Putting on a gig in Newcastle, hopefully TKASG and Cosmos fans fancy it!


RM HUBBERT (Chemikal Underground Records) + Support

After his fantastic show supporting the Scottish giant of being honest, AIDAN MOFFAT & BILL WELLS (Chemikal Records, Arab Strap, L. Pierre etc.) around the United Kingdom and in Newcastle, RM Hubbert is back in Newcastle to make every either very happy, or in floods of tears.

Before his solo endeavour, Hubbert was in cult class lads El Hombre Tradjeado, supporting a massive name of bands such as Sebadoh, Nick Cave, Deerhoof and Mike Watt.

If that's not good enough for you, he's now got a great dog and he's taken himself out to play beautiful acoustic vibes, akin to Fahey, Rose and Basho, supporting even more names such as Godspeed you! Black Emperor, King Creosote and Alasdair Roberts.

Touring to promote his second album, Thirteen, Lost and Found, this will be a one-off event.

Playing the intimate Butterfly Cabinet in Newcastle, This is an acoustical endeavour not to miss.

"The hugely-­‐talented RM Hubbert was a show-­‐stealer.It was impossible not to be impressed by the highly technical classical/flamenco style of guitar."
Daily Record

"Technically dazzling and deeply moving, 'First & Last' is a work of depth, skill and real beauty."
Uncut - 4/5

Special support comes from:


Ex-Idiot Savant and others create naval beauty whilst refusing to use a drum seat. As seen playing with the likes of Hyde & Beast (Futureheads) and they're all proper handsome lads.




Newcastle troubadour who is indeed, another handsome lad. Fantastic structure to some unbelievable gems with a plethora of appearances with people like Jazzfinger (woof!). You need to see this guy before he explodes.


Tickets available at

£7+BF + a bit more if you pay on the door.


Aidan Moffat (Ex-Arab Strap) // Martin Heslop // Claude Werner
Morden Tower, Newcastle- 8pm  £9 adv

Aidan Moffat steps across the border to the city walls of Newcastle to bring you a night of poetry, song and thoughts steeped in the darkest wit and the driest humour. In this one-off show he brings his unique take on the deconstruction of the human condition to the Morden Tower to add his name to the great poets that have performed there in the past.

Whether he's Aidan Moffat, ex-frontman of Arab Strap or L. Pierre, architect of ambient soundscapes, the man from Falkirk seems to excel in whatever musical or literary projects he turns his hand to. He has always been recognised for his remarkable way with a candid (and often lurid) lyric and with the release of his solo albums he has shown just what a gifted and observant writer he is.

Aidan John Moffat has a voice all of his own - the fact that what he says might make you blush makes it all the more insightful...

Support comes from:

Martin Heslop and Claude Werner

Playing as a duo for the first time, this gig will bring together Martin’s dark stories and haunted melodies and Claude’s improvising, harmonising double bass. Influenced by the words and noises from Woody Guthrie to Kurt Weill, bebop to free jazz, they come from different ends of the chromatic scale to meet at the city walls.

General / Embedded Youtube links to threads?
« on: March 04, 2010, 01:24:46 pm »
Dear admins and creators of Haxed, is it possible to set it on this forum, that we can have outube video's embedded into threads themselves, instead of clicking the links? It looks pretty decent and is overall a pretty decent idea, the other forums I visit have it like that and there's no issues with it autoplaying, etc.

Movies, Shows & Books / Swansea Love Story - Seriously, watch this.
« on: February 17, 2010, 05:58:26 pm »
Heartbreaking documentary, VBS have really gone all out with this:

In 2009, Swansea drug agencies reported a 180 percent rise in heroin use, and it’s visible on the city’s streets. Early one morning we meet a young, homeless couple named Amy and Cornelius in a city centre alley. As heroin-addicted alcoholics, they’re smack in the middle of two of South Wales’s most ever-present epidemics.

It's in 6 parts, each about 10 minutes long. Definately worth a watch.


Good Eats / The ultimate, best, super-mega home-made Parmo recipe?
« on: February 10, 2010, 07:44:15 pm »
Okay, I currently live 270 miles away from the mean streets of Middlesbrough and am craving for my heart to stop working.

Since I imagine most of you are a bit pudgy and will know how to do this, what are the ingredients and preparation to make the ultimate home-made parmo?

I would like recipes and methods, please. I'll even be pathetic enough to take a picture of the final food.

Lots of love,


Music / My toes can talk and they're smiling at me.

And they're smiling at me.

"Come down" they say.

Not afraid anymore.



Gave in with the chance to get a HTC HD2 and settled for a HTC Hero. At the moment it's pretty bare so i'm after installing some free apps myself, yet i'm clueless how to do it via PC.

Any instructions on how to go about it would be good. Also, any good sites/links to free apps/3rd party software for the android would be handy too.

Cheers n'thoo.


I'm moving to Bristol soon and realised that I can't fit my 7:1 surround sound system into my room.

Basically, I need some recommendations of some 2:1 (or above) speaker/woofer setups that you could recommend? It'll be used purely for my laptop, but I need something which is really fucking good and can handle bass very well.

Links/reviews/deals would be really appreciated.
