Eagerly awaiting my tickets to see the Descendents at Shepherds Bush next month.

Who are you going to see next?

I'm curious/nosey ;)

Think I'll be there for the Underworld gig, also the 100 Club thang in April.

Will try to rustle up some other grizzled SE London punks to come along, too.

...which I have done.

Have persuaded (not that it was an effort or nuffin) Tom from The Phobics + his luvverly missus and one or two others (work and/or babysitter commitments permitting) to come along, one of whom is picking up the tickets this Monday.

Work and football rules me out of all the other dates, sadly.

Really looking forward to March 29. Haven't been to The Underworld in ages, not since I last saw the Hanson Brothers there I think, and I really like the venue. It's a sweaty little cave of a place and for me, the gig can't come soon enough.

It's gonna be great  :)

A collection of tracks by a band called Warm Widow that a DJ from Salford City Radio sent me, knowing that Sonic Youth/Fall/Big Black/Girls Against Boys soundalikey bands appeal to the Slaughterboy lugholes. A very bass-driven 3-piece.

It is good.

Just one more thought...why didn't Misty In Roots get a mention? As Brittish reggae bands go, a giant, up there with Steel Pulse, Aswad and UB40, surely?

An odd ommission, I think  ???

Take an Overground train to London Victoria station, change to a District or Circle Line tube to Embankment then change to a Northern Line tube to Camden. Venue is just outside the station. Travel time is about 90 minutes I'd guess. There are other ways to get to and from the venue, but the train is direct to Victoria and the last train back leaves Victoria at 00.07, meaning less worry about missing the last train and more time with TV and TUTS, which has got to be a good thing!

Difficult. Toss up between MC5 and The Stooges. I've made a decision:

The New York Dolls!  :D

There isn't a band mentioned here that I don't like less than 'A Lot', but I reckon it's got to be the Dolls.

Got to add The Monks, The Sonics, Paul Revere and The Raiders, The Standells and The Chocolate Watchband to the list of those previously mentioned as well. Early Love and Velvet Underground, too.

A great weekend of stuff.

Highlight for me was the Rocksteady documentary, which was a delight to listen to and view. I went to Jamaica nearly 20 years ago and it reminded me how much I liked the place. Pretty funny too. The Specials 'Rock Goes To College' from 1979 was great, too. Looks a bit dated from the first time I saw it in '79 but, to be fair, so do I. Found the Barbican stuff a bit disappointing to be honest.

The Pistols I s'pose.

Had big punk rock love affairs with The Damned, The Clash, Siouxsie & The Banshees, The Stranglers, Wire, Stiff Little Fingers and Karen Davis of Chelsfield Road (a girl and her address, not a band - I bought a Wire single from her at the shop she worked at as a Saturday girl and fell in love with her. Me, stupid, dumped her after 6 months. Her, gorgeous, went on to become a model and a British Airways stewardess. But I digress...) but always got a bit bored with those bands, which I never did with the Pistols or The Adverts.

So...yeah: Sex Pistols

Anyone coming to Shoreham??????

Touch and go at the moment - probably won't know til last minute, but I reckon I'll be there  :)

Bugger!  :(

Have a family birthday do to attend in SE London tonight, which rules out Shoreham.

Gerry (for it is he) is 75 and, whilst I'm sure he'd be ok with me not showing up at his little surprise bash, others (Mrs. Slaughterboy to the fore) would not be.

I'll have to make do with amusing myself looking at Gerry's latest home-made Marxist joke t-shirts.

They're pretty good, y'know  ;)

Whilst driving about this week:

Death By Sexy - Eagles Of Death Metal: Brainless rawk
Pinkerton - Weezer: Not generally liked by Weezer geeks...not that I care!
Everything Falls Apart And More - Husker Du: Lovely compilation of early singles and b-sides
Boston Hardcore - Various: Mission Of Burma, Negative FX, The FU's etc. Goofy fun
Grinderman 2 - Grinderman: More grumbly stuff from the beardy weirdys and dodgy 'taches
Crossing The Red Sea With The Adverts - The Adverts: And why not?
Untitled demo lp - The Phobics: New lp from Deptford's answer to the question 'Who are these ugly old gits. And why are they bothering to play anywhere other than a dank cellar with no lights and adequate sound-proofing'

Excuse my gig memory but, the older you get...I'm sure you'll all understand and forgive.

I've definitely seen him at a pub in East London - Walthamstow I think
The Metro Club on Oxford Street
The Ruts film thing at Shepherds Bush
A brief set at the Crossfields Festival in Deptford
Then the two New Cross gigs and the Scream Lounge one recently

A magnificent seven!

The problem is...I'm sure there's more, but the fact that I've bumped into TV and Gaye at other gigs confuses me into not remembering which venues I've met him at and those I've seen him play at. I think I saw him at The Metro twice and The 100 Club as well.

I blame beer, me ::)
