I completely forgot I had a ticket for this until yesterday.
8.45-9.15pm Teeth Of The Sea
I think I'm just getting there for 9:30 then, I'm off the booze and have True Blood to catch up with.
and oneida were amazing. as our grizzly show is sold out i have no qualms in saying anyone not going to grizzly or oneida fails at life.
Sell it to me Summers!
I hate describing music, but basically they were really good last night and you should see them.
or just pay on the door (which will cost a quid or so more)
in time for Teeth Of The Sea
Teeth Of The Sea are ace.
Worth going to see...and is it me or does the keyboard/guitar player look like a baby?
Oneida were good mostly but didn't really enjoy the noodly bits that went on forever. And it was surprisingly not very busy.
A lot of new material was played which frankly isn't as instant as some of their back catalogue but still I enjoyed myself.
The set did go into a bit of a lull when the other guitarist joined them for 2 songs.
Sorry for vanishing, I went for a sit down. I am old.
of the mighty Bevis Frond. He also runs the pub quiz at the Mucky Pup in Islington.
I thought the gig was great. Sound was a bit muddy, and there was no sheets of Easter, but everything else was brilliant.
had a thoroughly good time. great to end on up with people and people of the north too. was sweating thoroughly afterwards.
oneida also remarkably cured me of a lost voice and onset of head cold. they have healing powers.
I don't feel so bad about missing them tonight if they're not playing that. Sadly, that was one of my main reasons for going.
they still play Sheets Of Easter - in fact they encored with it in Manchester last Sunday - just not at every gig
here's a version from Primavera Sound festival in May, which was wild:
last time Oneida played the Garage in 2001 they actually opened with Sheets Of Easter (which had yet to be released on disc) and i clearly remember half the audience left
i was working at Time Out back then (years and years before i joined Jagjaguwar) and we had a letter of complaint the next week because the magazine had recommended the gig!
so it's both heartening and somewhat ironic that many people seem to regard Sheets as their signature jam:
and thought all the new stuff sounded really good.
Still have to buy 'Rated O' but they were selling the CD version for 20 quid last night. I'm all for supporting artist by buying directly, but that was a bit too steep for my liking.
so i doubt he'll be looking.
Just arrived. Result.
