Trinity Centre busking band

Recommended Posts

Anyone know what they're called? They play outside the Trinity Centre most Saturday nights.

As far as I know they are usually referred to as "those fucking annoying cunts that the police should move on"

Are those the guys who do Stone Roses and Oasis covers?

Probably why i love them come 3am on a sat night. Though the singer does get ratty when people crowd his "space". I. do enjoy a good sing along of "half the world away" after me keeeebab!

busking with gibsons, amps, mics and a backing group is just not cricket.

Maybe it actually IS Oasis, fallen on hard times.

Maybe the world has seen sense and shunned them for being derivative pish, and the single most influential reason for all lad bands since 1994 being shite. Seriously, the amount of total fuckin ding young bands that I have seen, the blame for most of it can be laid square at excessive Oasis devotion. If I even see a band with 2 Les Pauls, or 335s (Nowadays, not pre-94) I just leave, as I know whats coming. Pub Rock crap with an adenoidal strangulated bad attitood. Fuck that.

Whilr I agree with a lot of what you say (Wonderwall has a LOT to answer for, encouraging simpletons to pick up a guitar who had no business doing so), but I don't think the presence of Les Pauls or 335s can necessarily be an immediate tip off.

What if the guitarists in question were influenced by other Gibson toters ie Slash, Clapton, Zakk Wylde, Page etc etc? Or maybe they just have them because they are damn fine instruments?

The guys are Akraf and John, friends of mine in fact, while some may decry them for there song choices they are generally playing what the druken masses want to hear and have I'm sure brightened up many a drunks night out. If they upset you, move on, left foot, right foot...it's called walking.

They're fucking shit and they just get on my tits. It was annoying enough when it was just one guy playing a Les Paul with a bunch of dancing twats singing along to Paul Weller songs around him, now there's a guitarist, a singer and a drummer, and a bunch of singing dancing twats with tambourines and shit generally making a racket and blocking the pavement. They should get to fuck. There's much better entertainment IN the pubs, people.

I'm gonna go out on a limb here and say your not a fan.... fair enough. I agree with you there most likely is far better entertainment in the pubs. But does it really affect your life that much for them to be out doing what they do? It's not like they are trying to throw an Aberdeen Record in your face everyday.... incidentally has anyone else been tricked into taking one of them while daydream - walking down union street and immediately try to find a bin when you realise what a complete waste of paper it actually is.

I just dont see the big deal with having a problem with it. Its just a bit of fun for the folk who are pissed wanting a few sing along tunes.

just good banter if you ask me....

But it's complete pish. I'm not against people having a good time but when one of the druken idiots backs into you and crushes you toes then almost knocks you into moving traffic then it stops being, "a bit of banter". I wouldn't mind so much if the band were actually any good and if they played some decent songs... and if I didn't almost always get my toes crushed when I try and edge my way round the crowd of court fucking jesters. However, they are pish and a magnet to complete idiots. Awful.

I just hope they have a busking license ;)

Don't think you need one in Aberdeen. It's a local authority matter and I can't find any legislation on the city council website that would require it.
