The Long Blondes

Didn't get round to writing this up last week. Last seen 4th on the bill on the NME new bands tour they were obviously chuffed to bits to be filling the same room as headliners. It was a pretty blinding set and I think they were right to finish on a high note and not bother with encores. Support was from Monkey Swallows The Universe (pleasant, and one track I recognised from the radio and liked, love to hear more) and the 1990s (rock, reasonably good but didn't grab me). Ernie writes more here. Like him I'll probably buy the album, but I've promised myself to lay off the CDs until after Christmas.

Oh and this was my 24th proper gig of this year, which means I beat last year's total of 24, since I've got tickets for 4 more already (Opeth, Less Than Jake/Dropkick Murphys, Ezio, Dirty Pretty Things). Whitby, Reading, Girton Ball and Glastonbury don't count.
