Drab Majesty London show review

Drab Majesty London show review

  On 12 February Moth Club hosted one of the most intriguing young acts I could have possibly wished to see, Drab Majesty. I arrived in time to see the supporting act Dune Messiah. I knew nothing about the band, apart from the fact they came from Denmark. However, I was very pleasantly surprised by the trio. The band is undoubtedly indebted to the neo-folk music expression and has been inspired by the genre. Although…

Fields of the Nephilim, Sketetal Family and Salvation @ O2 Forum Kentish Town, London,  22nd December 2018 – review

  For the past few years post-apocalyptic gothic cowboys, Fields of the Nephilim have celebrated the shortest day with their fans, by putting on a ‘Saturnalia’ show to London. For the Winter solstice of 2017 they were joined by fellow 80’s gothic acts Salvation, and Skeletal Family, at O2 Forum in Kentish Town. Despite have been interested in gothic rock for 20 years, Salvation are a band I could not remember hearing about before they…

Soulfieldswave Festival, Kortrijk, Blegium, 25/11/2017 – review

Soulfieldswave Festival, Kortrijk, Blegium, 25/11/2017 – review

  Kortrijk is a pretty and cosy town in the Flemish province of West Flanders in Belgium, well connected to Brussels and Gent with the fast train. Much of the city’s medieval architecture remained intact and is remarkably well preserved and restored. The city centre is one of the largest car-free areas in Belgium, which makes this pretty town a great place to enjoy relaxing strolls in the calm and quiet environment. The béguinage, as…

OMD’s 2017 tour: Guildford performance at G Live, 11. November 2017

OMD’s 2017 tour: Guildford performance at G Live, 11. November 2017

  Saturday, 11 November 2017, was a great day to visit Guildford’s G Live concert venue. OMD paid a visit to the heart of Surrey to perform one of the best shows I’ve ever seen. The night started at 8 PM with the supporting act Tiny Magnetic Pets. The trio warmed up the audience with synth pop/electropop vibrant and dancy numbers. Although I wasn’t familiar with the band’s opus, I quite enjoyed the show. The…

The Birthday Massacre, Lesbian Bed Death and Pythia @ Sub 89, Reading 1st November 2017 – review

  Enigmatic Canadian’s The Birthday Massacre recently toured the UK with their 8 date Under Your Spell tour. They covered most of the UK including shows in London, Whitby Goth Weekend and, more unusually, Sub89 in the town of Reading. The supporting acts of the evening were Lesbian Bed Death and Pythia. Symphonic metallers Pythia kicked off the show. As expected for a band who have been in existence for a decade, they have a…

Gary Numan at Brighton Dome Concert Hall, 16.10.2017 – review

Gary Numan at Brighton Dome Concert Hall, 16.10.2017  – review

  It was Monday morning, after our walk along the promenade at Brighton beach. There were many seagulls flying on the bright blue sky when suddenly a sandy-coloured fog materialised as a filter in front of the sun. The temperature changed as the sun became a clear red dot that we observed without any eye-protection. I guess that by then Gary Numan’s tour busses had to have arrived at the Brighton Dome, the venue for…

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…
