So I said I'd report back on the Spitfires gig.

I went to see them last week and am happy to report it was a great evening. The venue was full with a good mix from the older, portly balding types to a youthful twenty something and yours truly somewhere in between. Everyone was up for a good time and when Billy and the boys came on and started their high octane show the crowd got well and truly into it. The set lasted a little over an hour with the obligatory encore and if truth be told I would be very glad to see them again on their return. I'm looking forward to seeing what their third album brings when released this year. Recommended.

Are you in the ROI Mutley?

Is so you may not have caught the Spitfires live on the Andrew Marr show on Sunday morning. The sung Move On.
Quite a bizarre set up for them but maybe chosen because of the political content of the song.
The Mods are back exclaimed Marr.

Yeah Woody, born, bread and buttered.

The Andrew Marr show is definitely a bizarre window to display your goods......
If you ooze masculinity, like some of us do, you have no reason to fear pink.

Last weekend I attended my annual appointment with the Fleshtones, I must have seen them live 10 times! As we got to the club after a whole day partying (a friend's birthday, beginning at lunch time), I wasn't in the best of shapes to fully enjoy the gig. Besides, they began playing past 1 a.m., very late even for spanish standards.

But those limitations notwithstanding, who wouldn't surrender to such a fun machine? The club was the same of last year's gig, a perfect place and sound, and the show wasn't miles away either, though as the place was packed (last year it was a more "intimate" affair), they restorted to a more "gimmicky" approach to please the crowd; that is, leading the audience to do silly things like spinning round themselves or kneel and crouch, while Zaremba and Streng left the stage and played among the people... Tricks they've been doing for years and still work.

Another subtle difference with last year was the choice of tunes, as the bulk of the repertoire came then from their last LP, while this time 2 or 3 F-Tones classics made it to the stage, among them "The right side of a good thing" and the timeless "American beat", that closed the show.

Two other groups played, but I had gone for the Fleshtones. I catched the end of Los Radiadores show, but tbh I wasn't impressed. An average power pop band at best. I've heard good things about the garage-punk band the Hollywood Sinners, but they played after the Fleshtones and there was no gas left in this old body.
