The Eighties Matchbox B-Line Disaster

So, who was at the Scala gig last night? Just like the last one in Camden, the crowd was very friendly. TEMBD's set was... punishing. I was right down the front and there seemed to be very little, if any, chance to catch your breath. Even for the new material, people wanted to dance/mosh/jump around. The only real break came before the encore. I'm absolutely knackered today. There was a lot of new material, which sounded fantastic, I have to say, and much heavier than the last album. Thre was no sign of any of the 'lighter' songs from that album either. So no Dancing Girls, or I Could Be An Angle, or Puppy Dog Snails.

The first support act was enjoyable, but nothing too special. I went back into the bar after about two minutes of the second support act, who just didn't appeal to me at all. I watched the third support act from the balcony, and really enjoyed them, although the people down the front being menaced by the tracksuit-clad singer might disagree there. Does anybody know what they were called?

Underworld gig last night [May. 1st, 2007|01:50 pm]
The Eighties Matchbox B-Line Disaster

Anyone else go? Was a really good atmosphere in the crowd and it was nice to hear a mixture of new and old stuff, but no Puppy Dog Snails or Dancing Girls, and no encore either :(

Oh, and I don't know who the support band were, but I thought they sounded dire.

NEWS! [Mar. 23rd, 2007|11:37 am]
The Eighties Matchbox B-Line Disaster
From Darth Twitch himself:

'Tonight we finished mixing a forthcoming EP, we haven't decided a title yet. It's a real step forward for the band in terms of inginuity, creativity, delivery and activity! Try to imagine the fastest, heaviest surf music ever made and cross it with an ugly opera. The tracks will be 'In The Garden' 'You Say You're The Doctor, But I Know You're The Mister' 'Horses Can Swim' 'Terrible Night'.
You can hear some in demo form on the myspace, but they aren't a patch on whats to come soon. It should be out May/June. See you on the other side!

Holy fuck! :)

GIG! DJ Sets! EP Launch! NEW SONGS! CRIKEY!!! [Mar. 12th, 2007|03:49 pm]
The Eighties Matchbox B-Line Disaster
Oh my giddy Aunt…

The Eighties Matchbox B-Line Disaster are playing a GIG (a real one! Honest!) at Camden Underworld on 30 April 2007 (Outbreak festival, whatever that is) and GUESS WHAT I HEARD? There may be an EP being launched that very same evening.

Now, as I will be unable to get to London on that hallowed day (unless I get in for free and get put up for free too – any offers? I’m clean! Well, clean-ish!), could I PLEASE ask one of you to kindly take some piccies for me and see if you can grab me some stuff too? I’d be appreciating it!

Also: There will be DJ sets from members of the band as follows:

21 March 2007 - Halloween Club, Volks Tavern, Brighton (go here: http://www.myspace.com/haloween_club )

30 March 2007 - We Have Your Children @ Southend on Sea

From their oldest internet lover.
