Beth Rowley at the Lantern, Halifax. Just Beth and her guitarist doing tracks from the latest album. Interesting to hear the differences in presentation of the songs. Then three songs with Josh Flowers who was the support brought lots of new textures to the music. Finally, an accapello, unamplified version of 'Nobody's fault but mine' (from her first album).

Saw UFO on their 50th anniversary tour. One of my favourite all time bands who i have seen more than any other. Another great night but tinged with sadness because this will be the last time with Phil Mogg calling it a day. Just glad that bands do not retire at the age I did as it would mean very few live listens. :grin:

And northwest of Pegasus
Flew into the light of Deneb
Sailed across the Milky Way

Stranglers (Established 1974) O2 Academy Leeds
A bit of a Trigger's broom group. Jean-Jacques Burnel and Dave Greenfield still soldering on. Baz Warne doing a very passage Hugh Cornwell on vocals and guitar but them blasting out a set which was all the classic stranglers stuff with one or two newer songs in between and them and the audience enjoying it all immensely - which is what live is all about. Mybe I need to dig the old vinyl out.

Dr. Feelgood as support - I wasn't sure whether to go off to get some Status Quo or George Thorogood after that set.

Saw the Stranglers a year ago and it was a good night. Different venues on this tour.

Bob Mould band at the Electric Ballroom

Very tight performance from terrific musicians that ripped through a set from early Husker Du to his latest solo stuff.

Accomplished guitar playing as well, from one of the godfathers of post-punk melodic noise making
