The Weekend

I've had a really busy weekend. What with it being Futuresonic, I've spent a lot of my time running round checking out various DJ's, acts and art installations. It's all been rather good fun. Friday night was spent watching the awesome Battles at Academy 2, followed by Shy Child at the Bierkeller. Shy Child were amazing: It's so good to see a so called disco-punk band using a drummer properly and without the need of overly fancy electronics.

Last night was spent catching Islands at the Roadhouse. They were freekin' brilliant guys, and not quite what I expected in person. They played straight versions of the album, with a shimmering full length Swans to close. Ace.

MP3 Shy Child - The Noise Won't Stop

MP3 Battles - SZ2

And check out Ear Farm, where there's a booty of a gig Islands performed in March.
