Gigs I was at this week

Not "this week" this week, but this week in gigging history. Just on a whim, and because I haven't done anything on this site for ages, I added gigs I was at this week in history to the bottom of my gigography page. This week I saw Suicidal Tendencies, Sultans of Ping, Baby Bird, Idlewild, Tiger, and MJ Hibbett. Now there's a festival lineup and a half.

There was a Mexican themed barbecue at work today, I bet you wish you worked somewhere as cool as me. No food I could eat, but FEAR NOT, I will be getting my intake at Escondido on Friday. Can't wait.

Marvellous

I hope it's a top one. Sultans of Ping eh? Not heard of them in a while, I am jealous! Saw The Fall at Ashton Court festival a couple of weeks ago.. they were nothing much to write home about though. Much shambling about stage, random turning up of guitars to 11 and singing into 2 microphones (when one was more than adequate) - and that was just Mark E Smith. The rest of the band were really tight though, as one might expect after a reputed 57 lineup changes ! Oh well, he was probably pissed. Kid Carpet was the high point earlier in the day and was very entertaining with sampler based sillyness constructed from sampling & bending the sound from electronic kids toys whilst singing over the top. Oh and sampling choices phrases from the local radio station was a definate crowd pleaser !

It's a crying shame that after many many years of exceptionally hard work by the organisers the festival has ended up finally folding anyway. Ah, Bristol Community Festival - I salute you ! Gone but not forgotten.

Paul Clarke's - I live and work in Hythe near Folkestone, Kent. married to Clare and father to two, I am a code engineer, and I do mostly js, Node, python, ruby, and php. I like pubbing, restaurants, home automation and other diy jiggery-pokery, history, genealogy, TV, popbitch, squirrels, pirates ☠, lego, and time travel.
