12.10.11 Greatest Live Acts 2011

Greatest Live Acts 2011

The greatest artists I've had the good fortune to see live this year and the best song they played

Surprised by them actually, really liked that song when he whined something about someone
24The Strokes

They actually played Last Night with emotion. Great set and much nostalgia for the days when I needlessy hated them for being so lazy and apathetic

Despite it raining so hard I couldn't see Jarvis Cocker, I thought Common People still held up
22The National

Mr November is a tune, and their other songs ain't too shabby either
21Kode 9 and the Space Ape

Trapped in the Bergain with a Space Ape crawling all over the walls. Too much bass to pick out any one song

Until i saw this, I thought the bass guitar was just a figment of my imagination

Wish You Were Here is THE dance anthem of the year
18Bok Bok and Girl Unit

Dropping some massive Nightslug tunes for us South London thugs. Wut?
17Hudson Mohawke

Was underwhelming until he played Boards of Canada. High fived myself

Safehouses is one of the best future garage releases of the last few years, his live set is no less astounding

All Nite makes you dance...all night

Fucker played Zomby's Black Orchid. I jizzed in my pants

Pretty chill, then they drop Yearning and the world explodes

Classical Medley from the greatest underground drummer in the world today

He says SUN over and over and over again. And it's incredible
10Kassem Mosse

Spaced out techno from the mysterious genius. Untitled track with Lowtec and lots of subtle grooving
9James Blake

The bass drop on Limit For Your Love that washes your brain away

NicK Cave is a badman. Mickey Mouse prove it

Machine Gun rips the place apart
6Kayo Dot

Coyote is amazing. The Antique is mindblowing
5Amon Tobin

ISAM is an LSD style wonderland, and Marine Machines is one of my favourite songs. Together = mindfuck of the highest order

The most powerful live act I've even seen, more hypnotizing than ISIS and more fervent than even DEP. The live version of I Crawled brought the house down
3Godspeed You! Black Emperor

I found my Finnish friend who didn't know their music outside the concert in the snow. He said 'I didn't understand it for half an hour and then it got too emotional and I started crying and had to leave'. BBF III did this

Satisfied with 10000 people belting out 'Purple Rain' along with him, Prince then returned to his palace on Saturn in a stormy ascension of fireworks and explosions

Quite simply the most astounding DJ set i've ever laid ears on. Dropped Burial's anthem Archangel for a 6am emotional warehouse singalong of truly epic proportions
