Re: [the boredoms] RFH gig
- it was a funny gig - most of the crowd had obviously
come to see the boredoms but there were also a
smattering of people there to see John Cale
(headlining) - the audience dropped by about a third
during Cale's set which was godawful + pretentious as
hell (i can see why they chucked him out the Velvets).
- Eye sat in front of me + left after about two songs
looking a bit bemused - basically the boredoms should
The boredoms set was around 75 minutes long - the
three drummers - (yoshimi especially) responding to a
single note pitch shifted by Eye.(bit like the fourth
track on rebore vol 0)At first i was a bit
disappointed cos' it sounded a bit proggy but the
sheer rhythmic propulsion of the group was so
infectious you couldn't help being drawn in - there
was a brief hiatus towards the end of the set during
which eye appeared to shout 'shut up' a lot (don't ask
me why) while yoshimi sang out angelically - this
eventually became this huge stomping krautrock anthem
thing which ended the set -- respect to the guys who
got up and danced.
