This one is overdue and under cooked. In a rare event of two nights out in a row I caught a couple of great gigs last week.
Thursday was Peter Hook & the Light. Currently touring the early New Order albums Movement and Power, Corruption & Lies. I’ve played both of these to death in the past so have been really looking forward to these shows. Hooky doesn’t disappoint. The band seem to spend a lot of time on the road and are tight and enthusiastic. The Rescue Rooms has great sound for a small venue and even near the front it was not so loud as to be distorted. Encouraging to see a large number of middle-aged chaps joshing at certain points as well.
Here’s a sample of it. It jumps around along with the crowd.
The following clip if from the next night in Holmfirth.
With the current kickball competition on-going they also did ‘World In Motion’ which seemed to get some enthused. For me the closing riot of ‘Temptation’ did the trick. Here’s a properly filmed version.
The following night was the Brian Jonestown Massacre. Currently touring to promote their new album ‘Revelation’ . They are still a 5 guitarapocalypse of psych rock. The new album is a great thing and they mixed new and old material throughout the show. This is ‘The Devil May Care (Mom & Dad Don’t). This was filmed by the bloke standing next to me during the show.
Anton seemed in fairly decent humour and only stopped the band twice to whup them into shape.
This is a song from the new album, ‘Vad Hande Med Dem’. I believe its Swedish.
If you have an urge theres a demo version of the album here. Dig!
Blue vinyl! mmmmmmmmm……
