Polaroids # 13

!!! live @ Coliseu dos Recreios, Lisbon (12-07-2007)

To fully understand this band, you definitely have to see them live. They're an unstoppable and electrifying groove machine, taking the stage by storm with an hallucinating performance and an unbelievable presence of vocalist Nic Offer, half frantic-aerobics-teacher, half affected-rock-star-poser, culminating with his unexpected descent into the audience for some crazy moments. So much energy and it was only 8:30 pm...

Fischerspooner live @ Coliseu dos Recreios, Lisbon (12-07-2007)

After a blah-performance from Air and consequently me getting already half-asleep, nothing would prepare my mind for what was to follow. I have to confess that I find Fischerspooner's music just OK and nothing really extraordinary, but their live show is a totally different story. A visually-ellaborated performance full of custom changes, ellegant coreographies and a retro-futuristic imaginary virtually stole the evening and, for over an hour, their regular electro-songs transformed themselves into generational anthems. Just wow!
