  1. Another one gone for me. Frank Turner at Exeter on Thursday. Expecting David Gray at Cardiff next Sunday to go the same way. Bossman
  2. No need to worry now as I feared. EC has announced the cancellation of the remaining 3 shows on Facebook anyway. Gutted given the terrific reviews, but fully understanding the reasons. Bossman
  3. Interesting. I didn’t really get ‘Believers’ but I adored ‘The Hipsters’ and enjoyed ‘A New House’. I’m really liking ‘City Of Love’ though and MCR Calling (to get back to the thread). Perhaps I need to revisit ‘Believers’ Bossman
  4. If the show is on, I’m going to Cardiff on Monday. reviews have been terrific. Bossman

  6. The new single, ‘Hang In There Girl’
  7. Anyone else loving Ashley McBryde? In many ways the antithesis of a Nashville country music star, not particularly groomed, tattooed and not stylised her songs on the album ‘Girl Going Nowhere’ were mesmerising. The title track made the hairs on my neck stand up in the huge Arena at a London’s O2 at the Country to Country festival last year. I’m super pumped to see her again at Bristol this Autumn and the 4 songs previewed from the new album all are good, if perhaps not on the same level as the last album, perhaps they are just a little more leaning towards commercial. I really think she’s great though... sorry if there’s an existing thread. I didn’t find it. Bossman
  8. Ashley McBryde just announced 6 or so UK shows around September time and I will be moving heaven and earth to secure tickets for her Bristol show this coming Friday. She is terrific.
  9. Haha, well we have Brian Fallon, Bristol, DBT, London and Jason Isbell, London in common, so send us a message before Brian maybe...
