Whilst sat here vegetating to the Spain Vs Portugal World Cup and drinking far too much red wine I thought I’d try and serve some sort of purpose by bringing some collective thoughts (and photos mainly) to another fantastic Long Division. I’ve been to every god damn one of them must be a fair few now 6 or 7? I’ve blogged some of them in the past – click on the tags if you’re remotely interested.
Sure some of the original members may be missing in action The Vibrators being the worse hit with only their drummer standing. So I was intrigued as to whether they’d come across as a tribute band. I was also looking forward to seeing them as the last time I checked them out was at the 1996 “Holidays In The Sun” punk fest in Blackpool. The classics were given a new lease of life and original drummer “Eddie” doing a sterling job of powerhouse drumming whilst having a stint on vocals on some of the tracks.
Long Division is in it’s 6th year and the 6th time for me. Every single one of them being incredible value for money and a great mix of bands both young and old.
Day 1 of a 2 part British Sea Power gig run that would see me in London’s Roundhouse the following day.
Walking into the venue no one checks our tickets – coulda saved £30 there (only joking of course).
