Dalston Victoria, London, July 28th


These couple of chookies left the touring entourage waiting for nealy 2hours after the gig as they waited to share their wee bbq fish.  Didnt offer to buy a round, then finally when the fish arrived and they had it too take away they dissapeared enroute to the bus stop to eat it, or so they claim, i reckon they were inspecting each others belly buttons.  fail.  Usurper set hence forth gets 0/10.  Fuds.

MURPHY/HARRISON... scoffing albino and heavy biscuit tip.  Great tape wooze emerged into skittering third eye mess.   Don't ever put beats behind it, dudes.

Blood Stereo set was all just a warm up for the melodica moonshine meltdown,, its the way to go.
Pengo was a tough out,,, hitting many right spots, the band sure did work up an appetite, especially The Finkster.
the Gaaah gas between sets is starting to hot up, Blood Stereo even got a stylophone intro, intrigued to see what more herbage will do to the pineal gland of master mumble.

Off to Sheffield today, first day in the van.  Anyone for Hummus?

BRIGHTON, Saturday July 27th.

The papered snash fart of a first night of the tour...

Infinite Gaaah was confused on his roll for the tour,, total headscratch.. " just ramble on!" i said.  As herbs are ingested on the road then his inner compere will burst forth and enlighten brains.

Theatrical confusion of Duncan Harrison, wild tape wonk with occasional oration. "started off like Howard Steltzer then just took it up a level.".  Grody goodness.

We (blood stereo) played a set of improvised grape induced good feelings, tapes, objects and blab with a"thrilling" bike horn vs trumpet mouth piece finale. Swaying span.

Usurpers private jet was late to land,, so next up would be the big bellied beast of Pengo, Rochesters finest export since the garbage plate (ie: never really got exported).  The classic sound was dragged out with a heavy Finkbeiner curry stained guitar sound up front..  Nuuj on his orange box of magic elctronic wha? and Schoen on tape glump, then some fine vein splitting sax wail before the vocal hoodoo kicked in.. the rest my friends is a bit hazy.. ouch.  Crious comrades.

Usurpers set is vague,,, talk of animals, jungle, giraffes, mosquitoes... scraping, popping, fake hand shenanigans.

Elkka advised the audience to not take the brown acid.

this afternoon we hit London, the Dalston Victoria, where the beers are nigerian and the fish are big and barbequed.

" wonderful sonic landscapes in the magic scout hut ~ the ticking & whispering of Blood Stereo, the apocalyptic rain dance of Pengo ~ axe, sax and a large white balloon..." - Michael Kemp

When the world was in darkness and darkness was ignorance and ignorance was contentment... along came enlightenment.
With enlightenment came disenchantment and disenchantment was a poor distraction... and now we long for a distraction.
So the world requires distraction as distraction provides contentment and contentment was ignorance... along came Gaaah.
Like most living myths and like most leaders living or dead our new guru could likely be described as a fibber, a gobshite or a Boaby Liar, but if we insist on having our days occupied then why not kill time dead with the guff and half-truths professed by an entertainer engendered of inconsequence?
Tom Roberts The Infinite Gaaah prescribes a way of life variously referred to as "lunkism", "neo-ludditism", "goof", "OUT", "roughage", "wrong" and "the knacker's yard" by both it's disciples and detractors, but all of the aforementioned read awfy like "a real hoot" to this non-believer.
The Infinite Gaaah will deliver sermons across two countries in the week of July 27th 'til August 4th 2013 and has enlisted the services of some of his flock: from the Brighton order of Chocolate Monks come profoundly Southern fried psalmists Blood Stereo, Edinburgh envoys Usurper shall perform rituals devoid of symbolic value and missionaries from the congregation of psychedelic toxicity in Rochester, USA Pengo will be at the front of the herd preaching the good and gone grace of Gaaah.
Not to be confused with a busload of artists touring "avant-garde" sounds, this is a mobile group immolation highlighting the inherently uninteresting proposition of existence while offering an amusement arcade's worth of worthlessness soundtracked by the oldest music there is.
