    A Cherry Ghost
  1. Yeah for sure, and I think because it suited CMA's set so much the vibe kind of stuck for a while. I wonder if there just wasn't an appropriate venue available when it was booked. It was a top show though, it's an amazing sounding room (though I heard more from the amps on stage than the PA).
  2. I was at the front and man it was weird at first being seated that close for a gig. Tried standing up but no one really joined in until the encore. I know Mogwai played there a few years back but it's so strange being seated for a rock gig in the stalls. It was excellent once I got used to it though, and being like 3-4 metres away from the band at the most was mind blowing. I'm a musician and geeked out about being able to see how they actually play the parts right in front of me. Closest I've been for a Wilco gig which happily coincided with the best performance of Impossible Germ
  3. I've listened to it a few times with nowhere near as much attention as I'd like to give. It's like a late period Dylan or Neil Young record. They've long since gone past owing me anything, and pretty much anything they release I'll give some attention to. This isn't hugely different from what Jeff was doing with Tweedy and his solo records. I don't hear the band like I did on Ode To Joy, or TWL, or similar. That's ok, I am absolutely fine with artists burning through their pandemic material whichever way they see fit. It's conflicted and slightly weird and I'll probably understand
  4. I met David Grohl twice in the space of a month playing festivals and he was a tremendous guy. He is kind of the Mayor of Rock though.
  5. This guy sounds like a total pro.
  6. It should be ok once your vaccination rate catches up. We seem to be doing fine in the UK now the younger age groups are increasingly dosed, that was the only group that was lagging a bit. I wouldn't blink at attending an indoor gig now.
  7. What was the reason for the shows being moved outdoors, cases bad in those areas?
  8. My pet already has a name and a pedigree name, however I think a Tweedy name is needed. Incidentally, my other half wanted to call him Jeff Tweedy as Gilmore Girls/Paul Anker reference...
  9. I miss this every time as I'm in the UK, but I've signed up for Substack. I've requested the occasional guitar lesson.
  10. Necro-thread, but this is the closest I've seen anyone come with tabbing this, thanks! If anyone can help me out with the initial freak-out section it would be much appreciated, I can't quite work it out exactly. I can get close like some of the live versions but I'm trying to match the record.
