Fuji Heavy

Fuji Heavy rocked the Pavilion Tavern last night. I'm getting to know their songs now, and they have some really good ones in their set. Don't think they've got any gigs coming up, but there's a free demo CD available.

It's must be Nick Cave

Well, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds were great again last night at Brixton Academy. They played a few more old ones, including Mercy Seat, Stagger Lee, Deanna and Weeping Song. All very, very good indeed. Mercury Rev were supporting, and they were good, but they didn't play very long. New single sounded good live though. Now, where can I go and see them next Wednesday...?

Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds at Hastings Pier

One word - awesome. What a great band the Bad Seeds are, and what an amazing performer Nick Cave is. So good to see a gig at a different sort of venue too. Maybe people will start using Hastings Piers more now for gigs. Nick Cave next week at Brixton should be great, and apparently Mercury Rev might be supporting. And the Go! Team should be playing Brighton on 1 Dec at Po Na Na - my gig cup runneth over!

A tale of two gigs

I went to two gigs this weekend - one was Rufus Wainwright at the Dome, the other was Chimp at the Marlborough Theatre.

Rufus Wainwright was really excellent - a great performer with excellent songs and a great band. Chimp were also excellent, in a very low key way. They've got a new guitarist since I last saw them, who was good. Wish they'd played 'Hope, don't chase it down' though.
