Humousexual and Anguish Sandwich (live at Power Lunches, 17th November 2011)

Power Lunches is a nice little place on Kingsland Road, near Haggerston overground. It kinda reminds me of Cake Shop in New York, with a lovely cafe upstairs and a somewhat dingy (but nice) venue downstairs.

Last night, Humousexual were playing a London gig, something which doesn't happen very often. Last time I saw them was back in February when they played a bedroom in Notting Hill. Victor and Boitel were in great form, playing the hits, as well as some new songs. They have new CD out that you may or may not be able to order from Everard Records...and if you can then you should. I haven't had the chance to listen yet, but of course it's gonna be awesome.

A short youtube clip of Get On Yr Bike...

Later on, it was time for Anguish Sandwich. They played The Reading Festival this summer, as proven here by the official Reading Festival t-shirt.

Somewhere right between Henry Rollins and Descendents, which is not bad place to be on a t-shirt.

Anyway, they were awesome as usual and even treated us to some new songs.

They've been threatening to take their current EP off bandcamp, so hurry over and get while you still can.

A great evening with two great bands....and now it's Friday. It just gets better and better. Have a good weekend!

Video of the day (Twisted Sister - Be Chrool to Your Scuel)

Alice Cooper was the guest host on Never Mind The Buzzcocks last night. It made me think of this classic video from my childhood heroes Twisted Sister.


You can't really post just one Twisted Sister just have to post some other classics. So, here goes...

We're Not Gonna Take It

and I Wanna Rock

That'll have to do for today. I do feel a bit bad leaving out classic videos like I am I'm Me and Leader Of The Pack, but youtube is your friend. Search and you shall find.

Last night...Allo Darlin' live at The Scala, 3rd November 2011

Wowzers, that was a great night...but, ouch my head hurts. Happy Birthday, Fortuna POP!

First song of the encore, Tallulah. The mic on my camera can only really handle quieter songs.

And some photos, from preparation to aftermath...

Allo Darlin' in the studio

Tonight is the third and final night of Fortuna POP! birthday gigs at The Scala and what a line-up it is! Allo Darlin', Darren Hayman, Tender Trap and The Ladybug Transistor! Yikes! You should most definitely come along. It'll be a very special evening.

At the weekend I visited Allo Darlin' in the studio, where they were recording the final bits and pieces of their next album, which is out at some point in early-ish 2012. I'm probably not allowed to say too much about the record, but it sounds pretty damn splendiferous. And that's just the rough mixes!

Anyway, I took some photos of the gang.
