Not sure how many of you went to The Bug/Flying Lotus/K9+SA at Brixton Mass' Third Base. Bass blew during The Bug's set and the event was just a general shambles with what seems a few heavy hands from the bouncers. Martin seemed genuinely upset.
Either way, just found this post from Ninja Tune here: http://www.last.fm/event/646474
"The Bug would like to apologise for events that took place at the "London Zoo" album launch. Fault lies at the management and security at Third Base. We had assurances over what equipment that would be available to us, but the management had failed to realise a previous night had blown the bass speakers and the club night upstairs at Mass were using the monitors we had been promised. It appears 3rd Base totally underestimated how popular this night we would be, we stopped selling tickets at the 200 mark but the walk up was such on the night they were not prepared. After trying all ways of sorting the sound, The Bug said to the venue that he wanted to either pull the show or for the venue to get in the right soundsystem, they flatly refused so we had no choice but to proceed. They overdrived an underpowered system and this resulted in frequency loss and ultimately amps blowing. No blame can be put on the soundmen at the show itself. Their assistance was admirable."
"And as for the total rudeness and disorganisation of the door staff we can only apologise, we could not have predicated that on the night, they even threatened ninja staff too. We will be looking into doing a special Bug show in the near future. Apologies once again. Any questions/comments please email firstname.lastname@example.org"
