    The hall is looking really really class - there's quite a big lighting rig and mr paul mcadams is at the helm again:D

    T'was a 'good' show badly let down by the sound throughout. It cleaned up near the end, obviously helped by the fact that ASIWYFA have a dedicated soundman.

    Disappointed to be honest, largely down to the sound. What LaFaro got was criminal.

    A great idea & successful venture no doubt but stick to the small to medium sized venues in the meantime lads.

    My opinion of course. Let the backlash begin...

    I was really disappointed with LaFaro: I'm too much of a layman to say what it was but you couldn't hear Jonny to save your life and it just seemed like it was a complete and utter shambles.

    Herb was giving it ninety though, and it was ballsy to play Tuppenny Nudger first. Very ballsy.

    ASIWYFA were very good but there were a few problems in the middle of the set, again to do with sound. I was a little disappointed they didn't do "Don't Waste Time..." but perhaps that was due to the fact the singalong would fall apart like it did at Glasgowbury? I don't know, but I certainly missed it.

    Better than Glasgowbury (the new stuff is great and it was great to hear The Machine) but not as good as Mandela Hall.
  22. avatar DeliriumTremens
    I absolutely adore ASIWYFA but the sound at the start of their set was a little overpowering. It wasnt very well defined, just seemed to be like a wall of noise, when all the lads very giving it stacks you couldnt make things out, i thought it was down to where i was standing.
    But all in all another amazing show from the lads, plus i think i have a bit of a man-crush on chris wee, hes some pup.

    Simply awesome from my standpoint - it's taking some time to sink in fully if truth be told.

    ...but then I'm in love with all the bands on the bill.

    I would say that :)...

    There seemed to be a narrow column down the middle of the hall where the sound was relatively balanced and the bass had some definition, but the farther left or right you went the worse it all got, particularly low bass and kick drum, which were just indistinct boomy noises. At about half-way through ASIWYFA's set I moved right back to near the sound desk, hoping the sound would be optimum there, but bleh.

    Not for about the last 3 years my man - get with the program!!

    As for LaFaro, nothing happen to them but they just got [i:608cb6a0bf]the[/i:608cb6a0bf] worst sound I've ever heard in the Ulster Hall. And I was looking forward to them so much:(
  26. avatar savagebilliards
    crakin' show from the lads, i was so chuffed to see my mates up on that stage! Tight set, awesome light show, cool visuals, but sadly the sound was quite frankly atrocious. spoiled it a wee bit for me as you couldnt hear shit, just a BOOM. in house pa?

    but really, i couldnt give a shit cos they were class! well done boys!

    I was standing by the sound desk for most of it....and loved it.

    Yeah - the sound wasn't amazing. But as a spectacle, it was incredible. And it didn't really matter to me as it was just some great bands, giving it stacks on the biggest night of their lives. Bad sound or not - Lafaro and ASIWYFA played a belter.

    I only saw the last three songs of Cashier No 9, but when they kicked in at the very end, it reminded me why I like that band so much.

    The onyl thing I didn't like was the ASIWYFA visuals. The scratchy, Blair Witch logo was cool, but the rest of it resembled some kind of early 90s Euro-MTV thing.

    But other than that, it was a great night, and it was amazing to see an army of people with the black triangle on their clothes.

    i think the sound was alright.

    i also think lafaro stole the show, there just seemed to be such an atmosphere about them. was blown away
  29. avatar comprachio
    I think the PA really did let the sound down. I wasn't out front for ASIWYFA but for Cashier and LaFaro it was awful imo. Not the fault of the bands (both were great) nor Darzo who was on sound, but just that PA. Muddier than a pigsty.

    I think ASIWYFA didn't get to play their full set but I could be wrong...
  30. avatar InnerCitiesClaud
    I think all the bands played really tight sets.
    Adebisi shank were amazing, and i think they honestly had the best sound probably because there was only 3 of them..

    Cashier No9 if i'm 100% honest, didn't fit the bill. But even still i did enjoy there set and the mixed up a bit instead of just riffs and madness the whole night. They did have some sound problems like the 2nd guitarist's singing and the keyboard guy playing anything other than the keyboard.

    LaFaro were spot on, maybe jonny's vocals could've went up but thats the way he likes it. I was headbangin' the whole way through their set and really enjoyed it. I seriously can't wait for the album!

    ASIWYFA were really let down by the PA. They all gave it stacks and played a technically great set but both guitars were too quiet and i have to say rory's guitar wasn't sounding so good. The EAD strings were really bassy, which i didn't understand. Basically Mandela Hall was a better-sounding gig for them, but i truely respect them for pulling off such a massive gig... Plus the EP is a fuckin' treat :D
  31. avatar savagebilliards
    "Plus the EP is a fuckin' treat" wish i knew i lost the fuckin cd, along with my phone! staff work do before hand maybe was a bad idea!

    just thinkin the show was only 8 too, quality!

    That was an amazing thing to be part of.

    I had a great time remembering my aikido training and being able to stand perfectly still in the mosh while teenageers kncked themselves over trying to bang into me :p Intense fun.

    I quickly got tired of the sound though - it was indeed way too boomy. I went upstairs and the sound was absolutely perfect. Guess that's the Ulster Hall acoustics for you.

    Very impressed with the Reading style visuals, and the lightwork was flawless. A really good show, if perhaps it lost a bit of the raw magic of the ASIWYFA of old. Guess that's what being a pro rock band does for you :)
