    This is one of my pet hates and 3 times this week I've heard the same story.

    Monday morning -
    I went the pub saturday night and saw a fantastic rock duo who played .....
    What were they called?
    I don't know

    Last night my daughter went her first proper rock concert at the Sugarmill, Hanley -
    Did you have a good un?
    Brilliant, there were 3 bands on
    What were they called?
    I dunno

    This morning -
    Did I tell you I went to see Corrosion Of Conformity last week?
    No you didn't
    They were excellent and so were the support band
    What were they called?
    I don't know

    Whats up with people?
    I'm not exaggerating that if I had a £1 for the amount of people who've told me they didn't know the name of a band they really liked I would be a millionaire now.

    Rant over.

    I would suggest those bands dont know how to market themselves properly. Say your name, once at the start, once at the end. Flyers also help.

    I hate it when support band's dont even tell you their name ... they'll say "our ep's out monday" or something like that and you'll most likely never hear them again because you havent a friggin clue who they are!

    Support for CoC was Clutch, not as good as i have seen them, I blame the venue TBH, too much spent on lights instead of decent amps.

    Everytime I go to a gig with successful bands, there are lots of people inside who aren't interested, and lots of people in the line talking crap...

    I think a lot of people who go to some gigs are just there so they can tell people they were there - but if that were the case then they should make some effort to remember the name :confused:
