From the homepage:

Roddy Hart welcomes them to the show to perform an intimate gig for an invited audience and talks to guitarist Stuart Braithwaite.

The singer, who turns 60 on Christmas Day, will be joined by Nick Cave, Bobby Gillespie of Primal Scream, Cerys Matthews, Clem Burke of Blondie, Glen Matlock of the Sex Pistols and more for a special concernt in Ireland in the new year.

Tickets are now on sale for Perspectives: Shane MacGowan 60th Birthday Celebration takes place on January 15 at the National Concert Hall in Dublin.

Also joining the line up are up-and-coming Limerick band Whenyoung, who were hand-picked by MacGowan to perform.

Well I did make it to the Godfathers' show last night!  :)
It was a rough day, very cold. When I arrived, quite a few people were there already at "Goldmarks" pub. Most of them looked how I felt: old and tired...  :o
Anyway, once The Godfathers started with "This is war", any tiredness was blown away by their sheer energy! "If I only had time" followed, one of my faves.
(Anyone who says he/she likes guitar-based rock'n'roll music, but does not like the Godfathers, must be DEAF!)
They really rocked the house and played many old hits like "Love is dead" next to the new ones - most of these, in my opinion, are as good as the old ones, especially "Till my heart stops". In one case I recognised a song but didn't know the title and thought "must be from early 90s", until I realised it was one from the new album ("One good reason")!
Peter Coyne said they liked Germany (with the notable exception of "Fritz cola" - well I hardly ever drink any cola, so I don't really know the difference), he also commented a few late arrivals with a nice "missed the best songs", ha ha.  ;D
Last song before the encore was "Birth School Work Death", last encore was a cover of "Blitzkrieg Bop"!

Of course, this being a Saturday, there was a "disco" afterwards, so I was on my way home already before 11pm - after a short chat with promoter Micha, who told me that he needs to find new venues for weekends, as it is often the problem that there is a "curfew" because of disco after the bands (when he has 2 bands playing it will be difficult to be finished by 11)...  ::)

Steve Lamacq returns to Maida Vale for an annual Christmas party, and this year we're painting the holiday season punk. The Damned will be performing live from the legendary Maida Vale studios, ahead of their huge tour in 2018. They'll be joined by fellow punk pioneers Ruts DC, who'll be providing us with a second blistering live performance. Brix Smith Start, ex-member of The Fall, is behind the decks, spinning some classic punk tunes in between sets. And we'll be joined by football legend Stuart Pearce, who'll be telling us about his devotion to punk.

Listen to Motörhead frontman Lemmy Kilmister's final solo recording, "We Are the Ones," a collaboration with guitarist Chris Declercq

Declercq met Kilmister in 2005 after he moved from his native Switzerland to Hollywood and approached the Motörhead singer at the Sunset Strip's Rainbow Bar and Grill. He gave him a copy of a demo CD and the two musicians eventually worked together on "We Are the Ones," which features Josh Freese (A Perfect Circle, Guns N' Roses) on drums and co-producer Martin Guigui on synth. They began tracking it with co-producer Cameron Webb in 2014 at Paramount Studios and Kilmister recorded the bass part in March 2015; they did a final mix this past January.


And confirmed by Richard himself now via FB
All I can say is the rumors are true - MOREAU is headed for television, the only platform on which we have any chance of realizing an R-rated epic with a six hour run time - but it's early days yet. The project is not a remake or reboot of the 1995 version but an entirely fresh adaptation with all-new creatures and more than a few surprises in store for long term island watchers. I have been contracted as principal writer with a first refusal on directing the projected show, so it falls to me to do as the Chacma baboon man demands and "MAK THEE ISLAND GRAT AGIN!!!' We're still at a scripting / preparatory stage and given the complexity of the project its fair to say it will be at least a couple more journeys around the sun before we can start locking down cast. In the meantime I welcome your suggestions. To date Moreau has been played by Charles Laughton, Burt Lancaster and Marlon Brando. What thespians do we have available to us now in the 21st century who are truly capable of stepping into those god-like shoes and making the part their own? Answers in a hat. The only thing I can tell you is we probably won't be going out to Val this time round...
