    Primus, Roundhouse, 20/6

    Now im off my high i can review.

    Wow f@cking wow. What a gig, what a band, what a venue

    Day started off with a few beers around Camden including in Belgo Noord(love that place) and Dingwalls in the scorching heat. Easy 30 degrees. Good chilled oot afternoon

    Headed to the Roundhouse at doors excited like a kid a christmas. Got my tour sark and then entered the hall. Some place. Alot of history too. Was impressed by the ease of getting pints. Always a must in music venues. (ABC is good for this) the half an hour i had to wait for the band felt like 2 hours. when Mr Claypool and co entered at 8 i fell into a trance. These guys have been top of my band hit list for years and years and i finally got to see their wizardary. Les Claypool is the best bassist in the world. Argue all you want but he is no doubt about it. A genius. This was "an evening with" affair made up of two sets and lasted 2 1/2 hours. But it easnt enough

    "Here come the B@stards" "Wynonas Big Brown Beaver" "The Heckler" "John of the Rocks" "Southbound Pachyderm" "Jerry Was A Racecar Driver" "Lee van Cleef" all in the but dissapointingly no "Tommy the Cat", "Pudding Time" "John the Fisherman" or "Shake Hands With Beef" but canna complain 21 tunes and it was a joy to watch. F@cking brilliant

    Hope i get a another gig in the Roundhouse. I like it.

    Also have to mention, i flew to luton from Inverness and stayed in an appartment on Finchley road. 80 quid all in. Luton to West Hampstead was only 25 mins on the train.

    Cheaper and easier than going to Glasgow

    Only Van Halen left to tick off now

    Suffocation Glasgow in August. Home for that too. Sweet


    Pauldolski, my pals been to the last 2 Rambling Mans and loves it. Hes going again this year. Trying to get me to go but im nae able This years bill is ace. UFO and ZZ Top is enough but Heavy Devy Townsend, Extreme, BSR and Dokken will be a laugh, theres also Kenny Wayne Shephard whos a guilty pleasure, Graham Bonnet(great voice) and Dan Baird of The Georgia Satelites fame. Id f@cking love to go but im affshore

    I'm going to see them at Glasgow Green in a couple of weeks. It's not a band I could ever get excited about the missus wants to go. Belle & Seb supporting which will be good, as long as they don't play their gash tunes

    My mates brother is in Belle and Sebastian. I'll ask if he can play the gash ones.

    I didn't get excited about Radiohead until recently. Maybe an age thing, like getting into Springsteen and uncomfortably liking Ryan Adams as I get older.

    What age do I have to be to finally get Lo Fidelity All-stars?

    They're tremendous live, as they were last night. I'm going to the Manchester date as well as Glasgow, with New Order in between.

    Also got Arab Strap, LCD Soundsystem, Godspeed You! Black Emperor and Run The Jewels & Danny Brown in the next few months.

    Never got in to Radiohead. Even last night, I tried to watch some of their set but I can't stand the vocals.

    The line up for true north is decent again this year. Arab Strap at The Tivoli being my highlight.

    Nice to see plenty of love for Arab Strap. They're a national treasure

    Theres an easy way to tell the difference. If Stuart Murdoch is dancing to it, it's gash

    They certainly are. This'll be the third time I've seen them in a year. Was at Barrowlands last year, then saw them in Primavera at the start of this month. All the way to Barcelona and end up seeing Arab Strap, Mogwai and the Fannies!

    Arab Strap at the bandstand? I'm not going if it's wet.
