I'm seeing them on Wednesday! Which is technically tomorrow. It's half past 3am here. I can't wait!
boring as hell
You Melbourne folks do realise there's an extra show tonight (Tuesday)? Not specifically under the SunnO))) name, but close enough. See: http://www.ideologic.org/DLpublic/080507.jpg
Would it help if they wore some arm-warmers, black lipstick and spiked collars?
Damnit! I never knew that. I'd go, but too much work to do at the moment =(
I like some of Boris' more atmospheric moments, but Sunn)))O has never done it for me. Earth has some good stuff too.
I wish i was going to Pentemple...lucky bastards. I didnt have the time or the money to go tonight...waiting impatiently for tomorrow night...
Bugger Pentemple, you didn't miss much.
But, fuck me dead, SunnO))) and Boris was easily one of the greatest things I've ever seen.
Black One is pretty good, but some of their other stuff is pretty boring for me. The release with Boris is amazing though.
Lol @ assuming I base a bands music on their image. I'm sure they are a great band, but i just simply cannot 'get into' the genre. I've given it plenty of chances and yeah, not for me i guess
Too right, one of the best nights ever. Attila's performance was fucking amazing, Sunn O))) were brilliant altogether.
i never knew i'd feel this way about sunn o))) but i think i have begun to understand and get into them...shit, i've listened to a lot of creepy ambient stuff in my time but sunn o))) win hands down.
however, i just cant help myself but wonder if these guys go home after a gig of theirs and say, giving each other high fives, "suckers, they paid to see us perform this stupid bullshit live AGAIN!"
do you think these guys are honestly serious about their music? the truth wouldnt matter much, as i've already started enjoying their music, but i just wonder what you guys think. maybe someone who has been to one of their gigs can answer.
this is what you see on stage:
i really like how someone on youtube answered the same question S<issors asked here:
"1. smoke lots of pot
2. stare at the stage
3. imagine they are gods"
hahaha, the band even has some theatrics...throwing the hand back over the shoulder after hitting a chord.
i used to think neurosis would provide the music for the armageddon. now, im confident it will be sun 0))).
You definitely have to be in the mood for Sunn O))). If you aren't in the mood, you will not like it. And the only time you are in the mood is late at night when all of your lights are out and you just want to sit and stare. Then it is perfect.
Has anyone heard My Wall? Hilarious!
Whenever I listen to Sunn O))), after an hour or so, when the album ends, I always doubt my sanity is still with me...
i always liked earth, the band that these guys are obviously paying homage to, but sunn o))) are much more subtle and harder to get into. i always appreciated the fact that they are very courageous with their own form of art, which is very very VERY uncommercial, but i had never understood how one could enjoy the music itself.
now i do.
Great, great band. Unfortunately, some people are not patient enough to get it. If you are like me, remember what hapenned with Opeth on your first listenings (I personnally hated Opeth). Don't judge too fast. Oh and you can name others (I've seen above) such as Earth, and every Doom stuff. For the "insane" ones, get into pure drone music, heh.
Doesn't require patience, it requires a hit of LSD. SUNNO))) is an audio wash of ambient sounds and noises. This is not music, it's garbage. And I've listened to just about every album they've recorded. Get real,man and realize, these cats are laughing all the way to the bank.
You are the garbage and LSD is great, OK!?
Technically, under the dictionary definition, it is music. Also, it can't be garbage because you can't physically place audio in a trash can. Try harder!
