Bowie's a burned out web nerd? new [re: Adam]

if Belew sends DB an email, he usually has a reply in about 10 minutes......leading him to surmise that David must practically live on the internet.


Now that's depressing.

Oh, and I know the user name he uses to post here at TW. Or one of them.

I'd rather assume that Bowie has a Blackberry which he carries around. That's more like living next to the internet than practically on it.

And I want to believe that a light's shining through somehow

Re: What Bands Have You Seen Lately? new [re: johnnysitar]  

Two days at a festival was rather splendid. Here's the bands worth a comment or two:

Gogol Bordello

Seriously people, if you've got a chance to see a demented bunch of gypsies having fun, do yourself a fucking favour and go! Eugene Hütz has just about the most distinctive stage precense in the world and the band knows everything about putting together an entertaining show. Oh and I highfived the man himself. I sure as hell hope (and expect) that some of the gypsy luck brushed off on me.

New York Dolls

The crowd went wild but Wabbit was yawning. The old men simply can't live up to their reputation, especially since Johnny's dead and buried. Props for David Johanssen though. The guy is as ugly as Iggy.

Flogging Molly

Drunken pogoing is the best form of aerobic workout known to man. The band gave it all (and flinged quite a few cans of Guinness to the thirsty audience), the crowd was insane (lots of diving, bodysurfing and other healthy things like that) and we managed to create a monster of a dustcloud with footstomping. I was few meters away from the stage and there were times when I hardly saw the band through the dust in the air. After the gig my clothes and hair had taken a lovely shade of gray. Dave King ordered us to dance on Oliver Cromwell's and dear fucking God we did. From the moment he cried out "You crazy fucking Finns!" to the last chords of What's Left of the Flag (which ended the show), the crowd didn't stop. I never thought getting kicked in the head (whoever it was, thank you) would make me so bloody happy. Clearly the best gig i've ever seen.

Morrissey

Standard Morrissey euphoria. He started with Panic and brought the show to its end with How Soon Is Now. That's all i'm going to say before I slip into mindless fawning...

stop smiling at me
treat me unpleasantly

I can't explain this, but there is just something about the thought of a bunch of crazy fucking Finns kicking up a dust storm to Irisk punk folk that warms the cockles of my soul.

this year's concert new [re: johnnysitar]  

Electric Eel shock. Try them! Japanese hard rock band, heavy Sabbath influences, lots of guitar juggling, lots of fun.

Edit: Don't get the wrong impression! With "guitar juggling" I don't mean endless solos, but the act of physically throwing the instrument about. Great show.

It's LABRYNTH, idiot!

Re: What Bands Have You Seen Lately? new [re: johnnysitar]  

I saw Gotan project on Saturday night. They we're good but not really excellent. They pretty much did what they do best. Mixing traditional tango with a contemporary twist. they had such a large cross section of fans. Not bad for a band who never gets any airplay. not in the UK anyway.

The only problem I had is that it was only 1hr and a quater. But by the end it felt like it was long enough.

Volume of Sleep new [re: sonofsilence]  

These are a bit old, from when I wasn't posting:

Boris/Sunn 0)))

Fucking tremendous. First of all, the show is at Avalon, which used to be the club Limelight, but which now also apparently is used as a concert venue. As you can maybe see from the picture:



...the place is a converted church, so the inside is very cool looking, high ceiling and what-not.

Boris has just come on when I get there. They are loud. Like, really, really loud. The guitarist, Wata, is a Japanese chick playing wailing guitar in a bad-ass band, which means she's automatically hot. The drummer is out of his mind. The other guy is playing a double-necked bass/guitar hybrid. They play most of Pink and a good bit of Akuma No Uta.

Then there is a break. Then there is Sunn 0))).

If you're not familiar, Sunn 0))) play "drone metal." They're known for the sheer volume of their live performances. And I didn't bring earplugs. So it starts with Stephen O'Malley and Greg Anderson walking out in front of this wall of amps, joined by Boris. What follows is 60 minutes of noise so impossibly loud that my teeth and brain hurt from it; just when you think it's as loud as it could be, all the musicians hold up their arms as one and pause before simultaneously hitting the next chord, which is so loud that it makes you feel like your ears are going to explode. There are no breaks, no songs to speak of, just noise. Loud, loud, loud noise. I wouldn't say it's enjoyable, so to speak, but it's something to experience.

Liars

Also at Avalon, and also fairly loud. They play a good bit of Drum's Not Dead, but even more of They Were Wrong, So We Drowned. The singer, Angus, is a giant, and has a habit of singing with the microphone stuffed halfway into his bearded mouth and the whites of his eyes rolled back, looking a big like a giant demonic Jesus corpse. All in all, the impression that they're probably pretentious jerks sort of discolors the fact that their music is awesome.

Oh yeah, and apparently I *might* be seeing Bowie this week.

Sweetheart, you'll find
mediocre people do exceptional things all the time.
Oh, the ruin will do in your talented mind,
Coulda been a genius if you'd had an axe to grind.

The Shows Must Go On new [re: Marquis]  

DIESEL, Northcote Social Club, May 21
Veteran of the Australian music scene plays a good show for aging audience.

PINK BEECROFT & THE WHITE RUSSIANS, Ding Dong Lounge, June 2
Energetic perfomance from Pinky.

APPETITE FOR DESTRUCTION (GNR TRIBUTE), The Espy, June 3
A blast of 80s nostalgia. Kinda pathetic but still enjoyable.

SPLIT ENZ / EVERMORE, Rod Laver Arena, June 11
Reformed for the first time in many years, NZ's most successful and now legendary band. Cool gig.

HUGH CORNWELL, Northcote Social Club, June 15
Solo acoustic performance from the former lead singer of The Stranglers. A real gem of a gig.

PSYCHEDELIC FURS / RATCAT, The Forum, July 27
More 80s nostalgia here but this time the real deal. Brilliant venue and good show.

DARREN HANLON / YOUTH GROUP, Peninsula Lounge, Aug 8
His first show of the tour so he messes a few lines. Still good though seeing that almost every song is about as wordy as The Bewlay Brothers.

DARREN HANLON, Hifi Bar, August 11
A better performance and includes some new numbers including an acapella where he jumps off stage and walks around the audience.

OUCH MY FACE / ASH WEDNESDAY, Brunswick, Aug 12
Cool bands but I was just a bit tired this night to fully appreciate what I was seeing.

The Enz has no Enz [re: Adam]  

In reply to:

Split Enz



Christ, I'm jealous, Adam!

I'd die to hear Message to My Girl or Stuff and Nonsense live.


Were both Finn's involved? How about Mike Chun? Was there a tribute to Hester?


Please elaborate, Adam, I have not seen a band live (famous or otherwise) in nearly 4 months!
