I have almost caught up on my reviews for this year – which is good as it’s nearly the next! Its not a chore to do these reviews, its just that sometimes I feel like I’m not in the mood to write as well as I could do, so I like to wait until I’m in a writing mood! Unfortunately it means that these gig reviews are really late, as I just didn’t feel like I could do them justice. I might actually post some pictures as well – I know I always say that, but I have some great ones of the March Violets gig that I should really post!

Red Lorry Yellow Lorry and Luxury Stranger at Slimelight, 16th October 2010 )

The March Violets / James Ray’s Gangwar / Faderhead, 13th November 2010 )


Not really a gig, but...Matthew Bourne’s Cinderella, Sadler’s Wells, 28th December 2010 )

So that’s it for the gig reviews. This year hasn’t been too good for gigs – I haven’t been to as many as usual, and most of them were bands that I’d already seen before. Next year is already looking excellent though, I’ve got tickets for the following already:

Murderdolls – 12th February (not seen since 2003!)
Rob Zombie – 16th February (woooooo! never seen before!!)
Blancmange :D :D – 15th March (never thought I’d ever see!! Wooo!!)
Bloodstock – 11th – 14th August (Immortal! Haha! I don’t even really know much of their music, but I’m excited about it anyway!!)
The Mission – 22nd October (never seen before!)

I’m also probably going to:

Nachtmahr / Uberbyte – 5th February
Resistanz festival in Sheffield – Covenant, And One, Uberbyte, Suicide Commando and many more!
Manowar if they announce any other dates other than Birmingham!! (such a random place to play! Why not London! Boo!)
DV8 - July – I actually want to go on holiday to York around this festival as I’ve never been there before and it looks lovely, but just need to persuade others to go so it’s cheaper to book a flat / cottage / house.
Whitby – October

Ooh I’m excited about it all already! :)

my favourite Beatles songs are:

A Day In The Life
Glass Onion
Back In The USSR
Here Comes The Sun

I really love the whole of the Sgt Pepper album - it fits together so well, and its all so singable, haha.

And two which I love the covers of:

Dear Prudence (Siouxsie and the Banshees)
Because (can't remember who its by but its on the soundtrack of American Beauty!)

I think they're the best Pop band ever. They have such a range of songs which appeal to everyone, they're not all "pop", some of them are pretty weird, but thats great that they felt they could change in that kind of way, and still remained popular. Oh, and I love this 70s remix/mix of their songs, haha:

Please note I'm at work so can't check if the sound is any good on that video! :)

I would only lose interest if they changed style to become more "popular". If they continued on the same style, it would be a great thing, as I always like everyone to hear about my favourite bands :) Although I don't like it that the venues they would play would get bigger, there are more positives in the fact that they'll play more, have more merchandise for me to buy!, and have more money to release more songs.

One band which I am a bit annoyed about in this regard is The 69 Eyes. They released two "glam rock" albums before they were famous, then three or four amazing "goth" albums and became more popular, and then as that was becoming less popular, went back to glam. The lead singers voice is amazing on the goth albums, I'm really disappointed that they haven't made more. Although maybe they will!

I don't tend to like bands which are in the mainstream charts nowadays, as I do prefer alternative music, but thats not to say that I wouldn't like a band just because they are "mainstream" - one of my favourite songs at the moment is by Scooter, and they are about as mainstream as you get aren't they? :) Generally I don't like the popular styles at the moment, however in the late 70s / early 80s I think I would have liked almost everything in the charts!
spooky_miss: (Default)
And pre-order their album now! :D

Only comes to about $15!

Click Here!

Oh, and if you really feel you have to listen to them first,

Go here

But they are actually great - we saw them supporting Combichrist, almost the best support band i've ever seen!

(best one ever was maybe paradise lost supporting type o...or maybe Chris Reed Unit, Salvation etc supporting the March Violets...or possibly it will be Anathema and My Dying Bride supporting Paradise Lost...but anyway!)

Listen to them and buy their album, its great.

Support the artists you like or else there will be none of them left! :)

*dances*

I've had a brill weekend!

