Review of the ABATTOIR performance at STEIM's Local Stop concert

On March 12 ABATTOIR played a concert at STEIM again - where it all started in May 2008. After that initial period of studio recordings and concerts, Audrey and myself did a short tour (6 concerts in a week) in November 2008. After the Cologne gig on March 5 this was our second this year. And it was good! Amazing how comfortable it feels, never that feeling of having to play to avoid silences, or having to stop playing because the other cannot be heard. The audience was also captured, judging by the big applause and the nice comments after the concert. The whole thing was recorded, and a part will actually end up on the CD, to be released probably in June on Evil Rabbit Records. An excerpt can be heard on the ABATTOIR page.
