Otomo Yoshihide & Paal Nilssen-Love live in Bergen
I just have to tell you I heard Otomo Yoshihide (guitar) and Paal Nilssen-Love (drums) playing a great gig in front of 20 - 30 people in a small café in Bergen last night.
What a duo! During the first part of the concert, they dished out noise, impro, rock(?), soundscapes and you name it, muscular and loud as hell, with tender moments in between the blow outs.
The second (and much shorter) part of the concert was more minimalistic, with Yoshihide hitting the guitar, more than playing the strings to make sounds. Worked fine too.
I feel lucky to be able to watch and listen to artists like these guys, sitting just a few meters away. Arenas? Not for me, thanks!