First the amusingness of the Eurovision on Saturday, then Sunday went to see Panzer AG with Katie in London - ah they were so brilliant! And Andy LaPleuga looks so young! He's great :)

And the after that we went to Club Noir at the Electric Ballroom - ended up staying for 2 hours more than we planned to...and being the only ones on the bus on the way home! :)

and Andy LaPleuga DJed, and played some good stuff...and I've finally found out that the "exterminate annihilate destroy" song that I really like is by Rotersand! They're the next band on my list to see if they play! :)

Might be going to Slimelight next week, to see some bands - I'm undecided about it though!

I had a brilliant weekend this weekend - went to the most goth gig i've ever been to! :D I went to see The March Violets at Leeds Met on saturday night (8th December), it was great, they had great support bands as well.

First there was screaming banshee aircrew, they are what i would call 'modern goth' , and i think other people might call 'darkwave' - though im not sure what that is exactly, haha. they have female and male vocals, a upbeat sorta sound, with violins..and do a song which sounds so much like 'lovecats' by the cure, its called 'crazy cats' and its great, haha! :) the next band was "Salvation", and they were excellent! a sort of rocky goth sound, i recognised a couple of songs, the guy has a great voice. i really have to get one of their cds :) or vinyl of course! hehe! Next on was James Ray - he was weird. the music wasnt that bad, but he was doing a weird kind of dance around the stage and filming the audience on a little hand held video camera for most of it, which was a little strange! the music was sorta gothy music with a beat - it was ok. then there was Chris Reed Unit (I'm not sure if thats one word or not really, haha!). He used to be in Red Lorry Yellow Lorry, and I love them, so i was quite looking forward to seeing him. First thing that i noticed though was that he looked like Kt's mum's boyfriend - that was scary, haha! His music was ok - his voice is good, but it was a little boring to watch - was just him with a guitar and a backing drum track. I would listen to it on cd, but not sure about watching it live.

And then The March Violets. I wasn't sure what to expect really, i've seen a few bands who were from back in the 80s, and some were brilliant (Bauhaus) and some were a bit disappointing (Sisters of Mercy) - but luckily, The March Violets were great! not quite as good as Bauhaus i think, as i didnt know a huge amount of the songs (but thats my own fault really, haha) , but they were great. Great sound, great atmosphere, they had really good interaction with the crowd as well, which was good. and their new song, cut up pretty, was just amazing! aaa! definately my favourite song at hte moment - ooh and there was another new one about a dress (can't remember what that was called) but that was great too! the woman has a great voice! and the man as well - though he really didnt look like what i thought he would look like! most goths are thin and pasty, but he was..not. it was great, haha. Ooh and i got the copies of the lyrics after as well, hehehe! :D

And then after that it said there was going to be an aftershow party - we at first weren't quite sure where this was going to be, but then suddenly turned a corner and there were lots of people dancin g, so we danced to some great goth music for about 1 1/2 hours - then we had to go and get the train back to huddersfield.

So all in all, it was a brilliant night, i havent heard that much goth for ages, so it was brill :) and we were some of the youngest there, haha! and i felt so underdressed compared to everyone else (anyone want to buy me some overly extravagent goth clothes? hehehe! :D )

The next day (after a loooong lie in and some nicely cooked pasta, hehe!) we went to Manchester to see HIM. Now, I've seen HIM loads of times, and each time before i see them i think i might not like it, as i've seen them so much, but they really were quite excellent. Ville is a great performer, and the music they are doing now is just great, though a lot of people don't like it. I think maybe because its more "metal" than their other stuff (though obviously not as metal as proper metal - don't have a go at me about it!) people don't like the change in their sound. one thing i didn't like though - they really should do a black sabbath cover at some point!! as Ville talks about them all the time, and some of their riffs are similar (to me anyway) - i don't know maybe they won't do it because it might scare their fans! who now all seem to be about 15 - annoy as they all scream horribly when Ville comes on stage - but good as it means i can see over all of them, haha! :) they were great on stage, so overall it was a great night. Kill Hannah, the support band, were rubbish though!

Overall, I had a very excellent weekend :D I had written an excessive amount here, so i think i might just stop...but just to add that im quite excited about this week - am seeing Apocalyptica tomorrow (with my mum!), HIM again on thursday (again with my mum :D ) and VNV Nation next saturday as well....woooooo :D

I watched some swedish businessmen play some great songs :D

aah it was brilliant.

and they played call the ships to port! aah it nearly made me cry!

