PostSubject: Another Gaslight addict...   Wed Jul 28, 2010 9:38 pm

Alright guys. I've signed up to a few internet forums before but I've never seen an "Introduce Yourself" section...makes me feel very at home!
I'm from Glasgow in Scotland and I started listening to The Gaslight Anthem just over a year ago. The '59 Sound soon became my favourite album and AS couldn't have been released soon enough for me. I've seen them twice live, once at T in the Park and once at the Academy in Glasgow, and I got to meet Brian outside the gig in Glasgow which pretty much made my year to be honest. Probably the coolest guy I've ever met.
One of my favourite aspects about Gaslight, and Brian in particular, is how they see their music as an advertisement for other music and so openly quote lines from people that have influenced them. I desperately want to listen to and learn about all the music that has influeced Brian and TGA but I'm only 17 and there's just so much that I have no idea where to start (I also don't have unlimited funds). I own plenty of Bruce records and other stuff but it's just frustrating to know that there's so much I'm missing out on. So, hopefully by joining this forum I'll learn more about the band and hopefully get plenty of advice on what music to listen to from those older and wiser than me!

welcome to our little forum...

you sound so panicked that youre only 17! enjoy it while it lasts. if you want some good music suggestions, there's a whole section of mixtapes people have posted, with some pretty good songs, that and checking out all the bands Gaslight has referenced in their music and interviews will definitely get you going.

Welcome!
You will find that this forum is very inviting and familylike. There are plenty of threads that relate to any interest you may have. I too love the education process that occurs when you listen to a TGA record. And don't worry, you have plenty of time to listen to their inspirations! Try doing a music exchange with friends or youtubing stuff. Once again, welcome!!!

Oh, I didn't think there would be any of YOU on here. My choice of team may seem a pity at the moment, but we'll see, we'll see. Tiocfaidh ár lá.

Hmm you could class me as one of THEM. Suppose coming from Norn Iron that's considered the norm! Nice to see more Gaslight fans around my age though, there aren't too many under the age of 20 on here anyway. Hopefully we can all help you in your search for good music, you've made a good start with TGA!
