and it was
right from the very first song, just pure energy, couldn't stand still. Although people in the crowd were mostly holding their drinks, i guess a few felt the same way i did.
His set was like 30 minutes long. After him, a guy played some speedcore but it felt so empty ; he was trying to keep it up acting silly (christmas hat, light sticks, bubble pistol, silly attitude) ; but sometimes his arrangements just fell flat.
Ruby my dear wasn't doing much, mostly looked like he was checking his mix and taking sips off his beer. But his music was ten times what the other guy did.
I went to tell him how much he matters and left a bit later.
30 min was indeed a bit short but it was very intense.
His setup was very simple, he only had a laptop and a kind of midi controller/mixer.
Didn't get around to see what his screen looked like, but i think he runs on Live
This is what I hate about living in Sweden. Where are all the breakcore/glitch/experimental gigs at? DAMNIT.
Invite them! I had some of the Ad Noiseam-guys play in Aalborg (of all places..) back last august. No-one came, because people'd rather hear shit music, but they came, played and at least my girlfriend and I gave them the idea that some of us appreciated it.
Regarding Ruby My Dear - sounds like good stuff. I have full confidence in that he'll release some good stuff in the future as well.