(shush at the back there, i can't help it if i love the song!)

the only thing missing was some kind of katie to scream at when they played the aforementioned song!

at least i resisted the urge to ring either of them this time....though I'm sure you would have been able to hear it better than dimmu borgir, hehe!

(just the green one will get that comment - i didn't ring the pink one at that gig , i don't think she likes them :P )

but look!

what do we have here!

a swedish businessman! :D






and me and a katie....just cos its cool :)

(for rob and whoever else reads this :p ;) hehe :D )

I've had a brilliant week/week and a half...have had a great time with my friends, been to a few great gigs...means i havent had time to write about them...but i'll try a bit here, haha...

7th March - nine inch nails and ladytron at brixton academy - BRILLIANT! :D woo! one of the best gigs i've ever been to, and they started with somewhat damaged, my favourite song, and played most of my other favourites, including "ruiner" and "only" (which they dont usually play, woo! :D hehe!

10th March - Nathans party - was fun! katie played some great songs..andy's were a bit..poppy though :p hehe!

12th March - Combichrist at the electric ballroom. wow. it was just brilliant! not as good as NIN, of course, but still brill! they're even better live than they are on record, which is great! they're a lot heavier and more stompy live, which is great :) and they had some excellent support bands too!

14th March - Katie's birthday, and our party! was brilliant! i was quite stressed out at first...remind me not to organise a party again...haha...but it was great! thank you to everyone who turned up, it was great to see people...sorry about the music :D i thought it was great though, hehehe!

15th March - Slab nine at the venue - this was also great! they're a good band..play some great songs, i love the covers..even though everlong does make me sad, its still great. and 'wishing well' is one of my favourite songs as well :)

16th March - was going to go to synthetic culture, but no one was going, so i went to see the gorgeous heroes, but then they weren't playing, so it was just cool to see friends and listen to some cool music! :) then went to someones house...which was also fun, but i got back waay too late, and slept all the next day, haha

17th March - slept all day, hehe! then went to the dragon garden, with katie, ben, kt, ben, rob, alan and chris. was nice! though confusing with too many katie and bens! hehe!then went to the rock night at the queens head...was great! i got to dj, woo, so i played a few songs that i dont think anyone liked, haha! but they were great!

18th March - my birthday, woo! got some great things...my parents are going to buy me a car..wooooo :D and got some dvds and a nine inch nails tshirt :D also went out for a meal with my parents and grandparents (and katie of course!) which was lovely :)

hmmm....i think i might have to make an 'appreciated' post soon...lots of pictures...hehe :D

This afternoon I have subjected myself to some truely awful music, to try and understand whats so popular about all these bands that everyone seems to like nowadays. I have heard bits and pieces of their songs, and from those combined with reading interviews with them, I have gathered that they're not the best bands in the world, but I thought I'd have a go and try to listen to at least one song by some of the most popular "alternative" bands nowadays, just to see what all the fuss is about. I almost gave up half way though - I couldnt cope with so much mediocrity and same-y-ness, but I got through the list I had given myself (through reading kerrang, music messageboards, etc). My findings are quite interesting really. Most of the bands I listened to are horrible and derivative, and I have come to the conclusion that:

My Chemical Romance, The audition, panic at the disco, taking back sunday, cute is what we aim for, fall out boy, madina lake, paramore, funeral for a friend, atreyu, aiden, 30 seconds to mars, kill hannah, senses fail, mewithoutyou, the academy is, coheed and cambria, hellogoodbye, bayside, biffy clyro, and i am ghost

all sound basically the same. And Alkaline Trio and AFI should be doing some serious sueing here - not only do all those bands basically sound like each other, they all sound like a mixture of alkaline trio and afi. I dont know how people can like things like this - they are all so much the same, there is no originality of music or style, half of the songs could have been by any one of the bands!!

there were also some other bands, which fitted into the 'shouty vocals, trying to be metal' catagory:

the bronx, mastadon, poison the well, blood brothers, thursday, alexisonfire.

and then you have trivium, who are just a total derivative of everything that metallica and slayer have ever done, they dont have any kind of original ideas.

