UK 1×05 – Mono live @ Scala

First concert I got to see in London and it’s been more than 4 months since I saw any concerts at all, so it felt quite fresh. It EASILY counts as the best one I’ve ever been to.

The supporting act were Jesu, a drone/post-rock/metal/shoegaze band. They were ok. Too loud if you ask me. Sure, loud is what you’d expect from a concert. But not a full hour of continuous loud, although that’s how drone is supposed to be – continuous, I mean. Still good tho… If you’re going to listen to anything they made, you might as well start with the self-titled album.

Then, the ‘good’ turned to ‘not really good, eh?’ when Mono (post-rock/instrumental) came onstage. They started the show with ‘Yearning’ off last year’s ‘You Are There‘. I managed to shoot it, but had to split it cause of some limitations on YouTube. The clip does not really do them justice, but it still came out good…

I especially liked their japanese or jazzy moments, which were really nicely spread throughout the show. I guess any album of theirs is good, but I didn’t see them being nearly as good as they were live.

Pretty much <@_@>

And, traditionally, I went backstage to chat with the band. And they were pretty damn nice too.


PS: Mono is not Mogwai.
