Rock 'n' Roll BS [Oct. 5th, 2008|12:29 pm]

I so hate encores... I wish bands would write it into the set and stop farting around with all the going on and off stage. It is more about getting the audience to massage over inflated egos than giving the punter something extra.

Cabaret Voltaire never did encores!... I trace their downfall to three things... one of them was starting to do encores.

Yeah it's worth the ticket price to have a band fart around back stage for 15 minutes.

Most bars are closed when the encores happen, their prices are so extortionate that you can't afford one anyway, it is so late you have to run to get the last tube or your cab is waiting and, as in the case of Ministry, the only songs you wanted to hear are possibly held back until the encore!
Leaving the amps on means, you are coming back on, I will not stand there and clap for 15 mins just to have them back on stage for the second part of the set.
On the subject of clapping. Any mong who stands on stage and tries to get the crowd to clap along with the rhythm should simply remeber that that was the stage presence of "Black Lace" playing Agado.
So, let's see what happens at Emilie Autumn tonight!!!
