The Last Cry + Berlin Black – Leeds (pre-Flock gig!)

15 Nov

Flock is Leeds’ notorious monthly goth and industrial night, running on the first Saturday of the month at The Library on Woodhouse Lane. “Upstairs at the Library” is an excellent 200 capacity venue similar in size and layout to the Phono in days gone by.

If you’re unfamiliar with The Library, it’s less than a couple of minutes walk from the University Student’s Union, where the Wendyhouse is held.

229 Woodhouse Lane, Leeds, LS2 3AP

Directions on the Flock website:

The Last Cry (as they are now) formed 4 years ago, taking their cues from bands like The Cure and Depeche Mode, fashioning a dark atmospheric and dramatic wall of sound which exhibits a coherency, intensity and emotional depth. The band recently released their incredible self-produced debut album ‘Walking to the Edge’ and last played Leedsto a packed Library in March.

Berlin Black began in 2008 when Chris Banshee (vocals and keyboards) wrote a collection of songs that didn’t fit his then band, Screaming Banshee Aircrew. Since the latter’s demise, Chris has turned Berlin Black into a full band, including some of his former Banshee bandmates. Berlin Black blur the line between post-punk and glam rock, influenced by “the classic goth bands such as Bauhaus and Siouxsie, along with the greats from the Glam rock era such as Bowie and Iggy Pop“. But don’t let ‘glam rock’ tag put you off, Berlin Black embrace the flambouyancy of glam, but their music has a very dark undertone, and a sense of subtlety you wouldn’t associate with the genre.
