not sure what Deadly is (it was listed on a photo of the setlist) and how the hell did they pull off Blood?
All the songs are up on Youtube. Vocals were more audible than captured on the vids.
soon drowned out though.
The phrase "Sexy Sadie" was repeated a number of times (it wasn't the Beatles tune). Another Can cover maybe? Feel I should know it.
ha, I was wondering if it was a cover of Deadly Doris by Can. It would fit in with the Mother Sky medley
I've only listened through once, hence it being familiar without being definite for me.
Really loved the gig last night. Opening song Soundhead left me feeling not very blown away but then the opening riff of Nail Will Burn kicked in and all was good in the world! Split into two sets, second one started with Collision. I didn't really like that Deadly song at the end but then it just seemed to grow and grow then all of a sudden there was a Stooges-esque monster in the room and the bassline of Mother Sky was throbbing away, absolutely brilliant.
Really surprised it wasn't sold out though. Not sure where Loop stand in the popular reformed bands league.
was "Deadly Doris", also by Can, from the recent Lost Tapes box set. Given that this was only released last year, I guess this
is the closest we'll come to new Loop material.
I'd agree that Soundhead, while it sounded fine seemed a little stiff and tentative, but they relaxed as they went along, and a couple of songs into the first set they really hit their stride. Amazing stuff.
and they will get better too, got the sense they were still feeling their way back in to it. Ears not happy today! Coke sized cans of lager for £3.50 definite lowlight though.
Yeah, i echo the 'first song didn't really blow me away' but then things picked up really quickly. they've forgiven afer 23 years without a gig i suppose.
stuck to the bigger cans of bitter to avoid the small lager cans.
couple of 'heckles' amused me
at one point someone shouted out COLLISON, to which the reply was 'you've already had that one' -
'we're running out of time' says mr loop ' you've got 45 minutes' coems the reply from the crowd (it as only 10:15 at this point)
still early finish means earlier home on a monday night
made me laugh at the gig. They had just played it a couple of songs before the guy shouted out for it!
One vodka for me all night, wanted to be sober for it all, so no worrying over pricey cans of Piston Head lager. Having a food stall in there was quite odd, looked nice but odd seeing Loop with the waft of Italian food in the air.
The stage times weren't as advertised on their Facebook page. Supposedly the first set was 8pm til 9pm, second set 9:40 til 11pm. Cometh the night it was more like 8:30 to 9:10, then 9:30 to 10:30 at a push? Made the 11:08 train out of London to Esses no sweat. Christ, I sound like a right old nerdy timetable man.
and i was really, really impressed. surprising amount of people complaining that it wasn't loud enough, and whilst it wasn't by any stretch of the imagination deafeningly loud, it was just about sufficient. lots of heavy riffing, cant wait to see them at ATP - hoping that the awkwardness between songs, and little kinks will have been ironed out. but overall, what a show.
I wouldn't expect the between song awkwardness to change.
With you on the loudness, I was right towards the back & the sound was great & over loud enough.