get cape wear cape fly is just whiny and acoustic.

but the prize for the worst band ever must go to from first to last. I can't even begin to describe how terrible they are! their music is all over the place, they cant decide whether they want to shout or whine, or shout in a whiny way, its too fast ,theres not really a tune...just terrible! how do people listen to this rubbish!

there were however a couple of bands which I thought weren't too bad. Tv on the radio was the first, their vocals were excellent, and they were something different from the majority of the bands that i listened it. also 65daysof static sounded really interesting and electronic, but i couldnt find any songs with vocals, so i dont know, they could be bad anyway!

so yeah. quite an illuminating afternoon (i cant say interesting!). At least when I'm critisising them I now have a more fuller understanding of why they are so bad.

Does anyone else have any bands which they think i should listen to? any kind of new, alternative bands. I'm not into modern new music at all, but if anyone has any bands that they think I should listen to, please tell me! :) (whether you think i'd like them or not!)

Well.

Why is it that every other site is so hard to work compared to vampirefreaks? Its very annoying, because I think I can do it, and I know something about HTML, but I don't! Very annoying :)

But anyway. Not sure if anyone reads this, but I'll update it anyway! Life is pretty ok at the moment, apart from the fact that I don't have a job...but hopefully the agency will get back to me about that! The college said they didn't want me anymore, even though they don't have a receptionist yet, which means the admin staff have to do it, and they hate that, I don't know why they didn't just keep me on! But oh well. So at the moment I'm just sleeping a lot..going on the internet a lot...looking for jobs a lot! Though today I found some good ones to apply to, I'll have to do that, and I've just sent off a load of letters to lots of historical places in London and the surrounding area asking about jobs, so hopefully some of them will get back to me soon.
On the friends/going out front, its pretty good, got some great things lined up to do:

Gorgeous Heroes gig on 6th Jan (today actually, haha)
Alien Sex Fiend gig, and then club, on 13th Jan
Synthetic Culture on 19th Jan
Slab Nine gig on 20th Jan

So that should all be fun! I would quite like to go back to Norwich to go to Chains On Velvet again, and see Matt, Fiona etc, but unfortunately it's on the same weekend as Synthetic Culture, so I don't know if I'll be able to fit that in! Sometime soon hopefully. Though they really should come to Synthetic Culture - it's great :)
I wish KT didn't live so far away! It's so cool when she comes to visit us here in Hemel, hehe. Haven't really spoken to Sean much.... Rob is still being nice (both fortunately, and unfortunately, but its mainly good at the moment :) ) Katie is still a good sister :p Nathan is still there to talk to on msn etc, which is cool :) So yeah, I mainly have great friends at the moment! :)

America over Christmas was great. Had a good New Year. I've been really getting more into my family history at the moment, as I've been talking to a guy on the net who is part of my family...the grandson of my great nan's sister! (not sure what that makes him to me though!) He's shown me some great pictures, and had some great information about my great great uncle fred who died in the first world war, so that's been really interesting. And I've sent him pictures and information as well, which he really appreciated! :) What I need to do now is to go to the Family Records Centre, and get some birth and death certificates. That'll be really interesting...its always fun to find out what someone died of! I'd also like to go to some of the churches my ancestors were married/christened in, that would be so cool. Thats if they're still there, most of them are in the East End of London, which as everyone knows got very bombed in the second world war....but I'm still going to go along and see! :)

Really the only part of my life which is a bit rubbish is the job front..and hopefully that'll be sorted soon!
I hope that everyone who reads this is well, and that their lives are going well for them too! :)

wooo! Sisters Of Mercy on saturday were great - so so much better than London! the sound was fantastic, we stood in an amazing place, so we could see perfectly, and i took some great (and some interesting!!) photos :D it was the same setlist, which was cool, as it had lots of good songs in it :D the lights were amazing as well, and of course the smoke! the only thing that ruined it (well, didnt ruin it, just was a little annoying) were the people shouting 'turn it up' throughout the whole gig - in mine and katies direction! though i suppose it was our own fault for standing right in front of the sound desk, hehe! but it was very annoying. it was like they didnt have ears or something, cos it sounded fine, perfectly fine, to me! some people will complain about anything! the make-up of the crowd was interesting too, compared to the london gig. the aaverage age was definately lower, there were more younger people, and everyone was a whole lot more 'goth'! more dressed up and with make up on. lots of people with lovely long hair though, which was cool :D

