Last night was good fun. Not too bad a turnout. Read more “DJ: Guest: 005: Black Sheep – 27-February 2005”
Last night was otherwise Mastodon at Corp. Never before have a band had a more apt website name (mastodonrocks.com). Buoyed on by a packed (and enthusiastic) crowd, they seemed to start sluggishly with the mammoth 14-minute epic that is Hearts Alive, sounding somewhat muddy, but as it came to an end everything just seemed to snap into focus. And by the time I Am Ahab followed it, it indeed felt like the band had come and surfaced from the murky depths.
Attendance was small, but good to see those that did make the effort, thanks for coming down. For what it’s worth I was not entirely keen on it being on a Sunday evening either. Some fascinating rumour/conjecture at the end of the night, ears to the ground on that one. Read more “DJ: Guest: 004: Gloominati – 13-February 2005”
Support act Apocalyptica were something of a surprise – somehow having not managed to hear them before, they were fantastic. Highlight – christ, where do I start? Seek and Destroy was incredible, the intro spiel to Bittersweet was hilarious (lets just say he wasn’t too complimentary about the vocalists on the track – Ville from HIM and Lauri from The Rasmus…), Enter Sandman and Master of Puppets weren’t bad either…
