Just in from Hyde Park.  Support acts meh, His Bobness was as close to Rockin' Bob as we're ever likely to see again.  And Neil Young was utterly brillsticks, doubly so on "Rocking In The Free World".

My back aches, my feet are killing me and I'd do it again tomorrow.  Though I'd probably need a wheelchair.

Anyone else not seeing the pics or is it just me?

I can, but that might be a cache thing.
I'll try again

Slightly lower-key than last Friday's entertainment but just as enjoyable.

Public Service Broadcasting at the Proms last night doing Race for Space with an orchestra and choir. Bloody brilliant and for a bunch of tie wearing tweedies they sure do rock!

Szun Waves. A trio of saxophonist, drummer and techy person with Mac and button things. They are sat near me in the Artist Village right now.  :P

Very interesting tight soundscapes, with three clever, accomplished musicians, glad I checked them out.

The Orb last night in Brighton. The venue had a club night later, so they were on at 8ish. It was a decks and laptop set, with a fun projection show and a dancer with hoola hoops for little fluffy clouds. Lots of fun, lots of dancing.

Kraftwerk:rewerk

An orchestral reimagining of kraftwerks werk...

Played by an orchestra with 25% identified as disabled. On a stage set with 64 separately amplified lines. Yes, that’s 64 amplifiers. Never heard an amplified orchestra like it. The musicianship was very good, and the sound quality outstanding. 

Conducted by Charles Hazlewood.

I saw Kraftwerk:rewerk when they came to Brighton - I agree, it was really good.

A few more from the weekend.

Some of you may recognise this guy


Brilliant musician from Mumbai, playing in the d&b Soundstage, a 64 amplifier system that presents the sound as it actually is, not through 2 channels. Outstanding.


Two of Rura, a high enegery band from the place that Boris forgot.




The Kraftwerk:rework - again in the d&b Soundstage, and the first time I've heard an amplified orchestra where you can hear all the instruments.


and finally the maestros again, sorry, couldn't resist

In my continuing recruitment drive - Withered Hand at the Old Cinema Laundrette* in Durham. Nearly a full band, just the drummer** missing. Cracking show, tiny audience. My favourite kind of gig!

*It really is a lanundrette - they play in front of the dryers.

:thumbsup: Saw the brothers in Brighton and Hammersmith last year. Missed them on the Wonky touring, those were my first shows since 2009. Damn good to have them back. And that staging is brilliant...
