I'm going as is my girlfriend. Anyone else coming?
They're kinda like a crappy version of Radio 4, aren't they?
They only got attention because they were from new york.
and had disco beats.
shitdisco are a bit like them though, yeah...
but yeah, I'm not expecting too much from this gig, it should be a laugh, dancing is fun!
someone mentioned this last week and the whole night sounds pretty good but i am suffering after playing football today, pitch like concrete = lots of cuts on legs, really sodding hurts :(
but am pub quizzing. do you guys know the scotchman, just out of idle interest?
or do you mean the scotchman and his pack on st michaels hill?
if so, yes, I had lunch there once
I think they might be from my neck of the words. I vaguely remember seeing them at an indie-club night a couple of months back. I was a little drunk, but they annoyed me a canny bit. That's not really very helpful, is it?
Fuck knows why I assumed they were from my way. Geordie pride I guess. We're always trying to steal bands from other cities. Just ask Maximo Park and the Futureheads.
the sweaty bassist slimed me!!
i'll tell you all about it tomorrow.
1st band were the bloody tourists, they made some nice garagey noise and had some awesome riffs. Also had great nonsense lyrics (in the mould of mclusky)
2nd band were the advocate generals - catchy smiths-esque pop from well attired young-looking guys. I have 'famous for five minutes stuck in my head now.
The name of this band is SHITDISCO it it pronounced SHITDISCO. Funky as all hell, disco punk stuff with 2 bassists!! Their single appears to be just about their worst song, it its still pretty great live.
but I'd definitely go see them again.
I hear they're playing at moribund's club soon, though that might not be true
