11 Sep 2005, 19:34Keep forgetting to update and I can't even remember the other gigs I've been to in between this and the last, at least I don't there were any. Anyway,
Best gig ever.
Every band member sang lead vocals and some point in the night. Played El Scorcho. Rivers' played Island in the Sun acousticly from the sound desk. Then crowd surfed back to the stage for the encore. Where they got a guy from the crowd to play with them.
I'll try and edit this with more info and setlist asap.
intro music: When You Wish Upon A Star
Don't Let Go
My Name Is Jonas
Fall Together (Scott on vocals)
Death And Destruction (instrumental)

20 Ago 2005, 18:59Turned up, went in, snaked up the stairs. Place is amazing. Can't wait to see more bands there. Anyway, Errors were supporting and that's my third time seeing them. I like them but I just wanted Mogwai to be on.
When the 'Gwai came on there was this cool blast of air from the most amazing air-con ever...felt like Pete was blowing on my neck all night. They started off quite well, but when Tracy came on I was extremly chuffed. A fav of mine and from what I understand quite rare. They also nipped off for a toilet break after Ratts of the Capitol which they stressed wasn't an encore. I ran to the toilets forgetting that I'd read that ABC has amazing back stage toilets... so while I was queuing in the tiny men's toilet (which had broken sinks) they came back on and played Hunted by a Freak. I managed to get back just as the song was finishing...it never seemed that short...the queue must have been that long. However it was good background music for my piss.
They finished of Mogwai Fear Satan but did come back on for a -somewhat I believe- unplanned encore and shook the place down with Like Herod... which was fantasic. There were lots of people with fingers in their ears during it which was amazing to see.

20 Ago 2005, 18:41I preferred the Tuts gig last year I think. There was more from Music for Nurses played however, I didn't know all of Oceansize's stuff back then and even now I do it's not as if it payed off so to speak. They played alot of stuff from the new album plus... Breed Siamese which is one hell of an awesome b-side. Wasn't going to download the album but after hearing the new track Music for a Nurse I want to but I'll just need to wait. It's really good though. Lookin' forward to seeing them in Edinburgh...just hope the girls are still going....don't really want to be in the habit of going to gigs in the capital on my own. Oh and there were lots of Biffy Boarders there... more than possibly I've ever talked to at a Biffy gig... lots came up from down south as well which is crazy.

Music For a Nurse
13 Ago 2005, 13:21I've just been listening to some Explosions in the Sky in particular How Strange, Innocence mainly because I've not really listened to it alot, quite looking forward to it's re-release, only way I'll ever own it and I don't think I'll get it from eBay after the price it went for recently. Anyway, I am really really looking forward to seeing them at the ABC supporting Four Tet. After being in ABC2 -which is like a smaller venue within ABC- I can safely say it'll be amazing. It's quite a small place although I'm sure it'll be packed. Going to see Mogwai next week there too although it'll be in the larger part of ABC which I've also heard is amazing. Would have been there on the opening night if Mogwai hadn't cancelled.
