Set length? Dunno, but I'm coming along so it better be good...some of the Friday or Sunday from Krankenhaus would be nice. Tugboat!

Other bands? Only familiar with Porridge Radio. Marc Riley plays them a bit, she has quite an overwrought voice, but I rather like it.

In the fullness of time, I'll do a meet up thread.

Sheer Mag are the only others I have seen: fairly lively garage rock, with a force-of-nature female vocalist
I'm hoping the BSP set is more Muncaster than Hay-on-Wye

Dear any and all who might see this,

I eagerly bought 2 tickets for this fine sounding event next month a few weeks back. I did not bother to check with my other half...and it turns out we are very much expected, nay our presence is non-negotiably demanded, elsewhere in the UK.

Anyone want two tickets??

thanks

Well, for those of you that didn’t make it, the set list won’t come as a shock…

Machineries
Whos in control
Larsen b
What you do
Spring has sprung
Praise for whatever
Bad bohemian
Green goddess
Remember me
Two fingers
Lucifer
Waving flags
Skua
Carrion
Lately

Is it an encore if the group don’t make it offstage? Not on the set list, Spirit Of St Louis closed the proceedings.

While hardly a startling set, a damn fine one with the Epic dial turned to full pretty much all night. What was strange was the lack of bears, foliage and merch. Oh, and punters. Last time they played Concorde 2 it was rammed. Admittedly that was an end of tour high, but it was a bloody Tuesday. Seriously, the place was half full at best, and a fair proportion of the audience only appeared for BSP. You have to question the wisdom of the promoters if they can’t pull a decent crowd, even on a Sunday night.

I would definitely say that was an "encore" in its truest sense, more so than a planned exit and re-entry. The wait whilst the band decided whether to respond to requests for more was as long as many bands stay off-stage.

The gig itself was unexpectedly loud (but then I'm rarely so near the front these days) almost raucous, but in a good way, with lots of weird noises. Hi-lights for me were Two Fingers and Praise For Whatever (perhaps their most under-rated song?), plus of course Lately and Louis, with a rather ambitious Yan 'crowd' surf during the latter - the same half dozen or so of us having to carry him around the relatively sparse audience.
