IAMX – I’m thrilled, I’m really thrilled! I was at a lot of concerts this year, but I think this one was one of the best. Or maybe the best? It was just perfect – the location, the sound, the dark stage with the restrained lights, the songs, the audience.
First the location: I wasn’t before in this club, because the music there is normally not mine. A lot of Jazz or Electronic concerts, which isn’t my music taste. So it was the first time that I was there. It’s a really cool club. At the day you don’t see it, because the entrance isn’t really visible – you just see the logo at the ground. In the evening the entrance is raised and you can reach the underground. It’s made with a lot of concrete and wood, round and so it’s a very special atmosphere. It’s a pity that there aren’t not more concerts for our scene.
IAMX didn’t had a support band, so the first tone of „I Come With Knives“ started. It was the perfect first song. I was a bit surprised about the light. The stage was during the concert nearly dark, although there was a lot of light. But this was indirect and there were nearly no spots on Chris or the other band mates. But it works really good with the dark atmosphere during the whole concert, especially because a lot of the songs fits to this. The setlist was perfect, they played older songs as well as the songs of the actual album. Especially during „Happiness“ was the stage very dark, perfect for this song. The bass at „After Every Party I Die“ went under the skin and the „drum-battle“ between Chris and Janine during „Tear Garden“ was just great! The audience was also good, they celebrated the band and also themselves. All in all was it a perfect concert.
I Come With Knives – The Alternative – Happiness – Mercy – No Maker Made Me – Volatile Times – Tear Garden – Oh Cruel Darkness Embrace Me – Spit It Out – Bernadette – Surrender – After Every Party I Die – Aphrodisiac – Your Joy Is My Low – Bring Me Back A Dog – Kiss & Swallow – I Am Terrified
I really like mashups and sometimes I find some really cool stuff at SoundCloud or Youtube. And because I write here often about music, I think it’s a good idea to present from time to time a mashup.
Through a coincidence I found at SoundCloud a very cool mashup – „Shut Up And Run“, made by Bynar. The sources of this track are Marilyn Manson with „This Is The New Shit (Acapella)“, The Prodigy with „Run With The Wolves“ and Mindless Self Indulgence with „Shut Me Up (VNV Nation 1200 XL Mix)“. I really love this track and you should listen to it. And if you like it, you should also listen to other tracks of Bynar, for example „Sacred Truth“.

Seit dem Auftritt von Telemark auf dem NCN sind schon 2 Wochen vergangen. Irgendwie kommt es mir auf der einen Seite so vor, als wäre es erst gestern gewesen, auf der anderen Seite kann ich es kaum abwarten, das nächste Konzert von ihnen zu sehen. Das dauert aber noch eine Weile. Bis dahin bleiben nur die Videos, in diesem Fall hier das Video von den letzten beiden Songs Knives und The Looking Glass.
Heute wurde auch im Online-Magazin Peek-A-Boo ein Interview mit Elliott veröffentlicht. Es freut mich riesig, dass das geklappt hat und hoffentlich wird es noch weitere Interviews und Berichte geben, damit mehr Leute auf diese Band aufmerksam werden.
Und noch was in eigener Sache:
Um das Ganze jetzt doch internationaler zu machen, habe ich beschlossen, dass ich in Zukunft doch in Englisch schreiben werde. Ab und zu wird sich sicher noch mal das ein oder andere Posting in Deutsch dazwischen schmuggeln, aber langfristig werde ich dann doch auf Englisch weiterschreiben. Sind dann zwar wahrscheinlich einige Fehler drin, denn so gut ist mein Englisch jetzt auch nicht, aber was soll’s. Man wird mich schon verstehen und ansonsten kann man ja nachfragen.
Since the gig of Telemark on the NCN already 2 weeks have passed. Somehow on one side it seems to me like it was only yesterday, on the other hand I can not wait to see the next concert of them. But this will take a while. Until then, remain only the videos, in this case here the video of the last two songs Knives and The Looking Glass.
Today an interview with Elliott was also published in the online magazine Peek-A-Boo. I am thrilled that it worked and hopefully there will be more interviews and reports, so that more people pay attention to this band.
And one more thing in my own authority:
To make the whole thing more international, I’ve decided that I will write in English in the future. Every now and then I’ll smuggle one or the other German Posting in between, but in the long term I will continue to write in English. Indeed probably some mistakes will be in there, because my English is not so good, but what the heck. I think the people will understand me and otherwise they can ask.
