You know the lyrics of this song, “It all started with the big bang!”. Well, this is how Spacefest 2019 started on Friday. A Bing Bang of pointless saturated noisy guitar sounds with Krzta. I have to admit that it was painful to hear.
Thanks, on the Drizzly Grizzly stage was Dynasonic to cool down our sore eardrums. It was a nice performance, one of the strongest that evening. It was musical poetry with a happy bass player and a hint of electro.
But then… yes, then came The Cosmic Dead. What a show! 3 masterpieces of a song in one hour. The slow start leading to the first lyric drowned in exploding sounds in the first song was totally hypnotizing & intoxicating. They are from Glasgow – and obviously anti-brexit – formed in 2010 and are an incredible band to see live without any cosmetic lights or fancy musical instruments.
After this hell of a performance, something really more artistic, Rogulus X Szwelas und Gos + Czerkas + Ika. I was still under the influence of The Cosmic Dead so I couldn’t appreciate it truly.
Finally, we had KSAS.
The first day of Spacefest was a rollercoaster of emotions. Some bands I really loved, some other I found soporific. The second day was totally different with quality shows all evening. But that will be for another day.
