[GIG] The Sex Pistols Experience @ The Tunnels

Recommended Posts

Ho Hum

How long is before the section of the population and fans that witnessed the original bands, that now have a tribute act(s), die out or get to old to move and therefore stop attending gigs like this, which in turn causes the demise of tribute acts? Is that possible or will we be bombarded with the next generation of 'rooted in a time' fans?

Entertaining evenings if thought of as a comedy/panto night!

Having a good time on stage, and dressing up, like the Damned have always done, is a hoot.

16 again meet old and new friends and get free beer, you should check us out, we are far better than a lot of the so called original artists bothering the fee paying public in Aberdeen. Ye didnae complain after seeing aka SKA, and 16 again are far more pantomime than them, Mon the panto shennanigans, it's got to be better than a this namby pamby miserablist emo pish, be punk as fuck - REVOLT NOW - HAVE FUN

Indeed, I suspect there are hoards of Blink 182 and McFly tribute bands rehearsing at this very moment

The circle of shit

Like the Circle of Life out of Lion King but more realistic

Right then, gloves off ;)

Yes I admit it to being in the same room as AKA SKA one, not much else to do, evening several months ago, and despite myself acknowledging they weren't half bad... That said I wouldn't 'ever' choose to knowingly attend gigs of this nature. I know it's fun, I appreciate and understand 'why' there is a market for it and that's my whole point, 'there is a market for it!'

And for the record I don't hold local tribute nights, the likes of which are coming up this weekend, as the same thing at all. More often than not these consist of performances based on re-interpretation of an artists original material. An entirley different and ever so slightly more 'creative' affair!

No I'm not a snob, I just like my music to have a smattering of creative input no matter how good or bad and nowt wrong with showing your influences (unless it's shite of course)

This is all said from a happy place by the way. Each to their own and all that... Just wish there was less of the 'creativity sapping, cultural draining pap' that's being passed off as worthy entertainment.

There! :)

i have to agree that being a cover band is the safe/boring option- lots of money, easy to do - lets face it its getting harder and harder to come up with something absolutely fresh these days. I think its fine to have gigs like this, it doesnt aid new music and the evolution of it but there is definatley a market for it- for me it is more of a frustration at not having the original members or supporting rich hypocritical bastards.

However, this gig is purely just a thrash for folk who used to really like the music to come and go wild, I totally love to see the average 30-40's office worker get all punked up and jump around as if there 17. If theres lots of energy and soul in music its a good thing. I like these kind of gigs because at least it has a certain kind of mutual respect- new bands on the aberdeen music scene for instance dont recieve as much support or it is basically half assed.

I think it would be better if less cover bands did get to play, but I think its more the aberdeen music scene's fault that causes so many cover bands to come and play. It's better than putting on a crap band that bring hundreds of people but sound terrible wouldn't you say?

And you get to see Biz playing drums!

you spik shite

He he he, you need plenty creative input to work out the drums to these wee beauties - it certainly takes more skill than thinking up completely new drum patterns.

If I had the chance to make money playing in a decent band I'd grab it, but for now I'll have a great time -although usually at a significant financial loss - due to travelling expenses, rehearsals, shit promoters etc.

Pick an hours set out of these if you think you are good enough, I'll gladly take the night off and sit making sarcastic remarks whilst you sweat your nads aff.

Not one single second of creative thought needed to learn someone elses existing drum part. Don't make the age old error of mistaking ability for creativity. Again, strokes for folks. I'm not knocking anyones choice to do this by the way. I just can't abide it. May be an ingrained psychological glich being that my parents played three to four nights a week in a pub band when I was wee. It also may not be that, and it's my opinion that it's shite. Either way, who gives a fuck other than Biz... :)

Old punk rockers never die.

They just get broadband and learn 30 year old drum tracks parrot fashion.

Punk rock 77 = pub rock 2006.

PUNK AS FUCK, EH?

got nothing positive to say? then just say nothing

French Disco and Two Joes comments are typical examples of why Aberdeen music gets a bad reputation. It seems ye widnae ken a decent nicht oot if it jumped up and bit ye richt on the erse - mind you ye wid probably like that sort o thing as it would gae ye something else to moan aboot. I expect mair fae Two Joe, those narrow minded comments really make him look like an arsehole - which he isnae in real life, but sadly like so many others he has got sucked into a downward spiral of making negativity his hobby on here , cheer up, go and see SPE, they really are a good laugh and it's got to be better than typing shite like this. I am now going to see Johnny Skyscraper - another local bunch of punks daeing decent covers -I canna wait, it will be exciting and punk as fuck .

Oh

and for the record, I love all the music that you mention and play. My formative musical teen years were spent listening to it and consequently, I believe, it has had a very positive effect on my musical taste and what I want from music. Therefore I dislike tribute bands!

Let's face it they are probably better live than the Sex Pistols were. Including the Stars In Their Eyes karaoke reformed version.
