The band seemed to have no desire to waste any time on the silly hop on and off the stage encore game, as they hammered out a 12-piece-80-minutes set without leaving the stage for a single second. No less than 4 of those were with vocals.
There was a small technical glitch at the start of Werewolf which seemed to be caused by Stuarts' guitar. Quickly the Gibson was traded for a Telecaster and a second try was succesful. Very nice setlist, no real surprises but the skill in how the tunes were played more than made up for it.
Especially the sudden wall of sound in the 3rd act of Mogwai Fear Satan was the most brutal one from the 4 times I heard them play it. Earbruisingly loud. A beast!
The Dortmund crowd seemed quite mellow: There was some movement in the front, but besides me and my friend going completely apeshit in the back there was nothing more than some headnodding going on. The cameraman informed me that the show (or at least a good portion of it) will be broadcast within the next 1.5 months on WDRs' Rockpalast.
