Muff Potter / Ghost Of Tom Joad / Videoclub
28.02.09 FZW, DortmundThe FZW closed down after over 40 years and three bands from Münster had the honour of playing the last gig at that wonderful venue.
First up were Videoclub, Bloc Party epigones who came so close to the original that the lack of originality didn't really matter as their playing was really awesome.
Then came Ghost Of Tom Joad. while the old songs from No Sleep Until Ostkreuz really rocked the new tracks from their current album Matterhorn were a bit too poppy.
The FZW had always been a sweatbox and tonight made no difference. The sold out club was packed and Muff Potter got the crowd going. Unfortunately, they focused on their newer output, especially tracks from Steady Fremdkörper and also some tunes from the forthcoming album Gute Aussicht. As I prefer their old hits (like 100 Kilo from Bordsteinkantengeschichten) it wasn't their best show for me but a good one nonetheless.
