The Psychic Paramount - Kafé Myzik - December 13th 2002














Band : The Psychic Paramount
Venue : Kafé Myzik
Town (country) : Lyon (France)
Date : December 13th 2002
Grade : 5/5

Setlist :
n/a

Comments : I went to see the show for the opening band and I am really happy I stuck around for the main act. The atmosphere on stage was extremely tense (mainly because of tension between the Japanese drummer and the rest of the band). What could have been a train wreck turned into an excellent improvised concert. Truly memorable.

Comments : A great local act from that time period, a nice industrial set in the true sense of the word. I am still searching for their deleted CDr release on SK Records.
