    The Civil Wars - Union Chapel
    Tues 27.09.11

    Fantastic show in a beautiful venue and I was sat in row two behind Adele! That girl is getting as large as Alison Moyet used to be

    That she did Martin

    This was one of the best gigs this year and taking The Wall out, probably my number one - a truly magical evening. These guys are IMO a bit special with a great story about how they formed. There are on Jools Holland tomorrow (Tuesday 4th Oct) and worth checking out - may not be everyone's cuppa, but worth a knowledge check at least, as they are on the rise
    Some of the most wonderful vocal harmonies I have heard in sometime.



    I had quite a lot of banter with them during the show too, which was a hoot - great sense of humour and right there when it comes to English wit and repartee.

    Spiritualized @ Leamington Assembly

    This is the second time I've seen Spiritualized at this venue, both times it's been used as a warm up gig (there's some vague connection with the venue owner), last time for the 'Songs in A&E' tour, this time for their 'Royal Albert Hall' gig which I think is tonight...get yourself down if you're in the London area

    For the first half of the gig we were treated to their forthcoming album in it's entirety (apparently to be released early next year), the band have been bolstered by an additional guitarist, and the result is an even bigger wall of sound...more reminiscent of their 'ladies & gentlemen...' period.

    I was close enough to the front to appreciate why Jason Pierce has taken to sitting throughout the gig (in his usual stage right position), his legs look like pipe cleaners. Presumably as a result of years of ill health, or drug abuse, or more likely a combination of the two.

    The second section was a scorching trip through the highlights of their back catalogue, including a Spacemen 3 cover, which was nice.

    Here's the set list from their gig in Edinburgh the previous evening (the same set)...

    This was probably the best I've seen them since the late nineties, well worth catching the tour if you can, well their one date at the RAH anyway
    Cheers, Will

    That certainly blasted out the cobwebs, great stuff.... can you recommend an album?
    Sorry Dan, missed this!

    Anomalies is fab. Utterly scary opening track. Highly recommended!

    Will... Spiritualized are a great live band. I once had a completely trancendental moment with Spiritualized at Bristol's Colston Hall. Almost floated out of my seat during Electric Mainline!

    I saw the Specials last night at Wolverhampton Civic...

    it was the most fun I've had in ages. And you could buy a recording of the concert on CD when you left the venue. Don't mind if I do!

    I had a quick listen, the sound quality is surprisingly good.
