The Null Device
Night Terrors, Ninetynine, La Scimmia, Grey Daturas
As the last entry suggested, I went to the RMIT film department stolen-gear fund-raising show
at the Corner tonight; or at least to part of it. First up I saw part of
The Night Terrors' set; they didn't have the trademark fluoro lights, but did do a set of their usual unrelenting onslaught of grinding bass guitar, buzzsaw synths and theremin, like some mutant gothic hot-rodders from hell. Or about as metal as you can get without being Metal (or using guitars), as the case may be. (Though the frontman could probably pass for a Scandinavian metalhead.)
Ninetynine played a set with lots of energy, doing many old songs (starting with Wöekenender and ending with Polar Angle), and a few newer numbers (though the triptych they started their other shows with was there only in part).
Then came La Scimmia, who played various brooding minor-key things (mostly instrumentals, apart from one anti-US rant at the start).
The Grey Daturas then played a half-hour set consisting of sheets of guitar feedback, with drums kicking in in the middle.
I left shortly after George W. Bush started playing as they seemed like fairly uninteresting pounding-drums-guitar-riffs-and-screaming hardcore punk.
