Minghe Morte’s Requiem

Here’s my only photo of last week’s Minghe Morte gig at the Fenton.

Maybe due to the nasty weather, the turnout was very low which impacted quite a lot on the atmosphere. Minghe Morte‘s music was again full of raw energy. Chris Bussey‘s drumming seems to get better and better every time I see him. One major disappointment (apart from the tiny audience): the sound ruined a lot of the performance. It sounded like a massive reverb was drowning most of the subtleties that make Minghe Morte so great.

I also saw Rumple Bombaclaat vs Don’t Lick the Knife. As laptop gigs go, this was pretty good with a few real gems emerging from the general chaos of noise generated by the 2 PowerBooks.

  1. Your right, the sound was bad… inexperienced sound engineer and possibly faulty system (there were problems during soundcheck with the bass bins). We won’t be going out without our own PA in future, unless we’re playing somewhere like the Wardrobe. A new demo CD will be recorded over the next couple of months… Elisabeth Nygaard wants to contribute something which should be fun… I might see you at the Wardrobe if you’re going to the Cuong Vu gig.

  2. Yup. I think replace ‘inexperienced’ with ‘inexperienced, big-talking fuckwit wanker of a’ and you’ve hit the nail on the head. I enjoyed the gig though, playing and watching.

    Thanks for coming, really nice to get some good feedback.
