Two days ago, (this being a day late because yesterday I couldn’t be bothered to get off the sofa) we saw Electralane at the Scala. WOW! My friend in Hamburg, Lauschi, had told me they were good live, but not how good. It’s been a while since I went to a gig. When you get over 40 all your friends seem to have other things to do, like staying in and looking after the kids and to be honest you get the feeling most gigs are hard work, not having the energy you used to have when 20.
They were great. 4 women on stage playing beautiful, loud noise. The support were also loud noise but somehow nowhere near as clever. I gotta say the best gig I’ve been to in 10 years or so.
In the words of my 1 year old niece, Fandabbidozzy, it is the only word she can say and she’s far to young to go to gigs, but that’s what she would have said had she been there. I still have the hissing in my ears 2 days later. What fun.
