i want to know because they're playing artrocker tonight and i know nothing about them. are they worth going to see?
CRYSTAL CASTLES supporting.
They are brilliant intense teutonic artcore unlike anything else ever.
and i'm going to see the new almodovar film tomorrow.
What's the film called? I like Almodovar.
with the lovely penelope cruz.
how much is tomorrow's gig?
Dandi Wind are playing too, And Ricky Haley DJs (Liars CLub).
GAYS and TRANSVESTITES?
Probable yes to both.
there i thought you were talking about the band and was mighty confused. how silly.
see them when I was in Prague last year but wasn't too impressed but since then I've been listening to them a fair bit and they're fantastic!
..and wrote this about them.
Les Georges Leningrad were next on the bill. They make the sort of music which I don't really listen to - electro-punky-stuff.... but what a great show! The lead singer looks like a bad drag queen, which I guess is quite insulting as she was a woman! The drummer looked like a cross between Freddie Mercury and Holly Johnson, he flexed his muscles, posed, and did some gratuitous ass wiggling for the ladies in the front row, and the keyboard/guitar guy was a cross between Super Mario and a 70s porn star. He also produced the longest ever string of spit known to man, from my viewpoint it looked to be at least 4 foot long!......okay, maybe I lied a little, but it was huge. Uhhh back to the show, I understood "Super Dooper" and Charlotte made out "Black Eskimo", they were the only words we picked out. If we include the talk between songs (which there was quite a lot), there was also a muttered "We are from Canada". They were a fun band though, and I'm glad that I got to see them.
so in summary, they are a fun live act, and if you want to be entertained - then I'm sure you will be!
I want to go but am taking part in beer drinking research till 10:30 - easiest money ever!
weds the 12th, 1pm
les georges leningrad and tone float
in the basement of 182 brick lane
bah, i can't make the afternoon gig either!
paid 30 quid to talk about beer and beer adverts for an hour.
It's for Budweiser though. Yuck.
if only i drunk beer.
a couple of times so my memory is fuzzy.
i don't know, sorry!
hopefully I'll make it, with fresh budweiser-induced earnings! Hurrah.
they love bass and cowbells
they're possibly insane
they wear KERAZY costumes
i love them and you of course respect my taste in music
you love them? that means i will probably hate them. :D
I'm coming tonight, by the way.
