Bohren & Der Club Of Gore

Postby el capitan danjou on Sat Apr 30, 2005 6:04 pm

I saw Isis in London last Wednesday and they were excellent. Really, really excellent.

The nicest surprise - the opening band - "Bohren and Der Club of Gore".

If you've not heard them, they are probably best described as slow, gentle and very, very tense. Makes me think of David Lynch films.

I recommend.

Yo Capitan!

I thought Isis were excellent when I saw them in Glasgow, but I have to say that the support band Jehu I found pretty boring. They came highly recommended, but made me feel really 'meh'.

Do you mean Jesu?
As far as Bohren & Der Club Of Gore go, I find them to be very boring.
Did they play in the box?
I've heard the play in all black and inside a black box with white instruments and blacklights.
Better yet, eat the placenta!!!

No box that I saw.

I can understand the "boring" shout, def. got to be in the mood for it. I was playing some poker this evening, and it sat well then though.

Also, I thought they were a million miles better than Jesu on Wednesday night - very average.

Like, "ex-Gore"? Like, ex-members of a band that released one of my favourite fucked up records of all time (Lifelong Deadline)?

I could see the logical outcome of that timeline being a gentle, repetitive and tense musics. Cool.

They're not ex-members of Gore, but they are named after them. Definitely worth checking out, I think.

I used to find them boring, but, somehow, last week this changed. Now I love them. Black Earth is a great record.

Their records are highly addictive. What are they like live? I just imagine them to be shoegazy in the shadows...

really amazing stage setup! they used to tour with a drummer, but this time the guy who plays the piano played the bass drum and the hi-hat and the bass player played a ride and a snare with pedals. they also have a snare on the stage which spins around on a stand only to produce the typical snare drum noise in their songs. absolutely great!

I was at home last night, knowing they were playing at Dachstock - it was real torture.
It must have been quite something to this band in this venue, by far one of my favorite in CH.
In a nutshell, I'm dead jealous of you bassdriver. :smt006

unfortunately they do shitty discos at the Dachstock most of the time now. haven't seen a good band there for quite some time. if I remember correctly, Bohren plays in Luzern tomorrow!!

I'm aware they're in Luzern tonight - total bollocks.

I agree with you, I always keep an eye on this venue and I've noticed a decline of "quality bands" indeed in the last few years. Last time I went to see a band there was Dinosaur Jr last year.
It was a very cool show....and it was a funny experience as well, I was on ecstasy. :oops:
Lou Barlow totally opened my shakra that night. ;-)
