Memories Of The Barras

The Glasgow Barrowland celebrates 75 years as being one of the finest venues anywhere. Having been to some of the best venues around the world, it still does not get better than the sticky floor at the barras for me. Jimi has his say in the Sun..

Doves bassist JIMI GOODWIN said: “When we first played it I was thrilled because I used to stand outside doing bootleg T-shirts when I was 17.

“I love the fact that it hasn’t been cleaned since 1940.”

As I have mentioned before, the best doves show I ever saw was at the Barras in May 2002. Listen to the show here. Check out the intro to Caught By The River to hear a rather merry Jimi tell the crowd he saw Public Enemy at the Barras and he was the guy you bought tickets from outside! Hilarious.

Happy Birthday Barrowland! Cheers for the memories.

Glasgow Barras 2002

Have had a few requests for the audio from the Glasgow Barrowland show of May 1st 2002. Quite simply the best doves show I have been to. When I first saw doves live late 2000, I wasn’t that impressed to be honest! Saw them again in early 2001 at an NME show. Fast forward May 2002, The Last Broadcast had been released a couple days earlier. You wouldn’t have guessed it from this show, the new songs like Words, There Goes The Fear & Satellites among others sounded like they had been around for ages. A truely amazing show, I was hooked from then on. Took a sickie from work so I could attend the show in Manchester a couple days later!! Great times.

I was hoping to put up some good quality mp3s from the Barrowland gig. Sadly the disc that I had kept in storage, has been damaged. All I have to share from the show is a poor quality mp3 of the Cedar Room that I kept on an old computer. You can get that from here. If you have the full show in good quality mp3, I would love to hear from you.
