Neilson, Youngs & Kneale
Neilson & Youngs were the highlight of a great Volcanic Tongue night, which also featured Kneale playing a weirdly rave-ish set, and Opaque doing their ‘masked highwaymen of feedback drone’ thing. The latter, excellent as usual, look dangerously like a supergroup nowadays—formerly a two-piece, members now include Nackt Insekten, Noma and frontperson/Kovorox label-founder Kylie Minoise (not their real names).
Also of note: inspired by a bloke in the crowd who stank like an old whore’s duvet, Guy, Len, Dave Clark and myself formulated a new entertainment concept, drawing on the immersive, often distressing, qualities of noise, but limited to olfactory sensation. We call it nase.
