I was promised it would be a rocking night out. I didn't mean to fall asleep.

I've had a few really good gigs under my belt in the last few weeks
- Idles @ Electric Ballroom
Probably the hottest tickets in town, their Camden shows sold out in seconds, and a great venue to see them at. It's a pretty slick machine - they are tight, their choruses are catchy, very political, and they rock hard. They are at the peak of their powers right now it feels and I had a storming night fuelled by whiskey. Great band that I'd recommend anyone/everyone to see if you can.
- Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs @ Bullingdon
They also sold out their London show, but managed to get tickets to see them in Oxford. Their tour is also sold out, and it's another great, exciting band. MUCH rawer and scruffier than Idles, and really enjoyed everything about them - their Northern humour, their genuine amazement at getting such large crowds, and a heavy, driving sound.
- Test Pressing @ all-around-Hackney
Great little festival that I think started last year. Pretty eclectic mix of bands across a few venues within 10 minutes walk of each other. Three bands really stood out - Mike Krol who has a really good garage rock sound, Warmduscher, who have a Bad Seeds vibe about them and a mental following, and Bo Ningen, who I've seen before but as an opening act, and it was great to see them in their own right - and they were incredible. Again I'd recommend anyone to catch them - very charismatic, psychedelic guitar gods.

It was the lullaby medley that they sang that did the trick wasn't it?

Thought they were smashing last night in Liverpool.
Roll on Durham week after next.

Goodness knows. There weren't any instruments - just vocals.
