London gigs rock my socks ^_^

Astoria is one of the best venues in central London, just a few minutes away from Centre Point, it is a pity they want to turn it into shops and offices... *sigh*
Anyway, last night we went to see Fantômas. It is interesting to know abut them that they began just before the collapse of Faith No More with a series of spasmic, avant-garde metal songs composed by vocalist Mike Patton. Patton then sent the demos to guitarist Buzz Osborne (of The Melvins), bassist Trevor Dunn (of Mr. Bungle) and drummer Igor Cavalera (of Sepultura) with the intention of forming a Supergroup. Cavalera declined the offer, but recommended who he thought would be perfect for the project: Dave Lombardo of Slayer, who accepted.
Before them two bands performed as well, the second one drew my attention particularly, they are called The Locust, from California. I am posting a part of one of their live acts. Sick shit they are doing and the drummer is exceptional, it's unbelievable what he does on stage.
Great gig ^_^
