Fabcoach #Tramlines 2014 Highlights ! Part 2

Sunday dawned, another brilliant sunny day for #Tramlines 2014.

First stop the Folk Forest in Endcliffe Park. It was fantastically rammed full of families, beardies & folksyies ! Can we have a bigger space next year !! Had to buy yummy Lemon & Poppyseed cake for breakfast from Seven Hills bakery stand…coffee from Motorola Coffee ! The band was Nat Jones & friends.. very musical, lovely harmonies & the prefect start to the day.


Onto the bus and off to see Rolo Tomassi at Corp ( Corporation to you ) . V fiesty , 2 screamo singers & as usual for Corp bands at #Tramlines excellent !! Nice new stage backdrop !!

Thence to the Cathedral to see Womans Hour . Sadly the gremlins meant a long wait .

Liked the pyramids on stage but left to go to the Millenium gallery to attempt to see Bloodsport at 7.00. Once again a re scheduling put them on to 9.00 so we scooted to the Leadmill to see Blossomer, and Nick McSweeney filling in for the injured Hey Sholay. 10 out of 10 to Leadmill door staff who made us get a pass out for later !!

Back up the hill to Millennium Gallery to see DJ ..really good    then AT LAST and thankfully well worth it, 3 piece Bloodsport .


Amazing one of the best bits of Tramlines . Described as

tags: aggrobeat diy experimental afro-beat hybrid vigour records life in units post punk soukous Sheffield  I heard Brian Eno, Talking Heads, Swans all in one go… relentless beat … uplifting !!

We would have loved to see the amazing Bo Ningen too !! But nipped back down to the Leadmill, past the queue with our passouts !!

The Leadmill was absolutely jam packed for the last gig of the night Slow Club . Sadly the sound system was slower … the crowd were hot & restless … the brave Slow Club took to the stage for an acoustic version then finally sans monitors they burst into action !! A brilliant end to a jam packed weekend at #Tramlines2014 !!

Slow Club

Can’t wait till next year , will have my weekly bus pass ready for another epic trail of musicality !!
