Live Gig Videos: Frank Turner performs ‘The Way I Tend to Be’ plus a Foo Fighters cover for Radio1 Rocks

 
By on Thursday, 20th June 2013 at 4:00 pm
 

Last week as part of Radio1 Rocks series, seemingly inexhaustible singer/songwriter Frank Turner appeared in the Radio1 Live Lounge to perform some songs, including his own ‘The Way I Tend to Be’ (featured on his current Xtra Mile Recordings LP ‘Tape Deck Heart’) and a surprise: a cover of Foo Fighters‘ ‘All My Life’. Thanks to the BBC, you can watch both tracks being performed below.

Live Gig Video: Fenech-Soler perform an acoustic version of single ‘Magnetic’ at Rockness 2013

 
By on Wednesday, 19th June 2013 at 4:00 pm
 

Earlier this month, Fenech-Soler found themselves at Inverness’ Rockness Festival recorded this acoustic version of forthcoming single ‘Magnetic’ for Off Guard Gigs. Beautiful. If this doesn’t get you excited about the release of their second album ‘Rituals’ on the 2nd of September, there is clearly something wrong with you. Or maybe you need to hear the single version? Then watch this previous Video of the Moment. Epic.

Grab the Sane Beats’ remix of the single from this previous MP3 of the Day post. The band go on tour in the UK and Ireland in November.

WIN / Tickets to see the Computers in London -OR- Manchester in May

 
By on Thursday, 18th April 2013 at 11:00 am
 

Exeter blues/punk band The Computers will be releasing their second album ‘Love Triangles Hate Squares’ on the 29th of April on One Little Indian, so it makes perfect sense that the group will be touring in support of it in May and June. So what does the tour have to do with TGTF? We’ve managed to blag a pair each to their London 100 Club (Wednesday the 8th of May) and Manchester Deaf Institute (Saturday the 11th of May) shows and we want to give them away to two lucky TGTF readers. You’re asking yourself, how do I win a pair of these tickets? Well, keep on reading…

To be in the running for the pair of tickets of your choice, complete the form below with your full name (seriously folks, I need your real first and last name), your email address and which city you want to win tickets for (London or Manchester). Then answer this question: what is the name of their lead singer? (Hint: Find this out on their last.fm page.) Get your entries in by noon British time on Monday the 22nd of April. We’ll choose a winner from all the correct entries received then. Good luck! Please note: this contest is open to UK residents only, and duplicate entries will be discarded.

If you fancy buying tickets to see the Computers instead, their upcoming UK dates in May are listed below. Support comes from Crowns and the Dead Formats. And to get you in a Computers mood, I’ve embedded the video for title track ‘Love Triangles Hate Squares’ at the bottom of this post.

This contest is now closed and the winners will be contacted soon.
