Bigmouth Strikes Again: Morrissey Live In Belfast!

in Bühne/Live

Music | Bittles‘ Magazine: The music column from the end of the world

In Belfast we are somewhat starved of concerts by people you would actually pay money to go see. Local ›talent‹ and terrible tribute bands seem to make up the majority of the gig-goer’s choice here. And, when someone does decide to make the short trip over the Irish sea it tends to be people like McBusted or Nicki Minaj who aren’t going to excite anyone over the age of twelve. By JOHN BITTLES

Hoxton meets The pains of being pure at heart

in Bittles' Magazine/Live

Bittles‘ Magazine | Concert: The Pains Of being Pure At Heart

As the show is about to start, a swell of expectation rises through the crowd. Then, suddenly a huge eruption of cheers, give a raucous welcome to these five battle hardy purveyors of fine indie rock. Suddenly the warm beer, the lack of room, the idiot in front of me trying desperately to pogo, and the overwhelming stench of sweat matter no more. Because The Pains Of being Pure At Heart have swaggered confidently onto the stage, and their set is about to begin. By JOHN BITTLES

Crap Gigs, And How To Survive Them

We have all been there! You’re at a show and the sound is so bad you can’t discern the music from the feedback. Or you are squeezed into a corner so tightly by an unforgiving and unwashed throng of people that you literally feel like you might die from lack of oxygen. Perhaps you enter the venue like an eager beaver and scan the crowd for friendly faces only to realise straight away that you have made a huge mistake. By JOHN BITTLES

Eine kontrastreiche Eröffnung

in Live

Musik | Katarakt – Festival für experimentelle Musik, 15.-18. Januar

Einen Eindruck vom ersten Tag des Festivals? Der Besuch ist ein Gewinn; man muss auf Kontraste vorbereitet sein. Im Mittelpunkt standen, wie bereits erwähnt, Kompositionen Phill Niblocks, der in der New Yorker Musikszene eine zentrale Figur ist. Gut, solche Formulierung gehört zur üblichen Ankündigungsrhetorik.

Von der Natur der Sache

in Bühne/Live

Musik | Festival: »Katarakt« – Kampnagel Hamburg

Was soll man lange herumreden: In jedem Fall ist es außerordentlich schwierig, experimentelle Musik zu beschreiben. Das liegt in der Natur der Sache. Theoretische Ansätze fruchten da wenig. Es gibt allerdings Leute, die darin einen Vorzug sehen. Doch. Von WOLF SENFF

Mt. Wolf Live at Heaven 12th November 2013.

Bittles‘ Magazine | In Concert: Mt. Wolf Live at Heaven (London)

When an emerging band are as hyped as London four-piece Mt. Wolf are right now it is usually a sign that you are going to hate them with a passion. Most of this is down to the fact that over these last few years here in London town the hype machine has been chugging out faceless crap band after faceless crap band. Yet, early indications suggest that Mt. Wolf may actually warrant all the media and blog attention that has come their way! Vocalist Kate Sproule has a soft, enchanting voice that could melt the strongest of hearts, while the band’s hushed atmospherics sound just as good on a warm Summer’s morning as on a cold November night.

Bittles‘ Magazine | Live Music

Mute Records artist Cold Specks first popped her head into our world in May of last year with the release of debut album I Predict a Graceful Expulsion. An enchanting appearance on Jools Holland also went some way towards announcing the presence of this peculiar talent to the world.
