Hugh Cornwell

Hugh Cornwell is touring the UK this month. The show consists of two sets, the first is his new album Hooverdam and the second a complete performance of Rattus in its entirety. Smart move! That'll pack the punters in.

I hope he brings a keyboard player in, otherwise it won't work nearly as well.

I saw Hugh at Rebellion 2008 and he was surprisingly good, but then rather smartly he played a punk set, unlike The Stranglers who headlined an earlier one and didn't and consequently bombed.

The dates are:

13th NOV - NEWCASTLE, O2 Academy

14th NOV - GLASGOW, ABC

20th NOV - LONDON, O2 Academy Islington

21st NOV - OXFORD, O2 Academy

27th NOV - MANCHESTER,  Academy 1

28th NOV - BIRMINGHAM, O2 Academy

Leeds Record Fair

Leeds Record Fair

Leeds Record Fair that was to be help this Saturday 31st October has been cancelled.  A statement from the organiser reads:

This is because of and English Defence League demonstration in City Square outside the Queens Hotel on the same day.

This it itself would not necessarily cause the event to be cancelled. However I've just been informed that the pull in area in front of the Hotel from where we unload is to be used by the Police as a 'command area ' and will be full of their vehicles and possibly cordoned off.

All business's and pubs around City Square are to close also.
