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:
