    Good point, plus it's in September so they'll have spent the summer hammering the festivals and presumably the album will be out by then as well. Exciting times for them.

    I think that's a fair enough price. Bear in mind they will be coming off the back of a festival season and i'd imagine their profile will be pretty high seeing as they are now a signed act. For a touring act you'd happily pay that so why not General Fiasco now?
  19. avatar Joeplaysthedrums
    The ticket price relates to the venue so much as the act. The cost of putting on a show in a venue like this is very high, £13.50 (inclusive of booking fee btw) was the best feasible price the show could be sold for.
  20. avatar Crackity_jones
    I can't imagine there have been many bands playing the Ulster Hall or even Mandela for less than £13.50. Seems good value for a gig of that size.

    it really is amazing how quickly this band have blown up ... great tunes and massive sound for a 3 piece. this gig is going to be great and it's exciting to see a local band sticking their neck out and putting on a show at the ulster hall. if they go one step further and sell it out (which it's looking more and more likely they will) it will be a tremendous achievement for the band themselves and the local music scene as a whole!

    congratulations to the guys!
  29. avatar clivemcl
    In my opinion, it is very clever. With the hype about them left right and centre, the summer festivals, just signed, I think going for the Ulster Hall is very shrewd!

    What I'm saying is, their name is getting thrown around everywhere, and lets be honest, if they turn round and say 'we are big enough to fill Ulster hall', then at this point in time everyone is going to say 'I guess you are then'. We just believe their ambition. And if stage two of the plan goes ahead and the manage to fill the place, then they've all of a sudden manufactured themselves into a 'big band' quite easily.

    And we will all happily contribute to the effectiveness of their incredibly simple plan!

    I was at their all-ages gig in the Nerve Centre, and i must say it felt too teenage for me. And it felt like they knew exactly what they are doing and they'd be happy enough if there success came soley from teenagers...

    I say the Ulster Hall will be at least 80% under 18s...

    Fair play to them, some great tunes...
  30. avatar The Ronster
    Most huge bands success come from teenagers. That's the time in your life when music means the most to you.

    I'm sure there are people on here who think they are exceptions to that, but that's all they are. Teenagers buy (or steal) more music than anyone else.

    I'm sure The Beatles, Nirvana, The Chilis, Rage Against The Machine, yadda yadda yadda and just about every pop act ever are all glad of the existence of teenagers and their disposable income.
  31. avatar clivemcl
    Thats true Ronster, but theres a difference in my mind between teenagers who loved Nirvana, and teenagers who loved McFly.

    I guess at the Nerve Centre it felt more like an all ages McFly gig than an all ages Nirvana gig!

    But like I'll be there no doubt, I'm not slagging. I would be milking it too!

    I love general fiasco and truly am over the moon for the lads. Ive no doubt they'll go the whole way. Im just a bit miffed that they're touring england playing shows for under a tenner and some under a fiver then come home to rip off the hometown crowd at 13.50 a touch!!

    As Joe said on the previous page, it's the cost of the venue that is raising the ticket price. The venue's the band plays in England are relatively small.
  34. avatar Joeplaysthedrums
    Yes, as i said before, the price tag on this relates directly to venue overheads, and represents the lowest ticket price that could be put on this show while making it feasible.

    GF play 150 / 200 capacity venues in England, Ulster Hall is roughly 10 times the size, with significantly higher costs associated.

    Is this a serious question?

    Why? Because it's always great for a music scene when a band rises from it and enjoys some success. It brings people's attention to that particular town/city/area and put's it on the musical map. Also it's great motivation for the bands involved in that particular scene to keep going and keep pushing.

    I thought this would have been obvious.

Criticism is vital and being defensive about even asking questions shows there's a problem somewhere. You should be able to answer with a clear, unambiguous point about why it's a tremendous achievement for the scene. If you can't, then maybe it isn't what you meant at all. Ask more questions, it's a good thing to do.