also, there was an excellent song, dont know what it was called, and im sure they played it in london, so i dunno why i didnt notice it then, but the song which was played after 'suzanne' was amazing! dunno if it was an old or new song, but it was so good! hehe. there were some new songs though - i really hope theres gonna be a new album sometime soon!!! :)

here are some pictures - obviously there was loads of smoke, so they're not too great, but if you look closely you can see a shadow, and thats andrew eldritch :D heheh! he looks a bit fat in most of the pics, haha,but i think he was wearing some kind of american football top, so that might have been why, haha. sorry if the pics are a bit big as well!

No, its not some radical political statement, it's just the lyrics to a fantastic Sisters of Mercy song, which I saw performed LIVE! Last night! :D

I am tempted to just waffle on about how fantastic it was, but it wasn't quite as amazingly fantastic as I thought it would be, for a variety of reasons, but it was still great!

For a start, it was in the Astoria, and I HATE that venue. Even more now than I did before. When we (me, Sean, Simon, Katie, Emma and callum) got there, there wasn't much of a queue, which was good. We got in, no problem, and then the woman found my camera in my bag. I'd had no problem taking a camera in before, I'd taken loads of pictures in there before, but this time they decided to take it off me!!! which I was really quite angry about - it's quite an expensive camera, and I wanted to keep it with me, obviously! I was looking forward to getting some good pictures as well, as others I'd seen of Sisters gigs were really good, due to the smoke and the lights and things, so them taking my camera from me really made me angry. I wish they'd decide what their policy was on things like that, they seem to change it every time I go there! (As also, I was wearing a belt which was taken from me when I went to see megadeth, but they didn't even say anything about it this time!!) Also, people with camera phones were allowed to take photos, they didn't get their phones taken from them, so why wasn't I allowed? Made me really quite angry. But as the evening progressed, I got over it. After all, I have the gig in Norwich to be able to take pictures at!

But anyway. We got in there, decided to stand sort of in the middle. Which was quite good. Had to listen to reggae! (argh...I hate it!) for about an hour, and then the support band came on. they were called the ivories, they were really quite good. 3 girls and a guy, the drummer (girl) did backing vocals, and the main singer sounded like siouxsie sioux, which was really quite cool! they played for about half an hour. then reggae again (argh!) for about 40 minutes, and then sisters of mercy came on!! wooo!

At first all we could see was smoke! and cool lights, but gradually the smoke faded slightly, and we could see them. was a bit of a surprise though - this is really shallow of me, but I thought Andrew Eldritch would look really weird, as he has no hair now, but he looked ok! haha. another big surprise - I was expecting him to be wearing a yellow or orange T-shirt, as that's what I've seen in pictures of other gigs, but no! he was in fact wearing a white jacket! Not sure if it was long or short, there was too much smoke to see, but it was white with a furry bit round the collar, was quite cool. But what was more amazing - when he took it off - he was wearing (*gasp*) a BLACK TSHIRT!!!! Woah! I thought he didn't do that anymore! I was very impressed, hehe!! So after that slight moment of shallowness, haha, I got on with listening to the gig.

