Artefact

New Order / ACR / Factory Floor. Sunday night at The Warehouse Project and a massive treat.

I managed to score a last minute guestie and was therefore able to avail myself of a free cloakroom and an acceptable carsy.

(Hence no tickets in the image - instead I saved out cloakroom chitties!)

Factory Floor were ace - no drummer for this set, just the pair of them plus modular synths and drum machines. Powerful, crisp, minimal, satisfyingly menacing, sub bass like a sock in the kidneys.

ACR were ACR. As dubby and druggy as ever. It's all about Donald and Denise for me.

DJ Tin Tin played some great stuff: LFO and the Chems, etc, but there were also some regrettable mash-ups and general baboonery.

Against the odds my crew and I managed to squeeze on to the front row for New Order (Store Street is terrible view-wise - if you're not at the front, you might as well go home) and it was well worth it. The current material sounded outrageously good - gone are the lumpen guitars and wan melodies, replaced by piano stabs and strings that aim straight for the euphoric/melancholy pop jugular.

I nearly had an orgasm. And, readers! I was sober. (Relatively).
