    The Ex were superb, as usual.
    They were. What was perhaps more impressive is that, for a band that's been around for c30 years, they got away with playing a set comprising just one old track, the remainder coming from their new album. For most other bands, that's a recipe for a moaning audience, but quite the opposite which, among other things, says something about the quality of 27 Passports.

      It was all seated in Manchester.
      I have re booked to see him in Leeds (as I am away for the Brighton gig) got a seat about 10 rows up. So I can fully take it in this time rather than dealing with people on the bar runs and forever moving around to get a view of the stage.

      Living in Somerset in the 90’s, a group of us would think nothing of piling into someone’s car and driving to London for gigs and driving home afterwards. It is motorway all the way so was always a fairly easy drive.

      We had tickets to see Ornette Coleman at either the Barbican or RFH. We left at our usual time in the afternoon and had a terrible journey but not one where we thought we should give up. Let’s keep going we thought, we might catch the second set. So despite the hold ups we battled on into the city. Anyway, to cut a long story we parked up, ran to the venue and up the stairs to hear riotous applause and thunderous clapping. The venue steward let us in only to see Ornette and his band leave the stage having finished their encore.

      A quick drink in the bar and we dragged our sorry arses back to Somerset.

      A nice postscript was the venue feeling very sorry for us and gave us our money back.

      On a mission to cheer myself up I note that Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever are coming to town in the Autumn, nice.

      Pretty much a mid period GoBetweens tribute act who play their own material.

      I’ve yet to see this band, sadly commitments at work meant I had to part with tickets. At some point, before I am too old to go out, I hope to catch them live.

      I popped my cherry with them the other night. They play often, and did say they'd be back soon. Toby from Dictionary Pudding (who put them on) did say that he'd happily put them on any time, so it shouldn't be too long. Well worth it.
