Wed 5 Mar – Casiotone for the Painfully Alone, Max Tundra

I was running a bit late for this one but we made it in time to buy a couple of cans and take up residence near the stage. Bush Hall is all lovely and carpeted, so we took off our shoes for maximum comfy-dancing. Max Tundra came on wearing a crazy military cape thing, but then took it off before his performance - shame! It didn't matter in the end, Max was amazing.

He played lots of new songs which all sounded very exciting - the new album's on its way hopefully quite soon. Interspersed were a few classics (MBGATE, Lysine, and my favourite Lights, which Max somehow sings live, in spite of it being faster than a hummingbird - gwenan's theory is that it's because he's so small, so he resonates on a higher frequency than the rest of us...)

There was his cover of 'So Long, Farewell' which got us dancing a bit more maniacally than everyone else (apart from this one guy who was really going for it) and then finished off with an absolute EPIC of a track. Looking forward to hearing that on CD!

Casiotone for the Painfully Alone was actually pretty bad. We stayed for a couple of tracks and then headed off for pizza/pub. I guess after the genius of Max everything else seems a little bit dull. Here's to the album launch party...

    Oh man I've always wanted to listen to Casiotone. Because first of all, that name. And second of all because Kirie really likes him/her/them. As for Max Tundra. Yeah I don't know who that is sorry.
