Oi Polloi at Bannerman's, Edinburgh
Mark Ayling, The Cundeez, Paranoid Visions and Oi Polloi at Bannerman's, Edinburgh, 7th November, 2015. Wow! That was tremendous! I suppose it was inevitable that if I said that's the last punk gig I'm going to for the time-being, it would be excellent! I can honestly say Paranoid Visions are one of the best bands I've ever seen; all the more so in view of the fact that I wasn't familiar with their songs and had only seen the odd video-or-two. They are super-intense and have a brilliant drummer; their performance was non-stop, in-your-face intensity. And just to make yous all jealous, I got a kiss from the lovely and absolutely gorgeous Aoife! Oi Polloi were, as always, excellent too. Perhaps I should implement a new rule: if I go to a gig, I decide it's the last gig I'm ever going to. That way, it's sure to be excellent! See also Flickr album.

Argies at Opium, Edinburgh
Argies, Sad Society and Buzzbomb at Opium, Edinburgh, 10th August, 2014. Good wee gig, apart from the ridiculous heat and humidity. I'm back home now, but I still feel like I've just stepped out of a Turkish bath! See also Flickr album.

Island of Punk 2014 at Cramond Island
Island of Punk 2014, featuring Burt Ward, The Jackhammers, Scumpulse, Merrick, The Obscenities, Battery Humans and the Happy Spastics at Cramond Island. Oi Polloi were also due to play, but the event was cut short due to someone taking ill during the Happy Spastics' set. Of the Island of Punk events I've attended thus far, I enjoyed this one the least, mostly due to the cold and miserable weather. There had been a hurricane the night before, and the crossing of the causeway to Cramond Island was made in a howling gale. There was intermittent rain during the event, with everyone crowding into the concrete bunkers for shelter, and the event finished early, probably to everyone's relief, when someone took ill from taking drugs and a helicopter ambulance had to attend. It was still windy and raining when the time came to leave the island, and I slipped, fell backwards and bashed my elbow whilst waiting by the causeway for the tide to recede. I still have a purple mark on my arm where I bashed it. see also Flickr album.

The Fiend at the Windsor Hotel, Kirkcaldy
The Fiend, The Disturbed, In Evil Hour and Gummidge at the Windsor Hotel, Kirkcaldy, 30th August, 2014. I think their name is rather naff, but In Evil Hour stood head and shoulders above the other three shouty, generic punk bands at this gig. They had tuneful songs, proper singing and were much more interesting to watch. Otherwise, this was a very weird and strange night altogether. It could hardly have been more different from what I'd anticipated. Maybe it's just me, but I haven't felt so unwelcome and unwanted in a long time. I couldn't wait to get to hell out of there. Oh well, I suppose there's nothing else for it but to pick myself up, dust myself down and rejoin the battle. Tomorrow's another day. See also Flickr album.

'Freedom of the City' at The Banshee Labyrinth, Edinburgh
Freedom of the City featuring Andy T, Dapitz, The Sunday Punk Club, Battery Humans, Rodney Relax & N.U.S.S., The System and Oi Polloi at the Banshee Labyrinth, Edinburgh, 6th July, 2014. I had an excellent night at the Freedom of the City gig. Just what I needed after a deeply cruddy week, though I might have preferred not to have paid £4.10-a-pint. I met a guy who remembered me from The Dissidents and gave me a photo of me at the Rose Street Hall gig in Inverness in December 1982. What were the chances of that? I really should go out a bit more often! See also Flickr album.

Grand Collapse at The Banshee Labyrinth, Edinburgh
Grand Collapse, Oi Polloi and T-34 at The Banshee Labyrinth, Edinburgh, 8th July, 2014. Another tremendous gig! Oi Polloi are a pretty hard act to follow, but Grand Collapse were absolutely storming. Their drummer is phenomenal! (And I told him so, and probably gave him a bit of a beamer!) Hurray for going out! Hurray for getting pished! Hurray for gigs! Hurray for impending deafness!

The Damned at The Academy, Glasgow
The Damned at the Carling Academy, Glasgow, 10th December, 2003. I don't know what the problem was at this gig with my Fuji F-601 camera. It usually gave excellent results, but a large proportion of the photos I took at this gig were out of focus or under-exposed, and most of those that did come out weren't very good. Perhaps it just couldn't cope with such a deceptively big venue. See also Flickr album.
