Re: This Ain't No Picnic 2008

I'm beginning to wish I'd taken my proper camera, but still got some decent shots with my phone camera....

and I got to have a quick chat with Fumi and my photo taken with her, ace!:)

Re: This Ain't No Picnic 2008

Nice!

There was only two songs I wanted them to play but they didn't. Colon, I would have liked but was in no way expecting and New Wave Jacket, simply because it was the first time I'd seen them live and that's one you've got to see really.

According to the setlist, New Wave Jacket was on until the last minute where it got replaced by Tei! Tei! Tei! (when Yano tried to sneak on stage without drawing applause).

Re: This Ain't No Picnic 2008

Who was that nice man holding up the set lists for us?? That was pretty cool of him.
Did anyone ask why they dropped Dry Or Wet? I know me and Guy shouted "play Dry Or Wet!" at one point and Hiro just sighed "yeah..."

Some nice photos there, I defintley recognise you. Will say hello if I see you at another gig:)

I was literally stood next to Fumi:) Ace:)

Re: This Ain't No Picnic 2008

Some nice photos folks!

Only got back home this afternoon and have 200 photos to sort through, mostly of Fumi (imagine that) and many of which are blurry. Will sort through them and bung them somewhere hopefully tomorrow.

I'd rank the show up there with the best I've seen by them - I also still live in hope of seeing Colon live one day, but I can easily live with the set list we got. I didn't realise how bass-heavy WatM really is until I was stood in front of Fumi's amp experiencing every note, and I was pleasantly surprised that some of the singing that I thought was Kayo was actually Fumi.

In summary: Polysics continue to rock my world.

Other bands that made an impression:

Brontosaurus Chorus - any band with a cello, violin, trumpet and a Microkorg is bound to catch my interest.

Applicants - hard to describe what was going on here (sort of Melt-Banana meets CSS?), but they were so off-the-wall I kind of fell in love. All together now: "Evelyn Waugh, Evelyn Waugh, I pretended you were my fav'rite author..." Total chaos at times but incredibly fun.

Re: This Ain't No Picnic 2008

Were applicants the band on before Polysics? I thought they were pretty tight if they were. They xylophone keyboardist was a bit of a mentallist.

Re: This Ain't No Picnic 2008

In other news... I love my new WATM T-shirt. But it's still not a POLY'S KEY ARE HELD BY YOU! Tee.

Nah, that was 'The Strange Death of Liberal England'. We thought they were poncey twats. big_smile

Re: This Ain't No Picnic 2008

They're not the sort of thing I'd generally listen to, but I definitely think they knew their songs inside out and worked together flawlessly.

My pal did say the lead singer reminded him of another friend's brother trying to sing David Bowie after downing a bottle of gin and being repeatedly punched in the face. Having seen both, there were definite similarities...

Re: This Ain't No Picnic 2008

I don't think I saw/noticed any of the other bands except for the one when we got there that hurt Guy's ears. I'm bad at Polysics gigs. Waiting for the quiet time between bands so I can terrify the merch girl is not the way forward...

it really annoyed me haha it went:

me: DRY OR WET!!

hiro: Dry or wet?

me: YES!

hiro: ok *plays electric surfin gogo*

what the hell?!

either way it was a really good show, the levels were kind of messed up, but i enjoyed the set, and glad they are finally playing their new stuff in places apart from japan. it sucked when they had a new album but carried on playing the same old jazz.

They really sucked, nothing was good about them, and the singer looked like the guy from the remake of starsky and hutch who sings at the party.

none of the support bands were good, i don't think anyone liked them really, whenever i looked down there was about 20 people max on the floor, sad times.
