going for bjork.
and am especially please that Jamie Lidell appears to be supporting.
is that a new TiHatC song?
are they playing tonight?
if not at the club then at Steve's house?
sorry to everyone who had the misfortune of actually being there. not that there were that many of them, like.
shame the sound man didnt really actually know what he was doing or owt.
loads of feednback?
dj put on NOW 26 while fucjk buttons where playing?
repeatedly cut out.
after the bands finished, i was djing and realised that the amps had been on full volume and constantly peaking, and then the limiters had cut out, because the soundman had nary a clue about the equipment.
We limped through our set, the last two had to quit. :(
that's not good spamjagging is it?
In other news I've made some notes on the new interpol album on the music board.
that is no good
sorry to hear that
Ha. Apparently the sound problems were due to none of the bands playing real instruments.
"a guy that looked like Napoleon Dynamite, even down to the hair, glasses and facial expression"
is so rubbish. i'm sorry that it was a shit gig, probably to the bands more than anyone. seriously, you shouldn't even think about putting on a show if you can't organise the night properly. fucking awful excuses for the sound, it just shows a complete lack of knowledge and respect for the bands. i mean blaming poor sound on their instruments just takes the piss. hmm this has really annoyed me and i wasn't even there!
the night was put on by utmusic from the boards. he did a fanstastic job of putting together a real event with a strong line up, ace touches like free food and lots of balloons, and looked after and paid the bands very well. its not his fault that the venue's soundman had no idea about his own amplifiers
noted. sorry for the rant. i think i'm more annoyed at the posts on that other board. hmmmmm
all that crap about 'proper instruments' is ridiculous.
BANDS ARE DIFFERENT
ie - if you don't have the right set up (or soundman) to cope with unconventional instruments then the venue should not be putting them on
poor old utmusic!
i mean, those bands wouldn't be making the sounds they are making with different equipment, and some people love those sounds.
i worded that pretty awfully too.
are clearly pricks with no appreciation for other people's tastes
there are grimsby music forums?
thats kinda what i was saying
Im starting a spoon orchestra.
No it's true venues should be able to handle all different instruments conventional or otherwise. Theres so many different bands out there it doesnt amke sense to be a venue that only caters for a few.
That forum is abismal really 'Oh and that silly little gherkin that kept jumping up and down and proceeded to start hitting a drum with his hand: LOL'
sounds pretty fun to me :P
you were a sexy little ghurka.
than a boring fuckwit complaining about a lack of a bassist.
Music should be fun if you want to jump around and hit a drum with your hand do it at least you'll be having fun.
People on that messageboard are the kind of peopel I ahte to se at gigs.
mansfield town mill was similar, but sound was great there.
think there was about 8 people left in from the 50-odd than came through the door by the end of fuck buttons, although the crowd was quite young and mainly there for local support.
it even made being stuck in Doncaster for an hour and half worth it! - so that's a testament.
It didn't exactly go to plan, but Junkplanet were really good, and what I did see of Fuck Buttons was amazing. Dancing to Talking Heads was awesome too :D
Really nice to see everybody too.
i am really glad that i'm a scene wanker and silly little gherkin and attention seeker.
Everybody who was there is wonderful. Laser Quest was hilarious. The cake was sticky. And today was lovely too. YAY!
i didnt eat fish, and ended up just gorging on haribo and freddo and smarty eggs and banana cake and apple cake and white lightning, and thus feeling beyond poorly
got to work at about 1:20
It was all I ate all day. But there was enough. The shortbread was ace :D
i must look really ungrateful now :( i really really appreciate those who came to this. i totally didn't take advantage of having all of my favourite people in one room and i feel rubbish now.
sorry if i was particularly twatty/arsey with anyone.
Gazzy B totally knows
probably to the music too, but mainly the siberia thing,
