    Gordon Giltrap last night at the Lights Andover was a superb, intimate, concert where he played solo and displayed all his mastery of both acoustic and electric guitars. We were in row 2 and right in front of him so we could see all his fingering very clearly. GG had an easy way with the audience, regaled us with stories of his experiences and played some utterly compelling music. I can't remember the last time I felt so relaxed at a concert, especially after a day's work. Most enjoyable.

    Right, let's get this new one started.

    Last night I went to see Between The Buried And Me an incredible American prog/metal group at Birmingham Academy 3.

    I've only heard a couple of their albums, so I was going in a bit blind on this one (they have done about 5 albums, a live album and I think a couple of EPs too.)

    The musicianship was amazing, and although I will admit their style certainly not for everyone, I really enjoyed the show.

    They are a hard band to describe, their music shifts styles, keys and time signatures very quickly, as they incorporate rock, metal, jazz, math rock, and melodic bits some of which can sound like Porcupine Tree or Muse. They are also rather heavy!



    We met them all afterwards, they were happy to sign all of our stuff, all in all a great night!

    I like the heavier bits, a bit like Cephalic Carnage, but the 'clean singing' bits I struggle with. Cool band to come to the UK though!

    WOW.... I've heard of them, but actually not heard them before...

    That certainly blasted out the cobwebs, great stuff.... can you recommend an album?
