Rain the Cult, Joli Blon, Michele Stodart, The Tuts, Youn Sun Nah, Estrons

Bands I won’t be going out of my way to see again


Best Gig

It has to be the Slaves at the Horn. Great to see a band go back to the small venues they toured in, on their way up.

Best new band

Not many good new bands. As it was the first time I’d seen Neil Hannon with his The Divine Comedy hat. I’ll select them.
