A killing feedback drone thing: good old Neil Young in top form!

von: Michael Engelbrecht Filed under: Blog | TB | Comments off

About a quarter of the way through Neil Young’s concert at London’s 02 arena on Monday, he decided to visit the gates of Hades. As post apolcalyptic wind blew pieces of paper across the stage and lights flashed threateningly, he huddled with members of Crazy Horse to hand-beat guitar strings and conjour feedback in a cacophony of heavy-metal-meets-prog-rock-meets-garage-band.

It went on for 10 to 20 minutes – anarchically excruciating, yet strangely adventurous. But not what many of the people expected or sought. And therein lies the problem – there are (at least) two Neil Young’s – one who is the Americana god of „Harvest“, the other who likes to get down and rock.

Cheerio, Neil, get down and rock and let the walls come tumbling down, in Cologne next month!
