It was better than I had anticipated. They had all manner of fantastic toys on stage, which you may just be able to make out in this camera phone pic. A bulldozer scoop full of metal pipes, which they let fall periodically. A metal slinky stretched out on a pole and played with a wire brush. A vibrator as a replacement for a guitar pick. And of course, Blixa's magnificent primal shriek.

ooh. i nearly went to see them once. they were going to play Rock City in Nottingham, but the gig was moved from the main hall to the basement and the so band pulled out because there wouldn't have been enough room on the stage for all their equipment. i've heard none of their stuff at all, but i was looking forward to what promised to be an interesting experience. oh well.

I'm sure they'll be back. They're one of those bands that just won't quit. 27 years and counting!

A vibrator as a replacement for a guitar pick.

Oh man, that reminds me of one of my recording projects in university where my best friend and I laid sheet metal over half a grand piano's strings and she played the keys while I played the other strings with a vibrator. I knew I should have sent EN a copy of that; I could have toured as backup!
