The Love Apple, Bradford.  RIP

The Love Apple, Bradford. RIP

Admittedly the closure of The Love Apple in Bradford isn’t the saddest news I’ve been greated with in the past couple of days. I wish it was, however, and that the shootings in Cumbria hadn’t happened.  However, I’m totally shocked and gutted that The Love Apple had to close, and this is a sad result of what has happened to Bradford in the past few years.  About 5 years ago the place (both Bradford and The Love Apple) was buzzing (quite literally after The Twilight Sad and Frightened Rabbit‘s loud gig there!)  and there was a real vibe around the place.  Now…well, how things have changed.  The Bradford Playhouse is showing promising signs, but if a nice independent bar like The Love Apple can’t make ends meet, well, we’ve got problems.  Other highlights that I’ve seen there include Jeffrey Lewis (at which I was very proud to be part of the support with Wilful Missing), Dufus and The Wave Pictures (a great, yet poorly attended gig, again at which Wilful Missing were lucky enough to be asked to support).  I was also at the Jeremy Warmsley gig at which one Laura Groves made her first appearance, many a moon before blossoming into Blue Roses.  So, thanks must go to Pav and co for giving us The Love Apple, and I wish him and his staff the best of luck for whatever they do next.

Here’s what I played in my show tonight:

Half Man Half Biscuit

Half Man Half Biscuit

Well, in my last blog post I spouted off about the new album by Fuck Buttons, so I won’t go on about that again now.  There are a few wonderful things out at the moment:  Daniel Johnston‘s new album has whetted my appetite for seeing him at the Brudenel in Leeds on 6th November;  the b-side to the new Slow Club single (Trophy Room) is a hidden gem; a new EP by The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart is a welcome surprise; and the new single by Frightened Rabbit bodes well for the third album; and to top it all Half Man Half Biscuit are playing at the Stylus in Leeds tomorrow night!

This is what I played tonight:

Chicken Feed – Lights Out (feat. Hazel Mills)
Neil McSweeney – Half A Mind
The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart – Higher Than The Stars
Gable – I’m OK
Daniel Johnston – Queenie The Doggie
Fuck Buttons – Phantom Limb
Frightened Rabbit – Swim Until You Can’t See Land
