    Went to see The View in the Garage on Saturday, was really good seen them a few times and that was the best i have seen them, probably cos they all looked sober for a change, 10th anniversary of 1st album so they played the whole of that then a few off their other albums.

    Nah Primus is the better option for me. Better band and half the price.

    Surely you will sell then

    Yeah, saw them in 2014 at Usher Hall. Ace venue too.

    I read somewhere that this might be their last album so there might not be too many chances left to see them. Could be BS tho. The new single is decent.

    I was at that gig also.
    I'd hope this is nae their last, but the individuals do seem more and more involved with other projects between tours/albums now.

    Sodom, Classic Grand 14/5

    Just in the door. Bloody hell i enjoyed that. Gelsenkirchens finest exporters of the thrash Sodom playing their first ever Scottish gig. They took their time, 36 bloody years to be precise.

    The Saw Is The Law, Witchhammer, Augsebomt, Remember the Fallen and the f@cking spectacular Agent Orange included with a very well done cover of Motorheads Iron Fist and eh....... Surfin' Bird. It was exactly as i thought it would be. A great band who skills have been honed to perfection over the years. Dinna leave it another 36 years

    Have to say, i much prefer the German thrash to the Yanks. Sodom, Kreator and Destruction. Thats one hel of a trio of excellence(controversial)

    Iron Maiden . Hydro. First time I've saw them, was good. However .., Im standing about halfway back from the stage to the right a bit., so theres wee bit of space round about us. What is it with these two drunk p.ricks that have to jump up and down and barge into folk in that area?Go to the front you c.unts.
    Bruce Dickinson is thanking the audience and makes special mention of the audience at the front of the stage (who are usually the hardcore,) and these two drunk c.unts 'cheer' as if they are part of that. NO you're not. You're standing halfway back from the stage to the right a bit. You're not up the front you annoying c.unts.

    Good gig though.God knows how he sings like that.

    They did Pac. Wouldn't say I'm a huge fan either but just fancied going along. Another thing which I found a bit sh1te was this paperless ticket scheme ( to deter touts). You have to turn up with photo ID,a print out of your confirmation email and the credit/bank car which you bought the ticket with.
    I always like collecting my tickets but all you have to show for it is a sh1tey wee white stub.For 67 odd quid you should expect a decent looking ticket when you get through the barrier.

    I collect all my tickets too. It actually grates on me when I go to a gig and there's no ticket.

    It's ace looking back at all the gigs.

    Went to see Foy Vance last night at the lemon tree. It was decent, for fans of Americana folky type stuff and the blues. He's Irish himself like.
