Oh well, anyone know who last night's (Sunday's) support was? They don't appear to have been Joe Gideon and the Shark.
They weren't anything special, I just want to know for future reference.
I really enjoyed the gig, though. Lots of spitting from Cave and Ellis but onto the stage not the audience.
steve 'loose lips sink ships' gullicks band.
This was a low point for me, I admit.
He looks like how I imagine rumplestiltskin would.
aw man they were so good.
so, so good.
it might well be the greatest gig I've ever been to.
Met Nick and Warren after the show, which was terrifying to say the least.
words would fail me.
i met warren ellis at primavera and he was very pleasant. i had a photo taken with him, and i look like a complete moron. nonetheless it is one of my favourite photos :)
but then he hugged me! very surreal!
where were you stood?
and HOW pretty is that venue? oh my god.
We were stood in a line from the right speaker stack, down in the pit area.
It was definitely one of the best gigs I've been to this year, much better than the Hammersmith show, although I did miss the first half an hour of that which didn't help matters.
turned up late with my ticket which is why I didn't get in at the start.
That would imply he went on about 8.15? That sounds quite early to me. Maybe they had their watches wrong, through. :D
turns up to a gig at 9:30 and expects to see the whole set? Unless it's a band with NO BACK CATALOGUE.
...presenting the Turner Prize.
Due to lack of pissin' funds once again. Still I did catch Grinderman earlier in the year, which was unbelievable!
As far as ATP deals go I'm guessing £150 to be able to see two shows each by Dirty Three, Grinderman and Nick Cave doesn't really get much better value. That was a good ATP.
next year as I believe they have a new album out then?!
Good to know.
I guess they liked doing something a little different and it looks like Nick Cave enjoys playing guitar.
I thought it was awful. Hard to get a decent view, sound quality not great etc
much better than in places like Koko. I didn't like having to walk there in the freezing cold, but that was my fault for foolishly thinking it was a short walk from Aldgate East, instead of the half hour it took.
would have taken us from Liverpool Street straight there in 10minutes, which we utilised on the way home.
but it wasn't great. It looked nice inside and the sound seemed ok. I could see reasonably well too.
It clearly isn't designed for that amount of people though. I got my coat from the downstairs cloakroom just before the last song so I didn't have to wait, but I dread to think what the queue was like after the gig finished. The toilets were a bit of a joke too, I doubt the toilet man made much money.

Mercy Seat, Deanna and We Call Upon The Author were highlights for me.
Been wanting to see Nick Cave and the bad seeds for years and they were one of the best acts I've ever seen. Completely exceeded my expectations. Seeing clips just didn't do the live act justice - you can't take your eyes off of the guy. I thought that The Bad Seeds were awesome as well - so tight and they were heavier and more experimental than I expected. I thought that a lot of the stuff off DLD added a lot of life to the set - We Call Upon the Author and Moonland were surprise highlights, although they don't blow me away on record. Personally would have loved to hear Oh My Lord or The Carny but no complaints at all with the set.
Also, really liked the venue even though it meant I missed my train home and I got stranded. I thought that was some of the cleanest sound I've heard at any venue in London and it was really easy to get a good view.
The gentlemen's toilet queue was of Glastonbury-proportions at times. I actually stopped drinking because I couldn't face having to queue like that.
the cloakroom queue was epic, but while i can't speak for everyone else, i was in a post-cave daze, so in no fit state to complain about it.
the venue was SO pretty. sound was fine, and despite being stuck at the back of the standing area, could see plenty well. really really enjoyed it. pity they stopped people getting into the main pit but from a safety point of view i guess i can't really blame them.
only complaint: no tap water at the downstairs right hand side bar. this is always gay - tap water should be available at every bar.
i really liked their carpet. i was ooh-ing and aah-ing at the decor for some time.
2 hours of intensity and didn't even do todays lesson, albert goes west, lie down here or more news. great venue, stained glass fuckin lighting ornaments.
