Pop Goes The Revolution
Last week saw the death of Eastenders as the final credits roled to black and the distinctive Thames River scenery was blown to smitherine in an exciting Nuclear explosion last episode that guaranteed it would never re-appear. The Cliff List claimed another victim.
This week the Cliff List inquisitors returned to their homested in Glasgow for a welcome break only to see the possibility of gigging ruined by the usless locations in which to go. Gigging in Glasgow has traditionally always been a joy (and by gigging we mean going to, or possibly if you're capable of, playing a musical gig; not the obscure form of celtic rowing which is never pleasant in Glasgow as no one wants to be in the clyde).
But traditionaly going to a gig in Glasgow has been a joy, but now so many venues have spawned, most of which are so poorly designed for the sound of live music, that when you get there you find your favourite band have been ruined by the horrifically overpriced drinks, dredful acoustics and moody staff.
Now we can get our revenge on a gig venue, as the Cliff List team gather their building equipment and poise, bulldozers at the ready, to take down a gig venue. Is the SECC with its 7000 seats but with no sound quality worthy of the plunge, is the Barfly with a pint of coke being half the price of a ticket (no exaggeration) worthy of the Cliff List wraith. Have your say and nominate this week's Cliff List nominations here on Subcity, on our MySpace (www.myspace.com/popgoestherevolution) on Bebo (www.bebo.com/popgoestherevolution), find us on Facebook or email us at [email protected]
