You're right. They premiered Parachute and Hole in My Soul.

I saw Super Furry Animals and Primal Scream last night and it was everything I honestly could have hoped for.

So, I've seen Radiohead, Arcade Fire, Robert Plant, Pixies and a whole bunch of other dudes and gals at NOS Alive this July. Super fun times 8-)

This October Lianne La Havas comes to Moscow, so I hope to see her perform, she's really good

I finally got my butt in gear after returning from vacation to write about Billy Joel's concert in Boston that I saw 2 weeks ago today -->

Excellent review! It's so refreshing nearly 30-years after I saw him that he can still put on such an amazing show! I was totally blown away then as you are now. I echo your sentiment, you must see him before it's too late.....it's definitely one of those experiences of a lifetime to see this man live!

Glad you enjoyed. I saw SFA (at least once) in the 90s. :)

I never did see Primal Scream at a local venue, don't think I saw them at a festival either. :(

Not sure why because I liked them from when 'Loaded' first went into the charts.

Garbage is performing at our state fair in October and I'm thinking about seeing them..... I guess they are worth seeing live based on the fact this will be your 2nd time, eh?

I saw Neville Staples Band and the Proclaimers at a festival in July but sadly besides them and the Stone Roses I've seen virtually no one this year, at least compared to Jay who has seen everyone.

I saw Massive Attack's homecoming festival-type gig on Saturday. Primal Scream in support. The weather was biblically bad - rain, rain and more rain. Totally soaked through by the end of the night. And poor event organisation and some technical issues meant the queues for the bars were beyond a joke - literally, the queues were meeting each other in the middle of the festival space such were the length. :shock: The music on the other hand was good. Primal Scream were the better of the two funnily enough for me, though that may have been influenced a tad by the worsening weather as the night wore on - hard to keep up the enthusiasm in all that. Brilliant video protections and visuals to support the Massive Attack performance though, really added something.

I'm having a bit of a 90s knees-up with Black Grape in November at a venue in the Midlands, can't remember exactly way for now. That's off the back of seeing them at a festival a month or two ago. They were a LOT of fun but being a festival / support tent style performance, fairly truncated, so it motivated me to rustle up some tickets for a full-on gig. Last time I saw Shaun was a Happy Mondays gig at the MEN about a decade ago, and I think he's got his act together a hell of a lot more these days so should be a decent night out.

And at the other end of the scale, just booked to see The Divine Comedy at the Palladium next February. I expect that to be a considerably more comfortable evening than Massive Attack. :lol:

Massive Attack & Primal Scream - that sounds potentially a good gig. As you say the worsening weather would impede the mood of a Massive Attack performance.

Shaun Ryder - he suffered after the original break-up of Black Grape, being bound by contractual problems. I understand this meant e.g. that he performed for Gorillaz without payment as such. This is now resolved and he has got himself together much more in recent times.

I saw Shaun & Bez several times during the 90s, as both the Mondays and Black Grape (& the Mondays again). In particular there was a storming gig at Newcastle Riverside where Bez was on electric form, strutting about the stage all night. This was when Black Grape's first single had entered the chart and the album was imminent. Good times :D

Absolutely! Shirley is fantastic live and the band sounds great!

They'll play here in December. It's already sold out since July.

I'm seeing kula shaker in Notts in December, playing K in its entirety, hoping for a cheeky version of 'Sound of Drums'

Always loved a bit of Black Grape (and Happy Mondays of course). The first BG album always puts me in mind of one of my university mates who I regularly car shared with. That album was on heavy rotation in his car for quite a while. Like you say, good times. Looking forward to dancing like an idiot in November. :lol:
