Khanate , Single Unit – Live at Gallery Schaufenster, Oslo 15/5 2004

The Khanate / Single Unit gig was a ripping success. Lots of people, lots of beer, nice weather, more people and more beer. The event started at six with a barbecue but due to a strike charcoal was not to be found anywhere in Oslo. Me and Lars Morell had been helping out Single Unit to fix the stage the day before. The whole thing took place at Schaufenster Gallery, witch is located in a old industrial space. As there was no stage we put carpet on the floor to define an are, ugly green and ugly blue, turned out very nice. Also Lars and I did a wall painting, Khanate vs. Single Unit. I did the Khanate painting, a dungeon scene, and Lars did a piece full of insects crawling around and forming letters spelling out Single Unit.

There was some nervousity about the turnout of people. All clubs in Oslo had turned down Khanate, as they would scar away good paying customers on a Saturday. But with the help of some e-mail lists, poster, flyer handout and word by mouth 150 people came out to drink beer in the parking lot outside. This was a mix of crowds, art geeks, electronica geeks and metal geeks. Prada shirts next to Iron Maiden shirts and bristles armband, great atmosphere. Everybody seemed happy. All this people were enough to fill out the room.

Single Unit was firs out, putting on a set with “Family of Forces” songs and impro noise. New this time was his lightshow. Using ten work lights placed on the floor and hanging from the sealing, controlled by a sequencer. This added visual element created a hares, industrial, explosive atmosphere to his performance and boosted the intensity 1000 times. Perfect, 10 points! The set was short and intense, less than 30 minutes. No fuck ups with the equipment this time.

Khanate! Khanate! Khanate! Khanate!

The gods of slow, sludgy noise doooom. I can’t tell how much I have been looking forward to this gig. They came on and opened up with “Commuted” from new record “Things Viral”. I loved this on record but live it was so much more intense. No safety net, the slowness of the music is a balance act. They are walking on the line were the threat is the collapse of the song. You are forced to listen to the sound. Heavy down tuned guitars, intonations, feedback, sloooooow. Will you remember the last not when the next is played? Its like Morton Feldman had written chamber music for a metal band. Zen metal!

Also important factor is their hypnotic stage presence. Minimal movement and gestures. Singer Alan Dubins three or maybe four posses repeated thru the set. Holding the microphone out like it was a candle or a dagger, staring at nothing. As far as I could see the audience was sticking around. Everybody was standing still and just calmly watching. The band managed to play four songs in fifty minutes. I wanted more, like “Skin coat” but this is till one of the best shows I seen in a long time.

They also had a lot of cool merch with them, killer design t-shirts, CDs, LPs, etc. They also hade a live DVD sold only on this tour, but it didn’t work on my DVD player…..aaaaaarrrrgggghhhh!!!

Also very nice to see Andy Hartwell again, who hade come along as merch guy.

Afterwards we went to a bar and thanks to Alan’s killer weed I was a bit lost. It was very nice talking to Steve about his other bands and design projects, priceless listening to Tim trying explain to what Khanate sounded like, when asked by a drunk chick.

Also a circle came to close when I could chat with my teenage years godz Jim Plotkin and Alan Dubin from Old. Drop any name of anyone from the music buiss and you get a full on crazy anecdote back. Hope to see these guys soon again with Khanate or their other killer projects.
