Asobi Seksu

What better way to celebrate Halloween than to attend Asobi Seksu's first date of their extensive European tour. Particularly apt, as Asobi's miniature Yuki Chikudate's vocals have always struck me as being rather haunting.

I'd never seen 'Shoegazer' rock in a live context before so had little to no idea what to expect. I say with some regret that I was slightly disappointed. I don't know if it's symptomatic of the genre or if I was just unlucky on this occasion (I fear the former may be true) but Asobi Seksu suffered from a disconcertingly cluttered sound, often resulting in a wall of unfathomable noise which even the most hardened of Asobi fans must have struggled to untangle. The unquestionable highlight of the evening however, was their performance of the staggeringly beautiful Thursday. A climax of my own music collection.

The 2 Days remix posted was the winner Asobi's own Thursday remix competition. A deserved remix if ever there was one.

Ooh, thanks for the mp3's. I am in love with this band for reals. What was the setlist? Did they do "Stay Awake"? That's probably my favorite.
