Another day of chiptunes and lo-fi music!
Men of Mega
Had a great time, chatting with so many of the acts [including managing to get the Equinoxe guy to busk. He made about £6…]
The Friday of the chiptune festival: SuperByte Festival
Here we have Alone, The VIRUS Empire, Theremin Hero, Maskinoperatör, Mega Ran and zabutom
Sadly, I missed the end of the night due to being a tired bunny…
Sunday was kicked off bright and early by Syd.31‘s shouty shouty punkdustrial sounds. And a cover of Mr. Vain…
Highly anticipated Mr.Kitty followed up, for what I can best describe as an intimate set.
Last minute replacement ESA bombarded the senses, before German synthpop Solar Fake took to the stage.
I personally enjoyed Ashbury Heights, despite not knowing much of their stuff.
Finally, crowd favourites of VNV Nation headlined the weekend.
Memorable moments being “Are you licking the sweat off that woman’s head? UGH!”
The second day of INFEST 2014 kicked off with The Ladder
Followed up by Be My Enemy, with a brilliant set.
Xenturion Prime [introduced by a toga party] brought us back to synth goodness
Only managed a single shot of Legend unfortunately [who appeared to be a firm festival favourite], and none of Architect.
Headliners for the night were my personal festival highlight: Juno-Reactor
The opening night of Infest 2014 was busy!
Opening with Dreams Divide, who – despite initial lighting difficulties were very enjoyable.
Acucrack followed on.
Next up was the Cyanotic and Rabbit Junk set [termed Cyajunk]
And Haujobb nailed it for the night
So, I moved to Manchester in July. And on the day I moved, Factory Acts released their EP (Thirst) on AnalogueTrash Records.
They were supported by The Webb and tigerside
I decided I may as well see what the Manchester life was like for shooting gigs…
AnalogueTrash came to Glasgow, bringing Deviant UK, Method Cell and CYFERDYNE with them, to meet up with Advance.
And what a night it was.
The Saturday of Resistanz – International Industrial Music Festival
Headlined by Assemblage 23
Kicking off the day with iszoloscope
Followed by The ‘unable to stand still’ .invalid, Nitronoise, And the God Module replacements of Memmaker
After a small interlude, the “we were expecting it to be them” secret band hit the stage: Faderhead!
Organ Donors then took the stage for a very crowd pleasing set, and onto more electro with CYBERPUNKERS
Headlined by Straftanz for their last ever show.
The festival started off with Incubite, and on to WormZ for some electro.
Chrom followed with some more damn good synthy numbers.
And Modulate knocked the crowd for six by what many describe as their best show to date.
Deviant UK headlined an AnalogueTrash event in Manchester’s Zoo night club.
Supported by Advance for their first English gig, as well as promoting their brand new album, Cyferdyne and Method Cell
Ultimately, not the best gig night I’ve shot – Too many focusing issues for me, in an environment I wasn’t used to.
So, only managed a couple of Deviant shots.
