AIDS Wolf, Mouthus and Velvet Chrome at Casa Del Popolo, Montreal 13/02/10

I went to Montreal for this show and it was super sweet. I don't really remember that much of Velvet Chrome to be honest, I do recall enjoying the last song very much though. At first I couldn't really dig Mouthus at all because they sounded like a less refined version of The Dead C, lots of guitar noise and not enough pedal noise, and not that I know the first thing about writing about music but I felt like there wasn't enough repetition behind the noise, so there wasn't really anything to grab onto. But that kind of came in the middle foray into sound and I began to enjoy it a lot more. I ended up buying their split with Yellow Swans the next day too, so I guess it lasted. AIDS Wolf were excellent, even though they had some technical fuck-up that lasted a bit less than 10 minutes, it was full of energy and they swung straight back into it. There are so many photos of them because they were so fucking good, I tried my hardest to cull too!

I still can't get the formatting for this crap right, so please, click for actual photo!

Back to the Beach w/ KOKOMO PUNX and MOTHER'S CHILDREN at Babylon Nightclub, 06/02/10

Beach-themed party in -10 degrees when it is actually 30 degrees at home in Sydney was kind of cruel. But people came rockin' hawaiian shirts and shorts and got down to the sweet tunes of 70s surf-punk and 60s girl group numbers; there was even punch and a barber who I got a free fringe cut from (why not). Kokomo Punx were pretty bangin' - they played instrumental versions of all those familiar 70s songs (don't ask me to name them) and had a horn section (one dude) hidden in the corner who probably made the whole thing. Mother's Children were kind of fun but I got distracted by the amazing film being projected behind them (I think it was Beach Party?). More back-up vocals please.
Photos aren't very good, but here are some anyway.
