Re: Best gig you ever attended? (as a punter!)

That's the one! I knew I wasn't making it up! Other interesting 'local' musical facts. Sid Vicious lived in the town for a while. Sunna (signed to Massive Attack's Melankolic label) were from Clevedon, well the songwriter Jon Harris was. The second ever WOMAD festival was held in the town - 1982 (Su...

Re: Best gig you ever attended? (as a punter!)

yes, quite.....There used to be quite a good band back in the 80's called Head, and they were from the next town along the coast - Clevedon. If you don't know it, Clevedon is a 'quaint' Victorian seaside town with a pier. Incredible co-incidence, as the lead singer of Head was called 'Clevedon Pier'...

Re: Best gig you ever attended? (as a punter!)

Some great Artists there......Portishead in particular - they're from Portishead, which is 10 minutes from here. Really good people. But not prolific......that's the Bristol way. One album per decade, if you're lucky.

According to my UK retailer - an email has been sent from Ableton requesting that no units are dispatched before 28th regardless of whether stock is in....apparently authorisation codes will not be on the system before then......discuss?

@slatepipe - good list

Saw Mr Byrne at Bristol Colston Hall 5 or so years ago - legend.

Have also seen M Rev - what happened to them? I have All is Dream - fabulous and rediculously underrated album.

Best gig you ever attended? (as a punter!)

Given my love of electronic and alternative songwriters - I'm kind of embarrassed to admit that my favourite live experience is a toss-up between U2's Joshua Tree tour (80's) at London Wembley Statium and AC/DC in the same venue a couple of years back.......

How about you?
