Three Line Gig Review - Fields of The Nephilim 5/12/14

Three Line Gig Review - Fields of The Nephilim Shepherds Bush Empire 5th Dec 2014

As the temperature plummeted to bone gnawing temperatures,
the mist slowly lifted and the clouds parted to reveal - The Moon in all her glorious Fullness…

For tonight…

Yes, Tonight is The Night…

The planetary alignment is right.

A teeming crowd

Amassed in a black shroud.

On a chilly Friday evening in the vicinity of Shepherds Bush Green…

The dark wanderer’s footsteps echoed on the pavement as he followed the lonesome trail…

Taking brief comfort in the safety in number of those who were awaiting the messenger’s arrival.

Soon enough he was joined by KiB. And although there was no sign of The Dark Angel his presence was anticipated
(As Mrs Dark Angel had texted to say they were running late).

That night a pact was made, written in blood, the challenge was laid down – review tonight’s gig in three lines.
After enquiring as to whether three sentences was allowable, concession was granted!!!

So here goes…

The first act were unannounced but a respectable amount of noise was generated by this unnamed guitar and drum duo.

Next up, Beanie Top Teenybop pop/rock outfit Him, had a whole horde of hers heaping hitherto unheard of levels of adulation upon them for the duration of their (lengthy) set.

As for Fields of The Nephilim, we witnessed a stunning seriously structured atmospheric/theatrical display from artistes and audience alike, absolutely awesome!


Over.

Words on the bench for the main review: Hat, Shades, Flour, Dry Ice, Strobe.
Thank you very much

One of my fave bands, I was hooked from their 1st few gigs in London at the Marquee club in the mid 1980's. Did they perform Moonchild?

Seeing the Nephs for the first time next month. Never had the chance before, so really looking forward to it. Think The Church are supporting.
