    Looks like an early start/early finish. Venue states DOORS 6.30pm FINISH 10pm.

    Anybody able to confirm?
    If the venue is an O2 venue and it's a Friday that'll be right. It was the same for the Bar Academy last Friday in London when Alternative TV played. The explanation is that after 10 the venue becomes a club. Yes I know it's naff.
    Just checked - it is the O2 Academy (formerly Oxford Zodiac)
    If ATV's stage times last week are anything to go by the support will be on at 7:30 and Wire should be on at 8:30
    Thanks for that. I'll have to get me skates on then as I'm heading down from Leics after work.

    Will definitely miss Talk Normal. Will I be missing much?
    Depends what you're into. I found them interesting at the London gig - they're a duo - one on gtr, vocal and effects - one on drums, vocal and effects - the drummer appears to be the leader and driving force and the rhythms are often quite unusual. Gtr wise leanig towards Sonic Youth - not surprising seeing as Thurston Moore appears on one of their records and Kim Gordon designed their T-Shirts.
    Might be worth checking the times at the box office before going in. Have to say I've been to Friday gigs there which have had a 10 curfew, but Wild Beasts played until 11 downstairs a couple of weeks ago.

    Noodle Bar afterwards if it is a 10 finish, Mr B?
    That sounds like a very good idea. But sadly I'll have to race back to relieve the babysitter

    of her duties.
    leefact25 : this Alternative TV combo you keep mentioning/namedropping. Any good ??? !!!!
    I think at least three mentions of a band is permissible before "keep" is applied - so - OK - here's the third mention of ATV. Any good - well - depends what you're into I s'pose.
