Tuesday evening I was in Newcastle to see The Levellers. It's the first time I've been to anything other than a tiny local gig in ages.
They're currently doing a 25th anniversary tour of the release of the 'Levelling the Land' Lp, which was their second album, and the soundtrack to me as a nineteen year old. They're one of the bands, along with New Model Army that have influenced my musical tastes in a big way.
Jeremy their bass player has had dreads ever since I started following them, and they just get longer. He also doesn't stand still long enough to whip your phone out for a quick photo, so most of the ones I have of him from the gig were blurry...
I had Jon their fiddler stood in front of me most of the time, and he's brilliant!
Brilliant gig! Last time I saw them must have been around 2002, so this was a long overdue reunion

One cool thing Limp Bizkit did was they asked if there were any musicians in the crowd, got one up for every part and then got them to try and play one of their songs. It kind of fell apart after the chorus as they didn't know how to play the rest but it was cool to watch!

littl3birdy: Hey nessdeyali , bumps and loops are part of the process. Combing out the dreads and restarting will just lead to the same result. Check out some of the timelines here and you will see lots of bumps.

sketchymagpie: Hey V. It does occasionally, but the problem is that a lot of people use Tapatalk to access the site on their phones and you can't see this chat box on that, so of the small number of active users here currently, even less of them know this exists ha.
