32 Years Ago: CHRISTIAN DEATH live in Amsterdam

Live at Melkweg, Amsterdam on this day in 1984. A fairly good quality recording, bootlegged in 1989 as Catastrophe Ballet Live.
This was towards the end of their fragmented European tour. The first time playing outside the US. They travelled to Paris 21 February, London’s Batcave and elsewhere in Europe; ending up broke in Berlin by July.

This recording includes the song Theatre of Pain which never made it to a studio album (ff to about 13:30). Musically very close to Mysterium Iniquitatis from Only Theatre of Pain!

Christian Death CDs / Christian Death DVDs

Some of the songs from this gig appear on the official Anthology of Live Bootlegs compilation (1990).

Daily Noise: Toil – Moth with Fractured Wings

Official video for the opening song on TOIL‘s mini-CD Lullabies for Insects. The MCD followed their two Meurtre Noir demos released in the mid-2000’s. Always an interesting band, on Lullabies they explored post-punk further than before – including a CURE cover.
Lurker plays all instruments in TOIL but contributed drums to many other bands including VROKLOK, RAW HATRED and SATANIC FUNERAL. Virginian label (also where TOIL are based) Rusty Axe released Lullabies in 2009.

Filmed by Voices Drowned by Helvetica. As with the CD’s memorable and colourful booklet, the video uses close ups of various insects: a millipede, daddy longlegs, cicada, and cicada killer wasp.

Hateful Abandon - LIARS/BASTARDS

Cvlt Nation Review Hateful Abandon – LIARS/BASTARDS

Read the complete review here.

It’s track 2, “Culprit,” that may be my favorite on the LP. Again there’s a militaristic feel coupled with atmospheric, gloomy keyboards, and swirling, slashing postpunk guitar sounds that I think characterizes a lot of HA’s best stuff. One thing that cannot be over-emphasized is the incredible job that Swine’s Tom has done on the drumming. Live drumming mixed with programmed drum machines (or at least that’s how it sounds to me) is combined with the percussive effects of old-school industrial sounds: Things like chains clinking, oil drums being pounded, metal scraping against metal, etc. The element of experimentation that drove bands like Savage Republic and Einsterzende Neubauten to make music is on display on much of HA’s work.
