Recommended Posts

I hear Blur were great last night but the sound was even lower than previous gigs? Couple of mates there last night and they said you could barely hear a thing unless you were right beside the speaker. Atmos very flat as a result.

I've just come back from a 2 week trip to Japan where I went to one of the craziest gigs I have ever been to in my life.

I went to see a band called The King Brothers at quite a small (300-ish) venue. The music was pretty mental, a bit like The Hives, but less structured, louder, more shouty, and in Japanese. However it was the antics of the band that made the gig so immense.

Within 1 minute of them coming on stage, the guitarist had jumped into the crowd and was playing whilst crowd surfing on his back. Later on, he literally stepped into the crowd, where he was carried, standing up, into the middle of the crowd. He was in the middle of some massive rant at this point, and the image of a guy screaming into a microphone whilst hovering towards you over the top of a crowd is pretty surreal.

Then, towards the end of the gig, the entire band (drummer and drum kit included) re-located into the middle of the crowd. The support band then joined in for a 15 minute psychedelic-noise-core-wig-out. The mad crowd surfing guy didn't touch the floor for the last 15 minutes of the gig.

I have to say that the music got a bit much after a while, but the atmosphere was absolutely electric. Having been to so many gigs in the UK where everyone is talking or too busy filming it on their phones, this was like a breath of fresh air.

I managed to find a You Tube video of the last 15 minutes of the gig. The drummer is just behind the the guy singing, but he's too low down to see. You can see the drum kit being sent piece-by-piece back to the stage at the end of the video. Also notice that no-one (apart from the person doing this video) is filming it on their phone. I'm off the left hand side of the video. You can see me hold my can in the air at 12:23 :)

Saw Jack White over the weekend and he was fucking great. My only complaint though is Hotel Yorba now sounds like a hillbilly song with a backing band and just needs a someone blowing into a jug with xxx written on it to complete the effect.
