The Fortnight Spin

Page 2 of 2

Ten years after PRINCESS DI kicked the can, fanboy number one ELTON JOHN (September 18, Kremlin Palace, 19:00) is coming to town. Presumably he'll sing that song about candles in the wind and shit, as well as a bunch of others, some of which suck a lot, and some which are more or less tolerable, like that one about that kid Daniel.

The only reason to go see THE BLACK EYED PEAS (September 20, Khodinka Ice Palace, 20:00) will be to see if their skank lead singer pisses herself on stage. I mean, she did it once, so we can hope it'll happen again, right?

In case anyone cares, there once was a middling German metal band called ACCEPT. They broke up, and the singer started a new band, U.D.O. (September 21, Tochka, 20:00). Rawk me, Friedrich.

I've managed to catch NAMOSH (September 21, 1171, 22:00) once or twice in the past, at Vodka Bar and Zhest - great gigs both. Namosh is a whirling dervish electro rocker from Berlin who goes completely nuts on stage.

Remember when everyone was hoping electroclash would take over the world? Psyche! It failed because of shitty ass bands like FISCHERSPOONER. Namosh makes you remember that there's always been so much better stuff out there.

Slovenia's LAIBACH (September 22-23, Ikra, 20:00) have spent the better part of the last thirty years playing around with fascist imagery and deconstructing pop culture. Their style (aesthetically, if not musically), influenced RAMMSTEIN, so much so that they've been called "Laibach for children," with Laibach being referred to as "Rammstein for adults." The band has been accused of being far left, and far right, leaving many to wonder if they're in on the joke, or if they are the joke. Whatever. Here's some trivia for you: Laibaich is what the Nazis called Ljubljana.

Although Ikra's site tells you this is his first time in Moscow, don't be fooled: KID606 (September 22, Ikra, 23:59) came here once before. The Venezuelan-born, California-raised Kid has spent the better part of the last decade deconstructing popular music and reshaping it into his own fucked up but beautiful style. He's remixed a seemingly random pallate of artists: DEPECHE MODE, THE LOCUST, PEACHES and SUPPER FURRY ANIMALS, among others, but his fusion of disparate musical styles is what sets him apart.

Although the name BOHREN & DER CLUB OF GORE (September 22, Dom, 20:00) certainly sounds spooky and metal, it's much more ambient and jazzy. Unsurprisingly, the German band formed 20 years ago as a metal act. After shaking of that genre's constraints, the band moved into a crossover of jazz, metal and ambient rock, which they've been pushing out for the last 15 years. We hear David Lynch is a big fan and David Cronenberg is considering them for a score.
