TV Live / Kendal
« on: March 10, 2005, 01:27:28 PM »
Excellent gig last night when we eventually found the venue. Quite a nice little bar, and a good turnout. Gary Lammin did a surprise support slot which was very good. TV told me America had gone really well with attendances of around 400 for most gigs. He came on at just before 10, and treated us to a long set of around 1 hour 40 mins consisting of; 1 Flavour/Not a Bad Day/No Time to be 21/Not in my Name/British Mistake/ March of the Giants/New Church/Lords Prayer/Immortal Rich/Expensive Being Poor/ What If/Small Rewards/2nd Class Citizen/My Place/Safety in Numbers/ Tomohawk Cruise/Driver or Passenger/Lion and the Lamb/ Future Used to be Better/Generation Y/Runaway Train Driver/Poem/ Gary Gilmore/Bored Teenagers/Wonders/Big Fish/We Know What You Want/ Good Times Are Back.
I listened to the Cast of Thousands CD on the way home which sounds a hell of a lot better, and is a great buy with the sessions CD and booklet. I hope Paul and Carl get a good turnout tonight in Blackpool.

I'll travel over from N Yorks for one or the other. Wish I could do both, but I need some cash for 999/Buzzcocks in Manchester the night after Poulton.

Got my ticket this morning- Sunday certainly is the best day. Goldblade are definitely worth seeing and DON'T miss The Avengers. Shame The Vibrators aren't on this year.

Hope you all got back OK.Nice to meet TJ, Alan, and Chris again, and I also briefly met Deal Dave and C5. I was very pleased for TJ that there was such a good turn out. Richard and TV were brilliant. Off to work now-well done TJ.

Excellent gig in London yeserday. I arrived in time for The Vibrators who played a great set (they did some different 'old' songs too, like Bad Time, and 24 Hour People). Then came Chelsea- all old stuff apart from 1 song I didn't recognise. I enjoyed seeing them again but October is still as irritating as he always was. 999 were as good as usual. They always go down a storm at these gigs, and did so again. Missed the Subs but was back to see TV, who was great of course and went down very well. Shame he was only allowed 20 minutes. Set list;
No Time To Be21/Not In My Name/New Church/Lords Prayer/Poem/Gary Gilmore's Eyes/Xmas Bloody Xmas/One Chord Wonders
Next on were The Avengers (who were The Pistol's support band at Winterland). This was their first UK tour so no one knew what to expect, and they stole the show with a brilliant set. Make sure you see them if they ever come back. The pub seemed a better option than Hazel O' Connor (no proper beer in the venue), but I caught the first half of Sham 69 before I had to go for my train. They were very disappointing, the guitar sounded awful and the new stuff (or the stuff I wasn't familiar with) was crap. Obviously I didn't get to see the Damned, but if they were as bad they were the last time I saw them I'm not fussed. I had a quick chat with TV, who told me the Sunderland and Newcastle gigs went very well, particularly Newcastle. Hope to see some of you in Leeds tonight. Can't wait.

Sadly I'll miss ATV thanks to the train times( although I'm releived TV isn't on first), but The Vibes,Chelsea, and 999 one after another will be good. Then there's time to eat before TV comes on. The Avengers should be interesting too.

TV Live / Trouble
« on: August 02, 2004, 08:08:09 PM »
I've never seen any trouble at any of the Morecambe ones, and the West End area is fine. Blackpool was a different story though. There were loads of yobs coming out of clubs threatening the people leaving the Winter Gardens. Someone was stabbed on the first night and you had to keep your eyes open going back to the B&B. Nick from 999 was unfortunate enough to disturb a gang kicking a blokes head in. They turned on him and he had to leg it into the venue. Morecambe's much more friendly and there are no tossers on stag dos to avoid.

Great weekend started off with The Creeps who were very good (liked Jenny's outfit). Other highlights from friday were Lurkers, Hazel O Connor (suprisingly),Wreckless Eric,and SLF (didn't know Eddie Large sang for them!). Chas and Dave were shite. Saturday was brilliant; The Briefs (who I knew about), the excellent Turbo ACs (who I didn't), Goldblade, plus solo sets from Arturo (typical Arthur), Nick Cash (1st time for him but he did a good job),then TV's excellent set which contained 2 songs I hadn't heard before.Tim told me one was new and the other an old demo,but theywere both up to his usual standard. Caught a bit of the Street Dogs who sounded pretty good, then my mates 999 did the business again, some new stuff would be nice though. 5 minutes before they were due on stage there was no sign of Arthur, then he appeared looking the worse for wear. He was fine once the music started though.Wasn't too keen on MDC or Hazel O unplugged.
Decided that the Beat might be a better option than the adicts (so would suicide) and couldn't believe how good they were. Never seen them before, but they were awesome and get my vote for band of the festival.

Sunday wasmuch better than last year, met TV, Gaye, plus a few tuts in the acoustic room and watched Eastfield, John Robb, and Knox. Later it was the Vibrators in the Dome,who were very good, and then a storming set by TV with the Creeps, who did as good a job as 1977 last year. We got a couple of extra songs too, with the Rejects cancelling. After that I saw Chumbawamba unplugged, who were so bad I could scarcely believe my ears. Then I watched Discharge who were rubbish and sounded like The Exploited on a bad night.
Great to meet Alan, Chris,Lari,Jock, TJ amongst others,and the  weekend was a lot more enjoyable because of it. Hope to meet you again one day.

I expected to have to leg it down the prom to the Carleton to see TV and The Vibrators. The HITS website now shows the Dome as the venue. Apologies if you already knew this. The Cockney Rejects are headlining, they were god awful 3 years ago.

TV Live / Newcastle Free Festival 30th May 2004

things didn't look too good when I arrived, it was raining and there was hardly anyone there with most people sheltering in the beer tent (excellent local brew called Wylam was on sale). The beer tent was fenced off from the rest of the site meaning if you had a pint, you couldn't get within 30 yards of the stage. Anyway, a few familiar faces turned up, it stopped raining,and TV played a storming 25 minute set. the sound was really good too. Best bits for me were hearing 'ghost' for the first time, and the brilliant 'not in my name'. Shame the geordies didn't support the event better, but those that were there loved it.
