    Sun 12 Oct – Nebula, Gonga, Transpersonals

    Straight back to the Cooler again for Sunday night then. Not a gig originally on my radar but nothing ventured...

    First up, The Transpersonals. For me, these were worth the cost of the ticket alone and I didn't even know they were a Bristol band! Their songs go straight in your ears, hoof any sense of dignity or self-respect into touch, and force you to strut your stuff whether you like it or not - and let's not forget this is on a Sunday evening which is still not on speaking terms with Saturday night's hangover. Pretty strong stuff then... think the upbeat garage of The Len Price 3 mixed with the driving menace of Girls Against Boys. Ok, so there's more going on than that but you get the picture. The ep 'Hello Hello' is worth a punt. It was due out in i-stores today but looking at their site it looks like someone at Universal fumbled the play and it's the 20th now. Labels eh? Can't live with 'em, can't live with 'em...
