    Oh sweet, I'll have a look. I wonder how they'll compare to the ones on sale at the show.

    Cool, I should be able to recognise you! :)

    here's my rundown.....

    ....was amazed to get to the gig by 7:30pm (thought i'd get there late cause i finished work at 6pm! n is why i told Rob i'd just see him in the venue), got in line, didn't see ya around Rob :(....

    ...cause i was in so early went straight to the stage, was on the right hand side infront of the right hand side guitarist in each band...ok first 2 bands weren't that great really really shit mix, couldn't make out any guitar notes, n wasn't really into either singers (i guess cause i knew Bill Steer was coming up so for this night my expectations for death vox were EXTREMELY high :p )....

    ...noticed the 2nd bands guitarist on the left hand side plays a Charvel Model 4, i play a Model 6, mine's the bell's n whistles version n far better :p, just thought i'd add that bit lol.....


    ....as Carcass was starting i could see Bill Steer just left off stage so i go to this ranga kid to the right of me "hey its Bill Steer" n he sez in this arrogant tone "i know", then i go to these 2 cool asian kids to my left n go "Hey its Bill Steer" and they were like "FUCK YEAHHHH" seemed like really cool dudes...anyway Carcass starts so the crowd all comes forward n i start to get crushed, eventually get squeezed out of my spot from the crush where im now pushing into that ranga, felt bad bout it so i decided to depart to a clearer space around teh back, NOW THIS IS WHERE IT GETS EXCITING, had to FORCE myself thru the crowd as they were so packed into each other, that i must've accidently pushed ova this drunken twat well either he was drunk or just a twat/wanker/fuckface he gets pissed so pushes me in the back, i turn around literally ready to punch him in the face, look at him, noticed he's quite a distance away n we're both 2 packed from the crowd so i just laugh at his face n keep walking, but man wat a tosser!


    Carcass's sound was SUPERB you could hear EVERYTHING! quite a drastic change from teh first 2 bands where u couldn't make out a single solo, with Carcass you could hear EVERY NOTE so it was really good, Bill Steer made quite a few jokes bout Australia n etc n how he's got family out here....played a fair bit off Necroticism and some off Heartwork, was a nice set.

    too bad the crowd ruined it for me, like serious its not the fucking beatles u don't have to fucking touch the band to enjoy the god damn show! meh they were mostly kids so i guess they'll never learn.

    also i thought i'd bring up that the Carcass tour shirts which were $35 i think were TERRIBLE, all they had on em was the name CARCASS on the front in the Carcass font, then the tour dates n cities on the back in Carcass font, no cool graphics or anything, plus they were white :S white metal shirts don't work :|

    so Rob if ur after a Carcass shirt like i said go to Smoke Dreams they got awesome as ones going for $40-45.

    Carcass were excellent last night. The sound wasn't as good where I was on the floor, but it improved after the first couple of songs. My ears are ringing like fuck, so it must have been loud. The set was the same as all the recent ones they've played, which was fine by me. I would have had a better view and better sound if I'd stood back a bit and observed, but I'd been waiting 15 years, so wanted to rock out on the floor. The place was flipping packed. It was sold out, which was excellent.

    I was at the pub across the road sinking pints until about 9pm or so. Got there near the end of Terrorust's set. I saw them once before and wasn't overly impressed, so didn't care if I missed them. You must have just seen one variety of shirt, Terry. I got a black shortsleeve and another of the longsleeve variety, which I'm pretty happy with. I'll check out Smoke Dreams though.

    I met Mike Amott briefly out the back after waiting frigging ages. Got a photo and he signed Heartwork and Necroticism. I didn't get home till 3am, which was kinda crap, given I had to start work at 9.

    thats cool u met Mike, i had to leave straight once the gig ended to get the last tram home, spoke to a Peruvian dude on teh tram who went to the gig, he's a tattooist in brunswick st, told him to check out some cricket one dayers at the mcg whilst he's here, although he said he's been here for 6 years so far :p

    Did you have too many Bill Steers (beers)? :)

    I saw that white shirt. Not fantastic! Yeah I was at the Exford. It was full of metalheads!

    You'd think that dude might have checked out some cricket by now if he was keen!

    The Exford is great before and after gigs at Billboard. I wasnt able to go to Carcass sadly, I am currently swamped down with uni assignments and have pretty much been chained to my PC for the last 4 days, only moving to go to the fridge, work, the library and bed. :(

    Dang, that's bad luck! Maybe they'll return if they stay together?

    here's what my mate thought Carcass was ok. They played Genital grinder, reek, and exhumed, WITH BILL STEER SINGING.. Awesome. The rest was same as last time they played plus one swan song track

    It would've been great to see Bill Steer gurggling his way through those songs but I don't regret not going, money is just too tight atm. They had their chance to impress me and they failed - they were too busy being sell outs bwwaahahaha!

    It'll be interesting to see what becomes of Carcass when the tour is over.

    Bill seemed a bit vague about that when I spoke to him. He said their main inspiration at the moment is to raise a bit of cash for Ken Owen and have a bit of fun.

    Fingers crossed they continue. If they manage to stay together long enough to record an album they'll probably stick around for a while. Hopefully Bill's enjoying it, for he was the one who needed a lot of convincing to reform.

    They haven't ruled out an album, which is interesting.
