if you think of Mordor as a dark land of wild things, you're probably right. in the local and fantastical sense. here in luvmeland, it was the darkish haunt of local noise. it's now home to ROAR> and it's putting blood back into the mostlymuffled mildwild that is capetown "sound" engineering...
the only thing i know for sure about it is the one thing that's well worth shouting about in a half-deaf town:
the sound rig is friggin brilliant.
listening to Her Pretty Face and Taxi Violence there on friday night was a catharsis. clean sound, cutting through every edge of air, into your bones - taking the music home. when sound is this good, you can hear everything the artists put into the music.
it's a grreat place to sample a band for the first time. again and again.
