Utter pish, why did I go???
Also, Volcano! were excellent, really impressed me.
I don't doubt their integrity or musicianship for one second, but not my cup of tea.
E.L.& Palmer are mercilessly ripped to shreds for playing this kind of music.
Headline act: caterwauling over a drummer.
volcano! were a good band. although i didn't get to the end of their set and find myself with a desire to hear any of their recorded work.
i liked wildbirds and peacedrums. great singer. again, don't really want to hear the disc, but thought the live show was decent. the bits when she was singing without the microphone were powerful.
She has a great voice and the new songs sounded really interesting... Certainly wouldn't call it shrieking/caterwauling.
i want to use it as freely in my day to day vocabulary as you do. but ultimately, i disagree with you.
to my ears at least. Third time I've seen them, by far the most powerful. Really thought this was a great show.
Volcano I'm in two minds about. Struck me as a kind of more muso-prog version of Trans Am but some of it was really good. Absolute massacre of Otis Redding's 'I've Been Loving You Too Long' though.
