May 6 - Belfast Barge

thats a fuckin great surprise.


This will be seriously good. Been listening to devotional songs in anticipation.

And also came across this, 25 minute set from Innercity a couple of weeks ago in Amsterdam, great great band.

I'm guessing this hasn't sold out yet and it'll be okay paying at the door? Are Bee Mask worth checking out?

Not sure if you made it, so here's a short report. I was originally concerned that it was going to sell out, but I'd say there were about 30 people there in total, if even that. Is Eyvind Kang really that unknown, or was it just poor promotion?

It was the first time I'd heard Bee Mask, but it wasn't really my thing to be honest. He created some underlying layers and loops which sounded great at times, but it was far too busy on top of that with him constantly adding redundant stuff with a kaoss pad or something similar. I couldn't help thinking of that episode of Friends where Ross presents his keyboard music - it really wasn't far off at times. I prefer a "less is more" approach myself.

However, Jessika Kenney and Eyvind Kang were incredible. I'm mostly familiar with his solo albums and contributions to Secret Chiefs 3. I'd heard some of the recent albums of theirs that were released by Stephen O'Malley, but it was much more powerful the other night. They started with Kenney on the balcony with Kang walking around the crowd on viola, and then moved on to the stage. A friend of mine saw them in Holland last week and thought it was a bit too focused on Kenney, but that wasn't the case here as Kang appeared to be leading the show with viola loops. That's not to take away from Kenney at all, and anyone who's more familiar with her appearances with bands such as Asva or Wolves In The Throne Room would have been blown away. The control they both have is really something, the tremolo playing by Kang in particular. I didn't recognise all of the tracks they did, but those that I did included some from Athlantis, Aestuarium, and the Story Of Iceland reworking from the recent Face Of The Earth album.

We were chatting to her for a while afterwards, very sound and down to earth. They said they might be touring again in October, but I'm not sure if they'll be back given the crowd.

shame about the turn out. I had something else on that night I had to attend otherwise I'd have been there, missing that and Mountains in the space of a month was a serious kick in the balls.

Still, Vatican Shadow next Very Happy Very Happy

I know that feeling, I missed Voivod, Dylan Carlson and Boris last year - the little man who arrived in Sept saw to that Smile
