Got back from Truck Festival today. Weather was much better than forecast, just some heavy showers on the Friday night.

One thing that was noticeble was the amount of bands that sound very similar to each other, and it did leave me a bit disappointed at the lack of originality on display. So many bands just sounded like a variant of The Killers, The 1975 etc etc, and were all incredibly polished, and very very dull.

Exceptions were the Gang Of Four, who were absolutely awesome, and made me feel like I did when I was going to gigs in my teens and twenties. What a band.

The other exception was a new band to me, Maybeshewill. Dynamic instrumental post-rock of the highest order, and definitely a band I would recommend to those of you who like that kind of thing.

Gang of Four are great, never seen them live though, lucky man.

Will check out Maybeshewill, like a bit of post rock.

Can't recommend going to see Gang Of Four enough, fantastic rhythm section, new singer with real energy, and of course that classic Andy Gill guitar sound. I was a little disappointed to see only one original member remaining in the band, but honestly, the new members are all great.

I think Maybeshewill are a band to see live, rather than on record. Saying that, I haven't heard any of their records.  Biggrin

Went to see Blondie at the O2

Went to see Blondie at the O2 Academy in Bristol last night. They were brilliant. Only on an hour & 20 mins or so, but it was all good, and is guess they need to pace themselves nowadays.

The support were a band called The Carnabys, very confident and talented. They did a cover of I Wanna Be Your Dog, which was a good as Iggy Pop (if not better)

Ive seen Blodie 3 times, and they've never done my favourite song "Rip Her To Shreds"

Deafheaven last Sunday in the

Deafheaven last Sunday in the Mandela Hall, Belfast. Fantastic gig, like standing in a hurricane.

Slint last Monday in the Limelight, Belfast. A lesson in dynamics, power and precision, absolutely sublime.

First Aid Kit were really

First Aid Kit were really good last night. I found the vocals and slide guitar a bit abrasive on the first few songs, but they must have twiddled some knobs as it seemed to get better. They did one song with no mics or band and the crowd joined in. The crowd also sang the chorus to Emmylou (their last song). 
It's not my usual type of music, but I'd definitely go to see them again.

The support was a young folk singer from Manchester called Jo Rose. It was just him and a guitar. He did say he'd like to be able to tour with a band in the future. He's on spotify and I'll prob have a listen later.
