The Dead Weather
@ Olympia Paris
Oct 28th 2009
SOLD-OUT Olympia for The Dead Weather. Scalpers are making a small fortune outside.
We didn't see the Support band as we were talking at the bar but the sound seemed too loud.
Not that much to say if you've already seen The Dead Weather @ Cigale (click for Pics setlist & review ) or Canal+ Tv show recording @ L' Album de la semaine ( click for review & pics ).
Same shit as usual , at the time I didn't know the record at all and was a bit surprised @ La Cigale , the day after at Canal+ I thought it was better.
Now I know the record ( and it is disappointing aprt from a couple of tunes ) and songs are much more better live than on cd but this band, is lacking good songs.
Don't get me wrong the show in itself was good , Allison is wild , Jack's a real killer on drums (most of the time ) or guitar ( a couple of songs ) but there's something missing.

Good show but it could have been better.
SETLIST to come soon ...

Message from Patrice Guino ,our lovely photographer : " Sorry for the lousy Pictures , the lightning was shite"

Warren Ellis from The Bad seeds was backstage.
More & more Allison ...

Jack on guitar
Goodbye Paris !
