IMAGINE HOW HOT WE'D GET UNDER THE LIGHTS
Incredible show the other night - all the bands pulled a blinder, and if you came out, we thank you from the bottom of our putrid bucket of cow's hearts. Personal highlights would have to be a) The appearance of Doddodo, a little Japanese girl from Scotch Egg's Wrong Music gang. We didn't even know she was coming down until that morning, but as soon as she crawled out of the toilet with a strange head-dress and a microphone rammed in her mouth in an unhygenic and faintly erotic way we knew something curious was afoot. And, b) Philip Best's Consumer Electronics set. Must confess, we had some bad dreams about him being bottled off, as his two-piece Whitehouse were at the ATP Easy To Swallow event, and the fact everyone stayed transfixed all set is of great satisfaction to us.
Incidentally, the main vocal riff of his 30-minute set went something like this:
"Now imagine, now imagine
A ballet at the Welsh National opera
For six hundred brown nosed children around ten
We’ll be wearing special costumes
And carrying baseball bats, studded with nails
It’d be like clubbing seals
As we wheel across the stage
Harvesting our crop
Imagine how hot we’d get
Imagine their little faces looking up"
As Keith Lesson No.1, now sadly departed for greener shores, said: "Put this man on the English curriculum now!"
There are some videos too, but oh shit they're big, and they won't stay up for long. Click here for USAISAMONSTER, crashing into the Lesson No.1 cameraman in an exciting moment of mid-gig aggression. Consumer Electronics vid coming soon.
So much more to write, and so little time: forthcoming posts on Melt Banana, Neptune, and the Lesson No.1 pub quiz (oh yes) just mere days away...
