Thursday night - The Portrait Elixa

toolfan 3 Jun 2004 13:54

my first visit to the new indie initiative and i was spun out by the 2nd band that played - portrait elixa (curious to know the meaning behind the name??). the dudes art that filled the stage was a visual treat! thats what we need here, something a bit different. bands are all sounding the same. i know rock and pop is the 'in thing' (we seem to like only what everyone else likes) but i rekon bands like this explore something that, like tool and a perfect circle etc, goes out of the boundries of what music 'should' be. 3 cheers guys! hope to hear more of your shit. I also dug the next band, jika. good shit going on with the percussion etc. im sick of rock and pop and love to see musos who have the balls to do something a bit different!!!! we need more depth and exploration out there in the melbourne scene! isnt everyone sick of all the rock/pop????</title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div></title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div>

We'll be supporting them at the Armadale on the 18th of June. I've heard a lot of positive things about this band, looking forward to playing on the same bill.</title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div></title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div>

I have seen Portrait Elixa and while I admire their playing skills, they played a cd with tool on it right before they got on stage, it just seemed they were trying to copy them. They need to distance themselves from tool and get their own identity A few less effects on vocals would be nice too. Having said all that they were still entertaining.</title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div></title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div>

Hey splinta hows tricks, not once have we ever had control over the music played before we go on stage, always to busy!(we came out to gun's and roses last time,we couldn't give a shit!) The closest we've come to controlling the sound is a sample we come out to on the odd occasion...................................................................</title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div></title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div>

yeah look i gotta agree with dimsim. Ive seen t.p.e, and fuck they are one of the more different acts going around with their set-up (stage props, musical structures). but more to the point ive seen them three times now and each time TOOL have been playing over the p/a before set. Not uncanny, and not a coincidence, dudes, it looks like you are comparing yourselves to the best, and it can't be beat. Play some Hanson or Billy Ray Cirus so the audience, can take in all the aspects of your music and not be faced with the task of comparing or trying to see what you have tried to achieve by playing TOOL. Constructive critism man, take it aboard and sail away like enya.</title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div></title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div>
