Top contributors: 19th – 25th October
Another week, another load of great contributions to share with you… There’s Morrissey setlists galore, more awesome reviews from BrunoMac and a variety of ticket stubs to browse through courtesy of duanos00. Here’s the leader-boards for this week and a selection of some particularly interesting additions:
duanos00 added the setlist from last Fridays Sonic Youth gig as well as a load of Smashing Pumpkins ones, including this one from the 1992 Reading Festival. While iheartmusic has also added some physical setlists, such as this one from a 2002 Something Corporate gig:
It’s, sadly, been fairly quiet on the review front this week – but BrunoMac has continued to add more priceless short but sweet anecdotes of his past gig experiences:
“The Mondays’ performances were so unrecognisably shambolic that the person behind us shouting for ‘Mad Cyril’ continued to do so even after they’d played it. The tickets were competition prizes so we didn’t care.
Can’t remember 808 State being there, but MC Buzz B was, and he was utterly, pathetically crap.”
“All of Queen’s set bar Brian May’s guitar solo was amazing; in particular, 120,000 pairs of hands doing the ‘Radio Ga Ga’ clapping and, afterwards, rounding a corner to see thousands of people swarming down a hillside.
God knows what Belouis Some (the opener) was doing on the same bill as Queen and Status Quo. He was crap and hid behind his backing singers when bottles started flying. Quo were alright and Big Country were pretty good.”
While iheartmusic has added the cream of the crop from recent New York shows, including Lightspeed Champion in a full-on wizard outfit:
…as well as shots from the CMJ Music Marathon – which is sure to give anyone not based in New York massive gig-envy.
The Video leader-board stays pretty much the same as last week, with Mash1982 at the top again, but iheartmusic and funky switching places. There’s videos to enjoy from the likes of Ray Davies to the much-hyped The xx.
