Einsturzende Neubauten, Part the second
Back at home, having endured a train journey that left Euston at 11:40 and arrived at 02:10. I'm sure at times it felt like I could walk faster...

Anyway, I slept most of the way fortunately, but spent a little time cutting photos, and because I'm so keen and bouncy here are three. Not necessarily the best three, but a fair three...

All taken with Sigma 24-70mm or Sigma 20mm. I had the sense to put the 20mm in the pocket of my combats before the crowd got too busy and managed to change back and forth on the fly with only minimum bother - much to my surprise.

Current Mood: happy happy

Great pictures! Are those digital or were you up till stupid o'clock developing and scanning?

(Hello, btw, childeric pointed me in this direction!)

Hello :-) All digital - the late-night-London-gig-workflow involves also carrying a laptop with me and falling asleep on it on train downloading photos and going Photoshop-crazy on the train.

And thanks - be sure to check out the rest of the site if you get bored/insomnia/etc. See you at Whitby perhaps!

Thanks - I was very happy. I think it captures Blixa really well - and a rare moment when he's not screaming into the mic!

Considering the adverse conditions is little short of a bloody miracle.

Glad you like them! Have you browsed the site and seen my Nick Cave pictures? - From your LJ you seem to be a fan.

Enthusiastic amateur!

Whereabouts in Germany do you live? I'm quite jealous of the music and bands that tend to play continental europe and never make it over to the UK.

I've heard of Leipzig (who on the alternative scene hasn't?!). I just visit London too - and live in the Midlands. At least as a German speaker you can understand the lyrics of Neubauten, Rammstein, Ooomph! etc. - I've been trying to learn a bit of German for solely that reason!

Normally I get in front of the barriers with press contacts (even though I rarely get paid) at the larger gigs. Though this Neubauten show didn't have any barriers which made it tougher.

I've talked about going to WGT next year - so may be in the Neighbourhood ;-)

Because I don't understand the language, the sounds of the lyrics are much more important than the words. There's a lot of interpretation that goes on - but it's much more "voice as instrument" than "voice as method of delivering lyrics" if that makes sense.

I had this also this week seeing Dead Can Dance, where many of the lyrics are in a made-up language.

Mind if I add your LJ? I'd like to stay in touch, partly if I do ever get to Leipzig, and partly to get help with my german homework ;-)
