Repairs, Primitive Calcuators – Nihilistic Orbs Showcase, The Liberty Social, Melbourne, VIC (2013-11-21)

Nihilistic Orbs PosterThis was an awesome night put on by Nihilistic Orbs to celebrate the life of and commemorate the label. In retrospect, I wish that I had stayed longer and at least caught Sky Needle and Nun (not to mention Four Door, who I had already seen that day). Unfortunately the show clashed with another happening just down the road; Hierophants, Bonniwells, The Clits and UV Race at The Lounge (of which you can find a fantastic soundboard recording), and I left early to go to that. These two recordings that I did get however, were really good. Recorded from the right of stage, pretty much directly in front of the monitor.

Other than some pretty frustrating technical malfunctions (the drum machine intermittently drops out for much of the first half or so of the set), this show was awesome. I’d heard Repairs’ Nihilistic Orbs 7″, but had never had the chance to see them live until this gig – great stuff.

Total time 20mins.

Primitive Calculators forgot to bring their backing tracks to the gig with them, so instead they improvised with vocals and handheld synthesizers over the top of Chrome Dome tracks.
