Raymonde Howard - Salle Des Fêtes - December 19th 2010

Band : Raymonde Howard
Venue : Salle Des Fêtes
Town (country) : Luriecq (France)
Date : December 19th 2010
Grade : 3/5

Setlist :

Comments : The band and I almost didn't make it due to snow storms (you know that France cannot deal with snow...), but I am glad we did. The atmosphere was very different than last week's, a warmer audience maybe due to the countryside location? Another nice show, quite similar to last week's in terms of setlist, but with one extra unplanned encore.

Raymonde Howard - Kraspek Myzik - December 12th 2010

Band : Raymonde Howard
Venue : Kraspek Myzik
Town (country) : Lyon (France)
Date : December 12th 2010
Grade : 3/5

Setlist :
The Naked Line
Lychee Liquor
The Raincoats Are Here
Who's Got The Girls
The Sculptress
Between The Lines
Les Visteurs
Alex & The Ramps
Fuck You

Comments : I never thought I would see another show at my old headquarters, having been shut down by the city of Lyon 8 years ago. It was nice to see Laetitia and Fabrice after their Montreal show despite my jetlag. No big surprises in the setlist with only 1 old song played ("Between The Lines"), and a brand new track called "Les Visiteurs" (I have no clue if this is related to the famous French movie of the same name).

Killing Joke - Cabaret Juste Pour Rire - December 5th 2010

Band : Killing Joke
Venue : Cabaret Juste Pour Rire
Town (country) : Montreal, QC (Canada)
Date : September 5th 2010
Grade : 4/5

Setlist :
Tomorrow's World
Absolute Dissent
European Super State
This World Hell
Fall Of Because
Ghosts Of Ladbroke Grove
The Great Cull
The Wait

Comments : Rescheduled from the Spring, I got a bit scared of another cancellation when it started to snow quite heavily today. Great to see a full band reunion at last after a terrible show in Lyon in 2006. A very cool atmosphere on stage, the band often straying from the actual setlist. The songs from the new album did not particularily appeal to me but the old ones were truly fantastic. I was only disappointed not to hear Love Like Blood tonight after seeing that it had been played on this tour. Not as memorable as the 2003 tour, but a really great show anyways.
