St Etienne. Yes.
Yes, very much.
My bro took me to my first gig - DEF LEPPARD ... rather embarrassingly I still would listen to them yeah
at London Astoria (last show with Richey). Although I'd been to Reading festival earlier that year, but that's a festival not a gig.
Looking forward to the new album in a way I haven't since any of there LPs after the Holy Bible.
spring 1992 on the Use Your Illusion tour
i was 14 years old
still listen to all three bands, though obviously not Chinese Democracy or Chris Cornell's solo records
that was the same tour when they played Milton Keynes bowl wit Blind Melon and Soul Asylum? As actually maybe that was my first...
i was at that gig too, but it wasn't my first. my first gig was with my parents to see OMD. the first one i went to on my own (with friends) was to see... Extreme. i love them dearly, still, obvs.
great first post, eh?
oddly enough my second gig was a year later in 1993...
The Lemonheads + Soul Asylum + Eugenius @ Manchester Academy
THAT WAS MY FIRST GIG!!!!!
OMFG WHAT ARE THE ODDS???
Yes, although I havent listened to them in years
Wolverhampton Civic Hall, May 18, 2000
It was LOUD.
Still love them.
Turin Brakes. OH YEAH
I still listen to them (when my last.fm scrobbler is switched off. I'm that lame, yes)
I was a rabid fan of Muse & HR for years, haven't listened to them lately but don't have anything against any of them.
It was a properly amazing gig though.
- yes, I've given them 62 listens since I joined LastFM in Nov 07 (out of 35497 listens in total)
REM supported U2 along with Spear of Destiny and others.
I still have a soft spot for them, yes.
very much so.
And most definitely no.
First album occasionally. Very occasionally.
yes, still listen to expecting to fly occasionally.
Wembley 99, yes.
at the Crypt in Hastings, the former were ex members of shoegazers Loop and played a mostly instrumental set which was shoegazey psychedelic and great in retrospect but I was 14 and not impressed as the support Rosa Mota blew them away completely, they were punky, agrressive and in your face but they had a girl singing and playing flute that balanced it out amazingly.
So the former I have never heard again, the latter I went through a phase of trying to find all their recordings (including an album produced by Albini) that matched that show, but bar one song, it wasn't to be. Though it was a bloody good song and show and that's more than many bands have left me with :)
Had it on an old free tape thing, maybe from Select - not sure.
Only the first 2 albums now.
"Around the world or around the block, everywhere I go kids wanna rock". Urm, yes.
at Aylesbury Civic Centre when I was about 6. Yes - still the best gig I've ever been to, although Rory was terrifying.
I reckon it was either Sheryl Crow at Shepherd's Bush Empire, the Saturday of V96 (Pulp / Gary Numan / Supergrass etc) or Blameless at Southend Esplanade?
Not really, no. Though I did put 'Different Class' on weirdly yesterday for the first time in a decade.
in 2004 when they were touring their first album
Yes I do still like them.
Portsmouth pyramids in april (?). I saw them again in october. they played new songs. it was dead exciting.
bridges to babylon tour, i was in primary seven at the time and my dad took me. it was fucking brilliant. Gimmie shelter my favourite ever song
in Oldham around Christmas 92. I still like them a bit but don't really listen to them that much.
at Brixton Academy. That was my first gig and it was awesome. Still listen to them and am going to see them again this winter.
i've managed to convince an old friend to come down for the 2nd night (first 2 albums), couldn't really afford both nights with hotel bills and all. I'm looking forward to it, will be strange to be at a gig with no one under 30.
during the first reunion shows they did a couple of years ago. It was brilliant. Sultans Of Ping supported, just like the first time.
I'm going to the 1993 and Post Historic Monsters show. Really looking forward to it.
Although Dodgy were actually the FIRST band I saw as they were supporting. Worst gig ever.
lol, well...they were fun when i was younger
I had to google them to see if they still existed
on the XTRMNTR tour when Kevin Shields was playing with them. Mighty stuff! Yeah i still like them but their past two albums have been shite.
yeah still like them, haven't seem them live since they returned though.. Should I ?
Musically, not really.
Personally ... go figure.
Showing my age here, of course.
Nope, didn't really like either at the time, I just tagged along with my friends because they were all going.
Not sure I ever liked him in the first place. Apart from that... The Killers, maybe? Not too keen anymore, no.
yep...even though the swines haven't released anything in an age.
South of Heaven tour, somewhere round 87 / 88. Still love them to bits.
I still like his first few albums, after that it went the same way as a lot of rap/hiphop has gone.
Their first album has stood the test of time, every other piece of music in that genre (Big Beat- according to the media at the time) sounds fucking dire now.
Yes, wasn't so keen on the new stuff they released before the split though.
