I've been pretty keen to see these guys for quite some time, especially as I was unable to make it to any performances on their 2008 tour. Well, they got announced for the 2012 BDO and as soon as this sideshow was announced I bought myself a ticket. And they totally lived up to my very high expectations. I wish I'd gotten to see them with Tyondai, but this was still a fucking incredible show. Naturally, it was almost all Gloss Drop songs but that was my second-favourite album of 2011 so who's complaining? The way the vocalists were present on the screen was a cool touch, and I particularly dug the way they extended several songs. Sundome was jaw-dropping. The only real negative about the gig itself was the technical difficulties Ian had during My Machines, but what can you do? And the sound on this recording isn't so great. But ahh well. Fantastic gig!
