    from benjamin:

    incredible show ! playing outside, they're still more powerful.

    'helicon 1' - yeah, they f***in' played it at last, since i wanted it, yeah, yeah, yeah, i was so happy, i just jumped and disturbed so much my neighbours -sorry, but nobody was moving. that rocks, this is really the best mogwai tune, ever! '2 rights make 1 wrong' had a big drum machine, making pretty noises that were hearable. 'jewish hymn' - i don't know how long it lasted. 20, 25 min, more? i'm sure of one thing : everybody was deaf for the pulp show. a shame! it was good too. but that 'jewish hymn'! how loud! how loud! in fact this is the first time in my life i want a mogwai tune to stop. three days after, i still hear a f***ing noise in my left ear. everybody in the audience was trying to protect his ears... they're mad! but it was really, really beautiful. the most astonishing show in my life -and i saw them twice before. i think, even sonic youth or my bloody valentine could not have done that.
