Driving Standards Agency - Warning

Normal service will be resumed shortly. In the meantime Motorider has received this memo from the DSA:

"In order to assist other motorists in identifying potentially dangerous drivers, it's now compulsory for anyone with a lower than average IQ and/or driving ability to display a warning flag. The flag (comprising of a red cross on a white background) will be attached to the top of at least one door of their vehicle.

For drivers of exceptionally low ability, additional flags are required."

Be careful out there!

Music Man

Tonight we will mostly be going to a Kubb gig at the Norwich Waterfront. It's the latest band we've made an effort to see in recent months, starting with The Prodigy back in November (a full review of that night can be read here).

At the end of February we went to see Brighton band The Go! Team at the LCR, purely on the recommendation of an American comic, Questionable Content. Great night (apart from a minor ticket malfunction for a couple of our party) with two excellent support bands. First up were Smoosh, two girls on keyboard and drums who gave a pretty rocking set, made all the more impressive for me when I discovered they were only 12 & 13 years old! Next up were The Grates. Imagine a punkier sounding Kosheen from the 70's and you'd be close. Finally the 'Team' came on. Sounding a bit heavier than the album and with more lead vocals, the whole show was backed up with some bizarre images and film clips projected over the stage. We also had a bit of a shock at the end of the first song when half the band started swapping instruments with each other, something that continued through the set. Fantastic bit of showing off!

A couple of weeks time we'll be travelling over to the Cambridge Junction to catch The Divine Comedy and then in June it's off to Portman Road for the Red Hot Chili Peppers.

I've got nothing else booked for now, missed out on tickets for The Subways and The Kooks but Max will be seeing Robbie for a second time at Milton Keynes in September. Any suggestions for new bands that we should be seeing/keeping an eye out for welcomed.
