Anyone up for this?
I know this doesn't really answer your question, I just wanted to share the excitement! Can't wait for this gig!
its going to be great. looking forward to despot too, hes a wee monster
i should say. fucked that right up
Full of neds, surprisingly.
maybe I'll find some money on the floor at Festival No.6, fingers crossed
any left? I'm going to try and swap my work shift that evening.
haven't listened to the new one much, but I love 'Fantastic Damage'.
about £15 once you've paid booking and postage. It's in Academy 3, which is one of my favourite Manchester venues.
saw James Bourne there last year OH GOD
Got a long journey home so need to bring provisions
If any bands I see in future don't include at least two keytar solos in their set I'm walking.
Did I miss much?
but what were the stage times roughly last night?
As was said above, worth getting there to see Despot. He put on a good show and was very funny and self-deprecating. He also came on wearing his Christmas jumper, and led everyone through his on tour aerobics routine.
El-P was brilliant. Sounded loud and dirty, and his band and hype man were ace. He seemed genuinely pleased to be here when he bid farewell at the end.
He was a big lad wasn't he?
But he was HUGE! Proper stacked, George Elokobi style (http://bit.ly/NAChT9). Didn't really dawn on me until he was stood next to Despot, who looked tiny in comparison.
it was fucking brilliant. few gigs leave me speechless, however that one truly did :D
i met despot and he lied to my face and told me his album is coming out next year ;) and i got a signed el-p album.
the hype man spitting out the chorus sample sounded like a machine gun (or there was a machine gun sample too). Loads better than the album version
that is all
