Brief weekend break to Berlin to see Parov Stelar live last Friday (19th October) at Collumbiahalle. We looked a bit outsiders since we did not constantly carry a bottle of beer in our hands, but other than that great gig, very entertaining show.Get a glimpse of it below with “Matilda” and “Jimmy’s Gang”.

“Fear” as performed by Project Pitchfork last night in Islington Academy.

Anyone else thinks Massive Attack‘s “Pray for Rain” from the latest album “Heligoland” is a cunning resemblance of the idiosyncratic and strange melodies of Sonic Youth?? For example, I think it would fit very well in “NYC Ghosts and Flowers“. Even the vocals sound similar!

This one has stuck in my mind lately; it’s the 1993 classic from Slowdive, the ultimate representative of beautiful shoegaze, “When the sun hits“. And the challenge question is: which hit song from early nineties does the chorus resemble? And it’s a cunning resemblance too!

Totally mind blowing live set from Combichrist at Slimelight -yeah yeah that was two weeks ago but I didn’t have time to upload anything as I was in Japan for a week… Enjoy a brief part from “Today I woke to the rain of blood” and some photos as well

A quick one to list up the interesting gigs I have spotted for October. As always, the period immediately after summer is very exciting in this respect, and this October is no exception. So here we go in date order:

Happy Birthday ClubAC30: 5 years of shoegazer, post-rock, electronica, and experimental music -of the highest quality! I have personally spent lots of magic moments since I first “discovered” ClubAC30 back in May 2005. So here is a small sample of them in no particular order.

Industrial dance at its finest! That was Revolution by Night and Covenant last night at Electric Ballroom -with a short and slightly irrelevant stint from Mesh in between. Enjoy “Like Tears in the Rain” from an amazing night!
