Biff, Bash, Mosh

Biffy Clyro.  Fuji F11
8th June 2012

A few weeks ago, it was announced that for some insane reason, Biffy Clyro were going to play the Oasis in Swindon.  The sports hall at the Oasis doubles as an event arena but only holds about 3000; Biffy usually play venues holding crowds with another zero on the end!

Luckily the ticketing website crashed on the day the tickets were put on general release, so after a quick trip to the Oasis box-office in town, I scored some tickets.   The rest sold out shortly after.

After a wait outside in a cold queue that would have scared the life out of a brass monkey, a fun time was had by all.

The music was loud, the lights were bright and the crowd were *really* sweaty!

The support band were very good too which is always a bit of a lottery (I have seen some real rubbish over the years!).   The support was Pure Love, a relatively new grouping apparently fronted by Frank Carter, previously of Gallows.   For a bit of added excitement (and the sound guy and securities worst nightmare), he even came and sang next to us in the crowd.

I just need my ears to stop ringing now :)
