Re: 2000 Trees 2014

I forgot to post some 2000 Trees related articles from my free online magazine 'BEHIND THE SCENE GLOUCESTERSHIRE.' Here's a link to some old photos from some of the earlier years (features Jim Lockey & The Solemn Sun, Subways etc) http://issuu.com/gloszine/docs/btsg9/40 Then here's a link to a revie...

Re: Wanted: 2011 Frank Turner & Franz Nicolay poster £50

Sorry, I can't help, but I remember that tour. The Gloucester gig was one of the best I've seen Frank play. Here is the set list for anyone that was there: The road Dan's song try this at home journey of the magi long live the queen i knew prufrock before he was famous take you home photosynthesis l...

Re: UK TOUR!!

Part of what gets my goat, and I know it's redundant in some ways, is the whole "waaa you never play in..." (insert town name). 9 times out of 10, I've played there 15 times in the last 10 years, people just missed it. Grr. My love affair with Billy Bragg was so intense in the days you played Coven...

Re: 2000 Trees 2014

I feel like an arse for always just posting words, then leaving, so sorry. But anyway, here's my review of 2000 trees, with plenty of your favourites mentioned. http://justdip.co.uk/2014/07/15/a-review-of-2000-trees-2014/ Out of the 22 bands you saw we only saw 2 the same (Ben Marwood & Frightened ...

Re: Bricks - Venues closing down.

Yeah, I saw Brand New in the Charlotte in Leicester.

So many venues have closed since I've been going to gigs in the last 15 years. I could count at least 10 in my town (Cheltenham) alone.

They announced it on their Facebook page over a week or so stage by stage I think.

Re: 2000 Trees 2014

I'll be there. Been every year since 2009 (except 2012 when I saw Springsteen in London instead). I only live 20 minutes away so I normally drive back and forth all 3 days as I have work on Thursday/Friday too. Last year I froze bottles of water and took them with me each day - I walked around with ...

Re: By request

I think that Less Than Jake used to spin a wheel. That's a good idea.

Re: Flogging Molly Cruise 2015

I guess what you have to remember is that whoever is organising the thing needs to sell tickets for it to go ahead. If they have 2000 tickets to sell and they wait to 'give people a chance,' then that might not ever come. If only a few hundred tickets had been sold with a month or so left because pe...

When I saw the Pogues several years ago, Shane MacGowan was helped off the stage by a roadie about every 3 songs for a fag and a no doubt a drink too. That's the smoking ban for you...

Re: When Did We Get So Fucking Old?

I'm not sure what I find more annoying at gigs these days? People with phones out or the plus ones - the dragged along boyfriends who just stand there and sulk for a few hours. You want fucking old? I'll give you fucking old. I'll give you old! Well, not me, but my old man, he was seen rocking at R...

Re: Sexism in the music industry.

I thought the point of your article was that female 'rock' band members are being forced to look like 'pop' stars as that's being suggested to them as the best way to sell more records. Hardly a revelation! It just seems a little naïve to suggest that musicians should be judged only on their music, ...
