The music is fine, its just his droning voice that kills it. There's a reason he was the bass player and not the singer.

Doesn’t sing, shouts and growls. Lemmy has a voice of an angel in comparison to Hook.

It's indoors. smile

Gig is indoor but if HJ is kind enough to treat us to his post gig cabaret act on the rooftop terrace, I will need to be prepared for the elements up there.

Went to Guiseley today.  Stating the obvious but they're definitely down and deservedly so, absolute garbage.  So one place that Halifax don't need to worry about.  Would be surprised if Guiseley register another win before the end of the season.

The goal they 'scored' today was comedy gold.  Gentle back pass from the Leyton Orient back left back then a combination of their Keeper taking his eye off the ball and it bobbling, resulted in the softest of own goals.  Worse than Paul Robinson's for England.

I think Tony Wilson said that it wouldn't mean anything to him until the council estate kids in the UK got hold of it.  I know he was a bit of a tool but that seems how I kind of feel about a lot of music.  It means more to me when it's more relatable.  I have not frame of reference for a lot of what rap talks about not really have I much in common with a lot more American stuff but when Mike Skinner rapped about being late with his dvd and taking E in a club it was my life.  If you known what I mean........Harry.

Did he say the same about Motown? Stax? Funny he gave Chicago's House a free pass.
I've never worked a field in the Delta but I loved Elmore James when my old man played me him as a kid.
I guess hip hop didn't originate in Hulme so he couldn't bring himself to like it.....

I'm sure if Wilson had lived a little bit longer, he'd have spun the line that Manchester invented hip hop and rap.  His life work was reinventing history to put Manchester at the forefront and inventor of everything irrespective if facts suggested otherwise.

A white one.

Usual format - 3 bands, £5.  Saturday 7th April at Fox & Newt on Burley Road, the bands featuring are April Towers, ENGINE and Harry Zalega.

Promotional biographies below:

April Towers began making music in Nottingham in 2013, Alex Noble and Charlie Burley, met at school and bonded over a mutual love of The Arctic Monkeys. Despite earlier experiments with their own guitar based band, the duo changed direction and took their inspiration from the likes of Hot Chip and LCD Soundsystem.  Since then they've packed a lot in! Their single Arcadia was played by Fearne Cotton on  Radio 1, they featured on the FIFA 2016 video game soundtrack and they've been building a big support base with their brand of edgy, electro music, underpinned with solid dance beats.

They've been working hard on their debut album, successfully crowd sourcing the funding through Pledge Music. Now Certified Freaky is ready for release on FFS Records and fans in Leeds will get an exclusive opportunity to hear tracks from it at the Fox and Newt as the lads warm-up for a nationwide tour with a long-awaited return to the city to play at a fantastically intimate venue.

Supporting AT will be another highly-rated band, ENGINE, playing in their home city. Surfing in from the outer rim of Burley and noisily settling on the Meanwood nebula, ENGINE continue to blaze an individual DIY trail in Leeds. The group combines sampled psychedelicisms with introverted songwriting of a bygone era.  They've recently released debut album 'Cucumber Water', plus their first music video and they've been building a live reputation with support slots for Connan Mockasin, Infinite Bisous and C Duncan. They've been getting plenty of radio airplay as well and they've another vinyl release slated for the summer.

Harry Zalega's a regular performer at Oddjob events. He's a student at Leeds College of Music but as well as his studies he's a singer/songwriter who has a fantastic rich, soulful voice. He's recently been working on a lot of new material, switched from acoustic guitar to keyboards and he's looking forward to sharing his new sound with another Oddjob audience.

Tickets on sale in Crash and Jumbo or online from their sites.  Alternatively, pm me.

Really liked him in the 80`s when he was with The Commotions, haven`t heard much solo stuff.
Rattlesnakes is a great album, had a bootleg of them playing Gladstonbury, probably `86 as pretty sure it was the night England played Argentina in Mexico.

Wished I`d got to see them live at that time.

If the bootleg is the night England played Argentina then it's when Lloyd Cole & The Commotions supported Simple Minds at Milton Keynes bowl.  Reason I know that was I was there and Jim Kerr sauntered on to stage at the beginning of their set and cockily informed everyone that England had got beat.  Then spent the rest of their set asking people not to bottle them.

It was a decent line up - Dr & The Medics, Big Audio Dynamite, The Waterboys, Lloyd Cole & The Commotions and Simple Minds.

Less shouty, less heavy, less guitary.

And all the better for it. It’s beauty.

There’s An Evening with Viv Albertine at The Wardrobe in May as part of the Leeds International Festival.

Believe the hype.

Cracking debut LP from these South Londoners.

Tunes, lyrics and attitude!

Angus Kinnear, confirmed that the club will consult supporters again over the crest, which is due to be introduced on the club’s shirts from next season. “We always knew that the introduction of a crest, particularly one that is so bold and such a break away from the traditional conventions of football club crests, was going to create debate and may be controversial,” Kinnear said.

“We had confidence in the process we went through to arrive at the design but today we’ve been overwhelmed by the feedback. From my perspective it’s exactly why I love working for this club because the passion and enthusiasm and the commitment of the fanbase is quite astounding. We put the supporters at the heart of everything we do and we are here to make them proud and so, based on some of the feedback we’ve received, it’s evident that the process wasn’t extensive enough and we need to seek further consultation with our fans as we don’t want to do anything that the majority of the fanbase don’t believe in.

I think I want to vomit. This is exactly the kind of non-speak that fucks me off. If he had been a bit more straight with his clear fuck-up and a promised to put it right, he would have been forgiven immediately.

At least there’s no references to brand and customers...

Bizzarely, a very good friend hates music. In fact two, but one doesn’t know it.

The first only has the soundtrack from Kevin and Perry Go Large.

The second had Counting Crows’ first record and, in another soundtrack related moment of madness, music from the Godfather.

It’s always confused me.

My business partner is 34 And he's never bought a single piece of music in his life

He also drives without his seatbelt on and can happily sit there with the fuckin warning beepz getting louder and louder. I feel like I'm gonna explode and then have to ask him calmly to plug the fuckin thing in. Only way it could be worse is if the alarm noise was fuckin Adele singing

Or Billy Ocean

Sounds like the going’s got tough for Scoots already
