no earth shows in uk : LUSENET : : One Thread

alas earth cancelled both the uk shows. i hope dylan's ok. the sunn 0))) thrones and boris show in london was awesome tho. if ne1's got a recording let me know. goddamn minidisc recorder was being sketchy so only got joe's soundcheck. joe was awesome and sunn 0))) gave me the worst TTS i've ever had. but they had two model ts one old one new running into a huge sunn cab and a marshall bass amp (there was duck tape over the marshall logo), and a sunn colisium bass head running into an old sixties 2 cone bass speaker. and they wore robes. which worked. yeah.

It was mentioned on the Southern Lord forum that Earth had apparently cancelled ATP also, but there no other word, so I just assumed it wasn't true. Well, it obviously was!

Absolutely gutted about Earth cancelling their ATP show. Nearly ruined my weekend. Anyone know what the reason was, or if they're gonna come back? Went to the Sunn/Thrones/Boris show on the Thursday, which rocked, but Sunn O))) kinda passed me by - just couldn't get into it. They were much better on Saturday night at ATP, probably because the sound was clearer and you could actually hear the riffs. Julian Cope's vocal contributions (basically some droning/chanting) were pretty cool, but didn't add a lot. The audience dug it far more than I thought they would - I'd have expected Sunn to clear the floor given the other music on over the weekend, but they actually drew a pretty big crowd.

Andrew, long time ...

I'm gutted I didn't get to see Sunn and Thrones this time, so I'm quite envious of you!

Cheers for the link, Michael, but I can't get it to work. It demands a username and password, and I can't work out where to sign up for these...

Shit. I forgot that messageboard is private now (basically you have to be registered to view). That messageboard went down for a breif period a few days ago and all of the threads, including that one, were lost unfortunately.

That thread was especially of interest because there was words there from a certain person directly involved with Earth playing ATP.

Basically, Earth decided they weren't going the day before they were meant to leave because they couldn't find their passports or some other lame excuse.
