint, Manchasm was a highlight but Small Bones Small Bodies was brutal. Possibly the best live band in the country right now. New songs sounded shit hot as well.
Thoroughly enjoyed the Fav and got to fondle Tim Harrington a few times, which is always a bonus. The covers of Wrong and Debaser were fucking ace and it was great to hear We've Got Boxes again.
fotl very good
los camp disappointing
that i looked like a member of east 17.
i have no plumbing skills whatsoever
'But the best one, Tony Mortimer!'
i had an amusing time DiSser spotting from above.
that's funny that the hat was jasmines, as i thought i recognised the back of her head.
it was awesome, i am trying to upload some iffy photos and some videos now...
links to follow!
thoroughly amazing, although I almost passed out during the
I thought Los Camp were good, but as has been said yer man seemed really pissed off about something.
FOTL the left were brutal. I loved it. Oh and the guy who shouted out "Fuck off you're shit" when their pedal broke, wow man, you are breaking down linguistic barriers. You should be poet laureate or something.
LSF were LSF. Great fun, and I echo the sentiments that the Debaser cover was even better than when I saw the Pixies play Debaser.
I also met Steve Lamacuq. Twice.
Down points - the stupid bint behind us who spent the whole of LSF screeching about how cool she was, and the people stood next to me, who shot me dirty looks any time I seemed to, you know, ACTUALLY ENJOY THE MUSIC AND NOT STAND THERE STONY FACED THINKING ABOUT HOW COOL I'LL LOOK WHEN I TELL EVERYONE I WENT TO LES SAVY FAV TOMORROW.
sang along to every FOTL song. me - badly.
'adeadenemyalwayssmellsgood' made me unspeakably happy.
After all the excitement and people telling me how much I was going to love Les Savy Fav, I really didn't enjoy them at all. I seem to be alone in thinking that they have no tunes and a shit sound though, so perhaps I'll be proved wrong in time...
3rd time I've seen LSF last night and they just don't do it for me. Style over content x 1000.
I was genuinely worried that something had gone wrong in my mind and that the blazing truth would be revealed to me at any minute.
Perhaps I'd have enjoyed them more if they'd been on before FOTL? I seriously defy ANYONE to follow FOTL and not look a bit lame by comparison. I love the way Falco's guitar sound perfectly compliments his voice so that they both sound like molten cancer of the eyes.
I do have tinitus though.
finding out that every band I listen to since hearing the FOTL debut are indeed toss.
Mclusky had the same effect, and made nearly all other music redundant.
of the reason I didn't enjoy LSF that much to be fair. I agree.
I mean, FOTL were brilliant I know but seriously, I had a boner by the opening bars of What Would Wolves Do?
ALOT, but there just aren't any other bands out there that are nearly as fun, witty, rocking, different, experimental, intelligent or so well groomed
never seen them before. i enjoyed having a little mosh. i enjoyed singing along to debaser. i didn't enjoy missing The Sweat Descends due to an ill-advised piss break. yeah. good stuff.
i bloody hate central london though - got out of the gig at 10:45ish and couldn't find a pub still serving! had to go to that fucking atrocious 101 bar under centre point.
was the between band DJing.
KT Tunstall and Corinne Bailey Rae as a swift one-two punch before LSF.
Oh NME. Your hairgel sponsored gigs treat us so well.
Good to know the sponsors truly have their fingers on the racing pulse of their target demographic.
The 5 choices for the 'Best New Band' category of this year's NME readers' poll was good for a laugh as well. Which band has truly shaped the way my ears rotate this year - The Enemy or The Wombats? Decisions, decisions, decisions...
I have never been to Bedford.
you'll have to bribe Brooner to delete his photos.
I should have, clearly!
there's not that many of the carnage, but there is a ridiculous amount of LSF action. and of you guys attempting sleep in phone boxes.
i was a homophobe because i didn't want to join them.
it wasn't because people piss in phone boxes, oh no.
You're as bad as PocketMouse.
except we went to the gig and came straight home afterwards. There was nothing involving A Level students.
are you sure they were even 18? ;)
and I saw the argument.That bloke was a bellend. Luckily Theo was nice enough to take our tickets and collect our things.
and yes, loch fyne t-shirt. 'Once in a while'
if he is a friend, but it was a silly thing to get so riled about.
i didn't see you.
that was some pretty poor dancing too on my part.
i was disappointed they didn't play Knowing how the world works too. would have been great live i bet.
then i didn't go back...
Word travels fast.
but plenty of them, from bedford anyway.
jasmine like pushed me out of the way at one point and i recognised her and she looked really out of it so i said nothing and kept dancing.
other than that, nearly didn't get in because my friend had weed on her, but she disguised herself and got in later.
les savy fav were definitely the best thing there. future of the left had some amazing songs, but not alot, and i enjoyed los campesinos! even if i was only one of about two people dancing.
your friend nearly didn't get in because she weed on jasmine.
The London Lite review of this? It left me fuming. They review Cut Off Your Hands even though they didn't even play, say that Future of the Left played brilliant "not that anybody cared" - I thought they got a great reception and that Les Savy Fav didn't match the "enthusiasm" of L!C - even though the latter mainly looked like they didn't want to be there. They also kept referring to all the bands as "weird" - I know they're not exactly commercial but I'd hardly consider them as fucking WEIRD. Cunt.
purely because of their sudoku content - 3>2>1
metro has 1 and LL has 2.
LL is still badAIDS tho
Pretty poor review (like you said Cut Off Your Hands didn't even play!). I do agree about FOTL though, it's not like people didn't clap or anything but it did seem like there was a general lack off interest.
Probably nothing actually...
It would rate better than The Maccabees board... fo' sure.
FOTL should put "they were all very upset (those extra shifts at the warehouse probably did it) most of the were songs about war (probably)" on a T-shirt.
hurts my eyes almost as much as the content :(
most of the were songs about war (probably)
SOMEONE SPRAYED THAT ARTICLE WITH GRAMMARICIDE.
Seriously, do they even employ sub editors?
Amazing. I think that's the best use of parentheses I've ever seen.
as opposed to a four piece rock trio?
"most of the band looked like Microsoft middle management"
Christ. That review is awful. I am all over making a t-shirt that says "most of the were songs about war (probably)" though.
