will be worth the £12, i wish i wasn't working.
...punch Loz from S+S in the cock and tell him to come to my wedding on Friday.
I'm still excited about seeing them.
by a trip to cheshunt?!
i really need to see shit & shine again.
are worth the money, they outshone acid mothers temple at white heat the other week. go for it.
This. S + S dead good.
Faust can be very up and down. Extremely good last year.
at the last minute but my friend went and said Faust were indeed shockingly bad. S&S = ace as ever though.
Faust were fantastic
gigs I've been to in ages. I'd never heard S&S until last night, but they were astonishingly good. Most of their set-up was on the floor, including the 3 drum kits. Completely hypnotising they were. One of the members was up on the stage playing a clarinet and screaming into the mic, but it was so odd, most of the time you could barely make out what he was shouting about. I thought I could hear bits, but I didnt know if I was imagining it or not. Quite a cool feeling actually.
Faust were great too. The drummer had these big sheets of metal which he attacked with a circular saw. Their improvisory bits were awesome, all held together by the heavy bass, so it had a real danceable feel. Weird exchanges between the main guy and the girl (sorry names escape me), esp during one song that I imagine was based around a lover's conflict, except they made it quite realistic with him pulling her mic away and being all like "what the fuck". I think they confused a lot of people in general that night. And that was before they got off stage, started painting on canvas, attacking it with a chainsaw and waving said chainsaw into the faces of bystanders.
Yeah it was pretty good (!!)
I would be there like a shot. £12 isn't that much for some krautrock superheros and S&S, who were brilliant at ATP.