At first I was a little disappointed, even though I'd listened to all of their stuff earlier in the day, I didn't really recognise anything, which was a bit annoying. I think maybe they might have done some songs mixed together, like the first verse and chorus, and then go into another song, because I recognised some bits, but not all. But it was ok, I was just enjoying the lights, and the smoke and the fact that Andrew eldritch was right in front of me, hehe! :D then...wow...it was amazing...they started playing 'dominion/mother russia'!! it was just fantastic! Its one of my favourite songs by them, and live it was amazing! Was so cool! Then they started playing a few more I knew, though I totally forgot the words and what they were called half the time! But oh well, it was still great! Then...wow (again!)...this corrosion! Was amazing! With the audience singing along as well! Was so cool! Then 'lucretia my reflection'...that was just amazing! The lights were a little more subdued for this one, and when the chorus came, Andrew was on the side of the stage, bent forward so his face was in the beam of light which was across the stage, and sang 'lucretia, my reflection, dance the ghost with me' when the music goes a bit quieter, was so amazing. He has the most amazingly deep voice, sounds exactly the same as on the vinyl! Haha. Then, can't remember all the songs they played, hehe, but they were all great! The lights were fantastic too, sometimes really bright colours, like pink and purple, and through the smoke they looked amazing! Hopefully it'll be that good at Norwich, so I can get some good pictures! 2 encores - in the first one they did lucretia my reflection, and something else I cant remember. And then they went off again. Then the guitarist and bassist came back on, played for a little bit, obviously building up to a great song...Temple Of Love!!!! I thought they didn't play it anymore (though I might be wrong) so it was great to hear it! It was yet another arrangement of it, was a lot more rocky than the previous two versions, was great! Then they went off, and we went home!! (after a bit of a struggle through the crowd to get my camera!)

It was really good, but I'm glad I'm going to see them in Norwich as well...means I will be able to take some pictures there, and also the sound wasn't too great in the astoria (is it ever??) it was definitely too quiet this time though, quite annoying. And also, there was this man who shouted at me to 'shut up!' when I was talking to Katie during the band...and then later he was talking too! Was a bit of a weird crowd, not one of the best I've been in to be honest. Seemed a very uneven mixture between people who wanted to dance around/get to the front/mosh (yes, there was a mosh pit, I couldn'believe it, hehe!) and those who just wanted to stand and watch the band/talk.

But overall, I'm very glad I saw them! it really was great...his voice is still the same, it's so excellent! Can't wait until Saturday! Apart from the going back to uni thing, that's not good :(

Bauhaus!

This is very late (as I went to see them in February!!) but I just remembered I have some fantastic pictures which I took when I saw Bauhaus at Brixton Academy in February! For most of it I was right down the front, so the pictures which came out were fantastic! I can't believe I was so close! The first three pictures are especially good :) I think the first two were taken during 'Kick in The Eye', and then the ones where he's wearing the red coat were from the first encore. Unfortunately I didnt get any of the black bat like coat he wore during Bela Lugosi's Dead! I think i was too amazed by the song! hehe!!

KMFDM last night were fantastic!! there werent a huge amount of people there, but it was still great! meant there was enough room to dance, hehe! the support bands were ok...panic dhh (or panic drives human herds i think they're called now!) were good, better than when i saw them last time, but the other band was really not suited to the gig! they were ok, but didnt really fit. they had a bit of a jack off jill thing about them, i think that was cos of the womans voice. was a good gig tho. ooh! the chains on velvet tshirts were cool! i didnt have enough money to buy one tho :( hopefully they will be selling them somewhere else, hopefully at the next chains i'll have enough money, hehe! i've decided - a chains on velvet tshirt and the norwich monopoly are going to be the things that i buy to remind me of uni in years to come....i dont really like the stuff with 'university of east anglia' on it, tho i spose i might buy a bookmark or keyring or something! its scary to think that after this year i wont be a student, and will have to go out into the big bad world...argh! :) i have some kind of idea what i want to do, but not totally. oh well :) hopefully i will come out of here with a good degree and find something to do that is fun! :) hopefully it'll give me money as well...im seriously running out of that! :( theres so many good gigs coming up though, including bauhaus! woooo! :D i am so unbelievably excited about that! and its not til february! im going to be unbearable on that day, i'll be so excited! its at brixton, which i didnt use to like, but now, compared to places like the astoria, i think its really nice. its never very squashed either! at nine inch nails last year, me and my sis managed to get from about the middle to the front, throughout the gig, to be right at the front for head like a hole at the end! was amazing :D also next year theres depeche mode and gary numan that i want to see, and HIM and the almighty that i have tickets for!! i really go to too many gigs...oh well! hehe :) its worth all the money i spend, i've seen somereally good bands! :)

hmmm...i definately write too much in these things, and i dont know if anyone even reads it!! :) haha, one thing funny i've just noticed...the girl (and i mean 'girl' - she looks about 14!) on the new chains on velvet flyer has her corset done up wonky! thats really silly, you would have thought someone would have noticed before they took the pic?? oh well, hehe!
