White Air Festival

Doves take to the stage at White Air last night

Reaction from the show by twitter user @danielm72

doves fucking rocked but no space face though

@dovesmusicblog started with Jetstream, played several tracks from Kingdon of Rust. Black % White Town. Finished with There goes the fear

@dovesmusicblogI haven’t seen doves for a while & was blown away,as were the crowd. Jimi made mention of how ‘Up for it’ the crowd was .

@dovesmusicblog the atmosphere was electric, and the band were brilliant. Best band in this country, and have been for a long time!

Cheers! If you want to submit a review/photos etc drop me a line at the usual address. I believe that was doves last outdoor UK festival appearance for the year.

How’s Kingdom Of Rust been holding up for you? I gave it a rest for a few months there. Been listening to tons of Kraftwerk of late (readying for The Catalogue.. yes please Santa!) went back to KOR yesterday.. Brilliant stuff, hasn’t left my CD player. Its early days yet, but the signs are good. I was not the biggest fan of Some Cities back in 05, it wasn’t til around late 2007 that I really got it. So we’ll have to wait and see.

Check out the Kingdom Of Rust poll on the right, which is just a couple votes away from 1000! Surprised The Outsiders isn’t up there with 10.03/Winter Hill. The poll is open til the end of the year.

If you are eagerly awaiting the new Cherry Ghost album like myself, check out this video taken at the recent London Borderline gig. The video features a medley of old & new songs. The first track is called Black Fang, quality stuff eh?

Review Of Brighton Dome Concert

Today’s Independent On Sunday newspaper, carries an alleged live review of Doves’ concert at Brighton’s Dome on April 16th.

Reading the “review”, it’s entirely possible that the author, Simon Price, didn’t attend the show at all. He erroneously refers to ’10:03′ as ‘Terminal 3’ and cites the lyric, “Like a moth to a flame” as being a cliché… A cliché it may be – but it’s a good one – unlike constant comparisons to Elbow (a comparison which Mr. Price egotistically lays claim to originating).
