generate the music that makes you feel better...

--
I've been reviewing gigs on here almost since I first started back in early 2004. I haven't always been very objective, I haven't always scored the gig out of ten, I often don't turn up early enough to see the support, and sometimes I've barely talked about the band at all....but for what it's worth, it's a record of one Nottingham based blogger's gig-going over the last few years.

Make of it what you will.

Plus I am absolutely hopeless at remembering what gigs I've got coming up and when, so a rolling list probably isn't that bad an idea either.......

Lists? It's what blogging's all about, innit? I'll be sticking a link to this on the right-hand margin somewhere and I'll keep it as up to date as I can.

I'm interested, even if nobody else is.

    I'm interested. (And in case you are, I would have liked to see The Young Knives win the Mercury Prize.)

    I honestly don't know how you work, blog, go to this many concerts, get married, and have a life outside of those things all in one year. Whew, I'm exhausted just listing it.
