    My mate phoned a few months ago, Focus are on in November, shall we go? So, saw them In Scotland last Saturday, worth the hours of travel from the North West, very well performed, slightly (very?) self indulgent - well it is prog! Agree that Pierre was excellent but drum solos - meh!
    I am ashamed to admit that I was surprised to find that Jan Akkerman left in 1976!

    Just back from seeing Catrin Finch / Seckou Keita in Brecon - great chemistry between them and they appeared to thoroughly enjoy their time on stage together. Bought a signed copy of the album and then we sat next to a woman in her 70s (?) who said that she should really dig out her record player - which is transpired was a Linn bought in the 80s which cost her 2 months salary!
    Cheers

    Mogwai + The Twilight Sad last night in Liverpool. Too bloody loud! (Not that I wasn't expecting that). Ended up leaving half way through Mogwai.

    Kraftwerk Re:Werk at The Anvil, Basingstoke last Saturday.
    Bit of a mixed bag; and I preferred the Messiaen piece in the first half to the rearrangement of Trans Europe Express.
    Glad I went; but for me it was more music to admire than enjoy.

    John Cale at the De La Warr Pavilion in Bexhill on Sea. Great band as usual, great sound and great versions of Magritte and Hedda Gabler amongst others, slightly marred by guitar problems in the Gun/Pablo Picasso finale. A bit more electric chamber music and less straight heavy rock than a few years ago at the RFH and a great venue.

    Strange support act, though. A very fey local singer songwriter that seemed nervous beyond belief, spent ages tuning her nylon strung guitar between songs and sung love songs, apparently, about unhealthy sex and relationships.

    Lily Allen at Komplex 457

    The opening night of her European tour. She can sing. Quite a lot of just her and a piano.

    Peter Murphy '40 Years Of Bauhaus' featuring David J last night in Glasgow (SWG3) - it was an amazing show, his voice has lost none of its power and he has an amazing stage presence. The band were tight as hell and it was great to see him playing with original Bauhaus bassist David J.
    If you get a chance to see them on this tour I recommend that you get tickets!

    808 State and Lone in Brizzle last Saturday with all the silver ravers.
    Sadly, Lone was just a DJ set of his own material, rather than a live set; but it was still nice to hear it out at volume.
    Sound was a bit murky for 808 State; but a good run through of old and new tunes.

    Midge Ure, then The League at Leicester on Tuesday.

    Both good, but I know which I prefer.
     
  19. Saw Ed Harcourt at the Tabenacle in West London on Tuesday night. Ed put on a great show and The Tabenacle is a cracking venue, will look out for more gigs there.

    Last night at Manchester’s RNCM the students put on a Puccini double bill of one act operas by Puccini.
    First off was the bleak Suor Angelica followed by the comic Gianni Schicchi.
    The quality of the performances was quite outstanding and in Linda Richardson who played Suor Angelico and Quentin Hayes who was a rumbustious Gianni Schicchi the College have two superb artists in residence.
