Klaxons @ Chinnerys 26/5/2010


Support came from Baby Monster an unsigned indie/electro band from the USA. They got a good reaction from a very packed, sweat filled chinnerys crowd. I'm not always very easy to please when it comes to support acts I don't already know (although I try and show some support for them no matter what)! but I really enjoyed Baby Monster, the blend of indie and electro always goes down a treat for me and it was nice to have some music that I really wanted to dance to before the main act even came on.

Being a bit tipsy on cider I thought I would try and be brave and join some of my friends in the middle centre of the crowd, however when the Klaxons came on, playing new song "Flashover" the crowd went absolutley insane! So I fought my way back to the side where I could actually have a bit of breathing space!

The set consisted of all the hits from their first album and a few songs that will be on their forthcoming new album, all of it sounded awesome. Flashover is a colossol wall of deranged sound and all the other new songs sounded good too.

I forgot just how many great songs they have done, highlights for me included Gravity's Rainbow and Magick. and the encore of "Alantis to Interzone" was fantastic. Even though sound great on cd, they sounded much better live, these songs were made to be heard live!

The set list:

As Above So Below
Same Space
Gravitys Rainbow
Calm Trees
Golden Skans
Twin Flames
Two Recievers
It's Not Over Yet
Future Memories
Alantis to Interzone

This blog

For those reading this on Facebook- this has been imported (and most of my music blogs are imported) from my blog which is at which is why it's always says at the bottom- view original post.

Anyway I'm debating what to do about my blogging. Currently this blog is about music and not much else- I normally write anything else just directly as a facebook note. I don't know whether I should carry on doing the same- although not all my friends/readers are on facebook that might want to read about more than music, or to just write everything I want to write- primarily music, activism, poetry/writing and occassionally other things on the DJ Moonlight blog as it gets imported onto facebook anyway (even though it sometimes takes ages- as long as a week at times)!
OR to start separate blogs for activism and writing which wouldn't be imported on facebook and mean I'd have 3 blogs to maintain.

Saturday's Alternative Goddess

Today's alternative goddess is Florence Welch of Florence and the Machine!
I loved this band as soon as I heard them only last year. Florence has achieved a lot with her band, despite past difficulties such as seeing her grandfather dying when she was only 10 and her grandmother when she was 14. She used to get in trouble at school for not focusing and randomly singing. She has dylexia, and believes she suffers with OCD, ADD and Insomnia. She has achieved a lot at a young age- she's only twenty three!
I'm yet to see her live, but would love to see this extremely talented woman.
Now, just in case you've been living under a rock, or you like me, enjoy her music- here's some for your enjoyment!

Dog Days are Over

Kiss With a Fist

Rabbit Heart (Raise it Up)

my current favourite- drumming song
