Im Fresh from seeing SKINNY PUPPY last night in manchester, and it was a blinder!
I saw them last year, and it was mega- this time did not dissapoint.
Slight change in the live setup, i.e no live guitarist, but hey, they dont need it.
they have a live drummer, on an accustic kit, with some vdrums, of course kEvin kEy on samplers, synths using midi, and logic, and OGRE, on the vocals.
the set was tight, except one noticeable hiccup, with logic, but that was covered up by a vocal/fx improv by ogre with some drums.
seeing a live setup like that reminds me how invigorating it can be to be in a band. dont get me wrong, i love playing as a solo artist, but having someone think of say- synths, and you think of drums etc can become very creative.
But maybee the best part was the support-OTTO VON SCHIRACH! now ive been following otto (and puppy for that matter ) for a while now, and have heard how broad and frankly amazing his sound can be, but take it from me, if you EVER…EVER get the chance to see him, DO IT.
Wuth his laptop and mic he lounched a brutal assault on Manchester. With a giant alien moss creature with banana teeth to boot.
It would be interesting to hear from anyone else who saw them on this tour.
just looking for somthing.
