Arse, missing "for just £20" from my very first sentence.

I thought I could make it work because you look a bit like a man (aldo), Sunday, 27 September 2009 13:03 (4 years ago) Permalink

Dang, I've had ppl say this was good but in approx 2% as much detail as your review so for now I'm saying I'm glad I bailed on this

I told u I was deathcore (DJ Mencap), Sunday, 27 September 2009 13:43 (4 years ago) Permalink

i went and i thought it was great. didn't think the sound in the main hall was bad at all, or the second hall, and when thoughtforms played in the foyer, the several floors of natural reverb above them made them sound immense. and i really didn't miss any of the non-musical festival sideshow stuff, because i guess in my head it was more like zipping between the rooms of the RFH in london than even something like ATP.

thought the crowd was cool for the most part, though people lying on the floor during gonga was annoying. some crazy ecstasy dancing from some pretty weird dudes in the audience at the end of fuck buttons too.

2 years pass...

So, Barrow's Judge Dredd inspired record with Ben Salisbury. Halfway through and it's a good John Carpenter homage with some Vangelis thrown in there.

I want to buy this but the only option seems to be boxset + t-shirt = £40. Hmm.

This record is fun! Reminds me of that Gatekeeper record, as well as Carpenter/ Vangelis mentioned above.

Adding this to my list of Geoff Barrow side projects to obsess over along with Anika, BEAK>, Quakers, etc.

It's not on Invada, but man, Quakers is fucking great. Also the podcast for Stones Throw (mixed by 7Stu7, I think) about a month ago. Silver Apples, KMD, Joe Meek, Gang Starr, Public Enemy, mmm.

I think a new Beak> record comes out next month.

Invada Twitter confirms that new Beak> stuff will follow the release of the Drive OST vinyl. I'm very much looking forward to it.

and yeah, my only complaint with the Quakers album is that it's too long and that the length makes the MCs blur into one another. but I don't think that's an entirely valid complaint.
