Best Concert Ever

...that I've been to. Two nights of artists on surely one of the best new labels, Kscope. Got 2 signed copies of rThe Raven That Refused to Sing from Stevie Wilson, who sat 3 metres away from me for some of it and then rDanny Cavanagh out of Anathema walked past me, so I'm basically famous. rMy first gig since I was a wee nipper, when I saw Linkin Park. How times have changed.
8Henry Fool
Men Singing

DAY 1: Tim Bowness' jazz fusion supergroup. Instruments were very tight, some pretty groovy
fretless bass goin' on. Couldn't even hear Bowness' guitar, and he was facing away from the crowd
most of thr time, the shy bastard. Strongly recommend this album to any fusion fans.

Very impressive set, Giancarlo Erra is a darn good guitarist and his solos rocked the place. Nice spin
on Fading Silently and they played I Miss the Ground and Paralysed (which was stunning) from the
new album. Go geddit
6Bruce Soord with Jonas Renkse
Wisdom of Crowds

FIRST EVER LIVE GIG I'M SO SPECIAL. Stevie Wilson at the mixing desk, Jonas being as stone cold
and fat as ever, Bruce's guitar at its best... and best is one of [i]the[/i] best. Seriously this is one of
the best albums of the year.
The Octopus

Earshatteringly loud. This pussy had a headache after the end they were so friggen loud. Blew the
place away with Mot?rhead and Bruce Soord guested for Matmos even though you couldn't hear
him. They wasted 20 minutes on Extra Vehicular and Paris in the Spring and didn't play Interstellar
or Forever & More which was a massive bummer. Still, they sung the 'happy birthday' song, what
more could you need?
The Kiss of Spirit and Flesh

DAY 2: Anathema's Danny Cavanagh's side project. Very short set, all acoustic which ruined
Bethlehem which could have been awesome. Get this if you want Anathema with a folk/celtic twist
Dark Age

Man, this was weird. Strange guitar noises eoth the vocalist shouting and singing "doo rah doo rah"
over and over. Drummer was great though, doin' some African-style beats.
2North Atlantic Oscillation
Fog Electric

Pretty solid set, they played Soft Coda which was a highlight but missed out Cell Count which I was
hoping to hear. These guys are gonna make a masterpiece some day.
1 Anathema
We're Here Because We're Here

Ah, Anathema. The crowd went wild and clapped along. I stood still and nodded my head because
I'm too cool for that shit. Danny encouraging us to clap and shouting "let's go!" during songs
annoyed my ass cuz it spoiled the atmosphere but they played all of their best songs, including the
mindblowing The Beginning and The End. Closer was the encore which was a killer and they even
announced a guy was about to propose to his girlfriend... but she was in the toilet.
