Bristol Creams (Day 2)

By Ginger | September 19, 2009

Walking around the cobbled streets of Bristol, twisting alleyways alive with Victorian memory and impregnated with vivid history, one can’t help but feel a sense of pride for the architecture that our strange little country boasts. The excited chatter of visiting tourists pepper every exquisitely ornate gateway and cul de sac. And as I marvel at my own heritage I can’t help but think that Bristol, as picturesque as it plainly is, has a serious challenge in the shape of last night’s Brighton crowd. Will the Bristol massive stand up to Brighton’s awesome welcome?

Well, it has to be said that Bristol were more than up for the challenge. As the uproarious cheer urged us into the album set the very vocal Bristolians showed their wonderful support in in voluminous fashion. And the show was amazing.

The sense of the performance turning into a party by the end of the evening was tangible. By the second set we were neck deep in the celebratory atmosphere of the 02 Academy and feeling no pain. And by the end the dressing room was alive with the boozy pats on backs of the band that continued onto the bus where we enjoyed the first collective listen of our new album.

It was a religious experience.

Today we play Nottingham Rock City, a venue that has traditionally stood up to any audience on the UK rock circuit. It’s going to be a devastatingly awesome show today, but Bristol will not be easy to match.

We got website of the week in The Sun yesterday. Sweet.

Man, this merch is awesome. I’m in love with my football shirt.

    I’m trying to think if there’s a better way of starting the morning than a mug of sweet, strong PG tips in a Chutzpah! mug, while listening to ‘Low Energy Vortex’ ……… nope can’t think of one!!!

    wow what a great night! cheers ooh arr
    To hear the new album was fantastic and all the songs stood up on their own as great tunes really enjoyable, it was just a question of why you couldnt continue playing the “hits” all night!
    Cheers certainly a bigger crowd than Winchester when I saw you last Ginger but an equally as good night as always, was that Guiness or wine you were drinking?

    Fucking awesome show in Brizzle chaps. The new album set was great but i was concerned you were all a bit subdued. You more than made up for it when Nothing Ever Changes threatened to damage those tiny inner ear hairs of mine that are already battered and bruised from 15 years listening to you chaps. Best gig i’ve seen for years.

    Been seeing The Wildhearts live for 14 years and that’s one of the best shows I’ve ever seen you do.

    It truely was an amazing gig. Possibly the best I’ve ever seen the band (and I’ve seen ’em over 20 times).

    My wife and I were literally giddy when the band played One Love, One Life, One Girl; it’s one of the songs we danced to at our wedding, so it was great to see it live.

    We’re now going to Birmingham and London as well, it was that good, plus were bringing some friends who are WH virgins!

    Can’t wait until Birmingham!
