Oregon, and I wouldn't go to that show if I DID live in New York because with the possible exception of Grails, I don't really have any interest in seeing any of those bands. I'd also rather stick a drill into my skull than sit through Sunn O))) ever again.

questions:

1. Do you like drone/doom at all?

2. How was the Sunn show, particularly the low bass tones? (which I hear are like, the brown noise)

depends <lol at that coming after brown noise> on what bands you're considering to be drone or doom. if they're anything like Sunn O))), then no. that shit's garbage.

the show was yeeech. I saw them at Roskilde. I should have known better than to see them since they didn't have a drummer, but I wasn't expecting anything THAT bad. I could give a fuck less about the tones, as it's just BWWWAAHHHHHHHHH - BWWWWAHHHHHHHH - DRRROOOOOOOOOOOOO - BWWWWAHHHHHHHH. I managed to make it through the set, but only because Isis were coming on next and I wanted to be up front for them.

afterwards, Attila (who was handling vocals), a couple of dudes from Enslaved and Aaron Turner had the audacity to talk about how Sunn O))) were somehow great. seriously, fucking ANYONE can play that shit.

honest question, not trying to hate on you guys for listening to them... but what the hell is it about Sunn O))) that you like so much?

well, uhm, albumwise i just like putting it up as background music. It's not that i go and put up a Sunn0))) album to listen to certain songs. Just (loud volumewise) background stuff with a certain atmosphere. And i think they're doing a good job in creating a certain atmosphere.

Live, it's just the experience of the huge wall of bass coming at you. In Paradiso (Amsterdam) the sound was so good and loud, and so was the lightshow. But the show i recorded over here in Groningen lacked some of that quality, and than it becomes too long.

The main reason I like this style of music is the textures of the guitar and bass. I do usually like at least SOME drums with my doom, but bands like SUNN can pull it off, like old drumless Earth stuff like Earth 2.

i like the whole "suffocating" feeling of it. is fun. also, some of the slightly faster sunn is very hypnotic (Which is also get off on in a lot of later Isis).
