Long Time, Nae Post ….

As usual with stuff like Bebo, there’s an initial enthusiasm, lots of activity and then things kinda dry up … it was my enthusiasm that dried up, not the lack of things to post about !!!!

I’m not going to fill in all the blanks from the past few months (who cares?, Ed.) … but to summarise the musical highlights I’ve not posted about:

Connect Festival:

Fantastic … aside from the mud, the walk from the car park to the camp site, the mud, the excessive alcohol and, er, the mud !!!

Stormin sets included The Jesus & Mary Chain, Beastie Boys, Mogwai, Echo & the Bunnymen, Teenage Fanclub, Rio Kiley, CSS and Aereogramme’s last ever set.

They say The Cure and My Bloody Valentine for next year ….. what Mud ????

Ian Brown @ Caird Hall, Dundee:

He can’t sing ... he can’t … but he’s Ian Brown … great gig !!!

The Wedding Present @ Fubar, Stirling:

The best band in the history of the world tour again and this time celabrate 20 years since the release of their George Best album. Mid set, they played “George Best” all the way through … ah the memories !!!

The Fratellis @ AECC, Aberdeen:

Average ….

The Foo Fighters @ AECC, Aberdeen:

Gig of the year so far, Grohl’s a showman alright … and I think he genuinly enjoyed himself !!!

Planned gigs for the rest of 2007:

  • Kings of Leon @ AECC, Aberdeen
  • Manic Street Preachers at The Music Hall, Aberdeen
  • Ian Brown @ AECC, Aberdeen

Those are 3 nights in a row !!!!

Then Arctic Monkeys AECC, Aberdeen on 14 AND 15 December !!!!
