"Here we Fucking Go!" with Glasvegas setting the world alight.



Here’s a few thoughts on the recent Glasvegas gig I went to:
Band of the moment in the media; “defining a generation like Oasis did“, dunno about that. Far better than Oasis, less swagger, more sincere and musically adventurous.
Scala was sold out, tickets going for £100 on eBay, nice to see in times of economic trouble people can still afford a night out. £100!!! For fucks sake!!!
Great little venue, minimum security, good atmosphere.
Audience was of an older generation, less of an outing for the young fashionisters, more a gathering of the dispossessed and the disenchanted.
No encore, no chat.
Like The Velvet Underground meets The Clash. Not only is the singer the spitting image of a young Joe Strummer, but the bass player was pulling some fine Paul Simonon poses.
great gig. Great band, forget the hype and “don’t put your life in the hands of a rock’n’roll band” even though I don’t think Glasvegas will let you down, cos they seem to genuine for that. Only time will tell how they cope with the burden placed on their shoulders of being seen as the best new band in Britain.
Anyway if you fancy a blast, here’s a copy of their Second Demo and early singles. You know what to do don’t ya.. Click, CLICK!
