This will be my first show at the Walker and with Halloween in the air, it is going to be an indescribable evening.
I have been reading up on GGD to prepare for the experience and this is what I have found:
GGD have left a sporadic, almost shadowy, impression upon people.
They’ll surface to play a clutch of shows only to disappear again.
The lucky [ticket] holders were treated to the kind of mesmerizing experience we have come to expect from these mystic experimentalists.
Gang Gang Dance is a musical vehicle without brakes, constantly innovating and dropping material out the rear.
I imagine my night with GGD this Saturday will be somewhat shabby exotic in essence with some otherworldly aspect to it.
For fans that know exactly what they are getting into:
The band’s DVD release, Retina Riddim, was originally scheduled for release in December, but now will be available in CD-R format at GGD’s merch tables, with the official release following in January. The DVD is part concert film, part album and unreleased material remix and part conceptual film.
For those new to GGD like me, this will help complete their elusive picture: ohmyrockness.com.
See you there! Michèle
P.S. Ask me what else.
