You know Fantomas is going to be good as anything that Mike Patton touches turns to gold. Mr patton has been involved in many projects over the years so there is a good chance you've heard of at least on of them such as Faith no more, Peeping Tom (who I've also seen), Mr Bungle, Tomahawk, the Dillenger escape plan, Loveage and has worked with many other artists.
The first band on stage was an Italian band called Zu, it's hard to pigeon hole this band into a genre and to be honest i care little for genres but if i must describe them i would say they are a fusion of metal and jazz. The band consists of three members one playing the biggest saxophone I've ever seen a drummer and a guy on bass who uses foot pedals to alter the sound at one point it sounded like bagpipes! This band was awesome i personally felt they stole the show and my friend is getting me one of their albums for Christmas,yay.
Second band to take to the stage was the Locust, I've their music before and was very impressed and was greatly anticipating their live performance maybe that's why i was a little disappointed. Considering the very aggressive style of their music i had expected a very energetic performance but they just stood rooted to the spot in their fly costumes, maybe they were having a off day.
Then it was time for the headline act Fantomas who would be performing their album the directors cut which is their take on the music from popular films such as the God farther and Rosemary's baby. WOW it was amazing how they managed to recreate the album as it very complex featuring many fast changes in musical styles.
Unfortunately i didn't take my camera to this so have no photos to upload :(
