Alison Moyet, Cardiff October 19 & Bristol October 20, 2013 – report
Nov 2013 01

This May Alison Moyet released her album “The Minutes”, her first since the 2007’s “The Turn”. It is a more electronic album then her last couple of adventures and when a tour promoting the album was announced I immediately looked for suitable dates to attend. Oddly enough the only dates I could manage was Bristol and Cardiff, which perhaps is not my first choice of cities to visit, but they both proved to be nice destinations. I really enjoyed the concerts which included 4 Yazoo songs.

Electronic Summer, Brewhouse, Gothenburg, Sweden, August 31-September 1 2012 – report
Sep 2012 04

Electronic Summer is a new indoor festival at the multi venue in Gothenburg, organized by Depeche Mode Party Gothenburg and PK Musik. The former consists of two seasoned people in the electronic scene – Henrik Wittgren and Sebastian Hess – and together they managed to run a very successful event, with a synthpop slant. After a draught of big events in the synth genre here in Sweden there seemed to be an unmet need in people that they could satisfy, and it was very close to sold out. Lots of familiar faces came out for this, and there have been an unanimous praise of the festival afterwards.

During 2011 Kraftwerk introduced a new live show in Munich and in the spring of 2012 Kraftwerk performed 8 nights in a row at the Museum of Modern Art in New York. During these concerts some new 3D projections were shown and continuing that theme it has taken Kraftwerk to the US, Japan, Brazil and to my personal joy Gothenburg and the Way out West festival.
