They weren't awful, but in all my (almost 20) years of gig-going, I've never been as bored and uninvolved.  They played for two and a half hours (which would normally be a good thing), but for about two hours of that, they were so damn dull. 

I initially compared it to watching a tribute band, but then retracted that, given that a tribute band would play the classics.

Quite a few people near us walked out with about half an hour still to go.

But on the positive side, they played "Drown" (which is one of their best songs, but I never thought they'd play it live) and Mayonnaise sounded outstanding.  Which is why only part of me wishes I hadn't gone.  Be interesting to know what kingalan thought.

Agree completely. Possibly one of the worst gigs I've ever attended. After seeing them at Leeds I expected a certain level of self-indulgence, but this made that seem like a greatest hits set. Of the two and half hours, I'd say about twenty minutes of that was worth the trip to Manchester.

Musically they were great but Corgan has absolutely no concept of showmanship at all. As always, Tonight, Tonight, Today, 1979 and BWBW were hair-raising plus the inclusion of Drown, Mayonaisse, Perfect and The Everlasting Gaze was a pleasant surprise. Apart from that it was just self-serving wankery. Even though I was practically in the mosh-pit, I may aswell have been watching it on DVD. Why he insists on including some of the tuneless, overlong cack that he does (who told him United States was good??) and yet left out the likes of Zero and Disarm is beyond me.

Disappointing. Plus the cold, stagnant venue didn't help either.

Went to See Tony Allen Tonight, there were a couple of acts on before him who for shame I can't remember the names of, both were very different but were pretty good. Tony Just blew them away though. That man is such a talented drummer and his band were also extremly talented by the end of the show pretty much everyone was on their feet dancing to the groove Tony Allen has my vote for best drummer of all time for sure! so much talent

Though one thing troubles me. What drives a white middle aged male to thinking, you know what, I am off to see some African musicians tonight, you know what would enhance this experience for me, dressing up in African Clothing, yes, that would really make my night. Normally I wouldn't mind quite so much but it was fucking freezing tonight and the wind was immense... seriously guys... why?

Went To See The Futureheads down At Northumbria Uni Last night, I've seen them once before but this time they were so much better, Last time, like the album they were supporting (second one) they weren't quite so fun, too serious and the act suffered. This time they seemed to have regained their sense of fun which made the whole act a whole lot better to watch. The New Tunes sound pretty good too, I now have higher hopes for their album than I did

I'm recovering from an awesome night out at Alexandra Palce last night seeing The Editors!!
 
The only downside was that some muppet threw his pint at the PA system and blew it.  Right in the middle of the song I had been waiting for all night - Racing Rats    The guys were seriously pissed off as the sound kept cutting in and out but they managed to get it working properly for the last song - Smokers Outside the Hospital Doors

They should not allow drinks to be taken into the main area!!

Wish I was going again this evening.

Went to see The Fall a couple of nights back. Now musically they are absolutally awesome live, sure you can't understand a word Mark E Smith says, but you pick out one veery now and then I guess. The Music has the kinda hypnotic quality about it. It was also very interesting watching him on stage. He seemed like a geriatric old man who didn't quite know where he was. He was quite obviously pissed (it was his birthday to be fair)  But he would wander around the stage occassionally picking up two microphones singing into them both (which turns out is very loud)  He would fiddle with his poor bands amps, whacking them right up, right down, whatever suited him, most of the time this kinda enhanced the music somehow, but at one point when he turned off the guitar amp and the poor guitarist kinda kept on playing You began to understand why his band changes every album. He also threw one of his mic's into the bass drum at one point producing an odd sort of sound, which was fixed soon after. The man has some issues I feel.

After 37 minutes of great music (none of which I really recognised so is probably newer stuff) Mark E Smith just left the stage, the band looked a little surprised and the audience wouldn't leave until he came back on again, which he did after the band had also left. They played a couple more songs then he decided to leave again, this time it was the sound engineer who looked a little surprised... Once more the crowd continued to cheer for him... Again, after a wait he came back on again with the band and played blindness (a song I really rather like) which is also quite long. After that they left the stage again, This time for good. The crowd stayed put however, cheering for more, me included, until I noticed the guitarist leaving the building and decided he probably wasn't coming back on.  So all in all we got 63 minutes or so of fall, which was more than I was expecting, but it would have been nicer had it been more.

Having said that though, I would definately go and seee them again as the music is truely great stuff like, it has a real feel to it that made me feel the closest to the late 70's early 80's north west scene with the likes of the fall and Joy Division and such. A good night in all.

Went to See Jack Rose tonight. first two bands on I have to say were dreadful. The first band was effectively a wall of noise, it sounded like they had listened to Early sonic youth, my bloody valentine jesus and mary chain etc and just disregarded all sense of melody and focused in on the feedback layers of noise element and just created a 30 minute "song" around it. The second band consisted of a woman wailing into a microphone whilst playing (and I use that term lightly) either a keyboard, a harp or another instrument I don't know the name for offhand whilst a man banged tunelessly on a drumkit.. horrible stuff...

Third act on was quite nice, man and a guitar, nothing amazing, but nice. Then Jack Rose was pretty good, he is definately a talented guitarist, I didn't know much/anything of his before going and I have to say I was quite impressed, just a shame about the first two acts...

Seen Poison the Well and Dillinger Escape Plan at the Melkweg last week. PtW rocked but the sound let them down a bit. (T)DEP (have they dropped the the or was it never there in the first place?) were amazing, not really a huge fan, tagged along with my husband to see them but I was very impressed. Got a bit queezy though when the singer went round stage with blood pooring down his neck after one of his antics. Don't like the sight of blood much me
