Patrick Duff @ Bristol Folk House, Bristol, 17 May 2019 – review

  Patrick Duff has always been one of my favourite songwriters, and a great influence to my own creative mind. Unfortunately, I missed every chance to see Strangelove live because I didn’t live in the UK until 2014, but despite that, my love for their and Patrick’s work has always stayed strong. That’s why, when I saw Patrick had announced a show with a band in Bristol, I knew I had to take this opportunity…

Vans Presents Industrial Accident: The Story Of Wax Trax Records With Exclusive Set By Ministry/Cold Cave @ Teragram Ballroom, Los Angeles, 23 April – review

  Whether you dug through the crates or slam-danced in the pit at a RevCo show, chances are if you lived in Chicago in the 80s and early 90s, you set foot in the legendary Wax Trax! store. Founded first as a record store in 1975 and then established as a label in 1980 by the industrial scene’s favorite power couple Jim Nash and Dannie Flesher, the Wax Trax store and label created a seismic…

Suede, April 2019 UK tour: Southampton performance at O2 Guildhall Southampton on 27 April

  On 27nd April we had the opportunity to see Suede live for the second time, this time in Southampton. It was the night of Suede special treats for the fans and loving audience. Suede’s music has always been a great inspiration in my life and I am sure I am not speaking only for myself. Unlike so many people who saw them live over the years, my first real opportunity to see the great…

Mortiis @ Lodge Room, Highland Park, Los Angeles, April 7th 2019 – review

Mortiis @ Lodge Room, Highland Park, Los Angeles, April 7th 2019 – review

  The genre-defying Mortiis has an impressively broad catalog of albums, ranging in styles from metal to ambient. At The Lodge in Los Angeles on Sunday April 7, he played a solo set of exclusively Era I material. Openers Wilshire Corridor and Minor Conquest were a compelling addition to the lineup. Solo artist Minor Conquest started the set, lurking in the shadows of his synths in sunglasses and creating a commanding presence with ethereal sounds….

Leaether Strip @ O2 Academy Islington, London, 02/12/2018 – review

Leaether Strip @ O2 Academy Islington, London, 02/12/2018 – review

  On Sunday we went to O2 Academy in Islington to round up a quite eventful weekend of live performances in London with the final show of Leaether Strip’s, celebratory, 30th anniversary UK tour. The London gig was supported by Machine Rox, My Hysteria and Mechanical Cabaret who all did an excellent job of warming up the crowd, which was, quite possibly, larger than expected after all the drama of And One cancellation. Even before…

M’era Luna Festival, 11.-12. August 2018, Hildesheim, Germany – Review

M’era Luna Festival, 11.-12. August 2018, Hildesheim, Germany – Review

  Day 1 M’era Luna 2018 took place on the Hildesheim airfield, south of Hanover. Festival revellers were blessed with pleasant, sunny, but not too hot weather, a contrast from the previous year’s mud-fest. The festival attracts well over 20,000 revellers to a strong line-up of bands, with a side medieval market, fashion shows and workshops, clothing and music merchants, and a good mix of food and drink outlets. Many will camp at the site…

XIV. AMPHI FESTIVAL 2018, 28. & 29.07.2018 – COLOGNE | TANZBRUNNEN – Review

  Amphi Festival has for many years been one of the main European festivals for the gothic scene. This year Tanzbrunnen in Cologne was “dark” again, although the line up suggested some brighter moments as well. The conditions for the festival were perfect. Even though we missed the warm up party the day before we were eager to head to the Main stage on the first day. We came in time to see The Creepshow….

Ministry @ O2 Forum Kentish Town, London, July 21st, 2018 – review

Ministry @ O2 Forum Kentish Town, London, July 21st, 2018 – review

  On July 21st we went to O2 Forum in Kentish Town where Ministry promoted their current album AmeriKKKant. After the opening act left the stage, the crew started preparing the stage for the main event, placing two white balloon chickens with Trump-like tops and crossed swastika signs on the front corners of the stage, thus setting the tone of the evening. Although shows from bands with long careers generally attract middle-aged crowds, which also…
