” When i arrive, late due to the traffic, the show was three tracks old! The pace was  packed and very steamy.There was no photo area so i had to make do with snapping from within and on the periphery of the crowd. Savages are just that live, savage. The sound is repetitive and hypnotic. is funky and hard and melodic and is very reminiscent of early Siouxie and The Banshees! The comparison  jumps straight out at you and presents itself with no delay or distraction! This is  clear on tracks like   ‘The Answer”, ” She Will”, ”Fuckers” but mostly on ”Strife” and ”Marshal Daer”PJ Harvey jumps out at you when listening to ”TIWYG” but mostly its pure Savages!! The set was full of energy and the band did not let up until the end, Jhenny Beth indulging in a bit crowd surfing near the end, i think it was the track before ”Fuckers”. My first time at a Savages show, well worth it in my view!!”

JOTNARR, TRAENENKIND, DAWN RAY’S AND HERETOIR LIVE!!!

 

Venue:- The Unicorn, Camden, London, Uk

”A night of black metal offered up by three bands i’ve not heard of before and Jotnarr which i have!! The  sets were concise with minimal frippery between tracks and the feeling was one of ceremony where the music did the talking and the low lighting set the mood! The mood was one of focus!! I left the pub feeling sonically satiated and very tired!! i was involved fully in the experience!!!” I missed Heretoir due to aformentioned tiredness, there will be other times to experience them!!

”This was another night put on by Post Punk Club and Deadfall Management at the world famous Electrowerkz in Islington, which by the way needs our support at the moment due to cross rail attempting to get their grubby paws over OUR creative space, which is not on!! Anyway, the bands! i was supposed to see  Psydoll and Global Citizen at The Resistance Gallery in Hackney last year but due to part of the sound system blowing up Global Citizen pulled out of the event. Psydoll played on though with a cobbled together sound system which was terrible in my opinion but i applauded the fact that they decided to carry on with their set, after all the travelling they had done it would have been wasted energy and money if they hadn’t. On this occasion however the sound was  much much better and fires/loud bangs and what have you were none existent. Psydoll, what can i say about Psydoll now i hear them with a decent sound system? They are a cyberpunk/industrial duo that have been in existence since 1997 that consists of Nekoi Psydoll on  vocals/Keyboards and Ucchi Psydoll on guitar/programming. The sound is very idiosyncratic and takes time to get into, the guitars are sublime and the vocals delivered in Japanese with a childlike bent in places. I like but not as much as Global Citizen!!”

Global Citizen are very cerebral, deep and dark!! They are like a key to the subconcious, the words are sparse mostly and one is left with simple refrains that echo around inside of your head waiting for a life event to happen so that the meanings appears. photographs developing  in a bath of bromophen! They are also primal, all my moves come from the groin! They are a  band of contrasts, deep deep black, gun metal greys, metallic tones and bright whites!! Enough said, i like!! Oh, and they hvae a passing resemblance to Gary Numan!!”
