I haven't been updating this blog due to being unable to make the copy / paste controls work. I used to write most of it offline and then post it by copying, but presumably they've disabled that to stop people copying things from other websites?
Anyway Grinderman are soon playing Manchester Academy which will be a good gig, sadly the same night Nancy Elizabeth is playing Band on the Wall, and soon after on October 1st John Tchicai and Tony Marsh are playing the Carlton Club (113 Carlton Road, Whalley Range).
The new Swans album (out towards the end of the month) is awesome. They're also touring in October, as are Melt Banana, The Ex, Mudhoney, Killing Joke, Einsturzende Neubauten.
Neubauten and Killing Joke play London on the same night!
I'll just have to make like a Meat Puppet II and
"Split Myself in Two"
Looks like The Ex and Melt Banana are playing Islington Mill on October 20th which should be the best gig Manchester gets in 2010.
