Panic at the Living End

Panic at the Disco

To be perfectly honest, I hadn’t realised how long it had been since I last updated. The break? A bit of a fail. But at least I’m doing things in moderation now, instead of running myself into the ground. I’ll do this update in two parts, the first part with the two big bands I’ve shot over the last month, and the second (to come sometime over the weekend) with a few local bands and a night of great music.

Cake or Death?

Firstly, apologies about the title. It doesn’t really fit the subject, but I’m going to find any excuse to slip an Eddie Izzard quote in.

 While browsing the latest issue of Blunt over lunch today, I came across a quote from Scott Owen of The Living End, weighing into the analog recording vs ProTools debate. Seems to adapt to the ever-ongoing film vs digital war, and I really liked the analogy.

 

“You want to be able to record onto tape and get your takes done. Piecing it all together on a computer, there’s no thrill and no real reward in that. If you play a helicopter flight simulator and you crash, you just hit re-set. But if you learn to fly a helicopter and you crash, you die. The thing is, at least when you’re flying you actually get the thrill of flying.”

 

┬áWas from an interview done during the recording of their soon-to-be-released album ‘White Noise’. I’m very much looking forward to it, I’m a big Living End fan, and their last record ‘State of Emergency’ is one of my top 10 favourite albums ever.
