Dinosaur Jr, Amager Bio, Copenhagen

in Live Reviews by

On tour in Europe, Dinosaur Jr. visited a cold Copenhagen on a regular Wednesday night. The crowd turned out to be a difficult kind. It took some time, but they eventually woke up. The last couple of weeks of tiring american election controversies, followed closely by the Danish people and the rest of the world, has left people with election hangovers and in desperate need of something positive to hang on to. Dinosaur Jr. visited an almost sold out Amager Bio in Copenhagen. The Grandfathers of grunge have been a major inspiration for bands like Nirvana, Sonic Youth, Pixies and…

Garbage, Vega, Copenhagen

in Live Reviews by

9. Nov, Store Vega, Copenhagen, Denmark: A humble and quiet Garbage gave a very intimate concert: I’ve seen Garbage before. Roskilde Festival (DK) in 1999, Garbage played at the Canopy Stage in front of 50000 people. Despite Manson’s then-drunken Denmark/Sweden mixup, that show was pretty good, and Garbage were in peak fitness condition. Tonight in VEGA, it’s a very different story: About 700 tickets was sold for tonight. A little less than half of the 1550 people capacity, and it was clear already down in the lobby and outside, that we wouldn’t be spending time in any queues here. I didn’t…

Fu Manchu + Electric Elephants, BETA, Copenhagen

in Live Reviews by

Stoner Rock In The Hard End Of The Scale BETA in Copenhagen were greeted with two no-bullshit bands on a sleepy Sunday, and a crowd that was ready to party. As a small appendix to the large Amager Bio venue, the BETA3200 club scene in Copenhagen was packed, this rainy Sunday night. With a maximum capacity of 150 people, the small venue was no bigger than my living room, but somewhat noisier tonight. Our hosts for the evening was the US stoner rock band, Fu Manchu, supported by the Danish quartet Electric Elephants. Electric Elephants “We are travellers from a…

Placebo, VEGA, Copenhagen

in Live Reviews by

14. October 2016: The legendary Brits started their 20-year anniversary tour in Denmark Placebo looks back at their twenty years and eight studio albums, with their “20 Years Of Placebo” tour. A tour which did not start as planned for the Brits: When a band has a greatest hits collection out, the current “A Place For Us To Dream”, the next logical step is to have a tour, maybe play some rarely-played hits. And this is exactly what Placebo set out to do, promising beforehand that they would play for the fans, and play songs they had otherwise sworn they’d never play…

The Cure, Forum, Copenhagen

in Live Reviews by

The Perfect Imperfect The Cure played a full 2 hours and 45 minute set in Forum Copenhagen this friday. 30 years on top of their game and they’ve still got it. Forum (Copenhagen) has always been challenging for the most established bands. The gray concrete block with the tacky neon sign on the front, has been repeatedly guilty of ruining numorous concerts the last 10 years, but not this time. This was some how very different experience, it actually sounded nice. The sound of the venue was far more tight, then I have ever heard it. The Cures sound fitting in…

L7 (US) + support: White Miles (AUT) – Amager Bio, Copenhagen

in Live Reviews by

Much better live than on record – L7 live in Amager Bio, Copenhagen, 31. August 2016: A boring Wednesday evening made much better, by these top-notch rockers. White Miles: The Austria Tyrolese duo makes a huge impact, as the still-sparse crowd gather in front of the stage. Singer/guitarist (and bassist, for that matter – more on that later…) Medina Rekic, and drummer-extraordinaire Hansjörg Loferer, kicks the audience in their faces with their hard-hitting, balls-ripping masterpiece of a show. Their music is so extreme, but at the same time so well executed, and Rekic’s gnarly female voice is violent and extremely…

Violmace + A Man From Jupiter, High Voltage

in Interviews/Live Reviews by

Grungy feel with balls from Violmace in my favorite rock club – 22. July 2016. A Man From Jupiter The young quartet from Denmark is clearly inspired by the Danish band Mew, which they proudly confessed to after the show. Both vocally and tonality, they hit those high and light voices and soft guitars, spiced up with synths. Lyric-wise we are served with darker and more elaborate songs than the inspiration, as if those aren’t out-there enough. This is top notch progressive pop-rock – perhaps not heavy enough for the normal High Voltage crowd, but the songs are catchy and a…

Wolfmother, Vega Copenhagen, Live Review

in Live Reviews by

The Real Deal Rock Band… The Holy love child of Led Zeppelin, Queen, Deep Purple and The Who has come to Earth! The Australian trio Wolfmother has been with us since their debut in 2006, when they released their self-titled album. They have become one of the most Googled names in music, especially since the recent release of their new album, “Victorious”. Since Wolfmother should not need any further introduction if you’re reading this, I can agree with my colleague John Hayhurst’s experience: These guys really are the no-nonsense saviours of rock in 2016. They’ve been called stoner-rock and also…

Attila, Vega Main Hall, Copenhagen

in Live Reviews by

Supporting band so good they should have their own tour! Sometimes a supporting band have so much goin’ for them, that they might as well be on their own tour. Attila from Atlanta, Georgia (US) is such a band. This evening they were visiting VEGA Main Hall in Copenhagen DK, while on tour with Hollywood Undead. Sunglasses wearing frontman Chris “Fronz” Fronzak and his crew of three, Chris Linck on guitar, Kalan Blehm on bass and Sean Heenan on drums, had the hall jumping from the very first note. Girls were screamin’, guys were head-bangin’, Attila connected to all! There was smoke, there was sweat,…

Biters + Libido Overdrive, High Voltage, Copenhagen

in Live Reviews by

High Voltage Rock Club, Copenhagen, Denmark If you have ever visited the High Voltage Rock Club in Copenhagen, then you know the place is just like your old lady. It has intimacy and presence, but at the same can be the sleaziest seducer around. This night was no different, and Biters from Atlanta, USA, had taken a small detour from the 2016 Kerrang Winter Tour and its big stages, and paid my favourite club a visit. Biters was supported by local Danish band, Libido Overdrive, who laid the club down flat with their straight out of the 80’s hair-heavy, lead singer Mikkel Løkke makes…
