New idea for my blog… finding it ever hard to find time to write, so at a minimum why not just stick out a post everyday with a link to a song by a Surrey / Hants / nearby band – priority given to relatively new songs and bands who are playing live in the area in the near future.

Day 1 – Song 1 – Daryl Vorderman – Pumping Station

Planespotting, Oktopussy, Oz & the Kryds, etc – The Cannon, Guildford, 1st July 2019

July 2, 2019

I missed etc.

I came with the sole intention of seeing Oz & the Kryds.  I missed Oz & the Kryds.

Oktopussy started off like some kinda bluesy-rock monster – not my ting really, but I know peeps who’d love it – but it worked and I digged.  The set moved towards a hardcore punk kinda vibe and was even better.  The truth is in the sweetspot.  Ones to watch.

Planespotting.  Arctic Monkeys-influnced indie.  By all accounts this should piss me off.  I’m over indie, and when a band reminds me of another I usually turn off.  But it wasn’t a rip off by any means… reggae vibes at times, superb drummer, bass damn fine,  tunes, fucking tidy lyrics and vocal rhythm (what the fuck are the words I’m looking for?)… I presume it’s the singer / guitarist’s band, he’s on the right track.

Nice venue, great night.

 

Tron – The Electric Theatre Guildford, 24th May 2019

I had a nice night.

Approached from along the river and entered the bar too the sounds of Fad Gadget which was a great start.  The place was pretty empty.  80s synth tunes.

Nigel N Powers bashed out a 20 minute or so set.  Lots of vocal samples.  A few old ravers dead impressed and checking out the gear.  Cool.

In the main room there were about 20 people, half on stage.  Incredible laser lightshow, visuals on big screens, a drone flying round, live electronic music, DJs.  Music was good but I was lost in the lasers, man.

I don’t know much about Kane FM.  Shamefully I’ve barely ever listened.  They put the night on, and I got a good vibe about what they’re doing generally.  Can’t believe there weren’t more people there – such a chilled vibe to hang out with a beer and chat and catch some music too.

Get to the next one peeps.

What’s going on…
