2016.06.29 / The Radio Dept. Live in Hong Kong @ Hang Out

我的瑞典情意結啊。七年前錯過了瑞典dream pop/synthpop樂隊The Radio Dept.的香港演出,這晚總算如願以償,但必須承認演出與想像中有點落差。這次樂隊只有三人來港,沒有鼓手,只有鼓機,演出似乎欠缺張力。台上台下有點疏離,彼此都不投入,氣氛也很平淡,感覺有點像練習的jam session。

許多喜歡的歌曲,如〈Pulling Our Weight〉、〈Keen On Boys〉、〈Bachelor Kisses〉、〈Where Damage Isn’t Already Done〉、〈I Don’t Like It Like This〉等等都沒有放在setlist 上,有點失望。全晚比較喜歡那首叫〈Occupied〉的新歌,電氣感重一點,可以稍微隨拍子跳跳舞。朋友說再次入場都是為了主音Johan的歌聲,沒錯,如果不是靠他那把如夢如幻的溫婉聲線支撐著,我怕未看到一半已倒頭睡著。

話雖如此,其實這晚的演出也不算太糟糕。(因為我看過更糟糕的…)最開心的還是演出前後與bandmates及很久不見的showmates見面,又可以一邊看一邊聊聊音樂的事。下次再見。:)

setlist: Always A Relief / The New Improved Hypocrisy / Sloboda / I Don’t Need Love, I’ve Got My Band / Can’t Be Guilty / A Token Of Gratitude / David / Committed / Heaven’s On Fire / 1995 / Running / I Wanted You To Feel The Same / The Worst Taste In Music / Occupied / Never Follow Suit / [encore] Why Won’t You Talk About It?
