Had a lovely night out watching Ladytron at KOKO in Mornington Cresent last night with mooncadet. Ladytron were brilliant live and will almost certainly be featuring very high up on my Top Ten Gigs of 2005 when I get round to writing it up close to the years end. I love their vocals and the haunting melodies. Their live act is supplement by two additional members (either two guitars or guitar + bass - I'm not entirely sure as both additional members weren't all that prominent on the stage ;p). KOKO is a wonderful venue, certainly one to try and see more bands at.

Afterwards Mel and I headed back into Camden and chatted for ages at The Worlds End about most things under the sun. I've also become more enamoured by Magnars (both KOKO and The Worlds End had bottles which was pleasing) and I think it's now become my Cider of choice :)

Just to prove that a city of 10 million people is indeed a very small place I got onto the tube around midnight to discover Sister #2 (Dominique) in the same carriage section! I'd love to know the chances of these things happening but they seem to occur more often than not which is a bit freaky!

Oh, ukmonty I thought you'd like to know that Alex and Wendy are expecting a baby! I saw Mike R earlier and he was out drinking with Alex, Griff and Adam last night when Alex told him!

snesgirl - don't know if you know but a band called Fort Minor are playing at the Mean Fiddler on Monday 14th November, The lead singer is from Linkin Park so I thought you might be interested :p. Stargreen has tickets for just under £15. Apparently Fort Minor is more on the hip-hoppy end of things but should still be interesting. I'll be there (hopefully)!

oh i know all about fort minor....
but I have no desire to see them live. It is indeed a solo project from the MC of Linkin Park, (Mike Shinoda) but it's glossy hip hop, not my bag baby! thanks for the heads up though :)

I look forward to your gig round up of the year, and is it okay if I call you on sunday to talk about meet up times for Wednesday and Lacuna coil?

Re: oh i know all about fort minor....
Sundays fine for a phonecall. I'll be at work but the mobile will be switched on (whether it's in an area with signal though is another matter! :p).

I probably have a lunchtime meeting tomorrow but I won't know what time they're turning up until I get a phonecall in the morning.

Talk to you tomorrow!

Magner's!
Hmm, another Magner's victim eh? You would not believe just how popular that stuff has suddenly become. At my local pub (which is a small single-room Victorian job) they get through 6 to 8 cases each weekend, plus another couple each lunchtime when the pensioners are in.

Ladytron were awesome!...and the night before i went to see the kills at the forum..they were amazing too!

Re: Ladytron!!
Cool, glad you enjoyed the gig. The drummer is a regular memebr of the band I believe.

Btw, who are you?

Re: Ladytron!!
i'm pretty sure the drummer is an extra - ladytron is a quadroped who use synthesizers...at least from their website, etc..double checked the faces there and the faces i saw - had a camera hehehe

i'm just a passer by..hehe..saw your review of ladytron basically and just wanted to add a comment (so i did..^_^)

Re: Ladytron!!
I'd not really heard much of Ladytron before a few weeks ago when I caught a video of theirs on one of the music channels. That prompted me to buy the latest CD which has been one of the most listened to since it arrived. Now have the second CD and am currently waiting for the first one to finally hit my doormat!

Glad to hear The Kills were also very good. Will have to keep an eye out for them. Saw Kaiser Chiefs, Maximo Park and The Cribs last night. Didn't think much of The Cribs but Maximo Park certainly had there moments and the kaisers are always a very entertaining live act. Good fun :D