I wanted to see bands like smashing pumpkins, screaming trees etc but my friends were all about nofx and rancid. It was actually supposed to be green day but they cancelled, we wrote an angry letter to kerrang
21st april 1996 brixton academy £9 (!)
swapped ur green day ticket for rage against the machine like i did when they cancelled that tour :) they were touring basically the same venues , i just swapped mine at the box office when i found out green day was cancelled
me and a bunch guys at school were going to go to that same gig. shame they canceled. still wouldn't be seen dead listening to them now.
what the hell happened to Green Day? I reckon they were tragically killed in an accident and replaced by some guys picked out by Simon Cowell
Do I still like them...Oh hell yes....
Yep I still like them.
Leeds T&C Club 1994. Still listen to the old Soul Asylum albums (Hang Time etc). They were supported by the Meat Puppets, so they were technically the first band I saw live, and that sounds much cooler when people ask. And yes, I listen to them a lot still - Up On The Sun is a bona fide classic.
still like them, cept haven't listened to them in ages.
At the Knitting Factory, TriBeCa Manhattan, Yea I Still Like Wiley I guess.............
they're certainly not the worst band in the world... I like getting angry to 'monkey wrench'
not really. i mean if a good track from Word Gets Around comes on random i won't switch it off, but i doubt i've chose to listen to them in years.
Hell yes I do!
Actually seeing Brand New in the same venue as my first ever gig, 6 years later!
...1996. Didn't listen to them then, don't listen to them now.
Michael Jackson BAD tour Leeds 1988... and no. well yeah, but no.
at bishops stortford coconut club. They mimed for 15 minutes. I thought it was amazing. And, err, c'est la vie was a great song!!
Closely followed by the corrs x2, and travis, all at wembley. I still listen to both of these occassionally, but mostly for nostalgia/tin whistling purposes.
Godflesh, World Domination Enterprises, Loop. 1989. What a line up for a first gig!
And yes, I would still listen to all three of them.
he's alright in small well selected doses.
Surprisingly enough no. I didn't like them in the first place. Then came a Queen tribute band. I still like Queen a bit. Then Ash. I haven't listened to them in a million years.
Glasgow Apollo 16/11/83 when I was 14
I still slightly like them.
Second gig was Dis.com sponsored - Kenesis, Reuben and Miss Black America at the Underworld.
Still love their first three records. I gradually came to realise that their later material was mostly AOR cack.
I was about 7 though. And I do secretely still quite like them.
My first 'real' gig was Muse. And I don't like them anymore.
supported by Sleeper. Can't stand Damon Albarn, I don't listen to Blur a lot they're Ok though. just about ok.
No and Yes for old times sake - yes that old...
and yes, I still like them, although I haven't listen to them in ages. Ignition, Smash and Ixnay are all still great albums though.
inductee as well.
Appreciate Smash still, but don't really listen to it
Supported by AFI and A. Good times.
i arrived as A were covering madonna.
I like The Prodigy up to 2004.
I never liked Foo Fighters anyway.
I was pretty young, can't remember the exact age.
Yeah, I still like him.
Still one of my top5 bands ever !
god no :)
whatever year robbie williams played just after leaving take that \m/ i remember republica playing (possibly?) and a load of people boo-ing robbie.
definately don't still listen to them......
I was 9. I do not like them anymore.
not really although i guess i would nostalgically rock out too some of their early stuff :)
Don't like them as much but still decent
As I was new to gig going I made the mistake of missing Mystery Jets supporting
Well, unless Let Loose when they turned up and played a set at my school when I was about 13 counts.
My love of Biffy has dwindled since.
Pretty much haven't listened to Crackout since.
I would probably stick my Jarcrew CD on if I knew where it was...
Yeah, it was only last summer. Not sure if that even counts, but I had a good time. And yes, I still like Coldplay. Wanna fight about it?
Bristol Fleece 1995ish (not including friend's bands and Ashton Court festivals). I was 14, wore my Offspring tshirt and stage dived. Yes.
on the Colour & the Shape tour. I like the 1st two albums.
Had Redd Kross supporting. Still listen to Redd Kross a lot. Much better than the Foo Fighters.
yeah, why not.
must've been 2002? I was 14. And I went just for them.
- I first saw them on the Lifeblood tour in 2004, a bit late in their career I admit
- I've been a fan since about 1993
There was a time, I used to play Everything Must Change every day when I got in sight of the office!
but that doesn't really count. my first gig was fairly recently, january 08, grammatics/futureheads, and i like them both. nothing amazing, but still nice to listen to
internationally speaking (aka, that most of you can actually know) it's The Cranberries some 10ish years ago. I'd still like them if they'd kept on existing... which they didn't, and Dolores' solo doesn't really count so far...
