From one extreme to the other. :lol:

I was mainly going for Molly Hatchet, but they pulled out. Still enough to make it worthwhile.


Not quite enough for me, as the two bands I really want to see (Jason and The Scorchers, Kentucky Headhunters) are at Buckley Tiv on Tuesday with Dan Baird, who been great whenever I've seen them. Same last year, both headliners played locally and can see a lot of the other bands fairly easily.

Next - Charity gig for CALM tomorrow as a tribute to a local promoter who dies earlier in the year, with some of his favourite bands and bands he'd been friends with since school - Church of the Cosmic Skull, Pist, Barbarian Hermit etc.



Differnce is it's easier and cheaper for us to get to Yorksire than Buckley. :lol:

Yeah, its 15mins drive for me, if it was public transport it would be well over an hour to get form one side of the ring road the other and probably none running when the gig finishes.

Anyway, the CALM gig went well - tough going at times as I knew the guy who it was in memorium of, and friends with some of the bands that knew him from school, and seeing his mum battle though a speech. Some of the bands were not my thing, but all played a blinder. Good turnout and nearly 4 grand raised for CALM.

Last:
Tomb Mold / Ritual Necromancy / Of Feather And Bone / Slimelord at Nambucca
That was fucking insane. All four of the bands were awesome but I was particularly blown away by OFAB. It was rammed for Tomb Mold and the pit was massive.

Next (at the moment):
Ghost at Wembley

Last gig(s) were Bloodstock followed by Queensryche in Norwich the day after. Safe to say I was feeling a bit ropey when I got to Queensryche but a pint of Hobgoblin soon sorted me out. :lol:

Next gig is Gary Numan in Norwich in October. Was meant to see him a few years back but something came up so very much looking forward to this!

I prefer his old stuff to the newer industrial stuff but Gary Numan is still great live. I saw him 2 or 3 years ago at Standon Calling

I haven't really delved into his newer stuff yet tbh! Just been watching footage of his show in Liverpool last year and he sounds great!

Last: it was a Whitfield Crane solo gig of all things....didn't play any UKJ, only his solo stuff and a couple of Life Of Agony covers. Also playing some Judas Priest and AC/DC covers, and was joined by Pat Cash of all people onstage (yes, the Wimbledon 1987 winner).

Next: Sisters Of Mercy at the Roundhouse on Saturday.
