Sunday 28 October: Black celebration at the Forum|
On Sunday, not quite awake we had to make our way to Black Celebration (terrible idea to have it on Halloween festivities weekend) but lots of bands I was interested to see and we wanted to support the first band Machine Rox. As made of friends and well they are into mermaids. Really enjoyed them
DKAG. Not sure at all, just noise from Slimelight DJs . Not my cup of tea. Sadly would have loved a cup of tea as it was freezing inside the forum
Sulpher. Great high-energy show but let down by not hearing his low singing, still very cool and raw. Bits were very MM/NIN.
Empathy Test. Not sure, nice voice but all very samey slow synchpop. Rushed before the end to grab dinner as sadly after 7pm we would not be let back in . Very annoying as the band I wanted to see most were next and dinner during MESh would have been perfect…
Suicide Commando. Missed the first few songs but whoaaa, even better than I recall…proper angry energy that make you bounce happily (despite full of curry laksa..the only time I got nearly warm I think) My band of the night…
Mesh. Even worse that I recall…the beany burn the beany hat. A crowd divider , many friends loved them , many like me were so bored and annoyed they were right between to of the most exciting bands that night…
The Young Gods. As amazing as I remember, but I still have the same issue with them I see them live and think amazing mix of laibach, art bands, prog…in French…love his movements on stage but I afterward I always forget about them and not something I ever think of listening to.
DAF let’s just say my legs were tired, my fitbit had broken the 40000 steps and we decided to watch him from the balcony. Not quite the same, especially to bounce to but he was good and realise I really liked a few of his songs I have on in the gym just had not put the two together.
A great, freezing, exhausting day of music.
