Dennis went on to the international noise conspiracy and the lost patrol band

he seems to be the only one to stay in the 'spotlight'

There were a few people trying to offload tickets under cost price out front of the Palace last night as well.


Ghostface  said about 1 year ago:

I should be in Melbourne this weekend. Freakin' Refused and Radiohead. But I got my Harvest thang going on so that's good too


blake3030  said about 1 year ago:

If anyone wants to sell a ticket for $50. PM me.


steveholt  said about 1 year ago:

Radiohead and Refused in one weekend. Gonna party like its 1999.


MelonHCST  said about 1 year ago:

They broke up in 1998


steveholt  said about 1 year ago:

The song doesn't go lets party like its 1998 does it


gabbo  said about 1 year ago:

no, just rewoke the spirit of 1968.


moo-core  said about 1 year ago:

That is in my top 5 shows ever.

I need to work out what it knocked out, but Dennis' dancing was just about enough to get it there on its own.

I missed this last night. Easily in my top five ever as well. Probably at number one. That could just be the exhilaration of last night still talking.

Dennis' dancing was fucking awesome. Dude is just about the most charismatic frontman I've ever seen.


steveholt  said about 1 year ago:

I was holding out buying a ticket for this hoping to get a Radiohead ticket. But on the back of hearing glowing reviews like this glad I'm seeing Refused now.


moo-core  said about 1 year ago:

I want a ticket for tonight, but I'm all sore and bruised on my hips and under my ribs. And have had even less sleep than yesterday. But Refused.


happycow  said about 1 year ago:

There were people selling tickets outside the venue around 8ish last night, might be worth a shot.

The thing about last night's show...I haven't been that EXCITED at a gig in forever. I frequently enjoy live music, but this was something else altogether, that has maybe happened a handful of time in my gig attending career.

Like the tantric sex of live music or something.


moo-core  said about 1 year ago:

I think I know how you feel hc. I was so energised last night. When those first notes were played, and REFUSED lit up on that curtain...fuuuck. I had tingles down my spine the entire show. It was fucking electric.

I have a really shitty attention span and even at the best of gigs, my mind wonders or I become distracted (particularly in a mosh pit) but for once this was the only thing happening in the world.

This one has stayed with me. I like live music, but this was something entirely different.

anonymous  said about 1 year ago:

Best hives cover band I've seen in ages.


MelonHCST  said about 1 year ago:

Don't you mean ABBA? Sweden right? Hilarious


steveholt  said about 1 year ago:

''Refused are fucking dead'' an absolute standout on the night. Nice to see a reformation band not just going through the motions. Haven't been to a gig seeing a band with that much energy in a long time. Lotta dude in that room last night.


gabbo  said about 1 year ago:

I liked them throwing in tv eye too.


happycow  said about 1 year ago:


Eple  said about 1 month ago:

listened to this first time in ages last night. Still powerful stuff. wish there were more bands like this.


Eple  said about 1 month ago:

I have a story involving swedish exchange students and the international noise conspiracy. Still brings a smile to my face.


hustleandmuscle  said about 1 month ago:

their sister band doughnuts were just so much better


Eple  said about 1 month ago:

oh ok i will have a look.
