The Elf has a keyboard blog at Andertons

A friend of mine who likes to call himself ‘The Elf’ has started blogging about keyboard-related matters at (a good UK music shop and website that I buy from quite a bit). Here’s his first post.

(Doesn’t look like he has his own account there yet, he’s had his first post put up via another poster there — hope they sort out the presentation. The general keyboard blog is here, but it mostly seems to be product release bumpf).

Maze gig report

We had great fun at The Maze last week. We went down really well even with a crowd predominantly there to see some very different bands. Fat Goth were terrific, they had a spellbinding drummer. Dick Venom and the Terrortones put on a raucous show, Dick is a great frontman who literally throws himself into it, he has to be seen to be believed. Dick and Wrex are great characters, no wonder they’re psychobilly legends. Nice also to see Apart from the Noise and Blind Thieves too.

My keyboard kept jumping patches for some reason. Might have been the huge bass and kick drum coming through the floorboards — need to get a more solid stand!

Fri May 3, 2013.
The Maze, 257 Mansfield Road, Nottingham, NG1 3FT.
Tickets on door, £4. Over 18s only.
Doors open at 8pm (but you can drink in the front bar before then).

Maze gig start time

We’ll be on second, around 9pm. (These start times are not set in stone, it depends on how smoothly the set-up goes and whether technical problems arise, but it should be around then, certainly not any earlier).

There’s 5 bands now, including one of the hottest rock bands in the country, and the most notorious live act in town, so it’ll be a great night for a ludicrously small amount of money (£4 on the door). Doors open: 8pm. Date: Friday May 3, 2013. Venue: The Maze, 257 Mansfield Road, Nottingham, NG1 3FT.

Gig at The Maze, May 3, with Fat Goth, and Dick Venom and the Terrortones

We’ll be playing at The Maze in Nottingham on Friday May 3, 2013. Also on the bill are hot Scottish rock band Fat Goth, who are great, and Dick Venom and the Terrortones, well-known locally for their high-energy shows. We’ll probably be on early, with a bit more of a rock-orientated set this time.

Only £4 — tickets on door.
