I really liked it when I played there last year. The whole place is pretty warren-y.

No, so, so wrong. It's definitely one of East Anglia's major population centres, shamefully omitted from the thread title.

Re: East Anglia (Norwich, Ipswich, Colchester, Cambridge)

It is, but technically it's not. Isn't it really part of Cambridgeshire? Nevermind though!

EA Representing.

Re: East Anglia (Norwich, Ipswich, Colchester, Cambridge)

it's on look east, that's good enough for me.

Re: East Anglia (Norwich, Ipswich, Colchester, Cambridge)

East Anglia is Suffolk, Norfolk, Cambridgeshire, and some of Essex.

Milton Keynes gets on Look East and that's deffo not in EA.

Re: East Anglia (Norwich, Ipswich, Colchester, Cambridge)

you guys are so elitist. "oh yeah, that place is just not east enough for me". fuck you guys, unless you live in lowestoft you have no place dictating how east a place is.

It was the place to be circa 1999-2001.

Re: East Anglia (Norwich, Ipswich, Colchester, Cambridge)

Just seen this thread.. there's some stuff that happens in Colchester, some interesting things happen at Slack Space on Queen Street.. it's an art gallery in the day and every month they have a mini-fest which over three days can have anything on but often music-related. There's a guy who runs Dead Air Recordings, info at leeashcroft.co.uk who's done some good (unfortunately poorly attended) things there.

There's also the arts centre which has some decent stuff.. saw Melt Banana, Atari Teenage Riot, Converge, Kylesa and Silver Apples there last year. Sometimes they put on odd stuff like Fast Lady, Rank Sinatra, Shitmat, Goodiepal.. www.colchesterartscentre.com

In Ipswich check out the Random Camel Collective - they do all sorts and have a monthly noise night held at various venues round Ipswich.

I've also started doing some stuff at Molly Malones in Colchester under the name Mother Popcorn - got Harry Merry/Rev Simpkins/Gif Mec Hild Nime 5000AD playing January 28th and Cough/Astrohenge/Toe playing April 22nd. More info at http://www.myspace.com/motherpopcorncolchester

So EA's not a total failure!

Re: East Anglia (Norwich, Ipswich, Colchester, Cambridge)

I'm going to be in Ipswich for a couple nights next week. What can I do to stop myself from dying of boredom?

chun is as chun does

Re: East Anglia (Norwich, Ipswich, Colchester, Cambridge)

nothing.

Re: East Anglia (Norwich, Ipswich, Colchester, Cambridge)

Bleak! I might have to resort to the local past-times by murdering some prossies or eating myself to death.

Re: East Anglia (Norwich, Ipswich, Colchester, Cambridge)

I moved away from Norwich a fair few years ago for uni and never went back.  Saw this thread and was pretty excited by the idea that things might be happening there, but no, just people discussing how east it is.  Did Norwich ever really recover from the loss of the Ferryboat..?

Re: East Anglia (Norwich, Ipswich, Colchester, Cambridge)

there's a couple of small scenes here. a hardcore-y one and a pop punk one. they both put on fairly decent shows with different crowds at each. not strictly the kind of gigs i want to go to these days, but there's plenty of heart in the right place DIY music going on lately up the city.
