Okay, so, i wanted to post something today, as i’m gonna be pretty busy over the next few days – i’m moving back to Uni and i’ve got a lot of things on…so i thought i should put a random post up to keep my blog active…i was gonna do an album review, but i don’t really have the time to sit here and write up loads, so instead i’m gonna do an update of random news…in a slot i’m calling…‘The Random News Post That Interests Me, But Probably Won’t Interest Many Other People’...or..maybe not!!!
Official Website for a full list of dates…Andrew Bird
Iron Maiden have announced tour dates in Australia…and supposedly tickets are flying…Europe will hopefully be announced soon…so, keep checking the website for details…official web
Touring Bands who i recommend you check out or go and see…
The Twilight Sad – have recieved great praise from journos everywhere and are one of the best new bands around…i will do my own review of their album soon, but it is so damn good that it will be one of my albums of the year…anywho, they’re touring with Idlewild soon… Twilight Sad Myspace
Broken Family Band – another great new British band who need to get more recognition – they’re touring Britain in October, but you need to buy their new album wherever you are…and check out their new video on youtube (it’s called ‘Leaps’)… Myspace
Bad news…The Sex Pistols have announced some new dates – now don’t get me wrong…Never Mind The B******S is a good album…but they’re charging nearly £40 for tickets…and the whole thing just stinks of ‘cash-in’ – and using the 30th anniversary as a reason to line their pockets some more…i’m just really disappointed – doesn’t really reflect a very ‘punk’ attitude does it…hmmm…
Finally, just a quick reminder that The Autumns‘ new album is out, not next week, but the week after (October 8th to be precise)….and again, i can’t wait…it is going to be so good – i’m hoping i’m gonna be able to sneak a promo copy from somewhere so a review may be able to be read next week…if not, then you’re going to have to wait patiently for the week starting Oct 8th!!! Also, they’re touring with the Kissaway Trail in November…so go watch them live aswell…dates on their myspace…Autumns’ Myspace
I’m hoping to do an article on their record label…Bella Union…at some point…when i’m less busy…and i will do an actual album review soon…can’t wait can ya?!?!?
btw…i can’t believe i’ve rambled on so much!!!