    Perhaps you mean it's a tremendous achievement for GF, and more power to them. Also a huge win in the long term by engaging such a young audience with live music and using a landmark venue to do it.

    and of course it's an achievement for the local music scene. i have no idea anyone could begin to question that.

    everyone has been upping their game the last few years.

    the bands have been putting themsevles and their music across better - take ASIWYFA as a simple example of a band who can make a gig become an event - or panama kings as an example of a band who's art work makes them stand out that little bit more.

    the media organizations are doing their bit - as an example we've (ATL) felt under pressure to make our radio and TV shows better - the production needed to be a standard that will match the content.

    four years ago general fiasco's equivalent wouldn't have dared booked the ulster hall.

    it's to the entire scene's credit that such a gig is possible and the great thing is that with this and ASIWYFA filling the mandela - an incredible precedent is being set from which many other bands can hopefully reap the benefits from.

    good times!
  53. avatar Chi-Lite
    Meh,

    I was gonna start talking shite about "scenes" and stuff, but it's a silly argument.

    Could there be an anti-scene, do you think, or would it by its nature be another scene, or the same scene.

    Fair play to them....that's some gig like.

    EDIT;
    actually, fuck it, I'm bored so I'll try again.

    If there is a scene, lots of bands are not in it.

    By which I mean, it's class for them that they can do such a clinker gig, but the people who go to that gig wouldn't go to a gig that we put on....it's not our "scene", if you like.

    So when you say it will help the whole scene, do you mean that it will help other bands who are likely to attract the same following as GF? I'm sure it will do, but what about the bands who attract quite a different following? How will it help them?

    There's no reason why it should, like, but you're suggesting that it will, I think.

    Why is it that every time one band does something good there's all this talk about how it will help ALL bands?

    I just don't buy that. the majority of people who go to that gig would not be the kind of people who would go to our gigs.

    So, although it is great for them, it will make no difference to a lot of other bands. Different strokes like.

    Maybe I'm not taking the long view though? I suppose it's good that ATL is upping its game too...is that specifically because one band are doing very well?

    And why is it that when anybody ever says anything like this they're made out to be begrudging bastards?

    I'm made up for them, I think it is great that a wee band from here can do that. I just dispute the claim that it will be of universal benefit to everyone else.....and i don't even see why it should be.

    People like different things.

    i wonder is it just here that we get this, or do they have it in every city in the world? One band does really well, and everybody else demands that they must benefit from it?

    I'm genuinely asking about this, by the way, cause it confuses me. Not trying to start a slabbering match.



    Or do yous mean "those bands are doing things from which we can all learn"?

    Cause i think that's fair enough. But that's not how I read "the scene will benefit from it".
  54. avatar sketchy
    its nothing to do with the bands style. when a local act headlines the ulster hall, it makes people take notice of the countries musical output on general. its 100% beneficial to every band in the country.y
  55. avatar Crackity_jones
    This kind of thing legitimises 'local bands' in the eyes of people who don't go and see local bands. It might make a few people pay more attention to what is going on around them in the expectation that there might be more where General Fiasco (or whoever) came from. Of course, there are.

    Personally speaking, I started going to see local bands after seeing support slots from LaFaro and then Oppenheimer about 3/4 years ago after I came back from uni. That made me go and see them again, exposing me to more local bands and so on and so forth.

    This was also the period when I got involved with AU, which helped, but that's the kind of thing that can happen. People (like I was) with no connection whatsoever to the 'scene' need a way in. General Fiasco playing the Ulster Hall and ASIWYFA playing Mandela can be that way in.
  56. avatar Chi-Lite
    ah, that one.

    I'm just not sure that's always the case. what people? Who exactly suddenly pricks up their ears when a Belfast band headlines the Ulster Hall? Obviously the local music media, but then surely they were taking notice of local bands anyway.

    Do people in London see a belfast band headlining the Ulster Hall and think, "I must check out lots more Belfast bands"?

    And, even if you accept that, isn't there a risk that "the scene" will then be pigeonholed.

