Bellowhead Queens Hall Edinburgh

We wuz there... a bit to the right (with a glass of beer..) This is Bellow head's concert at The Queen's Hall, Edinburgh 21 November 2012

Absolutely really fab stuff - much better, in fact, than this video which doesn't quite capture the base lines rubbing intimately with yr arse and the sheer jumping joy of the whole thing.
But anyway, I didn't record it, so I can't whinge and this lass done well and it's the earliest posting of this fabidozy concert.

Oh cool. Would love to see Bellowhead some time.

Have you come across the Hut People? There's just two of them and they're from Hull - well sort of. We saw them at Whitby Musicport in October and they came to Sheffield a couple of weekends back. Soo much percussion. I ended up going a buying a new box to drum!

They're utterly thrilling, aren't they?! Glad you had a good time.

Sounds good! You can't beat a bit of live music!

I not very familiar with Bellowhead's music, although I know they are highly thought of. The bloke in the house behind us is a big fan, though.

But there is something about the folk/rock mix that is hard to dislike, and I've had many a great evening in the company of such bands: the Oysterband, for example, really do this well in a live setting. A bunch of mates, some rock-driven folk music and a few pints of real ale - it doesn't get much better! Particularly on a rotten winter evening!

Tony - Not come across the Hut People - but I'llkeep an eye out - or maybe an ear.. This lot were supported by three Swiss lads playing cajun/rock music - very good, but in French (nous dits "pah"!)
Louise - me lugs are still buzzin, (For a translation of this phrase use Google translate)
Jules - Oysterband ar eplayingQueens Hall in a week or two. Very tempted... but this was a treat - hotel, first class travel (goes quicker than the rest of the train y'know...) and so on.

Great night out aren't they? We've also seen Spiers and Boden live on their own too. Just as good.
