Noon at Rough Trade, 6pm at Pure Groove. I really want to be able to say I won't be at both, but I'm not sure I can guarantee that.
well, i'm genuinly shocked that no-one else added to this thread. i kinda thought he might be a bit of a dis fave but maybe i know shit.
well i went to KCLSU to see the support, knowing absolutely nothing about A WK himself. fucking ace night, proper good. if you want a review then read my blog.
I've got so much time for anyone who gets their nose broken four songs from the end of their set but simply responds by partying even harder.
I'm a shell of a man this morning.
Ben Patashnik and I DJ'd. Thanks if you sang along to our fine selection of Dad rock hits, nu-metal and TV theme tunes
PS. What was the opening support all about?!
Did I miss anything major? Arriving to hearing a man starting to get booed was quite an entrance.
you missed an idiot with plant pot on his head combining boring noise with substandard breaks. i do need to know his name in case i accidentally buy a ticket for a gig that he's supporting at again. truly dreadful.
i echo your thoughts. looking on youtube i can see he used to have a band. fun but not my thing.
last night no band, just the cheesiest eurodisco backing track that you can imagine, a keyboard (he can play!) and a nutjob. And anything up to another 100 people on stage kissing and hugging him and providing extra backing vocals.
To what extent is he "my kinda thing"? 0/10
To what extent is he pushing musical boundaries? 0/10
Would I buy a ticket based on an unemotional description of his act? 0/10
Did I have fun? 10/10
Would I see him again? 10/10
for playing dont stop believin' at the end?! literally cannot think a better way to end such an amazing party! best monday evening ever.
Glad you enjoyed it as much as we did. Andrew emailed this morning to say he was a fan of the song choice too!
Rollin' was also an inspired choice! Good times.
is this joker still on the go? although not my bag at all, i like this man. i remember seeing him on the nme tour years ago and he was literally destroying his body, what a legend.
I met him shortly prior to this show in Pizza Express. According to the waitress he'd been interrupted three times. She didn't know who he was, nor understand my admittedly convoluted explanation. I did have fun in Pizza Express though, which was nice.
He wasn't WK's ridiculous protege/thing Bad Brilliance, was he?
I don't think the support was WK-related. Can't remember his name either now, which doesn't help the situation!
