just don't take flash photography.
Or know if they'll be available on the door?
keep an eye on scarlet mist though maybe.
I thought I wasn't going to be able to go to this, and then they were gone when I found out I can! Stupid, stupid.
Was superb, small sweaty venue, really good atmosphere loads of respect/appreciation between band and crowd. Last chance to see them for a year apparently as a new album is to be wriiten, the new as yet untitled song sounded great. My left ear hurts today.
The two Nathan Barleys standing next to me who ruined most of the quiet bits. The new one was good, seemed to get the best reaction of the night. I had to go after that, did they do an encore?
As in they finished, went to the side of the stage and then came back on (difficult to leave the stage), played two more and that was it. I take it you were stood near the cowboy then? yee har. Enjoyed Stebmo too.
Don't mind some appreciative cowboy noises but there were these other morons who looked quite out of place (difficult at an Earth gig) with caps on who just didn't seem to get it. I could see a lot of people getting pissed off with them. Normally I would just move but it was so rammed.
Stebmo were brilliant. Sounded in places like Black Beauty or one of those other really heavy Miles live albums. I love how Steve Moore is bringing that sound into that genre with Earth, Ascend and (from what I've heard about the new record) Sunn o))). In truth I probably enjoyed it more than Earth themselves but only because I wasn't familiar with his work and I like jazz.
The album is very different though, more post-rock meets jazz than 70s fusion. Good but I hope he does another one as a duo that sounds like last night.
So fucking annoying. I don't understand why supposed fans feel the need to holler all the way through the gig... Amazing night though, I've never felt so out of it having not even drunk anything. Miami Morning was beautiful, and the new song was great too - seemed to be taking the recurring motifs of The Bees Made... and torturing them a little. Good stuff.
Is people who clearly don't get it, which I can understand with a band like Earth, and who want the people round them to know it with their chuckling and 'ironic' guitar moves.
I chose to hide my amusement at their wigger Fiddycent caps, shame they couldn't do me the same courtesy. At least the cowboy was enjoying it so I'll let him off.
Did they actually play that? Didn't The Bees... come after Hung From The Moon? That was the only song Dylan didn't introduce. Either way I was pretty blown away having it played 3 feet away...
+I think the new song's already a classic. There's been some decent footage on youtube for a while now for anyone who hasn't heard.
I guess the cowboy must've been behind me since I didn't notice him...?
no, they didnt do an encore. they just decided to play the first song off the last album. It was quite a short set. not the best time i've seen them to be honest. they were still great but a bit sparse on the range of songs they could of played. I guess they are bored of Hex and Hibernaculum...
New song was not too bad.
plus a new one. I hope they focus more on the drone on the next one. I liked the extended psych intro they did to one of the songs (I forget which). I also liked how Steve Moore was able to fill in a little bit more than he does on the record. That man can do no wrong in my eyes. I hope the trombone solo makes it in too, I think Dylan likes to stick to his minimalist credentials on record.
I think it counted as an encore. I just think Dylan couldn't be bothered to do the thing of leaving the stage so they called the others back. At the Brighton show they ended straight after the new song without playing Rise To Glory, since everyone was being musc too civilised & not cheering...
That must have been half the audience.
5 DiS at the croft? should of bombed the place.
I've seen Earth a load of times now in Bristol. Might go elsewhere next time. Ive seen them in most venues up there now!
Lakota, Cooler, Croft, Thekla...
How I laughed as one of the approx. 5 pieces of sound-proofing foam stuff fell down on Adrienne's head as they rocked that crazy bunker. I would like to see them at the Trinity or the church in Redlands where Stars of the Lid played a while back although they're not that church-friendly as an outfit.
i love the croft, its a great venue run by great people. Earth did play a church in Brighton so they are church material...but not for goddies.
Guess i'm just getting old! I'm more used to seeing gigs at the Colston, the Cube or the Arnolfini these days...
old and safe! its ok. I hated being in the thekla with asshole students talking over Trail of Dead the night before.
I love how these DiS profiles freeze you in eternal youth like Dorian Grey. I'm 31 on Tuesday but if you look on here I'm 28. Just how I like it.
I'm looking forward to it.
*disclaimer: I may be a little drunk.
It might improve the experience.
the new songs sound really great.
Stebmo was great too! There was some guy talking about Kurt Cobain's shotgun and how he would have preferred some more energetic music in my ear WHILE THE FIRST SONG WAS BEING PLAYED but then I moved and was back in teh happy place.
May i recomend sitting down next to the speaker and generally monging out? Amazing.
like everyone else says - incredible. not stebmo though - they were horrendous. oh dear.
rocked. i think the borderline is a shitty place to see 'em though. i prefer that stuff lying down.
and dylan and the gang were all smiles and hugs, that was nice to see.
The band looked very happy, the crowd was warm and responsive and they where fucking awesome.
As somone also rightly shouted, it needed more trombone.
I'm listening to codo maestoso right now
I bet you've never even listened to the entirety of one of their tracks.
And to be honest, I don't care. It's your loss.
you don't want to know.
I defy anyone who was there to say otherwise. Categorically proved you cannot call Earth a drone band. So much dynamics, and melody and subtlety. Just enraptured for the whole of their set.
"Hung From The Moon" was absolutely wonderful. The new song sounded lovely, as did Junkyard Priest which I'd never heard before., but Dylan and Steve both told me the vinyl with that on is out of print. I pleaded with them to print some more on CD/Vinyl for next year's tour
