Midnight Sun : Sounds Of Norway Unity Theatre, Liverpool 27 May 2003
It was with some trepidation that I went to Liverpool to see the 21st century’s version of the “package tour”. I’d been told, by someone whose opinion I trust, that most of the evening had been crap when he saw it. In fact he was a bit more splenetic than that. Still you have to find out for yourself, don’t you ?
A ton of print has been spent enthusing over the exciting newness of music coming out of Norway. I agree with some of it. I haven’t heard it all. But I have heard Supersilent, who effectively headline this bill. Their last CD in particular is a favourite. I was hoping that they would prove to be a better live experience than on the first night of the tour. More of that later.
