Having to hit a festival stage visually naked when you have a crowd like Nova Rock (drunk and drugged and generally abysmal) is unfortunate.

Ein leider nur müder Abklatsch vergangener Glanzzeiten waren die Smashing Pumpkins: Die US-Alternative-Gruppe, die in den 1990ern zu den prägendsten Acts des Genres zählte, lieferte eine Darbietung, die die Bezeichnung "Show" kaum verdiente. Zwar gab es dank legendärer Nummern wie dem Schnellschuss "Zero", dem mächtigen "Bullet With Butterfly Wings" oder dem melancholischen "Disarm" einige schöne Momente zu erleben. Aber bei Billy Corgan und Co war an diesem Abend lediglich Dienst nach Vorschrift angesagt - abgedroschene Publikumsanimation und ein deplatziertes "Vienna!" inklusive. War schon die aktuelle Platte "Shiny and Oh So Bright" eine Enttäuschung, so entschädigten diese 90 Minuten leider nicht wirklich dafür.

ouch. Rock im Park reviews weren't good either, no chanting to GLOW.
While I can imagine that they might not be full of energy every night on this tour and all, sterile routine even, I still don't understand how anyone can't hear how good they sound? Does it really matter in row 305 at a festival if the guys in the front smile at you?
Then again I did hear the Bambam years and after, the Euro crowds and reviewers haven't, maybe they expect to time travel straight back to 1996.

They should have hired "The Naked Man" for 1996 nostalgia. And gutting the audience...

two fun facts about nova rock yesterday:

1) during one song billy asked james: "do you want to sing your favorite song?" and james then teased "friday i'm in love".

why did they do that? because after them the cure was headlining the day

2) after "just like heaven" robert said: "that sounded like billy, hu?"

Bloody hell JC. (the nova rock everlasting gaze clip)

I saw the End Times tour with JC too, he seems to be in a very different spot now. He is always good and all that, but he didn't sound like this a couple of years ago. I don't understand drumming well enough, is it because the rest of the band is tight enough now to allow him to go on a roll like this, or because he enjoys it more, or a bit of both?

Gotta say that James's whammy pedal stuff on Superchrist makes it sound very Machina-esque.

1) he rediscovered coke, 2) they are paying him more, 3) the band is just in a better place - even BC is acting like he means it again, and not just acting like he is acting like he means it again

There is no way Jimmy is on drugs. I think he just forgot how to play rock drums after playing with jazz boffins for so long.

They were sounding pretty good last summer, and now that they’ve been doing shows for a year their cohesion and power has increased. It’s like they’ve tapped into their old fire and it’s returning.

This to me sounds as good as the band was sounding in the late machina your, and that’s pretty dang good imo.

I just saw the cure playing in Dublin. Just Mustard, The Twilight Sad and Ride played before them, and we could see Robert and the band watching their concerts from the side of the side as well. RS is a cool!

I'm seeing the same line-up in Glasgow later in the summer + Mogwai. I may actually die of happiness.
