I've hated Evan Dando ever since he was was a couple of hours late for his set at Glastonbury and made us sit through an entire set despite the fact that all the Dando fans had buggered off assuming he wasn't going to show and everyone was there to see Portishead who were desperate to come on.

Glad to hear it. I was less tolerant in those days obviously.
I'm tempted to go to see Cat Power, it's in May I think isnt it? Should check with the Gav and see if he'll let me come along.

What do you think the rest of their album is like? Q said everything apart from "Get Over It" was rubbish and that their singer's voice sounded awful on most of the rest of the album.

If there's no Brighton date, Martin, I'd be up for going if you're interested

Cool, I'll investigate. Find out what night Gavin's going and crash his party. He won't mind.
Think it's Shepherd's Bush (room to stay if you like - just don't do a Skin Up and disappear half-way through the night).

There isn't. They're playing Leicester and London and returning to London on 20th June or thereabouts.
Best album this year for me, at present.

May 12 - I've got seats upstairs, as I'm old and refined, now. You can meet Sally, who I know from the Bergman season (took your advice eventually). If I could be in two places at once, I'd also be at the Lyric watching Howe Gelb. Cruelly, the same night I'm seeing Yo La Tengo (May 7), Smog are on elsewhere.

Chan Marshall's back in town on June 20 at the Union Chapel with Damien Jurado.

Surprised none of the old stagers are getting excited about Springsteen at Crystal Palace on May 26-7 or Neil Young in Hammersmith on the 18-19. Or Ray Davies at the RFH on the 16. Or Lou Reed at the Barbican on the 28, come to that - probably only doing this 'Raven' thing, though.

Mogwai might be worth a look (Scala, May 22)

He had "problems" in those days, didn't he?

Should have read this thread earlier. Just ordered the album off cdwow, in anticipation of being in the UK shortly to collect the post. If I'd known I could scrounge it off El Aguila, I wouldn't have bothered!

May 12th good for me (as if I'd be busy on a Monday). Upstairs or downstairs would tempt me. Hmm, Sally, eh? Is she a freak or normal? Nookiebear / anyone else for that matter: Give me the word and I'll phone through for some tickets.

I think it's a fun album. True, it's not mindblowing musically, but it just has a good feel to it. Try and check out "Don't Ask Me" and "Your So Damm Hot" to get my drift.

The Vines London Astoria 23/04/03

The Vines opened up their short tour by playing their postponed NME gig last night.

As with the other NME gigs there were two support bands. The first was a band that I had not heard of called The Stands. I was quite impressed with their sound which was mainly guitar based and had elements of Tom Petty/Thrills/La's. Very tuneful and they went down very well with the crowd, especially when they played an mainly instrumental number that showed how together they were. One to watch!

Next, it was Rocket Science. There have been murmours of great things, but I have to say that I found them pretty bland. The frontman's dramatic playing of the theremin on top of the speakers reminded me of the monolith scene in 2001 and didn't do anything for me. One long number was based on the riff from "Foxy Lady" and I'm sure half the audience thought it was the Hendrix classic as the vocals were so inauduble.My daughter, however, liked them and bought their EP which we listened to on the way home but it still left me flat.

So, after a short break, on strolled The Vines and just ripped the place apart.

Craig Nicholls is one of those frontmen that can come across as a Rock God or a complete jerk depending on your point of view. Well, it's the former for me. Only Casey Chaos comes close with the same on-stage intensity.

They played a number of new tracks which indicate a strong follow up to "Highly Evolved". In between they played most of my favourites in between much on stage mayhem. The notable ommission was the brilliant "1969". However, in it's place, they played a new song "F the World" as an encore which was an epic. It could only end in another bout of stage destruction and didn't disappoint. Craig dived into the drums, threw his guitar and managed to clumsily knock the amps over. This was a great Spinal Tap moment as he lost his balance completely and toppled right over with only his legs waving in the air behind the heap of equipment.

My gripes? Firstly the set was only just over an hour. Secondly, there were a handful of slam dancers who were really trying to cause injury and mayhem to all around them. The security guys really needed to get in there and to pull them out. Finally, when the band finshed their set, the audience were strangely subdued. I suspect that this was from exhaustion after they had ripped the roof off with a thunderous version of "Get Free".

There are still tickets available for Brixton. It wasn't sold out last night either and the touts took a hammering (10 a ticket) Thoroughly recommended, one of the best live bands around - don't miss it!.
