I went to the Bull and Gate last night, as a friend's band (Suzerain) were playing. I caught the last two bands: Veto Silver were pretty good; they call themselves "electro fuelled art pop" sound like something from the early 80s; Duran Duran meets Depeche Mode or somesuch, and looked like a more fashiongoth Interpol. Their songs, music and stage presence were consistently strong, with a good grasp of the (synth-)pop sensibility. Anyway, I've ordered their EP (from this label), and also ordered the "Robopop Volume 1" compilation the label has, which has among others Alpine Stars, Client and Baxendale.

Suzerain were pretty good too; they're somewhere between Bowie, Duran Duran and Hot Hot Heat or something. They played mostly new songs (well, newer than the last time I saw them, which was a while ago).

I took my camcorder with me to film the gig, though ran out of batteries so didn't film much of it. I have about 1 3/4 Veto Silver songs and 3/4 of the first Suzerain one, waiting to be pulled off a DV tape. I haven't looked through it properly, but the video and sound seems to have turned out remarkably well; it's good that they're putting proper microphones in camcorders (as opposed to the piece-of-shit ones they put in still cameras that do video).
