Went along to the Saturday of a 3 day Drill Festival in Leeds which celebrated Wire’s 40th anniversary but looking forward rather than back.
Big smiles as we waltz passed the lines of cheesed off looking Kasabian fans snaking round the corner and up the road from the Birmingham 02 Academy. We walk straight into the side hall of the Academy (which in itself is a fairly large venue). On the way in a friendly bouncer looks at us and goes “Ah you here for British Sea Shanties?” with a wry smile on his face. Good effort mate! I whince as I hand over the £5.10 for a pint of Tubourg!!
Is this really the first BSP gig this year? Well it’s definitely my first time in “The Church”.
Was going through some old magazines in the garage and found an old Mojo magazine. Forgot I got a mention
OK I’ll admit it, I’m not a massive Dears fan. I appreciate their work but I don’t listen to them much or have all their albums or anything. However, to have not seen them in Leeds at less than £20 a ticket would’ve been criminal.