Soon after they released They Were Wrong, So We Drowned. They were dressed very bizarrely and played a scarily noisy set. Blood Brothers supported, who I didn't enjoy, but Liars I loved and I vowed to go to many more gigs after that. I still like them.
don't remember the gig clearly, think i fell asleep because it was late, even though i liked it. listen to them rarely, still really like them, though. maybe too earnest/ cheesy sometimes, but aaron has one of the best voices ever and they're good.
i went for the blood brothers though
liars were good
My first gig proper was The Hives. And yes, they're still amazing to me.
Just after Brody hooked up with Josh Homme. Eagles of Death Metal supported (surprise, surprise).
Haven't put on an album of theirs in years but always feel really happy on the odd occasion i hear them somewhere.
at get loaded in the park. maybe 2006? i loved them. i still really like them. the 2nd album was just as good as the first.
greates hits tour so 2004...at eastlands. and green day doing american idiot pretty much in full at the MEN not sure which was first, but i was 13. went to leeds later that summer and discovered music.
On the Summer Sanitarium tour in 2003 were the first band I went to see as headliners, and I do quite frequently listen to them. Mudvayne opened proceedings on the day though, and I can't remember the last time I listened to them - not that I really ever did.
April 5th 1978 @ Southampton Gaumont
Would probably only choose to listen to Grey Cortina...
Sometimes, not one of my favourite bands though.
Yes I do.
was THe Blood Brothers
The Red Hot Chili Peppers, supported by Spacehog and The Toadies.
It was sometime in the mid/late 90's. And while I don't dislilke any of the three, I don't actively listen to any of them now either.
I don't mind when ^ comes on classic rock radio, but I don't love 'em like I did when I was eleven either.
Defo. Best British rock band ever!
Do I still love them? Yes
First 2 albums were great and I still listen to them. wouldn't want to see him again though.
was u2 at wembley on the popmart tour.
Still got a soft spot for them.
I then saw a year later Pulp/Catatonia at finsbury park, boith of whom i still like, and then 6 months later, my first indoor gig with Mansun, who i desperately wish would reform.
at Cardiff Uni where my sister was studying. I was 14 and it changed my life. I still listen to them every so often and think back. Technically, I did go to a Radio 1 Roadshow in Rhyl before that, but neither Texas, 2 Unlimited or Eternal sang live so it doesn't count!
those radio 1 roadshows were dire weren't they. so much expectation then so much disappointment. hey ho its like reading pitchfork these days :)
with friends: Pitchshifter = no
www.pitchshifter.com is still a cracking record.
at Wembley Arena in about 99/00. No, I don't still like them. I'm not sure I even liked them that much at the time.
I remember very little about it, apart from the fact that we left before the end, because my friend's mum was picking us up (I was only 14).
At Earls Court. I was thirteen and had purple hair and artfully ripped jeans. I do not still like them (apart from Stockholm Syndrome. You can't deny them that one song).
still have a soft spot for em.
manchester academy 1 - round 1998-ish?
First three albums. The last one was abit hit and miss with me.
1991. Great band, but stayed around too long.
alone - Stereophonics. Only under influence of drunken nostalgia.
I'd say yes, but it would only be out of nostalgia. Haven't listened to them in years.
you know, i'm not sure. i loved them when i was 15, haven't listened to them since. i hear the odd new single and it's pretty bad, but something tells me echo park probably stands up.
Yes - you're probably thinking the pop, boyband. I saw the musicians, not the manufactured opinion everyone seems to have. But whatever, they were the first and they still are my favourite band.
with my dad was my first concert
first one alone was violent femmes
with my mum and my brother.
I still love them and have seen them a few times since.
no. nah. never.
yes, but I haven't listened to them for aaages.. would quite happily do so though..
Oh yes. Still see them a couple of times a year. Still ace!
I was about 10 yrs old. I do still like them.
with giant drag as support, leeds 05.
I dont actively choose to listen to them much, but not got ought against them
No. But I do still love Word Gets Around.
Was the first with friends....... and yes
The first with the folks......Erm...... Phil Collins...... and No
not sure of the dates.......
and yes - I'm going to see them 3 times in 8 days later this month.
Yes, and recently I did
Wolverhampton Civic, April 2002
In the early 90s, was a fucking great gig. Just look at this, then you can imagine how it was: http://homepages.nyu.edu/~cch223/uk/instigators_main.html
I bought one of their t-shirts that day and loved it dearly. A year later, I somehow lost it and it still breaks my heart when I think of it...:-( I hope it's well oput there in this cruel world and the person who found it takes good care of it. The were an awsome live band!
Just a few days before Echo Park was released.
They were fab, I had such a good night but they're just not my cup of tea anymore, the first few albums are good fun rock songs though.
My Vitriol supported! I still love finelines which i bouht around this time. In fact I think it is one of the strongest most consistent albums i have heard.
