Got tickets to see Oh Sees in September, which I'm somewhat excited about given their live reputation. Will miss out on HMHB this time round as we're on holiday, which is a pity.

Caught them last year, when they were touring material drawn from 'Orc' and 'A Weird Exits' with the 2 drummer line up - one of the best gigs I've ever experienced,up there with The Clash and Killing Joke back in the day. I'm sometimes a touch reticent about fully endorsing whichever act Mr Riley happens to be gushing over this week, but he was bang on with Dwyer's mob. Think they're back to 1 drummer on the latest line-up, presume yer going to the Kentish town gig? I'm hoping to catch them at Bristol, or even better, at EOTR - that's if I can crowbar my son away from his latest g/f...
This is a good example of their mellower sound; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TW4kzKAFRpI

Got the ferry from Helsinki to Tallinn today and there was a lot of metal t-shirted folk on board. Arrived in Tallinn and there were posters everywhere for Nickelback playing tonight. Surely not, I thought...

Sure enough, Maiden are kicking off their latest world gour here tomorrow, so my faith in the Finns is restored. Was 30 tickets left, so I grabbed a couple. And they are on their 'hits' tour cycle, not the 'new shit' tour cycle, so should be decent.

Was a very enjoyable show - not really one to get excited about the whole "let's find out what their set-list is for the tour" hype, but I must admit it was entertaining, particularly the crowd reaction when rarities came on.

Best by far was that they played "Flight of Icarus" live for the first time in over 30 years. Pretty much my favourite Bruce era Maiden song. Also kicked in "Where Eagles Dare" for the first time in a decade, which is a cool song.

The other rarer songs weren't so exciting - "Then Clansman" is pretty damn cool when sung live by Bruce, but "Sign of the Cross" and "For the Greater Good of God" are just too damn long and not that special. Could easily have been replaced by four better normal length tracks in the same amount of time (or "Rime of the Ancient Mariner"). I quite like "The Wickerman", so that one was OK - but again, could have resurrected a much cooler (and longer buried) song than that.

Dave Murray looks really fat. :lol: He isn't really huge, but looks like 90% of his weight is stored underneath his chin.

Janik Gers is still the single worst live musician in existence. He really detracts from their live show. He contributes fuck-all actual playing (he is surplus to requirements with Dave Murray and Adrian Smith there) and what he does play is usually absolute butchering of Smith's old solo's. He's not a terrible guitarist, but his style really doesn't suit the old material. And his stage presence is just cringe-worthy - actually painful to watch. He looks like an 8 year old kid who has watched a one-hour highlights video of the most extravagant 80s glam posturing guitar-work, then puts on an air-guitar show for his family afterwards. Just absolutely dire. He actually is one of the better song writers in the band post re-union, but he needs to be put out the back for live shows.

Wife booked to see ASH play a *tiny* club in Bedford in August. Capacity 250, that'll be f**king sweaty and noisy and amazing.

Hoping to get tickets for PUBLIC SERVICE BROADCASTING at the Albert Hall in November when they go on sale next week.

I've seen Ash loads of times, they never disappoint. I'm seeing them three times this year :lol:

Saw them at Teddy Rocks in May, they're playing Kentish Forum in October, and Esquires in August.

PSB I've seen supporting the Manics, and at the Electric Ballroom. They're so good :o

I saw The Gaslight Anthem playing a reunion show in DC last weekend. Absolutely phenomenal show.

Matt Mays opened for them and was pretty great also.

If you can lay your hands on any I would definitely go for it. Almost certainly the best show I've ever been to.

I saw Brian a few months back and he was good but the whole band together has the edge.

I've been keeping my eye out, seatwave and viagogo predictably are complete rip offs.

Yeah I saw Brian in 2016, he was very good to be fair but I've never seen Gaslight live so will do my best.

Spent an enjoyable evening in Amsterdam on Monday to see Body Count. Kicking off with Raining Blood and Postmortem got the crowd going nicely. Sweet gig. Ice T's 25/75 self-deprecation / tough guy from the hood shtick made it even better.
