Im going to see my first concert in June im seeing Ben Folds in the lowry centre in manchester. Im going to organise going to see the pixies and kasabian. If Morrissey does any tours in the future i will be the first person to buy a ticket and anyone who wants to beat me to one come forward and confess (hehe).

How about you?
You're gonna kill me, is that your plan?

The only bands i've seen worth mentioning are Skinny Puppy, Portion Control, Ministry & Assemblage 23, but I've seen quite a few metal & indie bands.

Ooh, gig thread, wheee. I've seen various bands and artists with varying degrees of goodness... This week I've seen Adam Green and The Dears (haha, I don't normally go to two gigs a week unfortunately, this week was just busy!), and I've seen Morrissey (twice), Ed Harcourt, the Buzzcocks, Snow Patrol, Jackson Browne, the Ordinary Boys, Rufus Wainwright, Placebo... Probably forgotten some. Dammit, I can't think now! I'm seeing Soulwax in half term too.

The Manics are coming to Southampton in April but tickets have sold out already and they only went on sale today. Bloody touts, they get right on my tits. <!--emo&:angry:-->Image<!--endemo-->

I decree today that life is simply taking and not giving
England is mine, it owes me a living
But ask me why and I'll spit in your eye
Oh, ask me why and I'll spit in your eye
But we cannot cling to the old dreams anymore
No, we cannot cling to those dreams
Does the body rule the mind or does the mind rule the body?
I dunno...
Under the iron bridge we kissed
And although I ended up with sore lips
It just wasn't like the old days anymore
No, it wasn't like those days
Am I still ill...?

Reclamation, when did you see Ministry? Must be something to experience. Jourgensen's music got too bizarre for me when he started wearing that cowboy hat! Love the early stuff when he was on trax records and when 80's Goth was at its peak. I love All Day, Halloween, Land of Rape and Honey, stuff like that. Anyway, I too, have seen too many bands to mention, mostly from the late 80's. Best ones were Oingo Boingo, Soundgarden, Moody Blues (on the waterfront with a full string orchestra!), Echo and the Bunnymen. I'm sure I'm missing more! How my sister got to see the Smiths, while I completely missed them is the biggest mystery of my life. My 2 recent ones were Morrissey and the Trashcan Sinatras last year. Coachella sounds like the place to be this year, lots of acts I'd like to see, but I'm not one for festivals, especially out in the middle of nowhere, in the desert, no less!

GA, the Buzzcocks are still at it? Joyce didn't drum for them again, did he? And how are the Dears, I'm thinking of getting No Cities Left. I love We Can Have It. 30 seconds on iTunes does it no justice. Heard the whole song on the SpinArt Records site. Beautiful song how it starts off slow, jams, then slows again at the end. Just breathtaking!

Yeah, they are!! I was really surprised that they were touring, I actually assumed most of them were dead... <!--emo&:unsure:-->Image<!--endemo--> Unfortunately Mike Joyce wasn't drumming, that would have been so cool!

No Cities Left is really worth getting, it's a wonderful album. It's a bit of a grower, there are some insant standout tracks and others that take a bit longer to really like, but it is very good indeed. My favourites are Lost In The Plot, Don't Lose The Faith, The Second Part and Who Are You, Defenders Of The Universe? The lead singer, Murray Lightburn, is also a HUGE Smiths fan, and The Dears have been compared to The Smiths, but I don't really see it... His voice sounds almost exactly like Damon Albarn from Blur though. Ironically, I read an interview with him where he said that although he liked Blur at first, the more he heard, the more he started to hate them, and he thinks Damon Albarn's a git. Or words to that effect.

Everyone's dream, eh? Seeing a musical hero stripped of all their fanfare and performing in a small venue. For me it would be Johnny Marr. You didn't mention when you saw Frank Black.

o o o I saw R.E.M on Wednesday, Birmingham NEC it was the best I have ever seen them! I've been to Glastonbury for three years on the trot, that was the first time I saw La Moz (last year). err...I saw Manic Street Preachers last December along with Morrissey (again!). lol I also saw Pixies twice, both being the best gigs I have ever been to!

What are the Manics like live? According to efestivals.co.uk they might be supporting Oasis at their huge gigs over the summer, one of which I'm going to. How much early (ie. Richey-era) stuff do they play?

At the minute Manics are the best they've been live since Richey left. They play around 6 songs in the Richey era, three of them off the Holy Bible. Supporting Oasis? That's a bit odd seen as Manics and Oasis where chart oppositions in the Brit Pop days!

Yeah, I thought it was weird... Although, I guess it wouldn't be supporting as such - Oasis's summer gigs are like huge festival-type things, so the Manics would just be another band on the bill, not neccessarily 'support'.

That's the show I'm going to, they'd be 'special guests'. I don't know why they're below fucking Kasabian, maybe they're doing it in order of who's the most likely to be appearing.