In Glasgow... for My Vitriol, rather than Feeder. We had planned to leave after a few songs but unfortunately I had lost my shoe during MV's second song so had to stick it out. Feeder weren't too bad just not, as you say, our cup of tea. Also Grant took the huff and restarted a song halfway through after someone threw a pint at him.
Not my first gig, though, which - not counting various boybands - was REM at Stirling Castle for the Up tour. I still listen to them now and then, never been a huge fan but it was a fantastic show.
Great gig, great setting, Stipe is a brilliant frontman!
they played really well too.
MV seem to be better than ever nowadays, their live shows are flawless (shame they don't do that many!)
i've not really listened to them, so i don't know.
I still listen to hour of bewilderbeast very occasionally
Rialto supported....and yes I'm quite fond of both of those bands!
Newport Sports Centre, November 1988
Yes / Yes / Nooooo
Cardiff International Arena in 1993 or 1994. Sometimes only Bat Out Of Hell will do, even now.
Then I started gig-going properly with The Boo Radleys in Cardiff student's union in 1995. I'll always have a soft spot for the Boos.
Wembley,Bad tour.with parents.yes
Half man Half Biscuit with mates.New cross Venue 1991 ish?YES
Squeeze - when i was about 11 with my uncle, and yep, still listen occasionally.
Macc Lads - first gig with mates..and haven't listened to them for years.
Would not be averse to putting a bit of Motherly Love on from time to time.
no and no
Aston Villa Leisure Centre, Birmingham, May 1995.
The How To Make Friends And Influence People tour.
Haven't listened to them in years, and Tequila is a bit cheesy, but really fancy putting them on now. All together now..."Alice, what's the matter? Alice, what's the matter?!"
Kinda, first album is still v.good
At Wolverhampton Civic Centre when I was 11. Live through this tour- Courtney Love spat in my mate's older sister's hair.
June 1995 - Wembley Stadium
and fuck yes.
at the MEN (then NYNEX?) in 1997 or something. I thoroughly enjoyed it! I never listen to him, but still have a soft spot for tunes off his first two albums.
First proper band I saw were Gomez a few months later. They were fucking ace. Listened to Bring It On for the first time in ages last week and absolutely loved it. Tijuana Lady - what a song!
...and hell yes
and suppose so, haven't given them much attention for years.
I've seen melee live they are incredible, very impressive. Also a girl called Amy Kuney, she gives really funny stories if you look her up and she's doing a show where you live she is definitely worth your time. I saw the Killers live once and they had a really good set. Gnarls Barkley was incredible, I will never forget seeing them live. They dressed up as if they were school children, hilarious. Finally, I've enjoyed Adrina Thorpe she has a very chill set and she is a doll.
Crawley Leisure Centre, NO
first band = the prodigy glasgow barrowlands dec 1992 - fuck no
i love early prodgiy ie the ep and experience ... but it was all downhill from then on
Don't mind em. My tastes have matured somewhat.
- not as much as i did then, other than the holy bible!
I went for QOTSA.
Never listened to Motorhead, Angels and Airwaves, or Juliette and the Licks.
Should listen to FF and QOTSA more.
David Byrne - Yes
Dinosaur Jr. - Yes.
Every concert I've been to.
Red Kross - yes
The Cult - yes
Sheep On Drugs - yes
Paps took me to see him when i was about 11 I think. Never really got into him untill a few years later though. Couldn't understand a word he said between songs except the swearing but i remember being impressed by his guitar style.
First with friends was Feeder being supported by Muse at the Garage in Glasgow. Can't say I listen to either of them now but it was funny to see Muse go from scared wee boys into massive rock stars in the space of 3 or 4 years
@ The Astoria, with my brother. The rakes were supporting. Still like them, altough not as much as i did with there first album.
and I still listen to both of them a bit.
at the The Windsor Old Trout when I was 14. Awesome. Still love 'em.
and erm.... no and no.
At Portsmouth Pyramids. As if that wasn't bad enough, i believe Workhorse Movement and Sona Fariq were supporting. ENough to put me off music forever.
at Manchester Roadhouse in 2000, think all are defunct now. I saw Llama Farmers there too, like three days later, ah yeah!
SRC, here in detroit. I guess I still kinda like them as a curio. I didn't really like them all that much back then, I was more into MC5 & Stooges.
coz my parents took me to festivals since i was 6 months old. So Technically The Cure...
but the first band i remember saving my pocket money to go and see not at a festival would be.... Spunge/Sum 41. i'm not sure which was first coz they were the same week. and i would say "no" but i can imagine if someone put "kicking pigeons" on a grin would spread right over my face! ... that would of been year 5... so... 10? excellent.
I think the first gig I went to was a "lilit" (german band) gig and I still like them!
went to see them at nottingham in febuary
and yes i do still really like them and listen to them
