Alec Empire

I’m not one for music reviews unless pushed, but I saw Alec Empire live last weekend, and he was phenomenal. I rarely see bands whose music I don’t know inside out, but there’s something about the energy of his shows, that makes him so enjoyable live – and it is he himself – very minimal lighting, no spectacle, just great performance. Nic Endo was working the machines again, and Patrick Wolf made a cameo, singing both Alec Empire songs and his own Vultures.

Support came from a very Crystal-castles-esque (right down to the annoying vocalist) band, and Modulate, who are a bit of a run-of-the-mill EBM band, but exciting and catchy enough for me to make their Detonation album my first Modulate - Detonation purchase.
