Secret Birds @ Ric's (20.6.08)

Secret Birds played Ric's on Friday night. All three members of I Heart Hiroshima were in the band, plus the three recent 'regular' members (so that's two drummers, three guitarists and a bassist). They played three chords repeatedly for half an hour. It sounded like Sunn O))) covering Neil Young's 'Cortez The Killer'.

That's really all I have to say about it.


Edit: ok, so apparently it actually WAS a half hour cover of Cortez The Killer. There you go.

I think you'll find it actually was Cortez The Killer.

haha, i thought it might have been. matt (ihh) was singing but there was no way i could make out anything of him, the rest of band completely drowned him out.

oh well, at least i kind of picked it...

Fuck, I'm glad I wasn't there. If I saw some band and they played three chords for half an hour there would've been a fucken riot baby!

there were more than 3 chords but yeah each to their own. myself and lots of others thought it ruled.

Blank Realm were also amazing, like an epic Einsturzende Neubauten

there were more than 3?

and yes, in case anyone was wondering, i liked this show a lot.

blank realm i'd seen once before and thought they were ok, but last night they seemed better (judging by the 5-10minutes of the end of their set that i saw).

Sweet, I can't believe Blank Realm played Ric's. Awesome peeps. Wish I'd known about this. Get on top of yr "Gigs of the Week", BH:)

actually, i stopped doing gigs of the week a month or so ago. i figured noone would notice.

sometimes we'll probably make mention of certain gigs that we feel warrant a mention (eg: the no culture festival, or shows at the hangar which often aren't listed in the gig guide).

i suppose that if we get a whole bunch of people asking for gigs of the week then i guess i'll do them.

I liked your gig of the week. I also thought it was one of Blank Realm's best sets I've seen. Sitting outside was good as it was a reasonable volume plus you could watch the security guards' faces. I started thinking 'you know, if the just broke out in singing here it would be excellent' and then they did.

secret birds bored me.
