It’s been awhile! Sorry for slacking (as if anyone even noticed). New job/the dozens of shows to go to have been harshin my blogging mellow. Life is totally hard, right?
So my BFF went to see Pulp last night (and I went to Chickfactor and saw the Aislers Set which is an entirely different entry; can’t even). She was telling me all about Jarvis’ gyrating hips, and she mentioned that she’d never been so turned on at a show. Ick-factor aside, it got me thinking: When have I been turned on at a show? And I can only think of two examples, and that is the two times I saw The Organ.
The Organ is a Canadian band that was mostly active in the early 2000s. I only discovered them because I went to a random free show in a suburb of Buffalo, and these beautiful ladies were playing and I fell in love. Grab That Gun is a haunting, pop masterpiece. Lots of elements of The Cure, Joy Division and so many pipes laid out on that record (hahah laying pipe).
Doesn’t hurt that Katie Sketch is a freaking dreamboat. I actually think she’s a working model now. Her Morrissey-inspired crooning had me transformed into a puddle. She is one of those rare frontpeople who make you feel like she’s singing right to you, whispering in your ear. Pretty electrifying stuff.
The Organ, “Love, Love, Love”
