Gareth Liddiard

His solo tour kicks off in Brisbane with Ben Salter in support.

Ben's set is occasionally subject to crowd chatter. I'm really considering getting a STFU I'M LISTENING t shirt. Ben is also joined for a couple of songs by his Gin Clubmate Connor MacDonald. I had to leave before the set finished and left the tape run as I went outside rather than cut it off.

Gareth Liddiard {The Drones} as he is continually referred to in the press for this tour was great. Only one new song tonight but with his back catalogue no one complained. Even the crowd shut up. There was a great interview recently with Gareth in The Vine. Can't wait for the new releases from both Gareth and The Drones.

And I'm old enough to know who Blondin was but I wisely kept my mouth shut.

You didn't happen to catch Turnpike at The Step Inn last night, did you?

I did. The whole gig was also being recorded and filmed by someone and i should get a copy eventually. As a backup I also recorded the show though I had to leave during Abdujaborov's set. I'll post what I have soon.

Thanks! I was there, and looked around for you, but I have no idea what you look like! ; )

Thanks for the Gareth!

He played the same stuff last night in Sydney and I was hoping on the way home that you had recorded this show! Always feel akward listening to shows I have been to so I am kind of glad you live in another city, haha.

Unfortunately (for me) we had Jed Kurzel (again) instead of Ben Salter, so looking forward to hearing that set too.

Hello and thank you for recording and having this available to download. I haven't seen your blog before but what a great introduction. Gareth Liddiard is amazing and this gig he's on fire. I got it the other day but only just now got back to you and to leave a comment here. Keep up the good work and I'll have to now check out your older posts. Thanks again.
