Gary Numan’s 2016 Tour: London performance at Electric, Brixton

Gary Numan’s 2016 Tour: London performance at Electric, Brixton

  Just 9 days after Gary’s Oxford show, I had the great opportunity to see the final show of his tour in London. I was ready for the Replicas, The Pleasure Principle and Telekon repertoire one more time. However, Gary had announced several songs from Splinter and I was very much looking forward to hearing them live. I was pleasantly surprised by the venue in Brixton. I believe it was just the perfect place to…

Gary Numan’s 2016 Tour: Oxford performance at O2 Academy

Gary Numan’s 2016 Tour: Oxford performance at O2 Academy

  Unlike so many people who saw Gary live over the years, my first real opportunity to see the great electronic sound pioneer appeared only now, in 2016. When you live far from his more common venues, which I did until 2014, catching his performance is not easy. However, I knew I didn’t want to miss this fantastic opportunity to catch Gary on this tour, since I had really wondered if he would play Replicas,…

Infest 2016 Review

Infest 2016 Review

  This year I decided to miss out on some German festivals and visit Infest instead. I guess there is no-one who has unlimited time and capability to see it all and, being no exception, I always have to choose which of the many festivals I would visit. For many years I have been travelling to at least major German festivals and following there the performers who were practically regulars on their lineups. After checking…

Back to the Beach – Amphi Festival 2016 – review

Back to the Beach – Amphi Festival 2016 – review

  After a quick escape to the Lanxess Arena in Cologne last year Amphi Festival returned to the beach of the Rhine. It certainly saved this festival and made it a great one again. The Staatenhaus (we remember the ceiling came off under heavy Feindflug fire in 2009) was closed but instead of this ugly and too hot building the organizers booked a ship and named it Orbit Stage, which was definitely the coolest place…

EXPLOSIONS IN THE SKY – Brussels, AB (08/06/2016)

EXPLOSIONS IN THE SKY – Brussels, AB (08/06/2016)

Yes, it’s definitely true: music fans are strange creatures. While most people look for a place under the sun in mid-July, music fanatics opt to enter a pitch black venue and give themselves away to a noise carpet that perfectly indicates the border between heaven and hell. An ideal description, even if we say it ourselves. Sometimes it seems as if God knocks on your shoulder, while a few seconds later it feels like Satan…

25th Wave-Gotik-Treffen: May 13th to 16th, 2016. review

25th Wave-Gotik-Treffen: May 13th to 16th, 2016. review

  One more year, one more WGT splendid experience behind us! But the memories are still fresh and vibrant in our minds. This year WGT started with a special treat on May the 12th with a grand opening party at AbenteuerReich Belantis – an amusement park in the south of Leipzig, which we sadly missed due to our indeed long travel from London by car, and kids, don’t try this at home! 😉 We arrived…

PSYCHIC TV – Brussels, Recyclart (21/05/16)

PSYCHIC TV – Brussels, Recyclart (21/05/16)

It will be quite difficult to find one venue in Brussels that looks more underground than the Recyclart, it is very dark in there and the interior immediately makes you think of the 80s. An ideal place to see one of the most legendary bands from that period: Psychic TV. First Aikula played. You never heard of them before, you say? Mind you, neither did we! Their debut album Jate did well in homeland Slovenia…

MANIC STREET PREACHERS (Brussels, AB- 01/05/2016)

MANIC STREET PREACHERS (Brussels, AB- 01/05/2016)

When you have the CD in your hands, you can hardly understand it , but it is twenty years ago that Manic Street Preachers released Everything Must Go. Life is just a flash, and you’re barely able to fully enjoy the beauty of it. Partly out of nostalgia , and probably also partly from financial gain , the glam rockers from Wales decided to perform their fourth album that made them stars in the British…

THE ARCH – Brussels, The Backpacker Bar (29/04/2016) (CONCERT REVIEW)

THE ARCH – Brussels, The Backpacker Bar (29/04/2016) (CONCERT REVIEW)

The Arch is popular, but not necessary in its own country. This band was formed in 1986, worked with the famous Belgian producer Ludo Camberlin and the rest is like a small success story, at least abroad. The releases (from The Messier Album to In Sofa ) got The Arch to various European venues. Last year, we got an impression of Fates at BIMFest, but last Friday, the entire CD was presented (a collaboration between…

ChameleonsVox live at O2 Academy, Oxford, UK, 1/5/2016

ChameleonsVox live at O2 Academy, Oxford, UK, 1/5/2016

Just a week apart from their Kortrijk gig in Belgium, I really wanted to see ChameleonsVox again, this time in UK and with no camera, so I can enjoy the experience to the fullest. I arrived pretty early and took a stroll on the streets of Oxford, but hey, who did I find there at 5 pm? Mark was already at the venue doors and not to disturb that kind man, I just passed him…