    Take Seattle, for example. when Nirvana made it big, it certainly helped other bands of that genre from that city. There was talk in the media of a "seattle sound"

    Did it help any electronic bands from Seattle, do you reckon? Or boybands from Seattle, do you think it helped them? May they not have been hindered by all this talk of a Seattle sound?

    I genuinely don't know, like. it just doesn't really ring true to me. Surely it does have something to do with a bands style. if one band from a particular place does very well, are people really more interested in ALL types of music from that place?

    Seems more likely to me that lazy media use it as an easy way of inventing a descriptive term, which may not be accurate or genuinely reflective.

    Just a thought like

    Although;

    aye, i can understand that right nuff. I suppose that does make sense.

    But then it still comes down to style. i honestly don't think that people who go to a General Fiasco gig are then more likely to go and see a gig of a completely different style. Are they?

    Maybe they are right nuff. I see what you're saying like
  57. avatar Crackity_jones
    Also, and I know this may not apply to your own bands, but a lot of the bands currently doing well (especially ASIWYFA and the Panama Kings, it seems) regularly big up other bands on the scene in interviews and suchlike, and obviously have them as support acts at their biggest gigs.

    Granted, there's maybe a backslapping feel to this that might rankle with people who aren't seeing the benefit of it, but it does help to turn their fans on to other, often smaller, bands in NI.

    Obviously. It's not going to guarantee you a spot on the front of Kerrang, just because you're from Belfast too.

    Generally speaking, which I think is all anyone was doing, it is a good thing. If you want to talk specifically about how it'll affect you, that's a different story. It might not be relevant to you, but then again, not everything is.

    ah right, fair play then.

    it is generally good that bands do well. I just thought people were saying that it was somehow going to benefit every band in the country. actually, someone did say that.

    Still, fair play, it is generally a good thing like, course it is. Fair play til them.

    Still, there is not one scene here, as far as I can see there are loads and loads of different scenes, all doing different things, often with no reference to each other at all.

    Which I also think is a good thing.

    Even though there are many various "scenes" here with various types of bands doing their own thing and creating their own fanbase bands from here signing to major labels does help all bands. Ok this doesnt mean that all bands will feel benefits but the ones who are working their asses off to make themselves visible to the wider music industry will. At the end of the day N.Ireland is not really on the radar as a major industry capital in the same way as London, Scotland are. So everytime a band from N.Ireland signs a major deal like the Answer, GF, Duke Special etc it puts N.Ireland on the map and it may get more A&R people over here to check out what's going on.

    Infectious records are (or certainly were) linked to Warner Music Group, at least thats what is says at the back of the Subways last album. Its probably linked for distribution or something. But they certainly aren't a small label, when they release an album it will get worldwide distribution with a great deal of marketing force behind it.

    firstly, it wasn't "criticism" it was a question. That you see questions as criticism is telling.

    p0d then clarified himself. I agree with everything he said in that post...except that isn't what achievement means. Had he said it was a great boost for the local music scene as a whole I would have been perfectly happy. What his initial post implied was that some how the local scene "as a whole" had achieved something great.

    The scene has not achieved anything here. A band have achieved something, and fair play to them. But to claim that the scene has achieved something seems to me to be trying to claim responsibility for something it had no hand in.

    In the monthly meet ups, the scene has achieved something. In a band being signed and putting on a big gig, the scene has not achieved anything. Achievement does not come without action on the achievers part, therefore the local music scene has not achieved anything.

    This was why I asked for clarification on what p0d meant, he clarified and I then understood that he meant it was a great boost/opportunity for the local scene. I agree with that.

    You on the other hand are just taking shite.

    I don't like their music. To me it's sterile, artless and unmusical. But I'm not their audience. I'm not the one paying them for their gigs. If you don't like them, don't go to see them. If you do, then do. It's not like they're nazis or something, and you have to plan some sort of musical coup. Just look for a band you like and go see them instead.

