It wasn't only the supports' friends who disappeared - it was the bands themselves as well, which I thought was pretty disgraceful. Shouldn't they be sticking around to see the main band? It wasn't like they were all in the bar together after their set - I saw two of them driving off in their cars after they'd finished - it can't hurt to stick around for an extra three-quarters of an hour, can it? They might have learnt something about stagecraft and heard some decent tunes into the bargain.

And yes, I, Ludicrous were great. I've Never Been Hit By Mark E Smith was the standout for me.

I am starting an indie-pop 'Monday Social' club night at Goblets, 184 Above Bar Street, Southampton, SO14 7DW on Monday 1st November & then if it goes well hopefully the first Monday of each month. :)

I will be playing Indie-Pop (old & new from SHOP ASSISTANTS to PAINS to ORANGE JUICE); classic punk rock (BUZZCOCKS; UNDERTONES; RAMONES etc) & 60s Girl Groups (SHANGRI LAS; RONETTES; COOKIES etc), plus the odd surprise!

Times will be 7.30-11pm & will be asking for a small donation of a quid or whatever people think it is worth!

Anyone go to either of THE VACCINES Southampton gigs over the weekend? They played Unit on Saturday which I couldn't make & just found out they also played at the Uni yesterday.

Good work Rich! It's a pity they don't serve a decent pint at the Soul Cellar, but I suppose that will stop me drinking quite so much on a work night. Other commitments notwithstanding, I'll be there.

Since I last posted on this thread...no, I didn't see the Vaccines. To be honest, I had to look them up! Er, I think that means I'm out of touch with the kids?

And The Primitives coming back is good news! The bad news (for me) is that I've promised to take my daughter and her friend to see Justin Bieber in London, and I have a horrible feeling it's the same night. If not, I'll be at the Joiners, rocking out! On the other hand, if I'm at the Bieber concert, spare a thought for me, won't you?

In other news, an Anorak team went to the first Talking Heads music quiz a couple of weeks back and finished...er, last. Too many questions about 1980s funk for us. Still, we may go back and try again in January. I'll be boning up on my Fatback Band knowledge in the meantime.

& Soul Cellar drink selection is way better than the Joiners - at least they do a decent cider (eg that isn't Strongbow!)!

Maybe I was being a bit harsh on the Soul Cellar's beer selection - I'm sure I'll find a bottle of something refreshing on the evening! At least the musical selection won't be bettered anywhere else.

And The Bieber? I know, I know! I took my son to the FA Cup Final last year (when both children wanted to go). As part of the deal that he could go, I promised to take my daughter to a big event of her choice in the near future...and, well, it's payback time next March! Don't tell anyone else will you? My cred is shredded enough, not knowing who the Vaccines were :-/
