I just told Mike Diver. He'll print the answers below v
Parts and Labour
815pm - 8.45pm
8.45pm - 9.15pm
915pm - 10.45pm
go on late because they always take decades to set up their equipment. Those little scamps.
'fucking hell' is all i can say about it.
thank you, sir.
were ace at bardens a couple of days ago, very worth going early for :)
I missed the first half of p&l :(
it sounds bbbbvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm
What is it about that place that makes people indifferent to whatever they're watching? The crowd at Scala were 50 times better
Still a good gig, though
the only exception was when I saw Low.
I think the only GREAT gig I've seen at Koko was Broken Social Scene a couple of years back (last year?)
London crowds in gerneral?
Good gig. Battles are always pretty much a joy to watch and dance to, though I still think they're a band who work better in a smaller venue. Parts & Labor were pretty ace too.
i enjoyed battles - think that was the best time I've seen them
...was epic as always. Great gig. Parts and Labor were a nice suprise as well
where i was stood, most people around me were dancing. really good atmosphere.
parts & labor's sound suffered a lot... i really looked forward to them but as a result didn't enjoy them much, though there were sections where i thought 'cor, their drummer's a bit good, isn't he?'. i want to see them somewhere else smaller.
he's really tiny and geeky though, but he pounds that kit. I thought he was fantastic, especially on 'death' 'long way down' and 'fractured skies'
at how little people seemed to respond to the music.
Didn't stop me from having a great time and a nice spasm/jiggle dance to go with it!
I think i saw you Dove, standing by the bar afterwards? I thought you were a proper slebrity or in a band or something because i recognised you but couldn't work out why, then later i realised it was probably you and i recognised you from various DiS pictures etc i've seen over the years. so yeah - hi!
and what was with the seemingly zero rection to them playing B+Z (i think thats what its called?), which was a sped of version of an already inmpossibly fast song (on the drums at least!)
John Stanier - wow. he didn't seem to want any applause or anything though, sneaking off early during the encore like he did!
were dancing around where I was standing.
Thing is, Battles are actually quite a nerdy band with some nerdy fans and lots of nerds prefer to sit back and take it all in rather than dancing around. There's no right or wrong reaction to music...
B+T(?) was absolutely storming, and Stanier clearly isn't human.
The second best time I've seen them.
*Claims nerd credentials!*
but then realised that he was actually just under / behind the drum kit and I could only just see him over people's heads. From four rows back gah. Totally agree that he is some sort of animal machine hybrid though.
Also, if you were a bunch of people down the front on the (not stage) left chatting before how americans hate DiS and english people hate pitchfork or some such then hello, I was standing next to you.
i was slightly to the left about 8 rows back.
There were these two massive 30-ish guys who pushed in next to me with these two girls who looked about 16. at first i thought they were security trying to get to someone, but then they stayed with these girls. it was a really weird dynamic - like these guys were kind of dancing and showing off to these probably-not-legal girls and they seemed to be loving it. i thought about asking them if they were the girls dads, but thought better of it when i realised that altough i would find it funny, they would almost certainly kick the shit out of me.
That would've been me. Wearing a black t-shirt? You should've came over and said hello. Or not, in case it would've been lame and awkward. Next time?
plus you were with a ladyfriend: stranger comes up to you claiming to be someone you know 'from t'internet' - not too cool?
Stay away from me you freak
and / or I remember what you look like then I certainly shall.
Kicking it at the decidedly less credible Maximo gig tonight. It's like Warp week in the part_of household.
I was wearing a particularly fetching red/blue/yellow (I think) checked shirt.
i missed parts&labor as, well, did they not go on stage at the time i was told? i can't remember.
anyway, Battles were so good, i didn't think the sound was bad at all. and i was too busy enjoying watching them to notice other people around me.
but from where i was stood i could see the whole crowd below me, and people seemed to be bouncing and enjoying it...
Ian seemed to be having a bit of a hard time of it at the beginning. It might have even hampered his dancing. Perhaps more mild frustration on the band's part rather than annoyance maybe? On the sound side, I did think on the whole the drums were a bit low but that might've just been where I was standing.
but sarah ellen fox being drunk ruined it for me. STOP IT, SARAH ELLEN FOX.
but yeah, it was fucking brilliant.
They were class. And John Stanier took sweating to a brand new place - namely, his very very wet arse by the end. Unless he's incontintent, mind - he must be getting on a bit...
