With any luck, we might have a little more say in where the shows are next time - the booking agent was a nightmare- he'd never booked a tour before. He still hasn't I guess.

went to see Fucked Up last night... first time i've seen em playing the David Comes To Life stuff. it was SO FUCKING GOOD. they get better every time i see em

how do you even explain fucked up? i'm pretty sure there's no basic summary that wouldn't totally undersell them. certainly a psychedelic punk band fronted by a screaming loon shouldn't be as joyous as their live experience tends to be

also Black Albino Bones might just be turning into one of my favourite songs ever

I've never even heard Fucked Up, but I would probably like them. They are playing in Brum this week and I would probably pop along if I wasn't totally penniless.
I am struck speechless by the nape of your neck.

saw that! decent article, i thought

well, maybe except for the bit about no-one having heard of them, and the description of Fire Party not extending beyond 'all-female'

discussed that with a friend last night actually - he suggested that it was quite important to specify their gender, as they were possibly the only female band in that DC scene at that time (Chalk Circle had long split up by then, and i'm not sure if there was anyone else until Autoclave)... but referring to that might have made a bit more sense if they'd explained the context. maybe it was lost in the edit, who knows? as it is, it just looks like more 'male bands have genres, female bands have females in them' laziness. shame

generally i think Louis Pattison's alright - he wrote some good stuff for Plan B a few years back

Also if you are being pedantic FIRE PARTY weren't really a 'Revolution Summer' band - the first LP didn't come out until 1988.
Put them on in Southampton in 1989 (with SOFAHEAD) & they were great!
Other DC/Dischord bands we put on include SCREAM (in 1986), SOULSIDE, CIRCUS LUPUS and LUNGFISH together and BLUE TIP (twice).

ooh, i'm all confused now. i thought revolution summer was more about when the bands started playing out than when the records appeared?

i've seen a few people moaning that the article doesn't talk about One Last Wish, but they may as well moan about Happy Go Licky going unmentioned as far as i'm concerned - ROS are the more important band in the long run

hey Rich, have you picked up that Moss Icon discography yet? great stuff, spesh if you like ROS

Actually I think FIRE PARTY started in 1986 so just after the 'Revolution Summer'.
Thank you! SOULSIDE were superb. A band I was on tour with also played with them in Belgium (Aalst) on that 1989 tour (the only time SOULSIDE came to Europe) about a month after the Southampton gig so I chatted to them a fair bit. Scott from the band (& later GIRLS AGAINST BOYS) now lives in Vienna and is friends with one of my mates there.
I haven't got that MOSS ICON discography yet (money!) but I have all the original recs apart from the SILVER BEARINGS split. I bought the first EP from Rough Trade after hearing John Peel play 'Hate In Me'!

They always put on a great show. Charlie Harper is such a trooper - was really ill before the gig but you would never have known it from his/their performance!

The Magnificent had to pull out of this tour :(

Low Culture are going ahead without em though - it should be awesome. dead excited to see em!

if anyone was into that Chinese Telephones stuff i linked a few pages back, Low Culture are very much along those lines

La-Di-Da and Murray - lookin atchoo here. reckon you'll be well into em

The excellent Derby band The Little Explorer recently released their second album, which was recorded in 2006 but shelved for various reasons.
It's very, very good - I'll refrain from trying to describe it too much as my genre knowledge is very patchy, but definitely worth a listen. Shouty bits, twisty pretty instrumental bits, good tunes, etc:
http://thelittleexplorer.bandcamp.com/album/siderali
Most of them are in Crash of Rhinos now.
