So hard to believe that he only… well about 25 really (2:15 pm)
I started to write a review of Friday night's Kid 606 gig on Saturday morning, and the bloody browser window did something funny and I lost everything. Gotta love editing in browsers. So I'm doing this in a Notepad window where everything's safe, and I'll paste it in afterwards.
I really wasn't planning to review the show at all, but, well fuck me, it was outstanding. Definitely deserves a write-up. Best show I've been to at the Annandale, and I've played a couple myself *grin*
Following Pimmon were Brisbane's Ponyloaf, who unfortunately kinda sucked. It amusing to see Caleb K and Gary Bradbury (aka Size, ex-Severed Heads) heckling them mercilessly… Tom Ellard, afterwards, was trying to convince Bradbury that when he'd seen them in Brisbane they weren't bad, but on the night they had too much gear and did nothing with it. Some big breaks, lots of bad synth pads, lots of mad action on stage but it was just tediously try-hard. As somebody commented, "very Brisbane". *sigh*
Before Miguel hit the stage, we were treated to about 15 minutes of Lucas Abela aka DJ Smallcock torturing LP records with his patented (probably not) 17-needle-stylus-through-distortion-pedal combo (setup rather decoratively on a wheelchair for the proceedings). Lucas's Dual Plover records may be responsible for some CD pressings of a Tigerbeat 6-related label ;)
And then, after a brief wait, Kid 606 hit the stage, with 3, count 'em, 3 laptops. We engaged in much speculation regarding why he really needed 3 laptops… He had one black powerbook (presumably a G3 or something), one older titanium G4 plus a lovely widescreen G4. Nigel from Cindii thought he was probably only using maybe two at once, and they didn't seem to be synced, but it all worked very nicely thank you.
