    killer b Ennui Rollins

    Well, be careful. Last time I saw the metal version there was a fistbitingly awful rap-metal bit. The other time I saw them they were great though, so who knows.

    binka !!!!!!!!!

    Saturday 16th December at the Arena. I know not everyone likes/d Oasis but I'm the right age for a nice but of nostalgia and a good sing along plus I saw him at Glastonbury and the One Love benefit and he was great at both. Might get myself tickets for the Leeds date instead :thumbs:

    Hollis bloody furious

    I have got a last minute ticket for The Sisters of Mercy at the Roundhouse tonight... I've got the DMs out of storage, and am debating the appropriate amount of black/not-black clothing to wear.. :rolleyes: :facepalm:

    I think tradition demands 100%, doesn't it? PERHAPS some purple at most.

    Last time I saw the sisters of mercy - some 15 years ago - Eldritch had bleached blond hair and a basketball vest on.

    Hollis bloody furious

    I bottled out of any of the 'black stuff' as i found it was all covered in cat's hairs... Fortunately the audience was an 'eclectic mix' of hardcore goths and most making a token effort... As for Eldritch, I had to do several double takes, as balding and dressed in a black jacket, he has a remarkable resemblance to a pub bouncer these days..

    The gig itself was impressive, especially his voice! But I always seem to come away from gigs at the Roundhouse slightly disappointed and I think it might be because the sound seems to get muffled in there..

    Sooo SHIT!!!!
    That was a baaaad impulse buy! I love talk talk talk and it was a nice bit of nostalgia to hear 'India' ' sister europe' 'dumb waiter's but they had zero charisma. The butler brothers looked like creepy old men - cross between Lionel Blair, Bill Nighy and Quinten Crisp!!!
    However I enjoyed hating it!!!:D

    Lena Lovich was terrible as well.

    I hate to 'like' that post in a way, but it does make me glad I didn't buy tickets.

    Going to see Jeff Lewis (and maybe Gas) in Manchester.

    Has anyone seen the Gas live show? Any idea what he does?
     
  20. Orang Utan

    Orang Utan Sub-Sub-Librarian

    I saw him perform at the Barbican a few years ago and it was one of the most psychedelic experiences I've had and I was totally sober.
    Mesmerising stuff, the visuals were certainly part of it - I don't know if he'll have the same film but it went perfectly with the music - it was just a camera circling a tree, but with heavy processing going on constantly through it. Going in, I thought I'd be bored, but it really was riveting.

    I think he's done his own visuals for this incarnation, but this is what I saw, the work of Petra Hollenbach:

    Did you say you were going to Container on the 23rd Orang? Haven't been to Golden Cabinet in a while, was thinking of driving over...

    Not now - saving my money and energy for Helena Hauff at Wire on the 6th, which I'm hoping will be a celebration of my return to work.
    Future Daze - Helena Hauff, Mark Turner & Simon Scott

    my mates' review of RA at Green Man - 'I do like his song, but did he really have to play it fifteen times?'

    friedaweed Branded as a fool

    Have to differ with you're mate but then I'm definately a fan. :) Last night's gig was a very broad spectrum of his repetoir. It was mainly his electric stuff but even that is wide ranging in style. Each to their own though ;)