    Two people have said they're just not into the music - in five pages of encouragement, enthusiasm and praise.
    Any claims that the band have been the victim of a 'Fastfude hate campaign' or other such hysterical shite please reflect.

    If I recieved a great boost or an opportunity in anything I do I would see that as an achievement.

    The local scene is getting a great boost from this and this is a great opportunity for the local scene (using your words) so ... I would say for the local scene that this is an achievement.

    ...

    Next you'll be telling me an acheivement is not an achievement.

    Why the f.uck are you arguing this point? lol

    You can define words any way you want. Just don't be surprised when people ask you for clarification, which was all I wanted. Once you clarified, I saw that you didn't mean what I thought you meant, because you used the wrong words.

    (and your typo makes your statement amusing)

    It Took Me a while to get into General Fiasco, Simply because I didnít give them a proper listen. But since their tour with FWW I havenít stopped listening. Brilliant Hard-Working Band, who are now well on their way to be inked beside Ď..snow patrol, duke special, ash..í etc.

    Hope they fill that place out!!!

    Great bunch o' lads. Fair play to them. I'll be there, in the front row, with my General Fiasco headband on.

    Its a 14+ gig, so it'll definatley be a sell out. They've cracked a market there in England.

    Will yous all just fuck up?
    Half this thread is hate and people melting about the price.
    Why do all local bands with any serious success need torn about? lets try being proud?
    and maybe get wasted?
    its all we ever do...
    Hahahaha. Sorry about that... Carried away[/quote:e46b1e1c50]
    Assuming you mean me (half the thread indeed!), I feel I should point out that I merely said I don't really like them; Joe explained that the reason for the price is the cost of putting on a gig in such a venue, which I hadn't considered; and that I also said "good to see a local band doing well though". I wouldn't call any of that hate or indeed 'melting', nor have I only decided I don't like their music within the last week or so since they were signed.

    General Fiasco have announced that their Ulster Hall headline show on 12th September has been moved to Haloween Night (31 October) to bring the show in line with the release of the bands first single "We Are The Foolish" on Infectious Records.

    A full support lineup has been announced also, featuring an all star cast of new Northern Irish talent. The bill is being opened by Coleraine based 4 piece and BBC ATL favourites The Good Fight. They're followed by 'Jody Has a Hitlist', who will be making their Belfast debut appearance. This is the new, and highly acclaimed project by guys behind the hugely successful Steer Clear. Six Star Hotel will play main support, an act who need no introduction, and can boast a massive local following of their own.

    Tickets for 12th September show remain valid for the rescheduled show, though refunds will be offered from point of purchase if required.

    It's going to be rocking!

    I remember seeing WWF Wrestling in the Ulster Hall when I was ten years old, and thinking it was the greatest thing ever.

    If only I'd known what the future would hold.

    (Although I think it's fair to say that The Undertaker would probably win in a fight, if it came down to that.)

    I cannot believe how good General Fiasco were last night. They really have raised the bar for bands from Northern Ireland. They looked, sounded and generally came across as a professional, sucessful 'big' international act. Was such a proud moment to see the crowd going nuts for we are the foolish.


    I went as a big six star hotel fan last night and still rate them as a good band, but I wasnt overly impressed with them last night. But general fiasco are just in a different league all together.

    We've been lucky enough to have these guys in our band before they became GF and I've seen them from their very first gig to headlining Ulster Hall. I'm very proud of how hard they have worked over the last couple of years and they deserve everything they have achieved. I was blown away by what I saw on Sat and am very confident in saying they will have a long and successful career. Owen is a naturally talented songwriter and singer who can craft a perfect pop song out of 2 chords backed up by Leakys infectious beats and Endas 'stick in your head' riffage. Every now and then 3 people come together and click personally and musically. They are flying the flag for NI music and showing the country that local music is good and maybe they kids going to their gigs are now listening to us or loads of different NI bands. I fucking love these guys and will support them to the end. Ugly little cunts but.
