So I guess I went into this way more tired than I was expecting, having spent the morning doing my final university exam for the year. Which is a shame as I was really looking forward to this gig.

Ghosts Of Television were first up and just before they went on-stage I had to get the bad news that they will be playing their last gig in February. They're excellent live, deafening and noisy and completely unabashed. Buzzrd (which before this gig I only ever knew as the most played track on my friend Lucy's last.fm) was mind-blowing. See them and fork out the $20 for their LP.

Witch Hats were a good 20 times better than the last time I saw them (At the Metro, supporting the Drones, shit sound, all over the place, etc.). Their much tighter and a hell of a lot more professional; I could bring up the "they could/should be able to break the semi-mainstream" but that’s bullshit these days. Was their EP launch as well, which has been sitting on my desk for a good few months now and was the catalyst for my re-instilled faith in their music. Alas, Ghost of TV had already won the night, so a good half of it was spent wondering if I could make the last train home.

As you could probably guess, I missed The Stabs, which is a crying shame: one of the highlights of this year’s ATP as well as one of the year’s best albums in Dead Wood. Till 2010, then.

You didn't miss anything, the stabs put on a rather flat performance. The bill should've been turned on its head.
