    IT WAS GREAT HEARING VOODOO PEOPLE and THEIR LAW (in the encore) LIVE!!! I'm still not over Saturday's performance, guys. Anyone who was @ ALEXANDRA PALACE on the 16th (at the front middle of the crowd) is still recovering I know that for sure. I'm packing an energy drink for next time!

    I'm talking about the MAY 16th, SATURDAY NIGHT gig, NOT friday. THAT was the wildest shit ever. The venue speaker set up drowned out the vocals, and the music could've been louder, BUT inbetween the sweaty shoves and kicks the songs were identifiable: the atmosphere was out of control! 8/10 for sound 10/10 Overall. Worth the wait!!

    This new album. I hear lot of layering lot of distortion but with all this FUNKY feelings gone somewhere. I can aprreciate some ideas like tryin change dubstep into something more constant like track DAY IS MY enemy but this funky stuff where IS IT. WTF. I'm not a fan of distortion and too much loudness on tracks i like breathing tracks from Jilted Generation and Fat of the Land. Sound requirements in current era is painfull for true funky stuff.
