Media Update

Important : I mentioned this on Twitter the other day but can people please not repost the mediafire links to other sites. The reason being is that Sony/RCA keep trawling through blog sites like Blogger and WordPress and report the links. The files then get taken down.

I spend a lot of time uploading media, having to do it all again is a pain and time consuming.  Download and enjoy the goodies but upload them to your own file site if you want use them on your blog or fansite.  Thank you!


I’ve added a huge collection of bootlegs to the site, I’ve had these for a long time and finally got around to uploading them.

Remembering the Strokes Venison show one year later

I’ve been writing about all the Strokes concert experiences I’ve been fortunate to have over at Tumblr.

Today though I decided to post about the Venison show here because can you believe it a whole year has passed since that brillant comeback.

Some of it quotes my previous review.

When word got out that the Strokes were planning a warm up show before their IOW show I had to go, the trouble is it seemed so did the whole of the UK. Thanks to the NME spreading the ‘secret’ info all over the net by the time the tickets for the 500 capacity Dingwalls gig went on sale on the Tuesday night half the internet in the UK crashed. Not joking seriously no matter how many times I and countless others tried the website crashed time and time again, I even think possibly Twitter overloaded as well and Dingwalls and the Strokes were trending all over the place.

I went to bed on the 8th June disappointed and annoyed by the ticket touts, by NME and by life.

A lot can change in 24 hours.

The Strokes on Ellen

The Strokes played Gratisfaction today on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. There has been a lot of debate about whether they should be playing such a show but really look at Fab he was on fire and clearly seemed to be enjoying himself. Julian also had solid vocal performance.

The BBC Big Weekend Gig

The Strokes played a short 40 minute set at the Big Weekend show last night, not that you would know seeing as all the media coverage focussed on Lady Gaga!

Sweetlife Festival

The Strokes played Sweetlife Festival last night and thankfully for those who couldn’t make it the concert was streamed online.  Unlike the Coachella stream I thought the quality was a lot better, nice camera angles and in colour!

Below are videos in case you missed the stream or want to relive it.

Alone Together Fan Club Scans

Way back in 2002 the Strokes had an official fan club called Alone Together. It ran from 2002 to 2005. In Transit the much beloved DVD was part of the club as was various other goodies including the newsletters.

I’ve previously scanned some pages but now all 8 issues are up in the gallery.
