20/2/18 - Temperance Movement, Junction, Cambridge. Very good 8/10
20/3/18 - Jonathan Wilson, Omera, London. OK, but underwhelming 6/10
22/3/18 - Turin Brakes, The Stables, MK. Excellent, Bass player is still a dick. 8.5/10
27/3/18 - Steven Wilson, RAH. First half & AS,BNH Stunning. Took a while to get going again. 8/10
28/3/18 - Steven Wilson, RAH. Outstanding.  Solo set great. Better view, despite cheaper seats. 9.5/10
29/3/18 - Steven Wilson, RAH. Crowd great (apart from annoying French people talking), less "banter" between songs due to filming. 9/10
6/4/18 - Earthless, Bonkers, breathless and fab 8/10 (would have been more without the annoying "moshers"
13/4/18 - Ezio, MK11. New venue for me, very small. Probably about 50 people in attendance. Good show. 7/10
14/5/18 - Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds, Watford Colosseum. Small venue for Noel (2000). Great crowd, great setlist and great "singalong" fun 8/10.
3/6/18 - James Bay, Cambridge Corn Exchange. 6/10. Better than expected
19/6/18 - Pearl Jam O2, London Postponed
30/6/18 - Jack Savoretti, Petersfield. 8/10. Lovely venue, great performance.
4/7/18 - Supersonic Blues Machine, SBE. 8/10. Very good, bonus appearance from Davy Knowles as support
17/7/18 - Pearl Jam. O2. 8/10. 3 Hours, 30+ songs. Excellent
19/7/18 - Oli Brown Band. Stables, MK 7/10. Great to see the young man going back to his blues roots.
26/7/18 - Del Amitri, Hammersmith Apollo. 9/10. There can't be many bands with as deep a back catalogue as the Dels. Got to see Q & Oz outside afterwards as well
1/8/18 - Geroge Ezra, Sandown Races. 6/10, not really my cup of tea, seems like a nice bloke
31/8/18 - Hats Off To Led Zeppelin, MK Stables. 7/10 pretty good all round. Good selection of songs, not all obvious and not too much self indulgence
4/9/18-  Devon Allman Project, Islington Assembly Halls. 7/10. Odd show with headline duties shared with Duane Betts.
6/9/18 - Jawbone, MK Stables, 6/10. Exceptional playing, but a bit soulless
15/9 - La Villa Strangiato, Sutton 7/10 Much better than expected. Worst thing they played was Chemistry and that was the opener. The singer needs to learn the words!
6/10/18 - The Pineapple Thief. SBE. 7.5/10. Harrison more integrated. Extra guitar has tightened things up..
11/10/18 - John Lees Barclay James Harvest, Stables, MK. 7/10. Solid, if unspectacular.
5/11/18 - The Sheepdogs, Borderline London 7.5/10. New album not great to my ears, new material better in a live environment.
9/11/18 - 9 Below Zero, Stables, MK. Dad rock at its finest. 8/10
10/11/18 - Riverside, Electric Ballroom, Camden. New material not working for me and they played the whole of the album. New light rig is good. 6.5/10
12/11/18 - MC50, SBE. Wayne Kramer phenominal for 70+. Could have been a car crash, but was really rather good. 7.5/10
23/11/18 – Aussie Pink Floyd, New Theatre, Oxford. 7.5/10. Stunningly played, great lights, but they are a tribute band at the end of the day. Set list was a little unadventurous for me
30/11/18 - Bravado, Ruislip
7/12/18 - James + The Charlatans. Wembley Arena. 6/10 - 8.5/10. Poor sound for the Charlatans. Vocal was dreadful. James were on fine form.
11/12/18 - The Magpie Salute. Electric Ballroom.
15/12/18 - Ezio, Junction, Cambridge

10th Dec - Von Hertzen Brothers  - Wedgewood Rooms, Southsea - 8/10.

Points deducted for Mikko's shot voice, points added for Kie's funny faces and daft hat.
Set contained a marvellous triple whammie of Long Lost Sailor/Sunday Child/Coming Home. Ace

Points deducted for Mikko's shot voice,
Mikko apologised for sounding a bit Joe Cockerish on Friday, but thought it apt being as the band were in Sheffield.

 My gig list for the year. Not as long as it should be. I must get out more.
Still some great gigs.



10/3/18 Amplifier + Awooga Crawford Arms Milton Keynes
  8/10 2 great bands with 2 great albums in the back room of a pub. This is what rock music is meant to be about
13/4/18 Marillion Corn Exchange Cambridge
  8/10 they may well be at the top of their game ever at the moment
6/7/18 Roger Waters Hyde Park
  7/10 as subtle as a brick through your window but knows how to fill a royal park
16/10/18 Coheed and Cambria Roundhouse London
  5/10 went for volume over sound quality which lost all the melody and subtly.
3/11/18 Slayer + Lamb of God + Anthrax Wembley Arena
  6/10 crap sound quality at the back nearly ruined a great gig
4/11/18 Sigrid O2 Academy Birmingham
  8/10 she is going to a huge pop star.
7/11/18 Slayer Birmingham Arena
  9/10 position right in front of sound desk, perfect sound for a ferocious gig
24/11/18 Ian McNabb, The Slaughtered Lamb London
  8/10 Like putting on an old glove you know exactly what you are going to get with Ian, great songs, camaraderie and biting wit.
3/12/18 Muse, Royal Albert Hall  9/10 By their standards a paired down show but still mesmerizing.
11/12/18 Magpie Salute, Electric Ball London  7/10 They are not The Black Crowes but still great playing and good songs.
