Wow - nice quality for a phone cam, thank you!
I was there and was wondering what was on the laptop's lit up apple -
a black cat. That also reminds me - WTF was he doing with the white
Senn 421mic? Vocoding into something completely unrecognizable as
voice I'm sure. So yeah, I was there and unfortunately had spent the
afternoon drinking so I was queasy and stayed back by the doors or
bathroom (awesome sink in that place's bathroom). I scored the orange
clock-like t-shirt and totally enjoyed the show. I jotted down the
first few of the playlist but lost track. I got :
Return To Bass
Lonely Soldier Dub
something like Spanish Vocoder-ish but with "Watch Television" as the
samples theme - real cool. Reminded me of EBN.
Helter fuckin Skelter - dude this turned into the heaviest most
slammin awesome synchopated stomp ever - woah. Looks like SF got the
same : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UryJGov-bR8
Can't get enough Spock and Kirk.
I Hold the Mic
It's the Music
..then It goes bye-bye - can't remember all or the order.
I know Genocide was in there with Jack doing his live vocals throwing
in the "consequences" stuff in the chorus.
Edge of No Control pt 2 with live vocals - sweet!
some more ....
House of God
and the tribute to the drums starring Lynn and Buddy Rich lol.
I can't forget the video sequence of people falling off stuff, the
exploding head, and the Rasta rant. Plus "turn on this fuckin
microphone", and (possibly farting)TV Evangelist Robert Tilton.
The subtle humor is always great.
ie: "It's the Music" is starting, and as Evangelist Jimmy Swaggart is
saying "dope-filled entertainers and performers", Lynn and Mark start
pointing fingers at each other and the band....awesome.
I'm sure I saw a bunch of you there - I was mostly at the bar in the
back nursing Heinekens, 6 foot, tan corduroy coat, short blond hair.
There was a guy dancing his ass off in the opposite corner by the
kitchen doors. My man was all about good clean fun getting hit by the
beats and moving. I heard him comment to another guy who he knew (blue
dreads, mad zippers all over him and like metal aviation goggles on
top holding the dreads as a hairband) - saying "what happened to
everyone - why isn't everyone jumping like crazy to this?" I'm not
sure I have an answer. Many people were, but most were up front near
the stage, not in the back row. I felt old cause that used to be me,
going all-out on the dance floor, knowing not if I looked foolish or
not...but I was around 21, and out late at clubs, and single, and not
a Dad...THAT's what happened.
As for me, as time creeps up on me, I actually think things like, "can
I afford hurting myself in the name of fun? Is "moshing" covered in my
insurance policy? (other shows) .This encompasses accidents from
everything from dancing hard and pulling a muscle, getting cut,
falling, etc... I personally didn't have enough drinks in me to let
loose on top of having a hangover from the afternoon session. I just
absorbed the sounds and images, and then wondered what the hell as we
got herded out after 1 encore to make room for....something else?
Something gay? I don't know. There was a line outside to get in with
all sorts of characters.
Some St. Marks Pizza, and as the rain started, I headed home.
No negatives other than no Solid Waste, and the bass bins could've
been a little hotter.
I'm at work and shouldn't be writing a novel, so Peace!
