My gigography

Recommended / related
Getting there with my gigography now, a list of every gig I've been to, from 1987 up to last year. It's a natural progression from my Best Gigs Ever post. Well that's the theory, but there's A LOT missing. I have chucked in details from the big bag of old gig tickets that I've had since I've been in London, but there's not much from before that - got to get a box of old concert tickets and things from Mum and Dad's loft. Also got a bundle of gaps regarding bands seen at festivals, they'll probably stay missing, it's so hard to remember, and there's a stack missing where I've lost tickets or never had them, most of the guestlist actions during my NME and Popex years and that. SO, if you were at a gig, and so was I, and you can remember anything about it please post details up here to remind me... Yeah I know it's a bit nerdy, let's let that slide though, I'm having fun remembering these things. At least I've not started scanning the tickets in yet. That's coming later...

My first gig was in 1987, from then until 1990 it was mostly rock, either around Portsmouth or on trips up to London. Then in 1991 things got more indie, and in 1994 things really seemed to kick off. In 1996 I moved to London (first Waterloo, then Putney in 1998, Ealing in 1999, New Cross in 2000, and Stoke Newington in 2003) and in 2005 I moved back out again, to Folkestone (so that's where the list slows down again). Click on one of those years to see the gigs from that year, though you're more likely to have arrived at those pages than this by googling for gigography...

LOTS missing, it's surprising how many gigs I remember I can find no mention of online. Lots of Under Neath What, Atom Seed and David Devant (favourite bands of various times) to hopefully be unearthed, and what of the classic Supergrass at South Parade Pier? It's documented nowhere. This could turn into an valuable archive...

See links on individual pages to my Folkestone gig history.

UPDATE: Of course Supergrass at South Parade Pier is on Song Kick now.

Guessing this one must actually be the album launch do with the free cocktails and so on, do I have a pass or a ticket for this somewhere? I scanned one in at some point.
David Devant and his Spirit Wife are AMAZING, and this album launch party was a special time.

I did a few dates of this tour while I was at nme.com. I did some sort of tech support, can't even really remember what right now. I think I was just there to help the journo and photographer upload their copy and images to the website. I have some sound desk recordings of these shows somewhere too!

Belle and Sebastianrated9 / 10.0(1)

Paid 5x over the odds for a ticket, but we had to get in. Got in the aftershow too, there was just us and Jarvis Cocker there. Ooh did I drop another name?

Was definitely very excited about this gig. I had the album and great reports from Hibbett who had been to see them in Glasgow. We (Nic P and I) went along without tickets but high spirits and a pocket full of cash, so we were fine. Think it was originally about a fiver but we paid someone thirty quid or so. We were in, was a polite and sedate affair apart from us. Met our friend Jody in there who upgraded us to after show party tickets. Not many people in the after show / party bit apart from Jody, us, Dickon from Orlando and Jarvis Cocker out of / off of the Pulp.

Definitely one of my best gigs ever, a band I loved at just the right time.
