    Hello Sherlock's Dog here reporting on a grand time I had at The Shed in Leicester, proceedings kicked off at 7.30, there was some great stalls inside from such creative souls as Lorna Grace Vibert, Jacklyn Hyde and Biff Raven-hill's Wartime Housewife. At 8ish the wonderful Crimson Clocks stormed the stage and gave us a great performance including songs from their Ingeniously Evil CD, red violins and Celtic war Goddesses at the ready!

    Next to grab the limelight was Bury St Edmunds premier Steampunk band Metropolis, on only their second outing they gave a fantastic set including Desensitised and My where you're pointing that Ray gun Raymond!

    Soon it was time for the brilliant Birthrite, giving us all their old favourites like Goodbye Happiness and Square Dance, Erazamus leapt around like a chap possessed, real 20th Century Boys.

Mike Bower joins Gladstone.
    Finally after a short intermission Gladstone took to the stage with Spook wearing a rather disturbing Scarecrow mask and launched into Night Creatures, they played their songs of the macabre like The Ballad of William Winter and The Curse of Tutankhamun saving The Madness of Tilly Matthews till the end when they were joined on stage by Mr Mike Bower of BB Blackdog. 
They played with two basses for "Tilly Matthews" and on a cracking version of Metallicas For Whom the Bell Tolls, this wrapped up a great night, many thanks to the traders, the performers, Dave the sound guy, Giles Warhurst for the photos, Mike Bower the 6th member of Gladstone and finally the audience without whom............

  1. It was a brilliant evening and hope for there to be many more of them. There so much shit around that it is incumbent on proper music lovers to support these great and talented bands that are coming up.
