      PLEASE READ: TAMB is not closing!   10/12/2017

      Just to provide an update on the future of the Tartan Army Message Board. To be clear the board will not be closing and instead will be staying open and will hopefully go from strength to strength. Who Are We? We are a group of Scotland supporters who have varied skills and expertise, along with experience of  being involved in football and running football message boards. When we heard the TAMB faced closure, we contacted the old team with a detailed plan which involved financing and running the board. After speaking to the old team on a number of occasions they have allowed us to put our plan into action. While speaking to them and going on their experience and that of those before them, we have elected to keep our identity private, however rest assured we have the best intentions for the board and those on it. Our Plans. Our plan will involve a number of stages which we hope will not only keep the board going but help improve and rejuvenate it. Our first step will be to do a bit of a clean-up of the board. This will involve some downtime for a few hours where posting will be disabled. We plan to do this early next week, a full notice will be posted on the board then. Once that is completed we will be upgrading the current board platform, both behind the scenes and hopefully aesthetically too. There will be an ongoing process of board improvements which we hope you, the user will help us with, so you have a board you will enjoy We thank the old board team for all their hard work, dedication and their help during this handover and hope you will all help support our plans going forward.

Well , I had hoped to have Sparks/Goldfrapp/Future Islands at 02 but instead spent 30 mins of my life this morning staring at a count down bar to get heehaw. 

So only have The Divine Comedy at the bandstand plus, and this is stretching 'gig' a bit, the philharmonic orchestra  plays Harry potter and the philosophers stone ....

Have you ever seen Maiden Scotland?  I went to see them a couple of weeks ago and despite my initial reservations they were actually really good!!

Been to nothing so far this year, but Gojira and Virginmarys playing same night next month in Glasgow.   Love Gojira, not sure about the latter, but pal says they're great so may give them a punt this time.

Songkick had Bob Dylan supporting Deftones in May, but thankfully they've now been separated to Armadillo and SECC.   Maybe some 2nd hand Deftone tickets going cheaper now I hope :lol:

Went to see Teenage Fanclub last night at Shepherd's Bush Empire.  Excellent as always although they could have done with turning the sound up a bit.  

Between a couple of songs, Norman Blake mentioned that "this is the last night of a wee tour we've been doing. We've played a few gigs in France and Spain but it's great to finish off the tour in the EU!"  This got quite a big cheer but what made my night was someone behind me turning to his mate and saying "Of course, they're Scottish"  which I thought was telling.

Was that 2 years ago!? 

I remember you posting that you'd seen them & I'd got tickets for the following evening.

The sound was awful tbh as it always is at the Academy but I liked the album so went anyway. You'd think that if you're constructing a music venue, one of  the first jobs would be to get the acoustics right?

I remember seeing the Who at the ABC in Hull (many) years ago & the sound was better then.

I'm sure it was 2 years ago, could be wrong though! 

Agree about the academy, although i'm sure TWOD's were at ABC when i saw them!
