Onto last night and a proper old school awayday.Who knew York was an hour and three quarters from London ?anyway.first chance for me to catch Lovvers on what I’m calling the “Think!about nuns on dodgems tour!”
Taking “our band could be your life” as a how to…. guide the guys are more than half way through a self booked self driven self organised run through all the countries of the uk.
I must admit I was shocked to see the cinema basement packed and the low celing and lack of stage made for an authentic punk rock setting.Band were on fire having played a run of shows and also clearly loving every minute of being out there.the legendary “slow song” makes an appearence and all I can think about is how many people actually saw all those seminal bands from Azerrad’s book when they first came to the UK.seems to me Lovvers might be doing even better.
Where else to end a great night that an THE STONE ROSES BAR.Amazing.what fresh hell is this.wondered if they shouldn’t open a led zep bar next door and rename “overrated shitty bands street” but hey Funky Kingston on the jukebox so somehow got through it.
Can’t finish this overdue b log without mention of 2 things.
We are now just a week away from SHREDYRFACE and the greatest tour to hit the uk of ALL TIME !! TNV people !!!!!
And finally.THE BRONX.oh the bronx.lp3 is probably the best thing they have ever done which is some pretty high praise but OMG folks you are in for a treat…..
