Anyone in? I'm unbelievably excited.
been umming and arring due to price and other possible commitments, but I think it's too big to miss
I hadn't got a ticket and the other half made plans so I can't really complain. Did anyone see their press release? Absolutely hilarious:
'Old Man Gloom is a supergroup (containing members of Converge, ISIS, Cave In, Zozobra, Doomriders, Mamiffer, etc.), but instead of making shitty records like other "supergroups", Old Man Gloom actually makes great ones.
"NO" is an undeniably great title for an album, and also serves as an ironclad manifesto in opposition to the moral and aesthetic decay of our global society.
"NO" is Old Man Gloom's fifth album, their first in eight years. They weren't on hiatus, just busy writing the greatest album in music history. That makes them the proud progenitors of the five greatest albums of all time, "NO" being number one. "NO" is like "one", only spelled backwards and without the "E".
Old Man Gloom are playing their first ever European shows in 2014, just in time for the collapse of the global economy.
The acronym for Old Man Gloom is "OMG". "OMG" has become a household phrase since its introduction in to the popular lexicon in 1999, directly coinciding with the formation of Old Man Gloom the year prior. The group has never been properly credited for this massively important contribution to global culture.
"NO" was made using acoustic and electric instruments including but not limited to: sheet metal, toilets, human voices, guitars, drums, tambourines, shoes, hands, various other percussive tools, analog and digital electronic devices, and brains.'
Bossk and Circle are on the bill too which should be ace.
was just a DiS artist tag for Cronin threads.
I doubt I'll be able to resist the urge to yell BRING IT ON MOTHERFUCKER during this:
bit crap. Seminar III would take up half of that (and be very welcome)
Circle were all sorts of ludicrous fun and OMG were as intense as hell itself. Great gig.
but yeah it was amazing
but I was totally chuffed with how great they were. They seemed really in to it, which makes a huge difference. My hearing was absolutely fucked when I got home.
Circle was one of the most entertainingly strange things I've ever seen. Full on Spinal Tap jazz odyssey at times. "On the bass, Derek Smalls. He wrote this."
Big fan of a carefully constructed guitars aloft group pose.
Bossk turned in a solid peformance and Circle were endearingly deranged although the treble was making my ears bleed, fixed after I put in some ear plugs though.
Old Man Gloom were absolutely immense and legitimately one of the best bands I've seen this year. Plus I got to touch Turner's guitar during the last song.
but being a short I always stand on the little walkway balcony next to the mixing desk. Great sightlines but I wish I'd been in the mix down there.
Really enjoyed Bossk. Great line up choices.
