Ha ha, I was at this gig at The Fleece last week & it was nothing like this review. It’s totally like I was at a different gig. 10/10 my arse! The crowd going crazy my other arse! It was a pretty good night (esp if you’re into pppppppppower pppppppoppppppp pppppppunk) which was pretty much what the evening was about up to a certain extent. (Less of a certain extent than I was expecting tbh).
I’d been rinsing the Pariso album all day so was expecting it to seem much tamer than it turned out.
Make Do And Mend were def the highlight. Really looking forward to their new album next month (Everything You Ever Loved). Kinda melodic but less so live than recorded.
Set Your Goals played a pretty good set, mainly old stuff - they said their last album got panned in the US (understandable, it was way mersh) and although they claimed to be stoked we in the uk were well into it (really? Oooooooohkayyyyyyy, if you say so…) they mainly played their old material.
They finished with Gaia Bleeds (Make Way For Men) which went down a bit of a storm but to say that the whole room was going crazy & hanging off the ceiling is ludicrous - the circle pits were a classic case of two people running around a bit, & the two of em kept on being egged on to circle pit time & time again by the bands. Obvsly had a sense of humour I reckon.
So, better than I was expecting but nowhere near a gig of the year. Want to see MDAM again.
Oh, Spycatcher were ok too, bit run of the mill an all but ok.
