Deerhoof - Yay
Koko - Boo
With some mates. Coolio.
anyone know if this is soldout or if i can pay on the door?
so I guess you'll be okay.
i may come along
So I just got back from Deerhoof at Koko having left 30 minutes into the set because of how fucking BAD the sound was. It sounded like they were playing in a dustbin. Such a dissapointment because at ATP in December they were incredible.
And £3.70 for a warm can? FUCK RIGHT OFF.
I'm a bit drunk and more than a bit annoyed.
drunk on £3.70 tinnys? yeah the sound wasn't amazing. though i was stood on the top tier so i put it down to that.
I should have stayed there.
I was trying to fill in the gaps in my head and imagine what it would've sounded like through a remotely decent PA. this actually worked for a while, but then i started getting annoyed with the crowd instead. and then i just got really confused because maybe they weren't getting into it because the sound was so fucking abysmal.
poor deerhoof. they deserve so much better.
I assumed it would have been better in 'the pack' than up on the first tier at the side where we were.
I did wonder about the crowd but jumping along to Deerhoof must be hard due to all the time changes and pauses. Also I assumed everyone, like me, was sat there in awe of how they played the songs.
gig i've been to for a while and I found the crowd really really depressing. Deerhoof put on a good show I thought, have seen them better but as you said, the sound wasn't great. BUT THE CROWD??! FUCK! Since when did people lose the ability to be even remotely affected by music? At least nod your fucking head?? Do these people even like music? I remember the days when the cunts who want to just plant themselves statically would stand at the bar and let everyone else dance and enjoy themselevs down the front. The worrying thing was that it seemed quite a young crowd, but WHY THE FUCK DON'T THEY MOVE??!!! Really depressing!! THE YOUTH TODAY!!! Really though, if you were there last night and you were one of the static rude, inhuman cunts you should be ashamed of yourself.
...dunno, but I found the band really captivating. That said I did move my head in time to the music and play drums furiously on my girlfriend's back.
From my vantage the crowd certainly were nodding heads and stuff.
Psapp really annoyed me, though. They seemed exceptionall dull.
10% were moving.
Jeez Psapp were awful, I kept thinking I was at a wedding or a function or something. No one cares where you bought your stupid friggin novelty instruments!!!
I liked Psapp's songs but wished they'd concentrate on them and like you said not the novelties. The drummer and bassist were superb as were the general structures. I bought their album! Though I havent listened to it yet.
Deerhoof were amazzzzzzzzzingggggg.
did anybody want to take the deerhoof drummer home and feed him up? He seemed such a nice sweet guy!
I thought Psapp's music was just fairly boring (my friend pointed out it was all at the same mid-tempo pace) and I wasn't really a fan of her vocals on top. In between songs she did talk some utter rubbish and her constant screaming made my ears hurt.
but I was standing in front of the right hand speaker stack. I could *feel* the drums going right through me. It was a nice feeling.
They come out ok, bearing in mind I took them over someones shoulder with a manual 50mm.
