The Skeletal Family, Bradford

On Thursday night I once again braved my luck and headed down to Bradford. The bus was 20 minutes late and despite printing the Google directions I went out of Bradford bus station by the wrong exit and got lost again!
I eventually found my way to the club Vampire just in time to catch the support band Dawn of Elysium, who I first saw a couple of months ago and as before they played a great set.

A quick turn around on stage and it was time for the main act The Skeletal Family, who are from Keighley the Yorkshire Dales Mill Town who`s most famous residents were The Bronte Sisters. Everyone here will know of Wuthering Heights etc.

That must be something to follow, with tonight been the warm-up for their American tour starting on Sunday and was also a bit of a “See you” gig as we say in Yorkshire.

Although I am not a hard-core fan of The Family I soon could be the set was great and I really recommend going to see them if you get the chance. The classic Gothic line up of 3 guitars, drums and female tick all the boxes for me.


  1. I can't tell you how many times I've walked out of the wrong exit in a train station and ended up wasting an hour trying to find the hotel before asking a local for directions. :P

    Thankfully you got there in time to see a bit of the first act! :o)

    1. There just seems to be a jinx on me when I go to Bradford, even after 35 years, at least I don`t nearly get arrested nowadays (hope)



Got my appointment for a Gastroscopy at LGI Friday 4.00pm Chris is away, so cannot have a general. Can`t eat/drink from 8.00 am. Ha...
