i was kinda impressed by the first Mars Volta record, but now i don't see the point anymore... they're just a mess.

i happened to see the Eels last night because i worked there. it was good fun, didn't know them before. only 2 guys, swithcing between 7 instruments, lots of nice danelectro guitars. and they played Zep's Good Times Bad Times. wooha!

oh, you didn't enjoy the mars volta? (it must have been about 2 1/2h+ btw winking smiley

will have them in cologne tomorrow, and thanks to a flashback to frances and the debut (i really did not like amputecure) plus some kicks from the new -heavy- album i am quite in the mood for this these days! only hope that they'll keep the 2 more acoustic bits that were introduced in the set in italy... and that palladium does not kill the mood!

and eh, i saw band of horsres too over here (why is berlin so far away smiling smiley
i think i feel quite similar: they are living something there, nice guys, good songmaterial and the ability to spice the air... though a little crazy edge or guitar-orgy are missing eye rolling smiley However:

motorpsycho is back :-))))

it was great indeed, after the sound went better and a smoke made me relax... knowledge of the "songs" is definately needed in a 3 hours set we had there in cologne, too sad that talking and the shouting of one guy took "Miranda" andthe cream of a supermood onstage...

the new drummer Thomas is a *sheer killer*

eeerm - this reminds me on someting ;-)))

autechre? great! some of the very few electro acts to check out. listened their music quite often some years ago - how are they nowadays? the gig in hambourg hafenklang? ...and if i remember it right: autechre played on last years melt-festival. motorpsycho was there, too.

i'm gonna attend motorpsycho in hambourg as well. and maybe I'll be going to bremen, too.

yes, right, the autechre gig was at hafenklang. it was massive but way too short (aprox. 1h. + dj, etc). i´m not that much into autechre, but i went with a friend who is a big fan. i hoped for a at least somehow "danceable" set and i wasn´t disappointed! best way au could do it for me. on cd they use to be more abstract and deconstructing, but their show was , hm, groovy noise with some real thunderstorms of sound!
btw, the hall/room was completely dark. absolutely no light(show). one could hardly see anything. pure sound - i loved it!

Today (in about 14 hours) I will leave to the "Southside Festival"
and although the last three times I said something like: "this is the last time for me here, the most of the crowd really anoys me" I'm going again this year...
But every year there are some (mostly not the "big"winking smiley bands making it worth to visit this event once again.

Anyway, I'm really forward to see these bands for the first time this year:
-Calexico
-Radiohead
-Tocotronic
-The Notwist
-Rodrigo y Gabriela
-Oceansize
-Nada Surf
and Foo Fighters
maybe Shantel, maybe Operator Please, maybe also some of the other "main acts"...

anyone here has seen some of these bands live before? were they good?

I bought a ticket to Øyafestivalen, so I'll be watching bands like
Sonic Youth, Sigur Ros, Turbonegro, Mayhem and My Bloody Valentine.

I also have a ticket to Jethro Tull; they're doing a 40 year-anniversary tour
this year. I have a ticket to the Norwegian concert which is the last stop
of the entire tour eye popping smiley

Hey all,

@ OtherOtherNils: I saw Radiohead during the OK Computer-tour, they were very good, amazing dynamics.

This saturday I'm going to see Meshuggah and The Dillinger Escape Plan. Never heard Meshuggah live before, but tDEP are amazing onstage.

Greetings,

Thomas
