Sheffield, 9th Feb: Milky Wimpshake/Rosey PM/All Ashore!

Post by tonieee » Sat Jan 28, 2017 10:31

This is part of Milky Wimpshake's 20th anniversary of Bus Route To Your Heart tour which is very exciting!

I don't know much about Rosey PM but you can listen to them here and they sound jolly good:

And it's the first gig for All Ashore! who are my new band and are pretty much a Sheffield indiepop super group with several members of The Parallelograms, Velodrome 2000, The Millipedes and Plouf!

This is now at the Rocking Chair, not at the Old Crown as previously advertised and it's £3 to get in.

So glad it's found a new venue. Looking forward it.

The event for this has been deleted from Facebook. Should we be concerned?

Edit: disregard, Mabbs made another one.

I don't know the specifics but I'm guessing that previously the Facebook event was on the Old Crown's account and now Mabbs is in charge he's had to create a new one.

This was fun wasn't it? First time I've actively enjoyed Wimpshake (must've been the additional ROCK guitar).

Rosey PM were a nice reminder that not all new Sheffield bands are hipster two pieces with an aversion to melodies.

All Ashore were OK I guess. Nice hats.

Smiling all over this morning! What a splendid evening's entertainment that was.

There are few more joyous affirmations of life than Tonieee in a band, and that was a great debut from All Ashore! last night. I can't remember who it was next to me (probably Penny) who reckoned the track where Tonieee's nailing the high notes late on features his best vocal performance in a song EVER. High praise indeed. How Elodie managed to keep the seagull on her head for practically the whole set was faintly amazing, too.

Rosey PM reminded me of lots of things, few of them indiepop. Perhaps early Winehouse, back in the days when she was accompanied by not a lot else besides herself on guitar. Maybe some of the less saccharine or brazenly commercial exponents of 1980s sophisti-pop, too - Weekend sprung to mind, accurately or not. Rosey's bassist Katie Pham is pretty amazing also.

I love Bus Route To Your Heart to the point of delirium, so the Wimpshake's set was always going to please me hugely. Even so, the power quartet line-up for this tour does lift a few of the thinner-sounding songs to something even more satisfying; Blow Out at 80 Miles Per Hour is, was and will always remain a fun, catchy song, but last night it felt more like a pounding, irresistible set-closing track than ever it did before. Superb.

Lovely to see people during what's usually the time of the year I find it hardest to get to gigs due to work commitments. Apologies that I didn't talk more, however; my old school mate is going through a tough time at home and I think just needed someone to talk to/at for a few hours. Plus it was so dark in the Rocking Chair that I didn't recognise a few people until home time!

Enough of this. Peaness a week on Thursday, then? Yes please.
