I mainly went down to London to see Deathboy live again who were supporting Project Pitchfork at Islington Academy and thought it was a good opportunity to see PP live (which I hadn't) and take Deviant UK and Dutch Order as a bonus.

Cambridge Bus Syndrome meant I missed the train I wanted to take and came in halfway through Dutch Order's set. They weren't quite my thing but fun and techically sound.

Deathboy were next and they rocked their (and our) little socks off, especially considering they hadn't played live for something like three years. They played a great section of their repertoire from Cheap Shot to tracks from CogRock (which is free to download). The band very obviously enjoyed themselves and the audience went for it, too.
[livejournal.com profile] jasontheknight had organised a photo pass for me and I tried my best to fight against the venue's backlighting. (they actually do have white front lights but never use them :o()

Deviant UK were the surprise for me. I hadn't seen them live and hadn't been impressed with their recorded stuff but they're really powerful and fun live. The frontman stomps over the stage like a madman and really brings the thing alive. Excellent stuff.

And then, Project Pitchfork, one of the bands that have been active for quite a while but I hadn't had a chance to see live and don't know that well, either. I have a few tracks on compilations but actually none of their albums, something I need to change, I think.
They absolutely killed on stage, despite only the frontman being really active on stage with two static synths and a drummer (who was really going for it), their act felt really organic and was a lot of fun. The audience were really going for it, too, the majority were dancing and I think that impressed the band, too. I'm not sure but this might have been the first drum solo I've seen an industrial/EBM band do. It was ace.

Three photos for now, more to come:

The glorious and irreverent [livejournal.com profile] deathboy has a new (and rather groovy) track available for download. Get it while it's hot!

1 All you lovers of electronic music should check out his album Beautiful Skies (free download). Mostly mellow choons, perfect for summer.
2 He's also standing for the LJ Advisory Board so give him your support!

As you can see, there was basically no light whatsoever, easily the worst set lit of the whole event which turned the photo pit into the Pit of Despair™.

More of I Am Immune and Chaos Engine next week, the rest will move to the back of my photo backlog.

Main reason for me to actually go through the photos was that I was worried there was damage to the camera or photos on the card that was in the camera at the time. I did have read errors on five Suicide Commando pics but that's not important as the ones I really wanted are fine. No preview of Suicide Commando because I couldn't be bothered. :oÞ

I have decided that Something is my favourite track on End of an Error. It's just so earwormy and I want the main synthline as a ringtone...
That said, everything else on that album is equally superb. I'm really looking forward to seeing them on Sunday at BC. :o)

Postman seems to have been seriously delayed this morning because when I checked on my washing an hour ago, there was a jiffy bag from [livejournal.com profile] lineoutrecords on the doormat. Said jiffy bag contained DeathBoy's new album, End of an Error which is now on repeat on my stereo. A fine blend of guitars, breakbeats, synth/electronics and vocals.
It's fun, bouncy and produced very well indeed. If they bring it across live (and I have no doubt they will), Black Celebration should be worth attending for their set alone. Really looking forward to it now.
