What a fantastic night!
Cant believe I have'nt seen 808 State play before.
What an opener - a fully steroid injected Donkey of a track, so beefy that the 808 Donkey was moo-ing!
Doctors & Nurses - Brilliant.
Fuzz Nasty -was lively-a tiny bit let down by lack of sound on Grahams playing - with the volume on the Sax kicking in near the end of the track - but even so it sounded great. What is the vocal from? is it a record or Sample? - works really well with the track.
Cobra Bora-Oh yes.
Pacific - one more time!! -just as you thought it was finishing.
Long Orange, In Yer Face and Invader all in a row!! By this time I was dancing like mentalist along with most of the crowd.
Quincy's Lunch-think the 808 drummer should have been paid extra for that - what a great ending (like the weird sounds in the middle as well - what are they - almost like guitar or a record played fast?).
CUBIK - What an ending can still feel the bass now - all those poor little furry animals in the woods with bleeding ears!!.
Didnt recognise the encore as Mondays it sounded different live (with Graham on vocals) it was a great wind -down track. Wasnt expecting an encore - what a treat.
What can I say as a 808 State (live) Virgin I couldnt of asked for a better set - a cracking set list. And a nice up close and personal performance - what a brilliant first experience.
It was nice to bump into everyone that was there - even though it was only for a few minutes. Hope I didnt come across as a bit ignorant, I was in a rush, had to be up for work at 4.45am and didnt want to get stuck behind monged out drivers on thoses roads. Hope to see you all in the future sometime.
To sum up - the 808 Bloom set worked well, sounded fantastic and had the best tracks I could have wished for. It will make me more moany for good quality releases or Downloads of the following live versions: IYF, Fuzz Nasty- essential, and also now Quincy and perhaps the next download on the site could be Donkey Doctor - as that live version rocks. And what would be great would be a good quality CD of a live set. With hopefully the same tracks that were played on Sunday. Was Sunday recorded?
Any way I have had a fantastic Summer Seeing both Daz and Andy Dj set and 808 live all on my doorstep - a huge thankyou to 808!!!!!
