The Null Device
I just came back from the Punters Club where I saw Ninetynine. They were
great; equal parts spiky guitar riffs, groovy rhythms, xylophones and
yummy Casiotone goodness. They played mostly short, intense pop songs, with
frantic amounts of energy, yet tight, funky grooves like a visitation from
Grudnuk. One highlight was a punk-pop song they did in Arabic, with the
drummer (a guy who looked somewhere between Robert Smith and
Michael Hutchence's character in Dogs In Space
) getting up and singing,
with his manic energy. All in all, an intense performance.
(I didn't see the support bands, as I went to the Empress before that to
see Sir and The Dumb Earth.)
(I saw Ninetynine before, many years ago (when they were supporting The Paradise Motel; that's how long ago), but not for some time until now.)
Speaking of live bands, Prop are
playing tomorrow night at Pony; they should be very much worth seeing.
