Well, that was rather lovely. Top night
Yuck were pretty good, not as good as last time I saw them. Climax was brilliant.
Pains were really good, pretty loud. I really liked the 2nd (?) new song they played, it had some prominent synth parts, quite fast paced. Bodes well for the new record.
Stay Alive wasn't as perfect as I was hoping it would be (but they pulled it back towards the end), the final song was really great and appropriate.
Crowd was pretty decent really, however 'Lara' at the bar wasn't. Served about 8 people before me, despite me being there the whole time. Ridiculous.
and the old-man inside of me enjoyed getting out before 10pm. Everything With You sounded particularly epic live.
And I liked the main man's jumper, matched the stripy coloured lights.
support band Yuck were better than Pains last night.
but was disappointed by the shortness of both sets. Just over an hour of music between them.
Yuck's name was very apt. Horrid.
Pains set was too short and pretty front loaded, otherwise good.
Being back home before 11 was a nice feeling though.
at times (like, the whole gig) it was like a wall of noise and the subtleties and melodies really struggled to come out last night. It was also weirdly static down the front.
They were waaaaay better at Indietracks on Sunday.
Have a feeling the next time i see them will be pretty special too.
