Wolf Eyes – Mono, Glasgow

Posted: June 20th, 2005, by Marceline Smith

We played with Wolf Eyes last night and it was FUN. The Wolf Eyes soundcheck was a thing of hilarious wonder as they started up something that made the noise of a revving motorcycle and then did a mic check of “CHECK CHECK WAAAAAAAAAARGH WOOOOOOAAARGH CHECK!” over it. Awesome. We seemed to go down pretty well although it was very weird playing in daylight and my hands were shaking all the way through even though I didn’t feel that nervous. Our egos were bruised somewhat by every single person in the venue immediately getting up and running over to the stage when Wolf Eyes started.

I’d been hearing varying things about the Wolf Eyes live show ranging from head breaking scaryness to lameass noise and unsurprisingly it turned out somewhere in the middle. They started off building up some quite mesmerising washes of subdued electronic noise that almost put me to sleep it was so relaxing and then had me sitting with a stupid smile on my face. After that they added in some heavy riffery and waves of searing feedback which was fantastic for a while and then got a bit dull in its unchangingness. They should stop trying to be scary and just make noise.
