Relight the BASII gig chat

Nice little mix bag of musical items on today little show, as I had the pleasure of reliving the Basildon Synth Festival – BASII, with some of the interview I was lucky to do at last weekends gig with Space-buoy and Ba5ic– along with some of music from the other bands that played.

The event itself, was held in a Football club in Basildon, and was packed each of the two night with not just locals, but with German, French and Swedish music fans….and few more european nationals. This made BASII feel really international, and to add to that notion, a Band called Shiny Darkness was there, all the way from France.

Friday night saw Blancmange topping the bill, and Top of the billing on Saturday was a band muted as the best Depeche Mode Tribute band ever.. ‘Speak and Spell’; who I must say they were spot on and I found it hard to fault the close sound resemblance to Depeche Mode. Every band and DJ played an amazing set, and the sound & light system was truly impressive, for a venue such as a footy club….. all in all value for money and great music… Roll on BASIII I say…

 

BASII

Twofer was inspired by the band Queen show story, they are to have a special tenth anniversary show of ‘We will rock you’, in the west end, were they plan to use special technology to some how bring the late Freddy Mercury into the show – so we played, ‘Bicycle Race’ and ‘The show must go on’
