The Horrors @ Electric Ballroom, Camden. June 5th 2009Before last night I’d never seen The Horrors live. Having become somewhat obsessed with their second album, the thrilling ‘Primary Colours’, I was half excited to hear it in the flesh, half nervous that any illusions of greatness I had would come crashing down in one fell swoop.

Wolf Parade, Electric Ballroom, 1st Dec

Posted in Gigs, Tickets with tags , , , on November 27, 2008 by musicmuleblog

Yes yes yes! It’s almost time for the mighty Wolf Parade to grace our shores once again. I’ve been waiting ages for this one in case you didn’t guess. Dan Boeckner and Spencer Krug found time between side projects (Handsome Furs and Sunset Rubdown respectively) to release a follow up album to 2005’s awesome Apologies To Queen Mary. Their new release At Mount Zoomer didn’t disappoint although definitely didn’t have as many standout tracks as its predecessor.  I wouldn’t miss this for the world.
