Most boring weekend ever. My cousin is over from Scotland. There has been an awful lot of uncomfortable silences as we have nothing in common. Cant wait till he goes back home later today. Plus I am missing out on a lot of time which I need to spend on coursework.
Coursework is the evil of the world! I swear. Its stopping from spending any time studying for my GCSEs. Which reminds me I just got my timetable for them and holy fuck its actually scary thinking about it. The timetable just makes it all too real for me.
La Quiete on Thursday! Yeow. Cant wait for it. Should be amazing. Anyone else going?
For anyone going to La Quiete on the 10th of Mrach my zine should be out then. I keep saying about it being ready but this time it defintley will be for sure. Its got Cat on Form, Yakuza, Killing Spree, Betamax Format, Easpa Measa, a bit about my introduction to indie/punk/diy etc. Its pretty small only about 16 pages or so but I'm proud of it. It looks good cause Tessa and Vicky(FNB) done the design for it.
Ideas for my next zine are interviews with the Ex, Q and not U, Serpents, Kid Blunt, Contraband etc. Gonna try get Steve Albini and Steve Shelley(Sonic Youth) but God knows if that will happen. Maybe I should try Fugazi. Gonna have loads of reviews, bits on Lurgan scum, something about my phone call from Bob Weston, the Swans
Yes playing fast is no longer the way to go. Doom is the way I am operating now. Doom is the coolest thing ever. Slow and brutal. Much more intense than playing fast anyday. Its all about being heavy to me. Making people feel uncomfortable. Getting the volume up to 11 and making as much noise as possible.
The Melvins and the Swans are the best bands in the world ever. No argument. Gluey Porch Treatments and Children of God are the bible. Oh and Serpents from Dublin will kick everyones asses as they are better than everyone in Ireland ever. Somebody get them up to Belfast.
So in conclusion playing fast is last year and playing slow is what the kool kids are doing!
Today(technically yesterday but I cant sleep) was great!
I went to Belfast on the train this morning and met wee Leam and ginger Steve. Had a laugh the whole way down to Belfast with them. Then I met Gwendolin at the train station and we walked to some cool coffee place that she knows in some area of Belfast unknown to me. We talked a whole lot about music and her experiences living in America and she told me all about her experiences as tour manager for Sonic Youth and the Swans. I was so Jealous hearing that. Two of my favourite bands!!!
So after we left the coffee place we wandered about Belfast for a while and chatted. Then it was time to meet Ron for a while. Nice catching up with him. He brought us to the new Forbidden Planet which is kinda weird. The old place was so small and personal but this place is just so...well cold in a way. Not a big comic fan but that place lacked a certain feel. Next we walked about Belfast for a while in search of the new location of Good Vibrations with little success. So Ron left us up to Fear no Beer in the Menagerie. He didnt come in though. Dont think Acidtone tempted him!
Man it was weird in there today. It was like fuckin city hall. All the city hall suicide types were there to support the metal. Sinocence werent too bad. Not my thing but great at what they do! And theyre from Lurgan so I cant hate them really. Latex Spider Monkeys were great. They went on a wee bit too much but with experience they are gonna certinaly be big I think. Kinda like Bad Brains in a way.
Acidtone were THE WORST BAND I HAVE EVER WATCHED. I cringed the whole way through theyre set. It was painful. Generic bullshit metal. How anyone in their right mind likes them is beyond me. And they are getting picked up by sony. WTF?? They'll have their time in the spotlight and then be spat out for the next fad.
Oh and I got some print outs of my zine from Tessa and Vicky. Looks great. Cant wait to get it out now. A few weeks and I will hopefully.
Got the train home with the legend Kev Saxon.(Lurgan thing)
Anyway as I said great day. Had a great time chatting to Gwendolin. Nice to have somebody who had the same interests! Thanks Gwendolin!
should update this more regularly really. lots happened really in the last few days. first of all i broke up with my girlfriend helen on friday night. it was me that ended it but i still feel all upset about it. dont get me wrong i just wanted to be single but i still think she's a great person. gah and i done it all the wrong way when i dumped her. i was gonna do it face to face and i just couldnt. i seriously pussied out of it. so i ended up doing it by phone which was really just not a nice thing to do. i feel really bad about doing it that way and just hope she doesnt hate me for it. i guess i will just have to wait and find out cause i dont wanna go and talk to her now while she is still upset about everything.
i went to the third fear no beer in the menagerie on saturday afternoon by myself. was strange cause i usually always go somebody but i wasnt really that stuck for company as i just ended up talking to some friendly (hot) city hall goth chicks who tried to get me drunk but i decided it was best not to seeing as i wasnt in the mood and that i would be in a hell of a load of trouble when i got home. the first band who played were totally awful. seems to always be one really bad bands on the fear no beer bills and these guys took it to an extreme. total muse wannabees. made me cringe like fuck. sub60 exceeded my expectations but i then thought they were gonna be pop punk. sorta like oxes but alot more punky. the singing was kinda a bad thing.should stay instrumental. los cabras were fantastic. granted i dont even really dig that style they blew me away. those guys really know how to kick it live. dangerfields were great as well and andrew griswold said it was a weak show for them but i defintley enjoyed it. griswold even dedicated a song to me! hehe. talked to some new people like conor kane and dux and also i talked to fear no beer organisers vicki and tessa who are just lovely. eamon is also a cool guy as well. nice day. put me in a good mood after the day before.
back to school today! boohoo. god i hate that place
this weekend has been very strange. dont know why but its just felt so peculiar?!?
anyway friday i was tired so i didnt go out. first time i havent gone out on a friday for i dont know how long. but it was nice to relax.
saturday was pretty cool. i handed my notice in at sainsburys! hate that place so much. whats even better is that as soon as i handed my notice in i got my pay for all the work i had done.
conor came down to my house on saturday and we played guitar for a while and just generally chatted/complained about everything as we usually do. but its always good to have a big bitching session. we went out that night but it just ended up wandering the streets trying to avoid everyone totally. swear to god if i hang round with that group of fakers once more i am going to top myself or kill them all. for anyone who doesnt know what i am talking about. its like lurgans mini version of outside city hall on a saturday. everyone stands at a street corner and either drinks a carry out or smokes weed and pretends to be all gothy. i hate hanging round with them but there is nobody else really.
today was mainly spent sleeping and working on my zine.
school tomorrow! ah i hate that place but i will leave that story for another day.
decided to resurrect this thing again. its been ages and i cant be bothered with xanga. nobdoy uses it.
anyway so thursday night was fucking amazing. i went to see the killing sprees last show in the pavillion with yakuza, pugent sound and betamax format. went down with scully though he seemed happy to sulk at the side at all for no apparent reason. ah well fuck it, it was his lost!
yakuza were amazing. better than the other times i saw them. cant wait for their new songs to be released.
betamax format were literally mind expanding. loved every minute of them.
pugent sound were a really good band but they kept having to tune up which pissed me of big style cause it killed the momentum of their set. but their cd i got with kid blunt is great.
what i saw of the killing spree kicked ass big style. cant believe thats it probaly. they are just too good to split up. though it was funny when gwendolin went up on stage and asked bernard to say that i was leaving and everyone said bye!
and claire "rudedoodle" spence provided the biggest laugh of the night with her drunkeness and constant feeling me up.
i wish everynight was as fun as that was but it isnt. boo hoo for me. its weird going back to school after it. i feel like such an outsider or something when i am in school but down there its like its everything i ever wanted.
so support local music you bastards!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
