KMFDM - Bandphoto
Already in June I knew that KMFDM is coming to Berlin. I asked Judit from The Netherlands whether she liked also to go there. After it was clear she will come to Berlin, I bought the tickets and was waiting for this gig. She arrived the day before so we had enough time to talk about other things.
The day of the gig I had to work and was at home at 7 pm. We arrived at K17 1/2 hour before the gig started. The supporting act - Army of the universe started at 9 pm - 3 people on stage (a singer - very self-absorbed, a guitar player - who couldn't really play guitar and a mixmaster for the rest of the sound). It was electro rock - not very ambitious. After some songs some people were going out to have some more to drink. We, too.
When KMFDM started, the venue was almost full. From the first moment they rocked. People felt happy. The last time I saw KMFDM was almost 20 years ago. Now they were two guitar players Jules Hodgson (left side of the stage), Steve White (right side of the stage), the drumer Andy Selway (druming like an animal) and in the middle were Sascha Konietzko (the last origin member and head of KMFDM) and Lucia Cifarelli (female singer - very sexy but no power voice).
There were a lot of new songs I didn't know but very aggressive like KMFDM is. There were 2 or 3 songs I knew before - e.g. Megalomaniac, Adios and DIY. The whole gig was very short (maybe 1 1/2 hours).
After the gig we took some more beer and talked all the time until we arrived at home. I think it was 2 am when I was going to bed. Next day job was waitin for me ...
Here are some videos from other gigs of the 2011 Tour and some good studio versions. Check them out.
