Notes From the Output/DFA party:
Roll in sort of early. An absolutely generic electropop band is on, complete with an Aryan Debbie Harry wannabe. Turns out her name is Ilsa or something of the sort and she's wearing silver pants that may as well have been Daniel Poole circa 92. In retrospect this was a warning sign.
So when did Love and Rockets change their name to Colder? A bit darker, more textured and apparently they now claim to be French. Still as mediocre as ever though, go read the comics they are brilliant.
Downstairs was better. First up good shit I've never heard before, mixed badly (James Murphy?). Rhythmic and textured, need to hear more to describe properly. Then came somewhat familiar stuff, mixed well (Trevor Jackson aka Playgroup?). DJ drops Higher State of Consciousness, crowd goes bananas. With chocolate sause. Almost made me want to dig out the oversized raver jeans from the closet. Luckily for the world I don't have a closet.
The rest of night was dark and northern European. I think I'll be passing on the Belgium New Beat revival, thank you.
