Front Line Assembly @ O2 Academy Islington, London show review

Front Line Assembly @ O2 Academy Islington, London show review

  London was one of the cities on the Front Line Assembly European tour. This 24 August I had the opportunity to see FLA for the fourth time and, based on my previous experience, I expected a brilliant show. I came a bit early, listened a bit to the sound check and I was lucky to stumble upon Bill and his long time friend Gary Levermore who both found a few moments to talk to…

The Kills live show at Tvornica Kulture, Zagreb, Croatia, 19 August 2017 – review

  This summer I was in Zagreb just at the right time. On the last day of my holidays The Kills played at the venue Tvornica kulture in the Croatian capital. I had the opportunity to see Alison Mosshart and Jamie Hince on stage, and it was my first live encounter with the band. I arrived just a few minutes after Lovely Quinces opened the evening. Although I didn’t enter the main hall to see…

Amphi festival, Koln, Germany, 22/23 July 2017 – review

  The 13th edition of one of the finest festivals in Europe, Amphi Festival, took place on the 22nd and 23rd July this year. The organizer provided one more unforgettable Amphi experience, this time with several upgrades and improvements. The ship (Orbit stage) was unfortunately located on the other side of the river Rhine due to the low water level. Despite the fact you could have used the shuttle bus, it was not easy to…

Review concert Gary Numan: Pioneer Of British Electronic Music at Exhibition Centre Liverpool 27-07-2017

Review concert Gary Numan: Pioneer Of British Electronic Music at Exhibition Centre Liverpool 27-07-2017

    If you ask me, I would guess that tonight, when Gary Numan was presenting his new songs for the very first time, he was just as eager to perform them as the fans were wanting to hear them. The first time is always special, isn’t it? The pledge campaign which has accompanied the making of the new album had already raised the veil a little bit, just like the post-apocalyptic video for the…

Interview with Johan van Mulken, the man behind the Downhill festival

Interview with Johan van Mulken, the man behind the Downhill festival

  According to Johan van Mulken, the qualities which are crucial to organise a festival like the Downhill festival are being stubborn and passionate, having many many years of experience and a large network, being ready to take a risk, having some self-confidence, and being capable of relying on the professional team of more or less 10 persons that he usually gathers. Johan started the Downhill festival out of frustration in 2004, when there were…

26th Wave-Gotik-Treffen; Leipzig, Germany, 2-5 June 2017 – festival review

  Wave Gotik Treffen is undoubtedly the largest, as well as one of the oldest, Goth festivals in the world. We visited Leipzig, Germany, to participate in its 26th incarnation from 2nd to 5th June 2017. One of the key features of WGT, the one that makes it so different from the other festivals, is that it is a citywide event where concerts, exhibitions and various other events happen in all parts of the city,…

Cubanate “Brutalism 2017” + Empirion + Kanga + Je$us Loves Amerika + Cease2Xsit: O2 Academy Isligton, 30/04/2017- shows review

  It’s almost impossible to write this review objectively and without too much emotion. What happened on this Sunday 30 April was memorable for everyone present. Despite my very high expectations I wasn’t the least disappointed! I arrived to the venue rather early because of the meeting scheduled with Kanga Duchamp and Matthew Setzer; I had the opportunity to spend some time with these two exceptional artists who had flown all the way from USA…

Laibach at Volksbühne 19.04.2017 review

  On this night, the Slovenian group Laibach took over the small atmospheric theatre named Volksbühne situated in the middle of a busy street in Cologne, Germany. For the audience, the name of this theatre invoked the name of Laibach’s album ‘Volk’, a collection of songs inspired by national anthems. The German word ‘Volk’ means ‘people’. The theatre used to be called Millowitsch-Theater in 1936 but now it’s named Volksbühne am Rudolfplatz. It used to…

E-Tropolis, 18.03.2017 – TURBINENHALLE OBERHAUSEN (D) – review

  In an industrial area between the modern steel and glass there are still some old brick halls. These have suffered greatly from the time they were empty, but now they have been transformed into a beautiful concert venue. The raw industrial building is an appropriate place for this festival which is organized here for the 4th time. Some previous editions took place in Berlin. The venue consists of the central hall for the register,…
