I went off them when they dissed the Alt Right , even though their imagery is fascist going back to Never Let Me Down.

Poor form. Gahan shouldn't have said anything and just have been amibigous like Bowie about his Thin White Duke days.

Let's be fucking honest - DM are kinda fascist in their imagery. Let's be grown up here. And I don't mind it.

What I mean is - I'll wake up tommorow and find out that Nitzer Ebb were really a bunch of commies.

November 15th, 3 Arena then. Tickets on sale this Friday.

I greedily want the setlists they're doing right now. It's quite industrial. Barrel Of A Gun, Corrupt, Wrong. I have a feeling these kind of tracks will be dropped for some of the usual Policy Of Truth etc midway through the tour though.

I wouldn't mind a couple of changes to the setlist tbh, having seen them twice now, in Amsterdam and again this weekend in London. The current setlist is back-loaded a bit in that the second half of the show has the majority of the crowd pleasing hits. The first half is obviously still very good, but might not generate the same buzz amongst the more casual fans.

The gig in London was hugely enjoyable. Great to see the band fill a stadium like that, having been largely written off or ignored for so long by the British media. I'd have a few quibble with the visual stage design and that, but they, Dave in particular, have rarely sounded better.

I'll be there in Dublin, just a pity it is midweek.

Midweek gig is a balls alright.

I'm trying to organise a trip to one of their mainland Europe shows, even though I'm very disappointed in the album.

I'm hoping they release a concert DVD thingy from London, I'd buy that.

It's cack alright. Same exhausted lack of percussion, Marts twangy guitars and 700 year old synths.

Going Backwards is the only track I go back to. They can't make atmospheres anymore.

Id still rate it above their last 2 albums though.
Going backwards, scum, cover me and this is the last time are the stand outs.
Fail is Gores best sung track in a long time.

Those are the top tracks alright. It's not a total waste of time. I liked Sounds Of The Universe although I'm probably the only one. Clean, crisp space age mix of Exciter and Violator I thought.

Got standing tickets anyway.

Very good interview with Mr. Gahan. Him and Martin genuinely don't seem even close to being mates. Gahan's the man. Always seemed like a decent fellow even when he was an absolute waster whereas the rest of them seem a bit pompous at times.
