Towards a Transformative Hermeneutics of Quantum Gravity


Four Tet Live @ Exeter's Cavern Club, October 11th 2003


Why Electronic Music Doesn't Really Work Live, Especially in a RockTM Venue

I mean what are you meant to do? Dance? Pogo? Sing-a-long? Nod your head? Cheer when you recognise a bit of a song from his latest critically-acclaimed album, no matter how mangled-up and spasticated Kieron has chanced to make it this evening? Get really high? Retreat to the bar? Chat up student girls in vest-tops? I saw people doing all these things. None of them looked convinced (especially the student girls).

So what's the problem? Well, for a start, visually, to watch Four Tet is essentially to watch someone play a computer game whilst nodding their head to abstract techno.

Ah fuck it.

It's nearly quarter to one in the morning and I can't actually focus on the fucking screen. I need to go to bed. Tomorrow I have to watch Brazil eat Jamaica and write about Luke Vibert. I have lots of interesting thoughts about Four Tet live which I'll edit into this post when I can be arsed.

Good night and God Bless.
